  1. Up early because of the long day at work tomorrow ...

    I don't think that there are any limitations on weeds but I'm pretty sure this one got thrown back anyway!

  7. This was the last day of a 3 day trip to Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. The day before, Saturday, Bruce and I fished from 4:30 in the AM until 9:00 pm. This was a small cove off the main lake. We were just trolling along and not having much luck when I felt a tug on my line. I set the hook and nearly took Bruce out with the weed. He always picked on me for bring up the "salad" so he took a picture of the "big one". Of course what he didn't take a picture of was the 5lb Smallie I caught the day before. I can not wait to go back up this summer. This year we are going a little earlier and hope to catch the bass pre-spawn.

  8. Thanks for the background, Andrew. And I think it's a great weed no matter what anyone says! I hope to have one of my own someday if you actually do teach me how to fish.

  9. Claire as I have tried to explain to many others, there is something almost Zen-like about fishing. Most people think it is a worm a hook and off you go. Nothing could be farther from the truth. There is weather conditions, water color and temp, moon phase, feeding activity, and then you have to choose the proper lure and present it so the fish will be attracted to it.

    Anyway the Zen part is being on a calm, still lake with the sun coming up and the birds singing in the trees along the shoreline. The night scavengers hurrying back to thier lares for a days sleep. All of the tension just leaves your body.

    Then all the planning you have put into it pays off and WHAM-O the line goes taunt, the rodtip bends and now the good part, the fight. There is nothing on this earth quit the same as fighting a fish for 5-10 minutes and then swinging it over the side of the boat and "lipping" it. You look at it and often wonder if anyone has caught this fish before or are you the first one. We strictly do catch and release, so the fish is returned back to the water as safely as possible so that others may enjoy the same thrill I just ecxperianced.

    Did I answer you question Claire?

  10. Now, that looks exactly like what I'd pull out. Actually, this reminds me of the thrill of catching something when I was girl!

  11. Wow! What an answer but no you haven't! is it fun? (i am jesting!).
    I think i would get bored, if i could do a hike and then come back and do the fishing?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sorry if that ruined your zen moment!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Not to worry, Claire, I'm sure he'll be fine! And he promised to take me fishing this summer so that maybe I can learn some "Zen". I figure I'll be lucky if I can catch a weed!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think its something you have to try before you can really appreciate it, with surroundings like that i think you probably could feel very zen like!

  15. I may have you beat. While fishing with my father and brother in the GA Mountains, I caught a mattress spring in the Chattahoochee River. Haven't had much more luck with my father-in-law on the Indian River Lagoon in FL

  16. Still looks like a beautiful day.

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a beautiful day, looks so relaxing. It is a pity I don't fish :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Now there's a catch, lol. What a beautiful place to fish.

    ReplyDelete
  19. That's true for fishing you have to be wordless, otherwise there would be no fish anymore. But the above comment about being zen while fishing, I don't understand, you can be zen by starring in the water without killing a poor fish !

  20. What a happy picture

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jo, that IS a big one. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Never been fishing...poor me

    ReplyDelete
  23. Weed or not, that makes me want to go fishing. I am SO ready for spring! Happy WW.

  24. Gattina - In Andrew's defense, he doesn't kill the fish - he gives them a kiss and releases them back into the water. I think the "kiss" thing is all part of it as I've seen them do it at tournaments also.

  25. It looks so peaceful there :) bliss, I think. Such a lovely picture for wordless wednesday.

  26. One of the first thing I learned as a young boy when fishing with my dad and grandpa, was to keep quiete. Thus, this is a great WW entry
