The one that didn't get away!

Fishing with the guys

Yes, that's right 45 pounds
This guy is a little hard to hang onto
James' smallest catch of the day

Every good fisherman has a BIG fish tale. You know the tale about the one that got away but you never see the fish. Well this time they have the tale and the pictures to prove it. I have to say that if I had not seen the pictures I would never had believed the stories. Although there is further proof in the deep freeze. What in the world am I going to do with that much fish? We don't even eat fish...unless you count Long John Silvers or one of the local cat fish places. Even then it's not our first choice for dinner. At least I don't have to clean it. That was included in the trip.

The trip actually took longer than they planned. Evidently you have to fill out paper work when the fish you catch is a lake record. Maybe even a state record. The last fish catch of the day weighed in at 76 pounds and was caught by the guy that invited them on the all expenses paid fishing trip of a life time. Thanks Brett. they had a great time.

The guys had a great time-a little sore. I guess it is a lot of work to real in 45+ pounds of flailing fish. Somehow I think that the photos and stories are all worth a little soreness.

Wow! I am impressed. The good news is that fish is good for the brain and a healthy choice of food. :)
