    Fisherman Hauls In Record Virginia Rockfish

    POSTED: 9:16 am EST January 24, 2008
    UPDATED: 9:53 am EST January 24, 2008

    CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- A Chesapeake man has shattered Virginia's rockfish record with a 73-pound striped bass.

    Fred Barnes hauled in the monster Wednesday off Cape Henry. The previous record was a 68-pound, 1-ounce fish caught in 2006 by Clay Armstrong.

    The fish fell short of the International Game Fish Association all-tackle world record -- a 78 pound, 8-ounce striper caught off a New Jersey beach in 1982 by Albert McReynolds.

    Barnes said he had no plans to mount the fish, which measured 52 inches long, with a girth of 31 inches.

      If he's not planning to have it mounted, how's about frying it up with a side of hush puppies? YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmm!

            Sometimes, you got to do what you got to do, even if it hurts. Good Luck, and keep your rod above the waves, your bait in the water, and your beer in your belly..

              Got curious and looked up that John Dory...it's a weird looking fish. How do you prefer to cook it and what's it taste like?

                  Everytime I do something that I have to do, I just do it. And when I don't have time to do what I have to do, I just don't do it. What would you do?

                    I am not sure what I would do, especially if I didn't know what I was doing. But, if I knew what to do and how to do it, at least then I might be able to decide whether or not to do it. I think I will go hunting......yes.....sounds like something to do,

                        I thought that is what the bed was for...

                        Lord, I apologize for that last statement.

                        If you have something to do, but you didn't do it, then you can't be called a quitter for something you never began, but you could be called a slacker for not pulling your weight, unless you did something better than the first thing you didn't do. Why would you not do what you didn't do, if you could do so much better? I guess it depends on how you get what you got done after you did all you didn't.

                        Or you could just take (c.) and call it done.

                        • Just got off the phone with my daughters who are driving from NY to Ohio.

                          Right now they are in Jersey.

                          I'm in front of the computer giving them information on what ro expect for weather ahead of them.

                          In the background on the phone is the daughters' GPS telling her to stay left and follow I-80.

                          I'm wondering if the kids are too dependent upon this wild technology and how they would fare without it.

                          Also, I feel sorry for Rand-McNally.

                          • There is Rand-McNally software that helps keep people current and up to date in their electronic mapping on GPS receivers. I suspect they don't mind..I think they call it "enviromentally freindly" because by not printing paper maps, they are "saving trees."


                            I personally LOVE my paper maps. There is something great about finding places on your own. It's like having your own treasure map to the world around you.

                              I like just taking off and driving sometimes...no maps, no plans...just to see where the day takes me (it's usually a lake or the mountains ).
