Lamprey eels were a huge problem several years ago in the Great Lakes.

I shot a gar on KY a couple of years ago that had a big one. First and only one that I have ever seen there.It's not so much if you win or lose - it's how you shoot the flaming arrow while riding a camel.

There are eels, and there are lamprey eels. I think the one we see is the American eel.
40 years ago i had an eel in a quart jar of alcohol that my neighbor caught in Barkley. Eels are rarely seen but they are native to Kentucky.'But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.
You know, if you put spaghetti sauce on your ramen noodles, it tastes just like broken dreams and disappointment.

You used to be able to catch American eels around here pretty regularly when I was a kid but I haven't seen one of those in a while.It's not so much if you win or lose - it's how you shoot the flaming arrow while riding a camel.

Is that what them things are? I thought they were some kind of leech. Caught a carp the other day at Rough and one about 8 inches long fell off the top of it when i picked it up. Left a nasty looking hole on the fish. Stepped on it and blood went everywhere. Then it swam off, like a snake. Learn something everyday.

I caught what I assume is an American Eel on the canal in the late 80's at about 4am. I wasnt' sure if I had an eel or a snake on the line with nothing but a flashlight to see with. It was about 2 ft long and as big around as a coke bottle.
