    It was one of my favorite days ever.  The weather was perfect.  The water was smooth.  My husband and I had all the gear we needed and he threw a net to catch our bait and we had plenty, plus the fish were biting! When the fish weren't biting, I took...

    I used to go spear fishing

    as a kid with my mates down at the local beach and rocks. We would snorkel around for hours spearing bream, leather jacket and mullet during the day.At night we would bring the torches and would spot and spear flounder and flathead on a low tide.Good times they were.

    I just absolutely love sitting by the water,

    relaxing, while I fish. It is just such a great experience even if I don't catch anything. I actually prefer fishing alone but I have to say it was so much fun when the woman I loved joined me before she left me. All the women I dated she was the only one I loved bringing along...

    I thought I'd mention what I'm getting

    for Valentine's Day. He said we can go get our fishing licenses tomorrow. He said he thought it was kind of a weird gift for Valentine's Day. I told him I like it being different and anyone who goes fishing would probably see the value in it.

    I'm about to buy a boat.

    I love Inshore/Bass fishing the most. I'd like to get a Ranger Intercoastal so I can do both. Bass, Snook and Red fishing is where it's at.

    Fly fishing at the farm,

    I could spend hours and hours doing this, its so relaxing an quiet. Only two issues - its hard to drink a beer while casting, and I generally catch nothing (which isnt really a problem but it would be nice to have something to show for it)

    Me and my daughter went fishing today.

    I caught three catfish and she caught her very first fish. She thought it was a snag at first. Her fish ended up being the biggest. She was very happy. Im glad I got to see her catch it. I wouldnt trade that moment for anything.
