And here is the rest of the story: I claim the catRAT as a grandson. He was fishing in his yak when he tagged the above cat. He laid the cat out on his bump board across the bow of his yak. The fish flopped and the bump board dropped into the water. The RAT made a grab for the bump board and tipped over in his yak... wallet soaked (no money), .357 magnum soaked, phone/camera ruined, bump board retrieved. LaughLaugh

Entertainment for the whole family at Sunday get-together.

Better join me in the boat next time.Wink

BLK aka Grandpa

Frown I knew I should have held out giving you that particular story! Tongue Oh well.

I couldn't help but hear that first line in Paul Harvey's voice, and that had me chuckling anyway.

As for joining ya in the boat, I know what can happen to the passengers when they start outfishing the captain of your vessel.
I think my chances of "falling out" of your boat might be about equal to my Kayak if I have a big fish on. Wink

But seriously first chance I get, I will join ya!

Had a good morning out on the water with the posse, the Sheriff, and my good buddy Paddlingkittys.
7-14
27”
Caught on white bass
28.5”
Caught on Carp
Both caught at Utah Lake.
The 27 we were getting glare from my ruler, so we slid an easier to read ruler on top of it to make it easier to read.
The 28.5 is blurry.
If they are too much of a question, I won’t be bothered if they can’t be counted. It just means that I will have to go out and catch some more. Not that I won’t be doing that anyway. Smile

I can see the 28.5 and the 27 points... nice job... that blue one don't work so well, use the other one, or see if you can get the marks to stand out better... nice trip... J

Nice job, looks like 28 for sure and maybe longer with the kink, but I guess 28 is all I can give you... nice fish... J
