Even though this is bait, I'd be happy to catch something this big in fresh water!
Six-Foot Predatory Minnow
Many children and even adult naturalists enjoy dipping for minnows in a streamside pool. Minnows are the epitome of the “tiddler” or small two-inch fish. But the largest North American minnow is a toothy predator, an endangered species, and quite enormous. The aptly named Colorado pike minnow is an aggressive fish-eater that has been recorded at a whopping 1.8 meters (6 ft) in length. Compared to the other minnow species, this gigantic fish with large jaws is a true big fish in a small pond. It can even weigh up to 35 kilograms (80 lbs). Pike minnows are an endangered species, facing serious threats from habitat damage and changes in water flow. As a result, a recovery program is now in place.
I have a feeling that Billy Bob could use a couple of these to use! If he couldn't catch anything, he could throw them on his grill for us all!
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Fresh biscuits and honey sounds good!
