Uncle Jack took Ammon and I fishing in Lake Shore, Utah, the other day along the road that follows the drain ditch into Utah Lake. There were lots of fish there, and we actually caught eight of varying size. There was a large channel catfish that was about two feet in length. There were several medium and a few small yellow belly catfish. Then we caught a couple of carp, also. One was almost two feet.
Uncle Jack calls the carp the monster fish. He gets the name from his grandsons Erik and Josh Brailsford. He takes them fishing and they call the ugly carp monster fish.
As some of you might know, Uncle Jack has a colorful vocabulary. He tries to control it around kids, but sometimes it still shows its startling head. Well, Ammon has not heard or had much instruction about such words as he sometimes heard from Uncle Jack. Once when referring to a certain ugly fish he used one of the common colorful cuss words as an adjective. It was quite innocent, but startled me and even Jack. He was appropriately counseled, and I have never heard it again. But you know what the song says, First time for every thing. And this was it!
