'Braggin' Rights

Doug wins "braggin rights" on the 'Nawth Rivah'! He has been fishing off our dock for 5 years and has caught, and thrown back, a lot of fish and nasty eels but last Sunday the tides were right and he reeled in two 'keepahs'! This 'strippah' was 46 inches and 27 pounds. My sister, Sandi, thinks it is because we are too close to the Cape Nuclear Power Plant....first a mammoth seal washes up on the marsh (if you don't follow facebook you missed my pictures and rant about the seal) and then this huge fish??? Look at the shock and envy on the faces of the two fishermen on the opposite bank of the 'rivah'!

Doug and Christy treated the whole family to a cookout. It was the most delicious grilled fish I have ever tasted, even if it was radioactive!

That thing is HUGE!
I don't think they caught anything like that on the deep sea fishing trip... in spite of 'chumming' the water by Brooke and Brad.

Good thing someone got a photo of that--otherwise, no one would believe it!
