Hey Fellers
« on: January 17, 2017, 01:33:49 AM »
For the first time since my eye surgery, I got to go fishing. They stocked trout over at Meridian and my Wife, Mom and I drove over to try our luck. They put 2009 trout in. Guess how many trout I got? A big fat 0! My wife did though. She got 1.

Now that being said, I didn't get skunked. I tore the sunfish up! They were hitting me like crazy. I'm having a hard time fishing because I have always fished straight down and watched my line. I can't see the line move anymore. Luckily, I was able to feel some of them hit, but I lost some too due to not being able to set the hook quick enough.

I cann't tell you guys how much fun it was being on the dock talking with other fishermen. It's been so long! Lots of fishermen and fisher women were there. It was my first time to try my hand at stocked trout. I had my Zebco 38 that's about 25 years old, a can of corn and a pack of #6 hooks. What a great time it was! I've never fished with corn before, but I was told it's good trout bait. Maybe, Maybe not, but the sunfishes loved it!!!

WTG!  Not to worry, my wife, when she does go, usually out fishes me.

My wife has a similar problem.  Her hand shakes so much that she has trouble setting the hook now unless the fish swallows the bait.  I have bought some of these to see if they will help with the problem.

Unfortunately she hasn't been able to fish since I bought them so I don't know how well they will work yet.

But just being out there fishing is what counts.  Catching is just a bonus.

We went again today. I sure was hoping to catch some trout, but sunfish was hitting so that's what we caught. Mom even got her a nice one.

I've been teasing the wife tonight cause she got skunked. She usually always puts me to shame.

They were real slow today. Along about sundown they started to bite, but it was a long way home, plus we were hungry so we left. Maybe try again tomorrow
