Spring means that everyone, young and old, can take advantage of lake fishing. You will find many pieces of good fishing advise on our website including our own Fishing Calendar for best days and times. There is something special about catching “the big one.”
Last week, a friend and his son, Luke, went out for a quick fish one evening and pulled in a 20” wide mouth bass. With waters still ice cold here, I am told that bass are particularly active. This was a catch and release, so Luke can get him again when he is 22” or larger.
Luke also plays hockey. So, I asked the obvious question: “If you could be the greatest hockey player of all time or the greatest fisherman, which would you choose?” Without hesitation, he said, “A fisherman, of course.” Smart boy.
If your children or grandchildren catch a nice fish, send the photo to us via our Facebook or Twitter pages. Tell us a whopper – share what state and lake, and any other specifics you feel comfortable divulging. Bragging goes with the sport!
