We don't know where the cat fish came from and we don't have a licence for them so they have to go, but because of the size of the water and because they are quite a big beast no-one has been able to hook them. Some guy last year got it close to the bank, but it was more than 100lb so he lost it.
The catfish have been known to take ducks off of the surface, they will eat anything.
