40-Pound Catfish Swallows 20-inch Bass

_"We took [the catfish] on shore and opened his mouth to see what the problem was. We noticed his stomach was full of air and huge. We found a tail protruding from his throat. A pair of Vise Grips was used to pull the fish out. It was a 20-inch smallmouth bass, partially decomposed . . . .

_"After removing the fish, the cat's stomach was smaller and he was relieved. I immediately put him back in the water and off he went."
