Yeah & it's a beauty, too. I'm a catch & release sort of guy; I hope you are, too!
Oh, definitely! This one (and the 3 others we caught that night) were quickly unhooked and gently returned to the lake.
Wot, no fish supper?
Well done. Is that for eating or is it lucky enough to be released? x
Ew! Eat? LOL No, this and ANY fish we catch (or the snapping turtle and freshwater clam I've managed to snag) are returned to their lake homes.
I do not get the allure of fishing, but since I am not there, doesn't matter. Yay for the first snag (and release). Good job!
Well, I love being out on the water...the loons...the breeze...the lapping of waves...just meandering around in a boat, motor or paddle-powered. I spent a lot of time taking photos while we're fishing...and I also catch one here or there sometimes. But it's our time together, to talk, to picnic, to laugh, that's a blessing.
