Best Day Fishing Yet
I love to fish. You see, I could do this all the time in spring, summer or fall. My husband, Armand, and I get on our pontoon and go. On this day we got a late start. It’s 1:30pm. We go to our “lucky spot” and put the polls in. Now you see we fish for what ever is biting. Pan fish and Walleye mostly.
I fish with a leech and slip bobber. Nothing is biting so far, so I get daring and put another poll in on the other side of the pontoon. Armand yells that I have one on the other poll. I grab the poll just as it is going to go overboard. I’m reeling the fish in and I just can’t do it anymore. I yell for Armand to help me. He comes over and is pulling the line in by hand and I’m reeling. Armand saw the fish and gets it in the net. 23” 7lb. largemouth Bass, a big old fatso. We are laughing so hard that I could not reel the fish in, when the other poll goes flying in the water. Armand was able to get it with the net. I was able to reel this one in and it’s another Largemouth Bass, 20”, 5lb. another fatso. When things settle down, Armand said I’m right. The natural jig action (my tremor) is how I am getting them. These 2 fish are the biggest I have ever caught.
I put the line in the water again and sit back to soak up the sun. The poll jerks so hard I almost lost my grip. The fish breaks water and Armand says, look at that Musky over there. I told him it was mine. Armand does not even realize that the Musky is on my line! I’m trying to tire the fish out. My arms are so sore, I yell to Armand to help. He said “not again”. I got the fish up to the pontoon and Armand nets it for me. The musky is 48” and 30lbs. Armand said a true musky fishing person would put it back. I remind him that I am not a true Musky fishing person. They fish with $200 rod and reels and the lures costs $20. I have a 7cent hook and leech, and a 5’ poll. We head in and ran them right to the taxidermist. I should have them on my wall by Christmas.
