Does this sound familiar to my fellow fishermen living in the north? Reels cleaned, oiled and respooled. Tackle organized and reorganized for the 10th time. Spring ...more please come early this year!
Reflecting back over the last two years of fishing....so thankful to my Uncle for introducing me to this hobby. Growing up my Dad took us fishing once every few ...more years at a farm pond but I was just a fair weather fisherman. Two years ago while going through a very difficult time in life, an Uncle who is an expert fisherman invited me to go with him for a day. I didn't land many fish but for some reason I got hooked in a big way. I've learned so much from so many great people, videos and magazines in this short time but still consider myself an amateur. My pile of gear went from one cheep rod to a pile of good equipment. :) I hope to enjoy many more years chasing big ones in many different places. Here are some highlights from the last two years....most of which I credit to luck vs skill. :) Thanking God for making fish! Three biggest ones were.... 10 lb 14 oz - 27" - Florida 5.4 lb - 24" - Ohio 5.24 lb - 22" - Ohio Center picture - didn't get meas. Happy fishing and tight lines to all in the following year!
I have never caught a fish before that jumped like this little thing. There was one jump that must have been 2'-3' out of the water. One of the sweetest ...more fights with a fish I've had.
That's the second fish from that area Jared that you posted. Here's another shot of your 10-14.
