I also met a guy once who told me that he used to be an underwater welder. He said he quit when he was welding under a bridge one day. He thought he was standing on the base of the river. All of a sudden he felt the ground move under his feet. He wasn't on the bottom. He was standing on top of the biggest fish he had ever seen! It scared him so bad he never went back. Of course I have no way of verifying that story.
I have heard stories all my life about these fish. Since the advent of the internet and Animal Planet I have learned that similiar stories exist all over the country and all over the planet. Seems to me some of them must be based in fact.
I sure hope so. I'll keep tryin'
