  • Is that something you learn in home ec?? Maybe MacGyver would use thread and fig newtons to catch fish. But if someone killed the thread, then what?

      • Atlanta? It rose from the ashes, home for the Falcons...


        I wonder if Falcons like to eat newtons...


        Phenix City, AL is a long way from Phoenix, AZ, are they related..

        Unfortunately, if it is 5:00 pm somewhere, then it also must be 7:00a.m. somewhere as well.

        If an actor has a problem remembering his lines in the middle of an intense production can he claim a disability for post dramatic stress disorder?

          Howard Co. Man Catches State's Largest Largemouth Bass

          POSTED: 1:59 pm EST February 1, 2008
          UPDATED: 2:11 pm EST February 1, 2008

          WOODBINE, Md. -- State environmental officials said a Howard County man caught a new state record largemouth bass.

          Justin Riley and his father, Ed, of Woodbine, were fishing last weekend in the Potomac River when Justin hooked the big fish. Riley said he fought the fish for 10 minutes before bringing it to the surface.

          The official measurements are 11 pounds, 3 ounces and a length of just over 24 inches. That breaks the 1975 record of 9 pounds and 1 ounce for a largemouth caught in the Pocomoke River on the Eastern Shore.

          Bass Pro Shops at Arundel Mills Mall in Hanover will place the fish on display.

              If the boys have to weep, does that mean the girls can laugh our a---s off?

                • No, they cannot, because that would be just plain mean.

                  Comment


                  • A jealous person might cry...(sniff), but I would like to offer, (sniff), a big thumbs up! The sooner we can rid the waters of fish like these, the better chances Harve will have at those 30 plus pound channels and blues. It's good to know that the fish will live a pampered life at the Bass Pro Shops. That beats the heck out of being scaled and fried.. Did anybody hear what bait he used?

                    Here is the story from the BassFan website:

                    Riley's possible Potomac record 1/28/2008


                    Maryland angler Justin Riley contacted BassFan this weekend with the news that he believes he caught a new Maryland-record largemouth from the Potomac River during a U.S. Angler's Choice event.

                    "On the 26th of January I caught a largemouth bass that weighed 11.18 pounds on certified scales in a tournament," he said. "This fish is 2 pounds larger than the current state-record tidal fish that has been standing for over 20 years, and also weighs 1 ounce more than the existing freshwater state record. I transported the fish to Bass Pro Shops alive and it's currently in the quarantine tank awaiting the final approval from the Dept. of Natural Resources."

                    > The existing Maryland freshwater largemouth record is 11-02, caught by Rodney Cockrell from a farm pond in 1983.

                    > The existing "tidal" (or Chesapeake Bay) record largemouth is 9-01, caught by J.D. Noell from the Pocomoke River in 1975.

                    • And.............

                      Good job by this Gentleman. By taking care to preserve the Fish for everyone to see, it may have lost a bit of weight, but it's certainly worth it. The reference to Tidal includes all tributaries to the Chesapeake between the Bay itself and the point on the Tributary where Tidal influence ends. The Bay is too salty, even in the best of times, so the Bass are in the Tributaries. On the Potomac, the Brackish part of the river is from the Chain Bridge in Washington DC to a point North of the US 301 Bridge in Newburg, Maryland, almost a 50 mile run. Best Bass fishing is from the Woodrow Wilson Bridge (I-95) southeast to Nanjemoy Creek in Charles County. Coincidentially, this is also Maryland's Top Catfishing area. Great place to fish.

                      • You want to fish for bass? Try the Australian Seabass. Commonly seen size? 11-13 lb - and known to go up to 6ft 7in and 130 lb... Uusally known here as Barramundi, thought by many to be the best fishing we have (apart from the swordies maybe?). As I can't really go after them with the .308 I'll leave them alone.

                        I'm willing to bet that I haven't killed this thread!

                            This is a serious discussion thread about nonsense, whimsy, dark suckers and such.
                            It's pointless, some are more prolific than others, but in the end, we learn some useless information that we can use to dazzle our friends.

                              Harve, do you ever fish at Great Falls? I used to do a lot of rock hopping there, as well as some fishing. Had a great time and still sometimes miss the place.
