You don’t catch monsters after only 20 minutes of fishing, do you?
“Lunch break” is the key phrase in this story. It’s not like you’ve got 20 minutes to really do more than make a few casts, catch a few bluegills or a bass or two, and just get outside to stretch the legs.
These friends caught a big, beautiful sturgeon in 20 minutes on their lunch break.
We assume there are some fish we really have to work for: big muskies, heavy king salmon, huge catfish, giant sturgeon. These are the kind of fish you prepare for and set aside the day to pursue.
Of course, giant fish do get caught in the first few minutes of an outing and even on the first cast. It makes these kinds of fishing stories so memorable.
These guys were at their day jobs and, as Bryce says about his friend Cory, “While stuff was loading on the computer, he said, ‘Let’s go down and catch a sturgeon.’ He’s always said that he can come down and catch one in 30 minutes. I didn’t believe him. But we were only here about 20 minutes, and we caught one. So I guess I have to believe him now.”
