Avid Angler Reels In Incredible Catch Fishing In The Kiski River


AN INCREDIBLE CATCH TONIGHT, THIS MAN SAID HE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR YEARS TO FIND ONE. SO WHAT IS IT? AND WHY IS IT SO SPECIAL? SOME OF YOU MAY FIND THIS STORY A LITTLE BIT FISHY, BUT MANY FOLKS IN THE APOLLO AREA OF ARMSTRONG COUNTY ARE TALKING ABOUT. AN AREA FISHMAN HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE WHEN HE SAW WHAT HAD LATCHED ONTO HIS LINE. I CAN’T — CAUGHT A COUPLE CATFISH, AND THE HELL BENDER SHOWED UP, SO I CALLED IT A NIGHT. WE CAUGHT UP WITH HIM ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER WITH HIS CHILDREN. EARLIER THIS WEEK, NOT FAR FROM THIS SPOT, HE MADE A MOST UNUSUAL CATCH. HE TOOK THIS VIDEO BEFORE TOSSING IT BACK INTO THE RIVER. IT IS A HELL BENDER, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS A GIANT SALAMANDER. I PULLED IT OUT OF THE WATER AND GOT A LOOK AT IT, I WAS SHOCKED, I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. HE IS AN AVID FISHERMAN WHO USUALLY ENDS UP WITH A SMALL MOUTH BASS OR TROUT ON HIS LINE, BUT THIS ONE LEFT HIM SPEECHLESS, HE POSTED A VIDEO ON FACEBOOK AND IMMEDIATELY GOT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF COMMENTS. IT WAS 17 OR 18 INCHES AT LEAST, IT WAS VERY SLIMY, VERY SLIPPERY, AND WHEN I WENT TO TAKE THE HOOK OUT OF HIS MOUTH, HE GAVE ME A BITE, HE WAS FEISTY. FOR NOW, HE IS BACK IN HIS OWN ELEMENT, HE SAYS HIS AMPHIBIAN CATCH SAYS SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT THE RIVER. THEY DO NOT TOLERATE POLLUTION AT ALL, AND THE FACT THAT THERE IS ONE LIVING THERE NOW SHOWS THAT THE RIVER IS BECOMING VERY CLEAN, IT IS A THRIVING RIVER WITH A LOT OF LIFE AND FISH EVERYWHERE. I AM VERY HAPPY. IN SOME STATES, THE POPULATION IS ON THE DECLINE,
