In an interview last week with a German Newspaper President Bush said:
"You know, I've experienced many great moments and it's hard to name the best," Bush told weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked about his high point since becoming president in January 2001.
"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound (3.402 kilos) perch in my lake."
An odd thing to say even for this yahoo! So I decided to do a little fishing of my own and discovered some interesting information.
The Texas state record for "Yellow Perch" is 1.4 lbs. more than 6 lbs less than George's catch. So did George set a new state record more than five times the old one or was he just lying again?
There is another species of Perch on the books in Texas and this one does grow to enormous size. The Nile Perch has topped several hundred pounds in some parts of the world and the
record for Nile Perch in Texas is 12.6 lbs. However, it is also listed as a prohibited exotic species and is illegal to posses. So if Bush has planted them in "his lake" he is in violation of state fish and game law.
So which is it George. Are you a liar or are you lawbreaker?
