Ladies grab your coffee, I am really going to take you on an adventure, the first fishing trip of the season. Don’t know if you can handle it especially if you don’t like to fish.
You know the weather has been horrible. All our fishing Buddies have been giving us a hard time because we have not been fishing yet. You know I am one of those “fair weather” fisher women so is the Hubby. So after looking at the weather map for Monday, we decided we would go.
I had purchased this cute little “blue tube” that was supposed to help you coral your crickets so they would not jump all over your boat. Well, I will tell you right now, they don’t work. Bass Pro got on my bad side today when I tried to get my crickets out of the silly thing. You see it has this tiny little spout on the top and when you lift it up to get one out, the whole container of cricket’s falls on top of the one you want to come out. After you shake it about ten times, you are MAD and your cricket looks like it has been through a “fire drill” because everyone steps on him trying to get out also.
I got the Hubby one of those cute holders but he laughed and said he was going to use his “old faithful” holder where you stick your hand in the top and they jump all over your sleeve and arm then jump off in the boat. Needless to say, the Hubby ran out of crickets before we got through fishing.
We went way up above the bridge and I will tell you right now that I DID NOT CATCH THE FIRST FISH! Asked me if I was unhappy about that. I blamed it on the cricket holder. You see we had some worms at home and I asked the Hubby if I should get them before we left and he said NO. Well, after about fifteen minutes, he was wishing we had them until HE CAUGHT THE FIRST FISH and it was a big one. Then he caught another one and I threw my line in and I caught fish as fast as I could put my line in the water. Ladies, this is not a fish tale. Never in all my years have I caught so many fish that fast. One time I forgot to put a cricket on my line and the Hubby said, hey slow down, you don’t even have a cricket on your hook and before he could get the words of his mouth, I had caught a big “Shell Cracker”! It was so big and my pole was so little that I could hardly get it out of the water and into the boat. The Hubby just opened the “live well” and I just dropped him in. Of course I had to take him off the hook, you know the Hubby would not do that for me. I have to tell you that he did not catch one at all. I caught four! Man, do I have bragging rights or what? Wayne’s place won’t be the same when I get through telling this fish tale.
I must say, I know now why I see so many men fishing. It is the most fun in the world, especially if you catch fish! Ask me if I was enjoying the moment! I’m telling you now, grab a pole and tell your Hubby to move over you are ready to go fishing with him! Don’t have a Hubby? Maybe your friends will let you borrow one! Till next time, Bye now.
