You go fishing! It was hot Saturday afternoon at the lease! Hunting was slow anyway, so we went fishing. My brother, my son and I started fishing mid day. My son had 3 rods in the water rigged with shrimp and chicken livers, and was frequently catching catfish. We were sitting in the shade in our lawn chairs drinking a cold beer with a slight breeze coming in off our small lake. (I thought about the Hank Williams Jr. song , Country State of Mind.) My son broke off a catfish, so I tied on a top water to see what the small pops were all about I was seeing. Within a few casts, I tied on to this bugger. He was easy 5 lb + bass. We now have huge motivation to get a little boat and fish all over the 50 acre lake we have. It was awesome!

Nope! He got tossed back to be caught another day. The catfish however, next time will be put on a stringer and filleted. We are already talking about a fish fry out there.

Chester, that's my first Large Mouth out of that lake. I will be doing more! We are about to buy a boat for the lake also.

I hunt deer. You never know if the deer are moving or when they will start moving if you are doing something else.

No. It's a private lake on our deer lease.
