Do we have any fishermen on FanBox?  In case you missed it on line, the state striped bass record has been broke in Alabama and could possibly be a world record but that will take a while to find out.

James Bramlett went fishing at the request of his wife because she was going to be keeping him busy for a few days.  He went to the Black Warrior River on February 28,2013 and came home with this 70 pound fish. The previous state record was 15 pounds lighter. You can do the math.  What is the largest fish you have caught?

As for myself, I was deep sea fishing off the coast of the Big Island, Hawaii and caught a 130 pound yellow fin tuna.  That little fish took over an hour to get in the boat and that was with someone helping me. That was my first and last deep sea fishing expedition.  I’d go back in a flash but so far it hasn’t happened. I’ll be content catching my bass and catfish out of my pond and think about the big one I caught.Bass Record catch bass oklahoma record bass world record bass4 Bass5

About shirleymclain930

I'm a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I liked adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. My Granddaughter has now added beautiful, Olivia to our household. My fourth Great Grandchild. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.
