Legends of Fishing!


Now I know you have all heard the stories of fisherman catching The ONE BIG FISH...  or the Story where a couple of friends went out and caught 100 Fish in 2 hours...  Well Today I want to let you know these Legends Are Real... people always ask who are these Legendary Men or Women who catch these fish? Well low and behold there are people you know! They just don't tell the story because they often don't have proof that it has ever happened. Well back in my early years when I was a young boy around the age of 13 I used to love going biking up the canyon with my best friend Kevin Martin and go fishing... Well there is a place called Vivian Pond some of you may be familiar with that area. Also you may know that it is a very small pond and you may only think like 6 inch to 8 inch long trout could ever come out of there. Well this is the Story that we love to share...  One morning we went biking and like usual we went fishing at Vivian Pond, there had always been a big fish in that pond but nobody really knew of him but we had seen him. He was a monster of a fish! We named him Goliath! Now you say how big is a monster of a Fish!??? 10 inchs...? 1 lb?  Well Goliath was A LARGE and SMART FISH! around 7 to 8 lbs. about a foot and a half... if I remember Correctly... but then again that is where tall tales come from over exaggeration... BUT it took some smart fishing tactics that I am  not aloud to share... mainly because they are too gruesome to share. (Sorry) Well today I have some pictures of Goliath to share with you!  BUT DO NOT scroll down.  Just Wait! there is more to this story! This is one of my Legends I would like to share with you today...  Now it is not too common for people in life to have more than 1 or 2 Big Fishing Tall Tales... Well this last week Elder Perry and I went fishing with a member  for about 2 hours... Well lets just say we caught a lot of fish! How many is a lot you wonder...? 20...? maybe 30? at the most 50??? YEAH? well up untill a week ago I would have agreed with you.  But in 2 hours time of fishing we caught 95 Fish! We could have had 100 but we did toss a few back because of small size....  It truly was a great day to take a new convert out fishing and have such an Awsome Experience. Something I am sure we will hold onto forever in our memorys...  That day we were catching between the three of us about a fish every 1 minute and 50 seconds... which was almost just about every cast! Everyone else around us was not really catching anything but today was our day! Our new convert Stever had been needing a good day and he loves to fish! and God certainly did bless us with a good day of fishing! who would have thought it was because of God who actually allows Fishing Tall Tales to come TRUE...      

5:3  And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
5:4  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5:5  And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
5:6  And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
5:7  And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

Please Enjoy the Pictures!
