    A Fish Tale Though The Eyes Of A Penn 12/0 Reel

    The night is calm, a slight ripple on the water, the tide is going out what a perfect time to fish. I am chained to the bridge nestled with my companion rod, waiting as I am being prepared. The mullet is split, the 6" hook is embedded and sewn back up. A balloon is blown up and a...

    Famous Quote I heard.

    " who said Life is Fair" If it was I'd be getting paid to fish five days a week and only work two. I sure do like to fish, it's a relaxing hobby, full of surprises

    I enjoy fishing, it gives me a chance to be quiet and with nature.  I like being able to relax and wait for the fish to bite.  I don't use lures, I  use cheese hotdogs and worms.

    I have lived on the great lakes

    for most of my adult life. Fishing is a natural thing to do, and often the only way to get a really satisfying fish dinner. One of my favorite ways to fish is through the ice in the winter. We put a nice shanty up on the ice, create a large square hole in the middle. The...

    I only went fishing once.

    It was fun. I was 12 years old. I went with 2 of my friends and they're parents. The girls was twins. It was soooo fun. The father only took me once because my mother wouldn't let me go anymore. She found out the father had major problems. His wife even left him because of it...

    Pixy and I love to fish!

    I still can't touch the creepy things, but I seem to be good at catching them. Don't worry dears, we throw them back. We don't want to kill them. We just like to hook them through the face and look at them. Hrm. I guess that makes us fish sadists. If fish could scream, I would...

    Its both calming and emotional

    for me. Growing up my grandpa and uncles took me fishing. I remember how calming it was but now it also reminds me three of the four of them are now gone. I never used worms I always used corn mush (or what ever its called). I refused to touch the fish though they were slimy...

    Fly Fishing

    I am never more content than when I am waist deep in a cold trout stream. It's my favorite hobby and I would never give it up, rather die. Hope I can teach someone how to fly fish someday.

    Look at the size of this porcupine fish.

    .. He was the size of a tissue box. He is a blow fish. Put him in the water & he floated.
