Mike Stevens wrote on Facebook: On our first wedding anniversary, my wife and I were in Cabo (with no plans on fishing), and out of nowhere she suggests we charter a boat. She caught a nice dorado, and I caught and released a striped marlin. We had the restaurant at our hotel prepare the dorado, and we had it for our anniversary dinner on the beach. My wife caught our first-anniversary dinner!

When I turned 18, I decided I had enough and figured I would show him by joining the military. Yeah that showed him. I didn't tell him I had joined or that I was leaving. I merely wrote a note, left it on the table, and left. After basic and tech training, I soon after deployed to Iraq and was gone for 18 months. When I returned, almost three years had passed since I had seen my family, and I was both excited and nervous to see them. I got home from the airport and everyone was there to welcome me home--except him. I figured he was still a little upset. That evening he showed up and only said two words to me: "Let's go." I was scared to death but went anyhow. We drove down to my Granny's pond, got out, and started catfishing. We sat there for two hours in complete silence and had only caught one fish. We returned home, still not a word said, and cleaned and grilled the one fish. After eating the silence was broken, as he only said: "Pretty good, huh?" To this day, he has been my best friend and that was the most remarkable fish I have ever eaten.
