I've run across his brother a time or two. Seeing the excitement in their smile is priceless

This one kid I knew in high school said he caught a twelve pounder, I told him to show me how long it was with his hands. I'm pretty sure he meant 12 incher.

"Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see" I think that applies to fish weights even more than it does to life.

I had a young boy tell me one day that he caught an 80 pound carp out of the local canal.  He was so serious all I could do was congratulate him!

Ha-ha!  It's unusual to find a Beatles fan so young.  I call that good parenting!! ;)

I fish a creek that has bank access.............it never fails,  every year there is a parade of fools who have to tell me about all the 7,8+9 lb bass they have caught.

I just smile and wave.

Now, with Photoshop so readily available, I'm more inclined to believe what I hear...lol.

"Yeah whatever kid"

*follows kid home and stalks him for two weeks to find said honey hole*

 

 

I once told a pair of idiots that I pulled a "6-7 pounder" out of a huge but crazy shallow pond as I was leaving and they asked...  They were loud and obnoxious so it was in the hopes they'd never leave the place, convinced monsters are there somewhere lol.

I have given many people my catch, especially freshwater fish since I don't eat them anymore(rather eat saltwater fish).People have even asked me for bowfin and gar in the everglades,which I gave them,so this proves to me some people would eat almost anything given the opportunity.

I hear this all the time.  The best is when they sprint down the shore to see your 3 pounder you boated yelling "I told you there was 10 pounders in this lake".

There's a guy that occasionally fishes my home lake.I don't think he lives on it.Whenever I see him he's just caught another" huge " bass but he never produces the fish.He starts telling me all of the baits he caught them on.I mean every time.And its like he's never seen me out there before.He has No memory of our last conversation.He is condescending, as if HeS the lake pro or something.I just smile and ask him questions.His answers lead me to believe he's never caught anything over 3 pounds.(He doesn't know I've fished the lake for 42 years now)One day he asked me if I'd seen all the "jellyfish"in the lake.I just smiled and shook my head.

As long as that young man stays interested in bass fishing then it makes no difference what the fish weighs.

And speaking of catching those big ones, I love it when the TV guys pull in a 2 pounder and right away it is at least 5 pounds. Bill Dance for one is one of the biggest culprits followed closely by Jimmy Houston and Roland Martin.
