Fish Stories. But with Proof


A nice little fish story, for those who want to stir up trouble down at the local fisherman's hang. And who shouldn't stir up a little trouble from time to time? (Perfect for Father's Day and Birthdays, not to mention a Stuffing in the Stocking at Christmas)

Record African Pompano hangs on hoist in San Juan, Puerto Rico 

It's a Boy!

New record for African Pompano---52 Lbs., 8 Oz

Yourtown---- (NOTICE: Any names of towns, locations, people, institutions, etc., used in these sample fake newspaper stories, are purely fictional, chosen at random, and are not meant to portray or represent any real person, place or deed. Remember that no matter what name a writer chooses to use in any fictional story, there is a real person (or many persons) SOMEWHERE who have that exact name.)

No one seems to know if it's a boy or not, nor does anyone care.

All that matters is that it's BIG.

How big?

Big enough to usurp the world record from Tom Sargent, whose 50 lb., 8 oz. beauty had held it since Apr. 21, 1990.

Casey Jones was charter fishing out of San Juan when he hooked the monster.

Casey said he was actually fishing for Barracuda, but will take the win anyhow.

He hasn't yet decided if he'll have the fish mounted.

"It would be a crime not to (have it mounted)," commented charter skipper Martin Fredrico. His company has offered to have the mounting done for free (in exchange for honorable mention in the record books).

Mr. Jones said catching the fish was the most fun he'd had in years.

"I'll definitely be back!" said Casey.
