A mysterious hard object found inside the catfish turns out to be a sex toy. After one of them landed a blue catfish on the Ohio River last week, two Indiana anglers received a surprise gift.
The goal the day Richard Kesar of Shelbyville, Indiana, and his friend Jon Hoop went fishing on the Ohio River last week was for Hoop to catch his first blue catfish.
He did, but this fish also arrived with a hidden toy: a sex toy, to be exact.
“We realized his stomach was big when we put him in the boat,” Kesar told Fox station WXIN in Bloomington, Indiana. He first believed it was due to the eggs or other animals the fish had eaten.
“Other fish, turtles, muskrats and other species are commonly found,” he told the TV station.
He didn’t press the catfish’s abdomen until later that day and felt two firm objects he knew weren’t eggs.
They found what was causing the catfish’s abdomen to swell when they returned to Kesar and cut up the catfish: a foam ball, a piece of another fish, and yes, a pretty big dildo. “The other element”, as Kesar called it.
Kesar shared images of the catfish and “the other thing” on his Facebook page, which sparked a lot of curiosity, with more than 19,000 shares as of Friday afternoon. It also presented him with some difficulties as the father of a three-year-old girl.
“Jon, my wife and I started laughing when he came out,” he told WXIN. “My wife shielded my daughter’s eyes and turned her away from it right away.”
The girl keeps wondering what it is, but that’s probably a topic for another day. Hoop has the catfish, according to Kesar, but he doesn’t believe his fisherman friend has “eaten it yet.”
Meanwhile, he still has “the other object”, but not for long.

Catfish is the aquatic equivalent of waste disposal.
Take it from groundfish enthusiast Dave Schmidtlein. He recalls a fishing trip to Coffey County Lake a few years ago that convinced him catfish were eating even the most unusual bait.
Schmidtlein, who resides in Topeka, said: “We had found this hump that was just full of channel catfish.” “We were trying to eat both our meal and our fish.” My child had tossed one of my homemade dill pickles into the water after dropping it to the bottom of the boat.
Most shocking discovery
“We cleaned a few fish later to examine what they were eating, and I discovered a large bulge in one of the fish’s bellies.” When I opened it I thought it was a crawfish, but inside was a 412 inch long dill pickle.
“That pickle must have been devoured shortly after we put it in the sea.”
Pickles can be used as bait. Why not? River anglers use everything else.
Schmidtlein recalls his brother catching fish at Lake Clinton a few years ago and discovering six spare ribs in the intestines of one fish as he tried to clean them.
Schmidtlein’s niece was chewing grape gum when she decided to put it on her hook. She caught a channel catfish within minutes.
