Holy crap, qwark...you're a better person than I! I think I might have been tempted to have that bad boy stuffed. I hope you got a picture or two at least!
I was a little girl when I caught a 16 in rainbow trout (with a homemade rod, I might add)...it's my best catch to date. With the exception of a great big carp who had scales the size of silver dollars...but it was a carp...I let him go.
Yep ohma...they love corn. I also use white bread mixed with corn flakes and just enuf water to knead and make a big doughball. Small chunks on the hook'll get the carp too.. I hope yer havin' fun!...:-)
Have not been able to go since my husbands disabilities have really become serious. it has been about 6 years since we have done any fishing. I do miss it, but I am afraid he just cannot manage it anymore and I would not go without him.
I caught a Silver King Tarpon?? I think thats what they said it was?? I think it weighed like 60lbs?? I was only 14 and it was in the Gulf of Mexico just off of Padre Island Texas..It was bigger than anything my dad caught that day!
Storm: You caught a prehistoric animal. The Tarpon ia a fighter! Not good to eat....but fun to catch. That must have been a thrill for you and your Dad. I've seen many of them during my diving years in the Keys in fla. Some of them well over 100 lbs! Good for you!
