This story reported on SonomaNews.com would be pretty unbelievable had I not already been witness to an angler catching a full bottle of Killian's Irish Red beer on a cat fishing trip.
This fish isn't fighting much," he was heard to say.Eventually he brought in a king salmon that weighed more than 18 pounds - no doubt a record for Lake Shasta. Adding to the weight of the monster fish were two small bottles (tenths) of wine in its stomach.
Ok, so it was all just an inventive prank. However, you have to admire the creativity.
The Killian's story is true.
Sockeye Wine (also true) is distributed by Precept Brands.
