GONE FISHING • Bet you were upset the last time you snagged Page 2likely 2nd Quarter 2010 and lost a $5 or $10 (U.S.) fishing lure. Imagine then how you might feel if you used a Million Dollar Lure from MacDaddy Fishing Lures. This 12-inch (30.5 centime-ters) trolling lure, designed to catch marlin, is crafted with just over 3 pounds (1.4 kg) of glimmering gold and platinum and encrusted with 100 carats of diamonds and rubies (4,753 stones to be exact). Cost? Just as the name says — a cool $1 million (U.S.). • Casting call: In July 1999, Brent Olgers of Macon, Ga., established a world record for the longest period of consecutive casting. Using a Zebco 33 Classic reel, Olgers cast 6,501 times in just over 24 hours, averaging 270 casts per hour. Each cast had to be at least 45 feet (13.7 m) in length. • Best prize for a record fish happened in March 2006, during the Texas Carp Challenge. That’s when angler Al St. Cyr landed a 43.13-pound (19.6 kilogram), state-record common carp in Austin’s Town Lake. That fish earned St. Cyr a $250,000 (U.S.) payday from the American Carp Society, the largest prize ever for a carp fisherman in the United States. • The eyes have it: Why do bass often strike a lure right after being released and not remember it? Because a bass has two memory centers, one for each eye. For example, the first time a bass hits your lure he sees it with his right eye; if he hits it again right away, more than likely he saw it with the left eye.

• King salmon, or Chinook salmon, are the largest of the Alaska salmon, typically 25-50 lbs. (11.3-22.7 kg). The world-record King salmon was caught on the Kenai River, in Alaska. It weighed 97 lbs. 4 oz (44.1 kg).

• Man’s interest in the yellowfin tuna is an ancient one. Research on the tuna’s migration, feeding and spawning practices began in the sixth century B.C. by Greek fishermen who prized their delicate flesh. • The oldest known painting of a fisherman using a rod is from Egypt and dated at about 2000 B.C. Claudius Aelian (170-235 AD), a Roman author and teacher, mentions trout fishing with artificial flies with hooks in Macedonia. Fly-fishing has been around for more than 2,000 years. There is even evi-dence of the use of flies tied on bone hooks as early as 1400 B.C. in Egypt. • Shark fishermen beware: Sharks attack about 50 to 75 people each year worldwide, with perhaps 8 to 12 fatalities, according to data compiled in the International Shark Attack File. Although shark attacks get a lot of attention, this is far less than the number of people killed each year by elephants, bees, crocodiles, lightning or many other natural dangers. • Ice fishing is one of the only sectors of fishing that continues to grow rapidly, at a pace of 10 to 15 percent a year. • More than 90 percent of the rainbow trout sold in the United States is farm raised. • The largest brown trout weighed over 40 pounds (18.1 kg) and was caught in Arkansas on May 9, 1992.

One day, while driving home from his fishing trip in the pouring rain, a man got a flat tire outside a monastery. A monk came out and invited him inside to have dinner and spend the night. The motorist graciously accepted. That night he had a wonderful dinner of fish and chips. He decided to compliment the chef. Entering the kitchen, he asked the cook, “Are you the fish friar?” No, came the reply. “I’m the chip monk.”

The biggest fish are whale sharks. They can reach 40 feet (12.2 meters) in length. It is true that whales are bigger, but whales are not fish. Fish are cold blooded and use gills to breathe underwater. Whales maintain a warm body temperature.

by David Uffington Straight Talk About Debt Anytime somebody talks about having a "strategy" to get out of debt, it pays to be leery. There are scams galore, including those that promise (for a fee) to take your payments and make arrangements with lenders to accept a smaller amount each month. (Unless you send the check yourself, you really don't know where it's going.) However, there's a new book out that talks about strategy, and it's one you can trust: "Debt-Free Forever (Take Control of Your Money and Your Life)" by Gail Vaz-Oxlade (Collins, $14.95). There's a lot of no-nonsense tough love in Vaz-

JAMES BOND James Bond, the debonair secret agent created by writer Ian Fleming, has remained popular for decades. The 23 (so far) movies featuring the character have garnered a total box office gross of over $4.7 billion (U.S.) • On May 8, 1963, the first Bond movie, “Dr. No,” was released. It featured a then relatively unknown Scottish actor, Sean Connery, as 007. The movie was an immediate hit, and Connery went on to superstardom. Connery made six more Bond films after that initial portrayal. • Sean Connery wasn’t supposed to be the first James Bond. Roger Moore was Ian Fleming’s original choice to play the super spy. • Previous attempts to adapt the James Bond novels resulted in a 1954 television episode of “Climax Mystery Theatre,” based on the first novel, “Casino Royale.” The short-lived TV Bond starred American actor Barry Nelson as “Jimmy Bond.” • “You Only Live Twice” is the very first James Bond film to jettison the plot premise of the Fleming source material. Like the book, the movie sets the plot entirely in Ja-pan, uses Blofeld as the main villain and features the Bond girl, Kissy Suzuki. The plot however, was entirely the screenwriter’s imagination. • From Jaws to Bond? In the late 1970s, Steven Spielberg wanted to direct a James Bond

Oxlade's plans, and there should be if a strategy to reduce debt is going to succeed. After all, the average consumer has $16,000 in credit-card debt. But under the humor (yes, there's that, too) is a sound plan. She tells you upfront that it's going to be hard work, right in the first line of Chapter One, then moves quickly into the all-important first step: Find out where your money's going (spreadsheets are provided in the book). Step two, facing your debt, is where Vaz-Oxlade takes things beyond the typical "get out of debt" book. Not only are debts written down and categorized, they're critiqued and analyzed for what they really cost. There is plenty of hands-on help. Focus on longterm goals. Decide what you really want, because with debt control, it matters. Write down your core values, prioritize and set a goal. Find friends who are compatible with that goal (spending less to have fun). Swap bad habits for good ones. "Debt-Free Forever" explains how to get a handle on disappearing money (what happens when the pocket monster eats all the change

when you break a $20), 401(k) plans, insurance, credit cards and more. There are worksheets, guidelines, instructions on how to make a budget -- everything you need to become debt free, except for a pencil, piece of paper and a calculator. Vaz-Oxlade has a television show called "Til Debt Do Us Part" (about couples in debt) on CNBC and has written 11 books on finances. As she says on her blog: "Money is only a tool. You can use it to your advantage or you can misuse it to your detriment. You decide."
