It was a nice day at the lake today. This fish were not exactly biting like crazy. The water was high and murky due to last weekend's heavy rains. BUT -- I managed to reel in a few, including a couple of nice ones.
Like anyone who fishes (especially one who does it as infrequently and poorly as yours truly), I can take all kinds of license in telling you about my experience. The one that got away would have, of course, been a trophy of gargantuan size. I fought the guy for a good five minutes before he . . . well you can figure out the rest.
As usual after a few hours on the water, my spirit was renewed and my soul restored a bit. That's a good day. The smiles below are genuine.
Maybe next time the fish will give us more to brag about.
How fun, Bob!! I would certainly be pleased with that catch. And, yes...I can relate to the one that got away. ;)
We made our first attempt of the year earlier in the week (before this ridiculous cold front!) and caught a few bass. I'll be honest and admit my husband out-fished me 6 to 2. I'll get him next time. (can you tell we're competitive?)
Hope you get to go again before too long.
We're still buying our fish at the grocery store.
I fished with my dad a lot as a kid. Haven't done it in years but would love to do it again!
