* That morning I got up really early...

* Less than an hour after I had gotten up my Dad and I were at the Marina, putting our boat in the water.

* Past that, something amazingly awesome happened.

* We had been on board for an hour now, and only had a single encounter with a bat-ray so far.* We decided to put on some music.* Slowly, I skipped through my C.D. collection until I had found what I was looking for- "Breakfast in America" by Supertramp.* In what seemed like was only 1 minute, and as soon as "The Logical Song" had started, Dad noticed a little twitch on my pole.

* He jumped forward and set it, noticing the sudden burst of action on my pole I jumped forward and grabbed it.* Instantly I had started to reel in as quickly as possible, but then I had to give the T'auk'cka some line because otherwise my pole would have snapped.* After approximately 5 minutes of battling something really large, Dad and I got our first glimpse of our opponent.*

* Out of the water and in front of the sunlight jumped this giant Sturgeon, at least 5 feet long and as thick as a small tree's trunk.* In unison, Dad and I looked over to each other and yelled "HOLY Shtlk" with surprise and excitement.*

* After 10 more minutes of a gruesome, tiring and fatigued battle we managed to get the T'auk'cka into our boat.*

* I have told numerous people about this adventure, yet haven't been able to show a picture as of yet.* Well, this one is going to be amazing for you all.




Please, ignore the hillbilly look I have to me (on the left, is me).* I hadn't shaved or taken a shower for two days (that was for later in the day!)

Anyways, this beauty landed me and my dad wuth the 2nd biggest fish, and won me third place in the raffle.* We made $756 off of my first sturgeon, in my first hour of fishing for them!

Wow, nice catch! Could you tell us how tall you are, for scale?

At first I thought you were deep sea fishing (which is awesome), but man, in only 15 minutes? It took me almost twice as long to reel in my sailfish.

Very, very nice catch. What state do you live in? My dad's always looking for places to fish.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

I am...about 5'10" I believe. Last time they measured me (in 7th grade :P) I was 5' 8", so I think I have grown just a teency bit, also, keep in mind I was bent down a little, that guy was heavy...like, Dad and I had trouble keeping him up like that.

We were out in the bay, where it isn't particularly deep :P And I live in California, so I was fishing out in the San Francisco bay, next to the Oakland Airport.

And Tef (yes, your new nickname is Tef). I made $353 off of him, you said something about affording?

Read the post, Minako!

Great catch, Lonely! Hell, the biggest fish I've ever caught was a one footer! What do you think you're gonna buy with the money you got for it?

Dang, beats the hell out of anything I've ever caught and I go fishing a fair bit during the summer. Must've been like fighting a freight train getting that behemoth in

* Actually, oddly enough...it fought a lot less hard than the some-odd 4-5 Bat Rays we found!* But hey, any fish I catch listening to Supertramp is an awesome fish!* In fact, some cash will go soley to some more Supertramp Albums!* Those bat rays fought hard though...


* As for what the money goes to...C.D.s, some random models, some books, Russian Lessons, and (saving up for this stuff) some Electric Fencing Equipment.* Otherwise it is all just some random things that I may have the desire to get...like laid a new pole...(yes, Fishing Pole).

And Minako: The bastard wieghed in at a whopping 150 pounds...scary really...
