1968 – Thomas Culpepper (right) and brother with 32 lb Grouper
A “Fish Story” Circa 1968
This is an awesome photo submitted by Thomas Culpepper showing him and his brother Chuck holding a 32 lb. Grouper. WHAT LUCKY KIDS!
At first glance, we might think that THEY were the ones who caught it. It certainly is plausible that they did, because a grouper biting on the hook below can’t see how old the person is on the other end of the line. But knowing how it feels like pulling up a log up from the reef way down below – whoever reeled this one in had some great arm muscles!
The story behind the photo, well…it’s just a tad different and a closely held family secret for many years; they bought this fish at the dock! Thomas said that his Father (who has passed away) hung on to this photo for years! Now that’s what we call a great family vacation memory and a true FISH TALE!!!
