The word legend to me reminds me of the legend of big blackie. My dad told me all about how he was a giant sand bass as big as ten men. He comes at night and eats people who litter in the lake. I have heard several different people talk about big blackie over the years, so I know my dad di not make up this legend. I image some adults made up this legend to scare kids lol although I was never scared because I never littered.
