Catch a State Record Fish? Then What?

Avoiding social media in order to shield yourself from the TRUE AUTHENTIC thoughts of the people that surround you, is a guaranteed way to live stupidly. 

If you can't handle reality then you just might belong in a mental institution, because eventually you're gonna get some news that will break you bad.

I already have a pretty good understanding of the true authentic stupidity of most people. I choose to shield myself from most social and mass media so I’m not reminded of it every minute of every day. That’s the cool thing about free will, if want I can ignore the world outside of my bubble. 

I know it might sound like blasphemy to my fellow fisherman but one big fish is no big deal. Nobody did anything wrong and the world is no better or worse than it ever was.   

Fortunately; me catching a record fish is as likely as me winning the Lottery. If either did happen, I hope i’d have the strength to keep it to myself.

I don't avoid social media, just Facebook.

You want my TRUE AUTHENTIC thoughts? That post makes no freakin' sense at all! And, you're welcome for my contribution to you living less stupidly and keeping you out of the nut house for now. :D

I would have liked to seen the record beaten by a native fish, but hey, it's still a record and quite an accomplishment in it's own right. Kudos to all involved.

I'm still working on catching that 1 lb bluegill on a limbline to take the alternative record for that species :rolleyes:!

I don't necessarily want them, but hearing them wouldn't ruin my day.

It should make perfect sense.  Babler caught that fish several days ago, and people are STILL upset because a few guys (I assume they are guys) poo-pooed it.   

I mean did anyone really think that nobody out there was gonna have the thought that a big triploid brown caught within a few miles of a hatchery doesn't somewhat taint the meaning of "a record"?     If so then you probably belong in a nut house.  😂

You may have already caught it and a big ole flathead ate it.

Like many folks my "trophy" fish mostly have nothing to do with huge size.  Conditions, friends, location, weird happenings etc. mean more to me than a giant fish.  Of course I don't catch any giant fish so maybe I a full of "social media".

We spend thousands and thousands of dollars to catch nice trout in exotic locations and that’s okay. Some class warfare grumbling aside, no one blinks.

Someone catches a monster in our backyard, and apparently a crime has been committed. As if he(us) , and the fish, is somehow undeserving of our respect and good will.

Once again, I’d rather laugh with the sinners, than cry with the saints.

Haters gonna hate.  If you're sensitive to that sort of thing avoiding the facebook machine is probably wise.

Long as the catch was legal anybody who doesn't like it doesn't really have a say in the matter.

If I caught it the very next pictures after the weigh-in would be the ones of filets on the grille.
