"Don't know what I'd do without CC. You keep me in the loop on the real events in our world." Beth - Dallas, TX
I used to work for a mechanical services company in the South Bay area ofLong Angeles County. One of my coworkers began telling me a story abouta fishing trip he took with his son in Baja California. The guy renteda 14' motorized skiff and a local skipper. His 12-year-old deaf son hookeda fish that was way too big for him to handle so Paul took over. Whenthe fish lept out of the water, it was a 400+ pound Marlin as long asthe boat they were on. The fish turned and headed straight for the boat.He lept out of the water three times. On the third leap, it landed in theboat and speared the ice chest.The skipper and kid bailed but Paul stayed on the boat because he thoughthis kid was still onboard under this monster fish. Once he realized his sonwas OK, he bailed out and they all waited for this fish to die. About thistime, I decided this was the most outrageous "fish story" I heard in mylife. I balled up my fist and began making an obscene gesture. Paulsmiled, reached for his wallet and unfolded an article from the WesternOutdoor News (with photographs.) I told him that I hope bought manycopies, because he had the uber bar bet winner and would never have topay for a drink for the rest of his life!
