Discussion Topic: Is Record-Smallmouth-Eating Canuck Nuts?

Steve Grail of Almonte, Ontario, says he caught a 12-plus-pound smallmouth bass—which would easily eclipse the world record of 11 pounds 15 ounces and the Canadian record of 9.84 pounds. But we’ll never know if it really weighed that much. Why?

From the Ottawa Citizen:

_What Mr. Grail did after he landed the bass isn't funny at all, especially to serious fishermen. He filleted the fish.

This is like painting over a Picasso, or turning down a date with a supermodel to attend a Senate committee hearing. . . .

Whether it's a record or not will not change Mr. Grail's plans for the fish.
"I'm going to eat it," he said._

Is Grail nuts? Or is everyone else just record-crazy?
