I was walking Penny past one of the migrant worker houses down the street. A man leaning against the porch beckoned me over and, beaming with pride, opened the lid of his cooler to reveal these two gi-normous fish. (I'm not sure if it's clear from the photo, but that's a big full-size cooler, and each of those fish is over two feet long.) He spoke no English, but I managed to gather that he'd caught them in Lake Ponchatrain. What are those things? In the context, they looked monstrous and prehistoric.
