Largemouth Ass

Meet Mark Steven Jones of Clarksville, Tennessee. Mark and his friend Robert Earl Wilridge yearned for some quality time in the great outdoors, so they did what any country boy would do; they got hopped up on goofballs and went fishing.

Houston County authorities on Saturday charged two Clarksville, Tenn. men with several wildlife violations after they were found in possession of more than 40 fish, which was well beyond the legal limit.

The two men, Mark Steven Jones, 35, and Robert Earl Wilridge, 28, were each charged with three counts of over the creel limit of bass, illegal possession of wildlife and not having a life jacket. Bond for both men was set at $1,500.

The arrests came after a Houston County landowner reported two men trespassing on his property after fishing on Yellow Creek. The landowner told responding sheriff’s deputies, that when he confronted the two men, they “mooned” him and tipped over a portable toilet.

My father often took me fishing when I was a kid. I never had an appreciation of the endeavor because I thought sitting in a boat drinking all day was a waste of time. I guess it would have been more fun if dad and I dumped over a few toilets.

  1. Boys will be boys. Here in the midwest they try to engage in “cow tipping” but in Tennessee it’s toilet tipping. Both probably smell about the same. 😉

  2. Fishing is about as boring as anything I’ve ever done. Catching, however, is loads of fun and the boringness of fishing can be outweighed when catching is frequent. I’ve never gotten bored enough to consider tipping over a toilet, I’ll have to sit on that awhile and ponder the idea. 🙂

    On second thought, I bet Slick Willy Clintoon tipped over a few toilets in his day.
