The old fish stories my grandpa used to tell were fun and no one believed them much.  After all fish can only grow so big right.  Well I have to rethink some of those tales after watching the monster fish caught on TV.  Could the got away stories have been true?  I wish that I had seen what my grandpa had told about.  The great fish that nearly pulled him into the water or the monster fish that nearly tipped over the boat. I have to rethink the possibility that these fish can exist in… Read Article →

There is a giant fish in the lake near my home.  I kayak there often and this monster fish taunts me.  I am not a fisherman so the fish is not something I dream about catching. The water in the lake is warm year round and the giant fish is some kind of carp I suspect.  It seems to wait for me to pass then jump out of the water right by my kayak.  One of these days it will probably jump right into my boat.  I know that the fish is going to flop right… Read Article →

If you believe some fishermen fish are intelligent.  They seem to have the ability to escape their most effective lures and hooks.  They can steal bait from the best fishermen.  Try as we may that big one eludes us.  The one that got away is still taunting us.  The fish have brains and smarts beyond some of the best of us.  I think that these tales of giant intelligent fish are exaggerated excuses for failure.  The fishermen need to perpetuate this story line to continue seeking the great intelligent fish.  Luke Weil can fish like… Read Article →

I in general like fish but more in a sandwich.  The whole fish in an aquarium thing eludes me.  What is the attraction.  If I want to see a fish swimming I will jump in my kayak and check out the lake.  Having them captive in a smelly bowl doesn’t interest me.  So what exactly is it that makes people do it?  I guess that some people just like to look at them swimming.  If they are not diligent the fish will be bottom up and dead.  That is my memory of the gold fish… Read Article →

We always remember things better that they really were but the big fish that got away is a classic.  As there is never any proof the fish of lore can be described as large as your imagination can make it.  Why not make that fish bigger than it was, no one can prove it one way or the other.  No one will believe you either way so go ahead and exaggerate, everyone else does.  The true store gets lost in the telling anyway.  Just take it for what it is worth and let that wopper… Read Article →

If you decide to have a fish bowl please don’t take it too seriously.  The whole project is doomed to fail from the start,  Fish belong in the local lake, not you end table.  The sad little buggers will swim in circles for your entertainment but are they happy?  I think not. I don’t think that you would be very happy in a round bowel.  The fish will end up going to an ugly end by way of the toilet.  I know that you mean well and promise to be a good fish owner but as… Read Article →
