1. Cool the girls team won.
2. Cool there is a high school fishing championship in Louisiana.
3. Cool that they're the first-all girls team to win a TBF (Bass Federation) event in the nation.

I remember when I was the president of our El Capitan High School Fishing Club, one that I had gotten started. I wonder how many schools today have fishing clubs/teams?

Jealous of people that lived in a place where there was water :) Not much variety for fishing in the desert (especially if you are a teenager and do not drive yet!).

A nice-sized but frozen kelp bass that I caught on a fishing trip one day with my H.S. Fishing Club advisor, Mr. Noble. We were fishing in a small skiff in the La Jolla kelp beds and we weighed it and recorded a weight of 9 lbs. 2 oz. but it doesn't look that big. Maybe the weight was wrong but if so it was an honest mistake. Amazing how much younger I look.
