They say fishermen love to exaggerate. So, here's your chance. Saltwater, or fresh. boat, or from shore, caught, or bought.
Here is one of mine.1995, I was on Redington Beach. Fl. by the pier, I was surf-casting getting 0 bites and finally hit a snag. Being bored I decided to use the opportunity to pretend I was dealing with a huge creature as there were some really pretty people walking the shore-line. I kept my pole bent in half and started moving around reeling my reel. I did this for about 30 minutes and the crowd had swelled considerably, all standing watching and waiting for me to bring the monster in.
Finally I cut the line and there was a huge sigh of disapointment from the gathered crowd. When I turned around I could see it in their faces. So I said loud enough for them to hear with a grin on my face,"hey, it was hungrier than I am." The fish that never was, had gotten away...
Anyway do you have a story or two to tell? Could be a tale about catching or cooking ,either way, I would love to hear it.
