Big Bass In Front Yard

A neighbor who lives across the street informed me on 10/3/2018 that the fish disappeared during a recent storm. Since there was no sign of the bass, I had to believe she was telling the truth.

The fish has disappeared at least once before, then reappeared with a new paint job. Perhaps it's getting another makeover?

The big fish, professionally repainted since it was first reported to us in 2009, is supposedly a refugee from the homeowner's former seafood restaurant.

We'd received an earlier tip that the big fish was gone, so this improved address might help future anglers.
