AWESOME WATER GORILLA (H.A.W.G)
very long time ago Before the ice and the volcanoes started to blow
There lived a ferocious bass
Meanest fish in its class.
This huge awesome water gorilla,
Would give any caveman a thriller.
If he dared to lure her out
Even with the club he couldn't win the bout.
This big old bass even had teeth
And could sink those babies 3" deep.
She would fatten up on anything in site
Been known to give the caveman a nasty bite.
But this tough old gal knew how to survive
Not surprised if she is still alive.
Made it past those rumbles and quakes,
And how do we know this story is not fake?
Because her offspring got caught in Montgomery Lake
ROD AND REEL
out and bought a new rod and reel,
Felt just right, had a good feel,
Rushed down to the water to try my luck,
Went to make a cast, the reel got stuck.
My jig and pig just wouldn't flip,
My rod and line acted like a bullwhip,
But I was sure I had purchased the best,
OOPS's, Sorry, I spooled my reel with 100 pound test.
likes to play in- the back yard and have some fun, Except when the
neighbors cat has her on the run. Took my pot belly Hawg out for a
walk made all the city folk stop and gawk.
strolled down to the boat dock to listen to stories and fish talk.
My pot belly Hawg saw the water and jumped in, I had forgotten that
Hawg liked to swim She was giving as a gift to me, Rescued from the
drought of 83. Gonna miss that pot belly Hawg, Next time I think
I'll ask for a dog.
wonder how they fish up there on Mars, Do they fish for Bass or fish
for Gars? What if there's no water up there, Do they have to fish in
the air? And what would they use for bait? And how long would they
have to wait? Could you fish on that empty range? Bet the fish you
caught would look awful strange. Next time you point your telescope
at the stars Please tell me, How's the fishing up there on Mars?

He's a Boston-Redneck.

THE BASS KID (Bill Dance)
the time he was three, he could out fish you and me. Had bass
catching fever as a child, Now he's got it permanent - went Hawg
aluminum boat with the gadgets is his iron horse, could head in any
direction, it would set the course. His fishing rod and reel became
a lasso wasn't much with that thing he couldn't do.
he showed up - all the bass swam and hid they knew they didn't want
to tangle with Billy The Bass Kid. once he herded up a school of 100
bass up a creek and caught every one of them within a week.
has it he lassoed a big one on the river Tennessee, the big fish
towed Bill's boat up to the boarder of Kentucky and just when Bill
thought he had it, the fish turned and ran, pulled Billy The Bass
Kid all the way down to the Pickwick Dam.
say he's still down there battling that big Hawg, Through thick and
thin, rainy weather and heavy fog. Some say they're going to make a TV
show, some say they did, About the one and only, The great BILLY THE
Mad Fisherman (Charlie Moore)
likes to fish on a lake called Chebacco,
Always brings some cigars and a box full of tackle.
take some people to tape
While watching at home his fan club grows.
Charlie likes to encourage catch and release,
keeps only the one he is going to eat.
They tell me he throws all the big bass away,
"WOW" I can't wait to go fishing with Charlie someday.
Jack and Jill, now both over the hill,
went out to go fishing by the mill.
Jill caught a huge 17 pound bass,
Bass Pro Jack became flabbergast.
Jill got her picture in the paper,
Jack stroked out and met his maker.
We all know that angler who thinks he is hip, You know the
one that's always flapping his lip, The one that goes fishing with
celebrities of world fame, But when you ask him he can't seem to
remember their names.
your eyes he will try to pull the wool, Something about his stories
always sound like bull. He tells you about the big one that got
away, or the one that broke his fishing line yesterday.
hangs around the local tackle shop like a permanent fixture, Staring
at the Wall Of Fame but you never see his picture.
to think of it he sounds just like you know who, Could it be that
he's a spitting image of me and you.
the golden moon shines so bright
So big with all it's might,
It has a gravitational pull
but only when it's full
To lure fishermen out at night.
we really don't know the answer to why
we go fishing at this particular time - but we have to try.
I guess it's because we were told
Years ago by some wise men of old
That fish bite during a full moon and that ain't no lie.
I hear there is going to be moon out tonight,
that's why I'm getting things ready at my fishing site.
And should I ever figure this gravitational stuff out
I'll be sure to give you all a moonstruck shout -
On why the fish bite when the moon is just right!
PASS THE BASS
you hear about little Johnny Tucker who caught a big bass for the
and said he would feed everyone after mass that day.
And after they said grace,
They ate and ate and ate,
and not knowingly consumed the world record bass away.
Toho West was cold and windy that February morning,
at 5:00am after 3 cups of coffee I was still yawning. My bass guide
"Mad Dog" looked good in his brand new Ranger, as we
rigged up I asked questions of alligators and any danger.
from Boston I wasn't sure if I still wanted to go, But the price was
right and the previous client was a no show.
Three dozen shiners in the live well and not carrying a beeper, we
headed out in search of that big old keeper.
20 minutes into fishing along a weed line, My bobber went down and
things started to look fine. But my bass guide had turned into a
Marine drill instructor, barking out orders, waving his arms like a
Boston Pops conductor.
your rod up to ten o'clock and reel in that slack"
"Don't do anything until I tell ya, you hear me Mack"
"Now set the hook and hold on tight
and fight that Hawg with all your might."
bass dived and jumped and thrashed around,
my knees were shaking my heart did pound.
The fishing line stretched but that Hawg didn't get away,
that 8 pound bass really made my day.
on my wall it's such a nice site to see
that hard earned Hawg from that lake in Kissimmee.
It was back in 1932, George said,"Look what I can do"
He made a short cast and caught the world record bass,
And was just as surprised as you.
I went out and bought myself a
neatest invention since the thermometer.
Not only does it tell you where the waters deep,
it shows a picture of the bass and wakes you if you sleep.
But this device does something else that gives it a high score, It
shows you on screen exactly the fishes weight
and tells you exactly what to use for bait. Now I am fishing in a
different class, Just last week I caught over 10,000 pounds of bass.
Fishing - What a Bore!!!
Mr. Black Bass
Mr. Black Bass, have you seen any Hawg?
Yes Sir, Yes Sir, there were three in the Bog.
One got caught by a boy with a cane,
The second got hooked by a girl named Jane,
The third one was caught last night in the rain.
Bye, Peacock Bass'
once was a Peacock Bass fisherman from Peru,
Who fished the Amazon River in a canoe,
The canoe was made out of banana skin,
Whoever built it built it to thin,
A school of Piranha ate right through.
Story of Hawgerella
upon a time there lived a bass named Sowsella,
She lived in the lake under a weed-covered umbrella.
The special news of the lake that day Was That Prince Largemouth's
parade was heading this way.

