Ohio River fishermen net catfish with adult toy in stomach
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WXIN) – Two Indiana men who went in search of catfish up the Ohio River got their prized catch and an extra: a sex toy in the 20-pound fish’s stomach.
Richard Kesar says he took friend Jon Hoop out on his boat over the weekend. The two hoped to catch Hoop’s first blue catfish.
Kesar says the scandalous fish was actually the first catch of the day. After Hoop rolled it up and got it into the net, they realized something was, well, wrong.
“When we got it on the boat, we noticed that its stomach was huge,” Kesar said. He assumed they were eggs or maybe wild animals that the fish had eaten.
“It’s common to find other fish, sometimes turtles, muskrats and other animals,” he explained.
The two continued fishing and caught two more catfish before Kesar took a closer look at the day’s catch. He said when he pressed on his stomach he felt two hard objects which he knew weren’t balls.
When the two returned to Kesar’s home in Shelbyville, it was time to find out what was in the fish.
“We decided to cut it open and we found the foam ball, part of a fish and the other object,” Kesar said.
The “other object” was an adult sex toy that the fish somehow swallowed after the object entered the Ohio River.
“I have no idea how or why it ended up in the river,” Kesar admitted.
Kesar’s wife and 3-year-old daughter attended the big reveal as his daughter loves to help with the fishing.
“When it came out, Jon, my wife and I started laughing. My wife immediately covered my daughter’s eyes and turned her away from it.”
He says his daughter keeps asking what’s in the fish.
“It definitely doesn’t happen often.”
