With baited breath, Big Mouth Billy Bass delivered a fintastic eulogy that left the mourners reeling.

His wife is the sole survivor and was glad his friends had the oppor-tuna-ty to give him a ferry nice sendoff.

Sounds like a great candidate for a Viking funeral. If he's been fishing a long time, setting his boat on fire and sending it out to sea would be the best way to kill the smell.

For crossing the river Styx I imagine.

It's too late for a Viking funeral. They died on the 11th, with only the 49er's in attendence.

In Texas, this would have been a $60,000 80-mph bass boat.

Years ago my grandma gave me a figurine that says, “Old Fisherman Never Die They Just Get Tangled Up In Their Flies.” I've never understood it.

So sad he was only 37 years old. I think it's a great way to honor someone.

In some places, after everyone left the graveyard, some workers would dump the guy in the ground, sell the coffin, buy beer and go fishing in the boat.
