Hey,

This really has nothing to do with bee keeping but knowing how some of us really like fishing, thought I'd post it anyway.

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/03/new_state_record_for_striped_b.html

That is one BIG fish. Smiley

Enjoy.

David.

PS. Hope this doesn't break the rules. If it does sorry.

These are fun too.



Wish I had a pic that my cousin took of a lemon fish that I had caught a few years back.
It was nice. Texted my cousin to see if he still has the file. Hope he does. If so I will add it in.

It's a medium sized gag grouper. Nice but no sea monster.
My cousin found a better grouper pic.
And we're going to get this thread moved due to off topic. ( sorry moderator)
This pic is of a large Warsaw grouper.
I'm still waiting on him to find the cobra pic.

Stripers are running up the coosa river in Rome.   You can catch them off the mayo lock and dam.  Big fish can be found in lots of places.

No noodling.  He just got tired of how scraped up and dirty they get when he pulls them up on shore and he doesn't want to risk them getting an infection from it, so he climbed down into the water for some of the pictures instead.
