    Thanks guys for hoping it was true for me! That actually made me feel bad for posting it. I do hope it gave you guys a good laugh or smile.

    Stuart, my friends and I used to play the old HTML April Fool's joke on one another back in the day. That was an easy one and it made for a great time. All you had to do was save a web-page in your browser and then just edit it in notepad, then save again as .HTML and you have your own fabricated news story. You can imagine how realistic it would have looked on local news style web-page. You had to actually email the web-page that you saved; but, most people thought it was a link to the real story. Now; most sites are too dynamic to simply edit in HTML and maintain formatting.

    Also; you can do this easier by using (generator) websites that have joke templates. The one I used is:

    Hopefully, we will get plenty of fishing reports this weekend to get back in to the fish!

    I apologize if I caused any of you ill-will from the post! My intent was to be fun spirited! However; I realize that I have too much of a conscience to pull ruses on people.
