    I don't know anyone who mounts them either but I'm told a lot of tournaments take the fish to display with date weight and the name of the fisherman. I think one of a funniest movies on fishing was Man's greatest sport with rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss. I've gotta show these to my nephew he's big into fishing and does three to five day boats out of San Diego and encinitas. Our neighbor across the street go to Encinitas came back one time with like five or six big ce chests with tuna's 45 pounders and bigger told me he was going to clean them and put them in the freezer I looked at the fish and the freezer and ssi do you think they'll all fit. He looks at the fish and the freezer and says no an hour later a ring st the door and he hands me a huge hunk of tuna. We made sashimi that night and the next. He went to all the neighbors he knew and gave them cuts of tuna. Teriyaki grill is good too.

    Great size fish there, CAC! Over here the biggest fish is the Salmon which swim in the Northern Finland rivers.

    Our most famous Lapland fisher is Jasper Pääkkönen, who was in the BlacKkKlansman movie by Spike Lee and as I understood in the "Da 5 bloods" also directed by Spike Lee.Jasper even got Spike Lee to travel to Lapland but I don´t know if he did any fishing.

    Yes, there is a place in my heart for classical music, too. I love the 'Four seasons ' and my definite favourite is the Mozart Night Queen aria. The first time I heard it I was blown away... ;)

    I beat a 7 foot shark to death on the stern of a Navy tugboat once. The morons were fishing as we went from Roosy Roads to St. Croix to tow target boats back for maintenance. When they hooked the shark it started jumping and this one idiot pulled really hard at the top of a jump, which nicely facilitated the shark's boarding. Everybody cleared the fantail so I went in with a wrecking bar, six feet long with 1.5" square pry at the end. One through the brain and the fight went out of him.

    Just some things about Churchill: Everyone thought he drank whisky and burnt cigar all day long. Actually, he had learnt during his stay in India to dilute whisky for the humid conditions. The cigar had been taped at the mouth part so he looked better in pics. He did not smoke the damn things all the time. Although he liked a cigar every now and then. Pretty clever thinking as these were his key deeds in newspaper photos. Maybe helped with the ' black dog ' (?) syndrome though.

    Lake Trout from Lake Superior on the left and a Northern Pike on the right.

    We have 'Pike' or "Northerns" as we call em', in our considerably smaller lake. The largest I personally saw was a 14 pounder. The one shown on the right would be in the 20# range.

    Hmmmm, I wonder if the big ones are as good pan fried in butter as the pan size or need more seasoning. My fall back everything tastes good in teriyaki sauce

    "I'll beat them up but I won't kill them."

    "Well, if you won't kill them we won't let you beat them up!"

    Laying on my back waiting for my family brother sister's and other relatives to get back and cart me off the hospital. I've been down with gout. Usually lasts a week to three, but been down for ten. My insurance card came in last week so off to see s doctor. Have to say I'm freaking a little, wondering if its something more, I hope they don't make me stay I really hate hospitals. Wish me luck and hopefully it is something minor like the lack of being off for so long and just need physical therapy. I just can't seem to stand. Really annoying trying to get my model stuff together. Well just hope it goes fast score a burger and a soda on the way home.

    Did you say gout? I guess you know already things you eat can start it so hopefully you have a list what not to eat or the process starts. All the best!
