and if you have a fish you want to submit, email them to [B][U]firstname.lastname@example.org[/U][/B] with a photo and a length measurement. shawn seeger still waiting for an email to get your fish in the running. how long was it???
Don't expect I'll be in the lead for long - there are many more skillful fishers around here. It was just a thrill to bring in a personal best. That brown took my line out into the lake like it was going for a Sunday stroll. Great fun!
By the way, he was safely released, of course. With my handy measuring tape sewn into the seam of the net, I didn't have to touch him at all (I obtained his weight by weighing him in the net, then subtracting the weight of the wet net directly afterwards).
He was a respectable beast. I shall name him, "Herman".
