Could Bill be floundering here?
Nah, it’s a fluke..
Bet she’s heard Bill say that before.
Throw it back in so there is no proof and take a page out of Snoopy’s playbook. Everytime you tell about how big it was, add 50 lbs.
First you measure to be sure it’s legal (I think flounder is 12" in VA). If it is, you have dinner. If not, toss it back and tell it to grow up a little more and you’ll be back for it later.
