    Either a 6 pound rainbow trout that I caught in Duke's Creek or a 36+ inch carp I caught out of Varner Lake. Took both on a fly rod.

    I caught a few Northern Pike one year. One was pretty good size. We ate them.

    Those are nasty bast**ds to deal with and hard to kill.
    8 ft is large for that species.

    It was not a happy fish... 8 feet long is the average size for females and they commonly exceed 10 feet in length.

    Yeah, I caught one about that size and it was incredibly hard to kill. And the steaks were tough. Waste of a magnificent animal. I'll never do that again.

    I'm one of these guys that thinks catching bluegills with really light equipment is the most fun kind of fishing.

    I agree with you there.
    A bream bed, a 4wt fly rod, and a #8 chartreuse popper make for a hell of a fun day.

    I don't have a coolest, but I remember catching a rock cod off Thetis Island, British Columbia. Grilled and had it for dinner within about an hour of catching it -- still one of the best things I've ever eaten.

    Sea robin, they bark. Only cool the first time you catch one.
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.

    Well, I speared a carp once when I was a kid. That was neat. Not for the fish itself, but for trolling the river at midnight with a spotlight and a spear. Other than that, probably a northern pike that was pretty large to me at the time (I think an inch or two over 3 feet). I remember on that trip losing my dad's brand new lure on our first morning out in the boat to a big one (before we put wire leaders on all our lines to keep them from biting through any more) and then checking the stomachs of all the fish we caught in that little lake for the rest of the trip hoping to find one that'd swallowed it. No soup for us.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Fishing for flounder, hooked a skate. Dang. Bent my rod and was way prehistoric. Clubbed that sucker like a baby seal, gave it to the lobster shack down the way for chum.

    Arctic Grayling in interior Alaska. Very remote location, just me, my dog, a moose, and a couple snowshoe hares enjoying the scenery.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
