Video: Flesh-Eating Catfish!
Forget about fishing on the other side of the world—U.S. soldiers Drew Altizer and Clint Lauver are fishing on a whole different planet for all practical purposes! Just imagine the scene: You're serving your country in Iraq, where during your free-time you sneak over to one of Saddam Hussein's private lakes and fish for a rare breed of poisonous catfish.

It gets even more bizarre—it's rumored that those who crossed Saddam end up as catfish bait! True or not, Altizer and Lauver put together an awesome video showing it first-hand. No wonder the duo won first place in North American Fishing Club's "So You Think You Can Fish" video contest.

Their fishing tale is truly one of a kind, and you can read it all right here. Now, you might be wondering: What do you use for bait for man-eating catfish?

Beef jerky and Slim Jims, of course.
