Friend of mine would have the Alabama record for one of the hybrid fish. (Two that crossed and I know it wasn't the Smallmouth/Spot cross) Seems it was sauger and something else.

They took pics and carried it to be verified by a state biologist.

He then MISIDENTIFIED the fish. Pics were shown to my friend who is a fisheries biologist and emailed to several more and all agreed, EXCEPT the one who would have verified the thing.

I caught what would have to have been the state record pumpkinseed about 4 years ago. The state record is a mere 5 ounces, I would say this fish would have gone at least 12ounces. If only I knew then what I know now.

I've had several that would be line class records for carp on the fly rod, but I suspect dozens of folks have caught and never recorded carp. I mean, who is a big enough loser to want to be known as the dude with the carp records? Besides me, of course! \:D

In the same vein, several friends and I have caught some skipjack that might have made the state record, but who goes to the trouble to find certified scales for a skippy?
