Bigger fish to fry

Today I went fishing for the first time in years, with a few friends. The first one I caught, was the smallest I've ever caught.

To make matters worse, it's wearing pinstripes.

Terry did a bit better.

17 Lbs 4 Ozs



Any pics of your smallest fish?

My dad taught me to make sure the camera only comes out after you measure the fish. That you either get a picture of a really big fish or you can lie about how it got away while you were getting out the camera

You should've punched it and then thrown it back.

Yup.

Don't forget that photos will add 5 Lbs.

(edit; I should have said "smallest striper".)

Now here is a little one:



Caught on Cedar Creek lake in the summer of 2000 by a friend of mine from England. May well have been the first and only bass she ever caught.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I don't have a pic, but I caught a tuna FINGERLING once. I was fishing offshore in the Gulf of Mexico with my Uncle and apparently snag hooked a tuna fingerling while we were trolling. It must have weighed all of three OZ!

Talk about bad luck for the Tuna!
