First fish.

We had a visit to the boat today from our friend, Rob, and his 5-year old son, Owen. Owen caught his first ever fish off the back of Nirvana. I hope he always remembers that moment.

We got away from the marina just in time, as tornado warnings sounded due to severe storms moving through. We made it home sweet home.

Spring break.

We have a tradition with Tim & Fiona…taking their family fishing on the lake during spring break. They have three great kids, who are a pleasure to be around. We had a wonderful day today. The weather was perfect and the fish were biting. A good time was had by all.

It’s time to renew my fishing license.   I decided it was high time for a new fishing pole as well.   The pole I’ve been using for years on the boat doesn’t cast well — it’ll go about 15 feet, no matter what.

I picked a ladies ugly stick.  It’s short; and it’s pink.  That ought to keep the menfolk away from it.

I took it out to the lake and tried it out.   It casts GREAT!   Very nice.   I caught a bunch of blue gill on white bread balls.

Now, where are those bass?….
