    snake69 Equal opportunity fishing

    25lb kingfish
    He began his outing with a 25lb kingfish on the first drop and a 20lb snapper on the second. On the third drop he had just scored his first ever King Terakihi when his cell phone rang. It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition in ICU.
    The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that he would be there as soon as possible. As he hung up, he realised he was leaving what was shaping up to be his best ever fishing trip. He decided to get in a couple more drifts before heading for the hospital. He ended up catching several personal bests, limited out on three species and, all in all, had his best days fishing by far. He was jubilant!
    Then he remembered his wife. Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked him about his wife's condition.
    The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and kept fishing, didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself. While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself on the ocean, your wife has been languishing in the ICU! It's just as well you went ahead and finished the fishing because it will more than likely be your last trip! For the rest of your wife's life she will require round the clock care. And you'll be her care giver!"
    The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed.
    The doctor snickered, patted him on the shoulder, and said, "Just joking. She's dead. What'd you catch?”
