      My first 3 lb. Bass was June 16, 1983, I was so happy. I've been bass fishing since the age of 5, but never got any with some size until 1983. I wanted to taxidermy ...more that bass and the taxidermy laughed at me and said she's too small go get you a bigger one. My feelings were hurt. 22 years later I went back into that taxidermy and the owner was still alive and I said do you remember me when I walked in with a 3 lb. Bass and you laughed at me about it in 1983 . He sighed and said what is this about? I sighed and showed him pictures of 100 10 lb. Bass up to 14 lbs. and he said good God all mighty is that you. I said I'm a Professional Bass Angler. I just wanted to tell you that if you had not laughed at me I would've not pushed it harder to do better. You actually made me into a better angler by laughing. He apologized and I said no need to apologize I'm here to tell you thank you, but he was shocked. I gave him a 12 lb. Bass for his wall.
