Share your fish stories with us!

Earlier this week, you may have seen the story of Free Martin and the monster bass he caught on a Buzz Lightyear fishing rod.

The story was hilarious, and the fish was truly impressive.

And we’re sure BDN readers have all kinds of great fish stories of their own that they’d love to share.

If you’ve got a story about the one that didn’t get away, send it along (with photos, please) to

Who knows? I might feature your fish tale in a future blog or column.
