The reason it wasn't a record is that she didn't pull it in herself? Not much of a fisherman if you don't haul in your own catch, IMO.

So.... you can land a 1000 pounder by yourself?

I must admit that I have come close to landing a 1,000 pounder at closing time a few times.

I never said I was a fisherman - I said she wasn't much of one. The record is something like 900+ lbs.- and yes, someone hand to land it "by themselves."

LOL my largest is 2 inches.

I wonder what they do with big catches like that, eat them?
I haven't a clue.

I've never been much into game hunting. An animal battles life to become the best, pass their genes on to produce the best of a breed. Then man comes along and goes for the creme of the crop just to stuff it or have bragging rights. Not my cup of tea.

I beg to differ, Bex.

Shithouse door on a tuna boat and if you don't do the landscaping regularly - about 10,000 little suckers.
