13-Year-Old Reels in Monster Catfish Fishing on SC Lake–and the Photos Go Viral

A lake in South Carolina gave up an impressive catch late summer when a monster catfish was reeled in by a local teenager. Landon Anthony, 13, of Clover, South Carolina, was fishing with his grandparents at Lake Wylie when he managed to land the 36-pound (approx. 16-kilogram) catfish back in August. However, he didn’t keep the monster catch. Instead, Landon hurled the fish back into the lake, knowing a fish that size doesn’t taste as good as a smaller one, his mom, Jennifer Hullett, said, as The Charlotte Observer reported. “I’m pretty sure they just eat mud and dirt at the bottom,” she said.

Allison Love, of Clover and Lake Wylie at York County Council, saw a photo of Landon and his fish on a local Facebook page. She reposted the photo on her Facebook page, captioned: “Swimming with the … catfish. Wow! 13-year-old Landon Anthony reeled this in from the depths of Lake Wylie. 36 lbs. I will think about this every time I get in my inner tube from now on. Impressive Landon!” Landon’s catch helped Love’s post attract some great attention, too. It was shared over 1,000 times and garnered more than 200 comments. “It’s been the most popular post on my page in 3½ years,” Love told the Observer. (Courtesy of Jennifer Hullett) As a young boy, Landon was taught to fish by his father, Johnny Anthony. They also enjoyed hunting together. Johnny sadly passed away in 2016 following a car accident, but his grandparents have been taking him fishing ever since. It’s become a family tradition, and they said this catfish was the biggest thing the teenager has ever caught, WSOCTV reported. Landon says that one day, he dreams of being a professional fisherman.

People Are Finding Love on the Video Game ‘Among Us’

While we are prohibited from going to school, work, and other social venues, many are yearning for a platform to meet new people. The dating scene has been dead for months as it is difficult to find your soulmate while stuck at home. But some are discovering a new and unique way to virtually find love by turning the video game ‘Among Us’ into a dating game. What is Among Us? The video game ‘Among Us’ is where 4-10 players aboard a ship and must complete a variety of tasks. However, 1-3 players are assigned the role of the “Imposter” whose goal is to kill all the other players (crewmates) without getting caught. @amongus.leah #fyp #amongus #redvented #foryou ♬ original sound – Leah When a crewmate thinks they know who the “Imposter” is, they can call an “Emergency Meeting” where they discuss with the other players on who they think the Imposter is. Every time there is a meeting all players vote on who they think is the Imposter, and the player with the most votes gets ejected from the ship. If all the Imposters are ejected, the crewmates win, but if the Imposter(s) are able to kill the majority of the crewmates, then the Imposter(s) wins. Though the main goal of the game is to either kill or not be killed, many are playing the game with unconventional goals. Among Us Love Stories In ‘Among Us’ people play against real people, leading to the possibilities of making new friends and finding love. One TikTok user went viral after posting a video where she and another ‘Among Us’ player became allies on the game when they changed their screen names to Sharkboy and Lava Girl.
