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!!!
