Go ahead and share your story of today’s big catch, here. Even if you didn’t go fishing today or the new fishing rules limited your catch, feel free to tell us a past fish tale your father told you!
Your story doesn’t have to be quite as dramatic as six-year-old Tegan Humphrey’s. Last Sunday, she did her father proud by landing a very large halibut on board Capt. Rob Hyslip’s charter boat in Alaska. The Anchorage Daily News says that, not unlike a lot of you who went to Coney Island yesterday, she was fishing for a mermaid.
Of course, she had some help from dad and the captain’s sawed-off shotgun. The Slanch Report tells us that while she was more than willing to reel the fish in, she did not want it shot. We knew the story of a little girl reeling it all in by herself sounded a little fishy!
But, keep your comments sans-guns — because, Sheepshead Bay has seen more than its share of fishes and guns!
