okay i was sitting here thinking about a fishing trip last week i went out to riverbend ponds with a friend we fished for a couple hours and no luck so we walked over to the river i had a crawfish CB on and was just messing around i throw it in and as soon as it hit the water a rainbow killed it this fish must have jumped 5 ft out of the water i haven't seen a trout do this since i was a kid at stagecoach res. by steamboat . it was like slow motion both of us in awe so the fight was on and it was actually a good one i finally get him up to the shore i was about 3 ft from the water i bent down to un hook this beast and he got him self off. iat this point i went crazy trying to wrestle this guy down he was all slime a slipping out of my hand s like a little scared man in a prison shower trying to hold on to the soap. as he got closer to the water i thought i will get a pic. of you and now came the point of no return would i concede defete or go in with him so i did just that i went in head first looking like a lineman trying to scoop up a fumble well in the end he got a way and i got a bath. now looking at it. it reminds me of fishing with my uncle as a kid i dont believe that their was one trip that my uncle didnt chase a big fish into the water with a cigg. in one hand and a fresh made ham sandwich in the other. well thanks for listening and writing this took me 30mins i just couldn't stop luaghing i guess thats one of thoose things u had to be their bu t i am sure others who fish from shore can relate.
