Waves and Fishes

I wonder if in the boating world whether wave height and fish size are related. Both increase in size with the telling.

Re: Waves and Fishes

The problem with estimating a wave height, is the best you can do is stand on your deck and estimate the distance from the waterline to the top of your scull and see if you can see over the next wave. Not a very accurate form of measurement.

I figure that means you got a long nose. Does it get longer when you talk about the waves you have been in or the fish you have caught?
