Some of you may have read my offering in prose regarding a recent event here in New Orleans regarding the surprise catch of a 44 lb. catfish.

It was based on this news report in the Times Picayune:
http://www.nola.com/archives/t-p/index.ssf?/base/news-3/1109401084142180.xml  

So after I wrote my story, I thought, "wouldn't it be fun to write a second part, but this time, (since I'm toying with point of view and perspective anyhow) to write a story from the perspective of the fish?"

So that's the challenge folks.

You can use the news report, or, if you like, I don't mind if you use the characters in my own offering, titled "Think Like A Fish" and found here:

I confess I have tried my own challenge, and thus far I'm having a bit of a tough time with it; so I'm hoping to find some inspiration through you all. Besides, I think it's a fun idea!  

It just occurred to me it could be either--so I came back to edit.
