A Whale of a Tale (fish tail, that is)



According to the email this arrived in, this spotted guy (I think it is a carp) is 55 pounds and 56" long. I wonder how long it took to land him?

I haven't been fishing since I was about 6 years old. My aunt took me to Lake Pymatuning in Ohio, and I promptly caught six or seven fish with no problem. Beginner's luck, I'd say!

Work has kep me busy nearly all week and I'm not finished yet. After delivery tomorrow, I may find time to download a few photos from today's work. Y'all take care until I return, ya heah?

That is a major fish. Goodness me.

Michele sent me to say "Hi."

Good lord, that's not a fish, it's a suitcase!

Wasn't sure if you'd get skipped (like I did!) so I popped over from Michele's.

I posted a ton of NYC photos.
You have to see MacKenzie-Childs. I think you would like them.

Why am I not surprised you knew who they were. ;) Our first home had tons of stripes and checks and M-C influence.

Hi, there. Great pic! I thought I'd drop by and say hello after trying to play Michele's game twice. :) (BTW, you don't need an invitation to read my blog, I'm at http://scarlet1216.blogspot.com)

that's a weird looking fish--or a funny angle. Trout season is just a few weeks off, but right now the streams are so full of water it wouldn't be safe to get in 'em.

I've seen a lot of carp on the end of a fish line, but never saw one spotted or that big.

Lake Pymatuning was the site often mentioned by my Mom when telling me of her youth -- a very popular place in her day.

The biggest I caught was a perch - about 6" long - give or take a couple of inches. We ate it.
