August AR Challenge Part 2: Bait Your Own Hook!

 

As avid fisherpeople, we are often in the middle of the lake at the first sign of daylight. One morning while baiting and casting, the boat sprung a leak. Quick thinking kept it from sinking! Taking a tube of super glue used for making lures, I cut the flap off my leather purse, squeezed some glue on it, placed it over the hole. It instantly sealed and we kept right on fishing.

 

As if that wasn't fantastical enough! For the weekend, we took my dad fishing to a favorite spot, Catfish Lake. While reaching to pull a record size,  jumbo, 37-pound whiskerfish into the boat from the murky depths, his top denture fell from his mouth into the water. Thinking it was gone forever, until two days later, when he caught the very fish that had swallowed it!

 

Then, there was the time we chartered a 45-foot tuna boat, ending up in shark infested waters off the coast of Bermuda...Okay, okay, I admit we were never there by sea or sky! Those events didn't happen and my dad doesn't wear dentures but they are amazing fishing lies tales!

 

Bait your own hook

Clean your own fish

And

Tell your own lies tales...

I've got my own stories to share!

 

 

Fishing season is still swimmingly alive here in southern Utah. Our schedules have prevented us form getting to the lake much this year. If fishing is your sport, there are several fishing spots within 30 minutes.

 

As a family, we often spent weekends at the lake or with a large group of people, catching crawdads at the shoreline, anchoring the boat in a hot spot for the day or many evenings spent night fishing on the bank. Some of those memories have become the most cherished.

 

From stories of the elusive ones that got away, to the fight in reeling in a feisty fish, you can bet the lies tall tales will go into the memory banks, then shared with those who appreciate or can top them.

 

Happy Fishing All!

We do enjoy fishing, it is a very relaxing sport until you catch two fish simultaneously on two lines from the same pole, Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty! That really has happened. I do hope you will consider taking part in the challenges, they are a fun for getting to know more about one another.

Something like this could happen in the perfect of circumstances, Kathy Streib. Imagine catching a fish, tagging it and then hooking the same fish almost exactly the same time a year later...that did occur!

Haha! Fishing tales seem to get bigger as they are passed down through the years, George Souto. Some are more believable than others and many will simply leave you scratching your head, wondering...

I love your fish stories! I knew the first one couldn't be true, because who brings a leather purse to fish?

Hmm, it makes me wonder if I were a fisherman, then perhaps I could catch the fish that might have swallowed the blackberry phone that I dropped into the lake when I was out with friends, haha.

We also have a pontoon boat, so it would not be possible, Kat Palmiotti! I do enjoy some far fetching fish stories though.

Had you gone fishing, it may have happened, Brian England. That would be quite the fishing tale!

Wanda, you're a master of creativity and imagination. As I was reading, I started to believe for a few seconds. So, the fish on the ground in the picture, were those fish blown up plastics?

It was a fun fish tale, for sure! LOL!!🙃

Those fish on the grass are real, we all caught our limit at Otter Creek and wanted to take a photo. I added to it and it became a fish market, Aura!

Hi Wanda,
I know you and Michael really are avid fisherpeople, but you certainly proved you can weave a Tall Tale with the best of them.  Happy Fishing!

Hello Carol Williams,

One of my favorite tales is about a blonde woman who goes ice fishing and drills a hole in the ice and someone tells her, "Hey, there are no fish there.", so she drills another one and the same person, says, "There are no fish there either." Again, she drills another hole with the same results.

Ends up, she is in an ice rink!
