Somebody has a sense of humor.... "What has rows and rows of sharp teeth.... sucks blood and rings up a 20 million dollar tab?" We could use more people like her telling it like it is with a dash of old fashioned fun tossed in.

I caught a sturgeon once....The only legal sized on I've ever laid into and it had a lamprey sucking upon it...DNR said they will easily take 40 #'s off of a fish. I believe it.... That sturgeon had no where near the play in it, it should have had.... A 35# catfish has more fight in him than he had!
