Catching The Big One

This is Day 19 of the 2018 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Pounder.

This is the next to the last day of the challenge and I just didn't know quite what to do with today's prompt, so I went with the obvious usage of the word. 

When we catch the granddaddy of all fish, it is usually just a fish tale, but now and again someone legitimately catches a big one. 

Robert Strickland was certainly not floundering around last fall when he pulled a 38-pounder out of Salem Lake during the the city's annual Pier Catfish Tournament.

You can check out the article to see the actual fish caught by the tournament winner, and hear Strickland talk about catching the big ones. He has fished all around the area, but keeps coming back to Salem Lake.


If you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. I don't know anything about fishing but it must be a joy to catch anything at all, I don't think I have the patience to wait.

    have a lovely day.

    1. I do like to fish and sometimes you feed a lot of fish before you catch one.

  2. Hi Linda - I have to say I didn't know if that was an owl or a fish ... I hadn't taken in the title! It's an odd owl - but could be a fish-owl! i.e. a meld of the two - perhaps knitted together ... yet there really is a fish-owl. Anyway you've amused me and bemused me by this post - cheers Hilary

    1. Fish owls do indeed fish for their dinner, not unlike some humans.

  3. Interesting - everybody seems to consider something different to be the obvious choice for "pounder"!

    1. Hi Tamara, still trying to get around to everyone's posts. It seemed obvious to me so I'll have to see what everyone else thought about pounder.
