View Full Version : First Fish

06-09-2008, 12:54 AM
Took the girlfriend fishing with me today. She hooked into 3 fish today and then said that she didnt know if her wrist could handle anymore. I have to admit that I didnt really care about catching fish myself because I was having so much fun watching her. She never could get the hookups so I would set the hook and hand her the rod and make sure that I would keep the fish out of the grass for her and do all of the fish handling. Overall it was a good two hours that we spent together and got some really good laughs as well.

Me fighting the first fish deep into the backing...

and probably the funniest part of the day. I was almost in tears laughing so hard. After I convinced her that she would be walking home if she didnt pose for a picture with her first fish, she finally got a hold of the fish and was SCREAMING the entire time....take the picture!!!, take the picture!!!!, take the &$@! picture!!!!!!!!!!! It was priceless.

Hey Matt, better hold onto that girlfriend! It's hard to find one that will brave the tall snakey grass, snapping turtles, and slimey fish!

Give me a call if your up during the week.

Is she:
1) smiling a big toothy grin, or
2) gritting her teeth and cursing you...

My bet is 2.
