Anyone else get a kick out of the movie Grumpier Old Men? The movie was hilarious, I also loved the whole plot too.
I loved the fable roaming around Wabasha about a gigantic catfish that actually smiles at fishermen who try to catch it. At the end, an old fisherman Sven is walking up the road with a broken fishing pole repeating over and over again, “that’s the biggest fish I ever seen.”
John Gustafson and Max Goldman drive by him trying to get to Goldman’s wedding, they stop and ask the fisherman what happened? He exclaims, “I fought the beast for an hour, right when I got him near land, he bit my pole in two and smiled at me then took off.”
The movie in my opinion has gone down in history as one of the best fishing movies ever made. If you’ve never seen, get out to Blockbuster and rent it!
