That certain something? For Me, Fishing!
This past winter in New Jersey was the warmest in recorded history, so that being the case I spent a good bit of time doing a lot of crappie fishing. So, as the story goes; the other day I was standing next to a young guy who was catching one fish after another while I wasn't getting a one. After what seemed like hours that he humiliated me, my friend caught a good size crappie, which he held it up in the air and said: "Yeah! This one is the record!" His fish was about 8 inches long and was a good size for a crappie. A few seconds later, after being shut out all day, I hooked into the biggest crappie that I and the folks around the stream agreed they had ever seen. I turned to the young fisherman and proudly held up my catch and in a booming voice and said: No! This one is the record! Turned out my fish was over 12 inches long and 6 inches wide and almost a pound in weight, I know for some of you trophy fisherman out there that doesn't sound too big, but for the over fished, polluted streams of NJ, that is a big crappie and I'm proud to say I caught him!
