    Those sunfish are the craziest looking fish! It seems like they would be slow, I wonder how they get away from sharks.

    Wow. That's some crazy trash. Makes you wonder what kind of stuff is lurking way down there at the bottom

    *fade in Call of the Cutulu....*

    So what's the deal with checking out New Zealand's news? You going to bust out with some Austrailian politics talk in the Lobby just to impress Mark?

    I actually pilfered it from my fav gaming site... Some of the gang are quite impressive individuals... smart, educated, others are.... merely game heads w/ no life. It's easy to spot which is which.

    Believe it or not, Fetch, that ain't one of the biggest.

    These jokers go out into lakes in places like Oklahoma lakes, reach their hands into holes in the banks and come up with suckers like this -

    the Monterrey aquarium had a pretty sizable Sunfish in with their tuna last time we were there. They definitely are a weird looking creature, especially in the water.


    I've seen some really big Ray's, eagle and manta, diving in Key West, those are some of my favorite aquatic denizens.

    Have ya'll ever seen a jewfish? Those suckers get massive and they have these enormous mouths that look like the could swallow you right up. They had some at the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi.

    I remember a picture my parents had from when I was a little fellow- standing beside one bigging stinking grouper. Those things get HUGE! looking for pics now...

    this isn't our pic, but seems like that's about the size of the Jewfish I remember
