I’m not posting about the camping trip today because I have to share what happened today. First of all because of Whiskey we had to replace most of our fishing gear, so we spent the morning and afternoon at Cabela’s replacing and updated. By the time we got out of there we had spent $150 and we were ready to fish!
So we drove up to a new lake for us. It was windy but we didn’t care- we wanted to fish. Dirks first cast in was instantly taken. But that were all the good ends.
Soon after that my new reel got tangled – took me awhile to fix it, then the fish just keep playing with me. Would chase the lure, maybe peck at it but no takers. I decided to try one of Dirk’s new spinners – Bam! Fish on! When we went to release the bastard he wiggled the hook into my thumb!
Because of my hypersensitivity- well, let’s just say I was done. We were lucky to have a trolling fisherman nearby that happen to be an RN. So after the removal ordeal Dirk goes back to fishing while I watch and take pictures. Good thing I did because it the only record we will have that he ever had a pole and reel.
He went to clean out the fish and his pole was resting on the bank one second and gone the next. Shot like a rocket into the depths of the lake! What ever took the bait must have been big cause it was gone like lightning. He said he has never seen anything like it.
As we were driving home we realized that no matter where we go we always have an adventure. We are beginning to wonder if it’s not just fate.
