I am a native Oklahoman attending college at DePauw University, a small liberal arts school in Greencastle, Indiana. For my senior year (this coming
school year), I will be presenting an Honor Scholar thesis. The topic I have selected is something along the lines of "The Myth, Legend, and Pursuit
of the Monster Catfish in America" with a special focus on the midwest and Oklahoma. Since I will be home for the summer in what can basically be
called "Monster Catfish Alley", I'm trying to get a lot of research done in these next couple of months.
If anyone can share with me their personal stories, sightings, campfire tales, pictures, etc., please, please do so!! I've got enough vague "monster
catfish at the base of the dam" stories to fill a book, so if you have one, make sure it's firsthand or at least a detailed secondhand account.
Remember that I'm looking for North American tales, as we're all well aware of the giant catfish (such as the Wels) of Europe, Asia, and South
Thank you thank you!
