To be honest, the only place i have fished outside of Colorado was in Kansas, when i was a little. We lived out in the country and had 3 ponds that sat behind our house in a huge pasture, and i would try fishing there with a string on a stick. LOL! We would go frog hunting at night though and have fried frog legs. We went to some other local ponds to fish but all i ever caught were little perch. My son is a Kansas fisherman, and he is into catching those monster flatheads and catfish. I think the largest one so far that he caught was 49 pounds. I find it sorta odd that that is what i catch the most here, catfish, like they navigate to my line for some strange reason. I remember going fishing with my grandpa up in Wray Colorado at some reservoir up there, and also catching big turtles with him from a river, and he would cook the turtle. I would bury the turtle eggs in the yard if a turtle had them in them, thinking i would grow baby turtles. Well guess what? It never worked. Ha!