But if she was to be his wife she had to be big, fat, and very wide.
two sisters knew the Prince was looking for a heavy dish, So they
ate all the food and left Sowsella a skeleton from a small fish.
those two sisters could be cruel and mean,
Both of them thought they should be the queen,
So they made Sowsella clean up the crawdad shells around the house
While they continued to fatten up for their new royal spouse.
her sisters started getting fatter and fatter
Poor Sowsella was getting more sadder and sadder.
But the Fairy Hawgmother showed up at the front door
And said, "Sowsella, you need not be sad anymore."

So she turned Sowsella into a big fat Hawg in a flash.
And told her the moment she left the umbrella
She would turn into the beautiful "Hawgerella."

And when she saw the Prince she tried not to be afraid.
But when the Prince saw her he yelled out, "WOW, what a
beautiful sow, And moved towards her, but she took off and he lost
her in the crowd.
Largemouth ordered all his subjects to search for her location,
Seems the Prince had fallen in love and was losing his patience. His
Minute Man Muskie started the search,
Followed by a company of his loyal perch.
the Pickerel Patrol was put on red alert,
A division of sunfish was ready to disburse.
The Trout Troop assembled at his request,
And a caravan of catfish was told to head west.

But couldn't find Hawgerella, the Prince was in pain.
He hired inspector Cluse-Calico And Detective Hawgumbo,
And immediately assigned them to the case Code Name: Miss
next day they reported they saw her at the north side of the lake.
Prince Largemouth and his subjects headed out so fast they left
behind a wake, And when he got to Sowsella's home he tripped and
fell. The sisters said, "Look his Royal Hawgness is laying down
by our crawdad well."
rushed out of the house to be by his side,
Then turned into Hawgerella right before his eyes.
The Prince took Hawgerella to his Royal Hawg Hole in the middle of
the lake, Where he fed her lots of barbecue, kibby ribby, and shad
then on the lake was full of good times and laughter,
And Prince Largemouth and Hawgerella lived happily ever after.

For All The Bassin' You Do - This Hawgs For You"
Three Little Hawgs
Pike family had woken to a mean appetite, as they searched for
breakfast they would snap and bite. Big daddy Pike was the meanest
of them all, got labeled the Water Wolf, always started a brawl.
this wolf was looking for a good size meal and those three little
Hawgs had Pike appeal, so the family headed out to do some Hawgging
picked up the scent of bass and started jogging.
bass they came up to lived in the heavy weeds, but the Pikes broke
through, gave chase and started to feed. That Hawg put up a good
fight like a true water gorilla, that battle became known as
"The Thriller in the Hydrilla. Second Hawg made his home in the
middle of the lily pads, the Pikes circled the area and said
"Sic em Dad". Daddy Pike wanted to show that Hawg who was
boss, he smashed the pads, grabbed the bass and threw it for a toss.
The bass landed on a pile of macaroni moss, knew it was over for
him, it was his loss.
Mamma Pike said with glee "look, we're having Hawgaroni"
large mouth bass and macaroni, Hawgaroni taste so sweet, Hawgaroni
good to eat, Yeah, we're having Hawgaroni, Mamma Pikes favorite
third Hawg made his home in the logs and sticks, Pikes knew in order
to get him out they had to think quick. Daddy Pike blew a whistle
and yelled out "This is a raid", They slammed those logs
but couldn't get past that barricade.
Now you see this Hawg was born with a brain, so this was one Hawg
they wouldn't claim. He waited till they knocked themselves silly,
then he came out with a rope made from the lily. and said, "You
all should have not fooled with me", then Hawg tied the Pike
family to his underwater tree.
And while they were half unconscious he pulled out their teeth that
way they wouldn't give the rest of the bass any more grief.
they came to, the Pike family started to pucker, now daddy Pike was
as harmless as a bottom feeding sucker.
The Hawg knew it was safe, he untied the rope and set them
Free and told them "Don't come back looking for me". Last
thing the Pike family wanted on their mind was bass so they high
tailed it out of there super fast.
went back to reading their "How to catch a Hawg" book,
thought it would be best if they gave it a second look, realized
that they had forgot to read the last page, says, If the Hawg is
hiding in wood, don't work up a rage cause you ain't gonna get it,
you may as well just forget it!
