My Biggest Mahi - 40 years ago

Found this old photo from way back when I was 15 years old.  Caught it June 1978. Didn't weigh it, but it looks bigger than 50#.  How much bigger we'll never know.  That's me on the left.  Looking at that photo, only now do I realize why I always got picked on and why the girls wouldn't pay attention to me!  A wimpy kid dressed like that, smelling like fish. I did get called a nice guy a lot.  Yep, that's the kiss of death!

    I wish I still had that belly.  I went from a six-pack to a keg.
