BERLIN (Reuters) Sun May 7, 2006 11:01 AM BST - U.S. President George W. Bush told a German newspaper his best moment in more than five years in office was catching a big perch in his own lake.
"You know, I've experienced many great moments and it's hard to name the best," Bush told weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked about his high point since becoming president in January 2001.
"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound (3.402 kilos) perch in my lake," he told the newspaper in an interview published on Sunday.
Bush said the worst moment was September 11 when hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.
"In such a situation it takes a while before one understands what is happening," Bush said. "I would say that this was the hardest moment, once I had the real picture before my eyes."
Because Bild could not immediately furnish English quotes, Bush's comments were translated from the German. The paper said the White House planned to release an authorised English version of the interview on Monday.

In all seriousness, I'm sure he was joking with the journalists, you know George.
However, even with the jokes, which are inappropriately timed as usual, there lingers truth, because as it has been said over and over again - he really didn't do anything good for this country.
But if fishing was what brought him the most joy in these years while sitting backseat and chewing on the leather upholstery in Dick Cheney's chariot of fire, then I suppose the American people can rest easy knowing that this country is safe as long as George fishes and doesn't try to do us anymore favors.
