Are there some things that you try real hard at but just continue to suck? Do you ever think so much of yourself that you feel you can master everything you attempt?
Being a NC Realtor at the coast in Holden Beach, NC has it's advantages. Some days you get to go and show a beautiful oceanfront beach home. For lunch, I can grab a sandwich, a lawn chair and go sit on the beach with my iPod. It's a great way to clear your head. Every now and then, I get invited for an afternoon of fishing. There was a quote I once heard,
"Even a fish could stay out of trouble if it would just learn to keep its mouth shut".
It took me a while but I finally understand the quote. I used to tell people that I was a fisherman. I actually used to believe it when I heard myself say those words. It only takes one afternoon of fishing with me and you will realize that I suck when it comes to fishing.
Imagine this... You get invited to got out for an afternoon with a Pro Fishing Guide. You accept the invitation with a warning that you are a horrible fisherman because you feel other people have a right to know. It's sort of like I should come with my own warning sticker. This Pro Guide took me to places where it looked like the fish would jump into your boat by themselves while you get a tan. He took me to his double top secret fishing holes that looked like front covers of Saltwater Fishing magazine. I was simply amazed that these places existed on our beautiful Carolina Coast. At one point, my guide was able to anchor up to a spot that he has never been able to anchor to in all his days of fishing due to the strong currents that were always present. He got excited like a small child on this day and told me to get ready, things were about to heat up because we were now at a once forbidden spot he had longed to fish from for as long as he could remember.
The only anchor my guide carried on his boat that day was me. Nothing. Zero. Nada. No fish that day. I actually thought I had a few bites that day because I am an optimist. I still believe that I had a few bites. No way it was snags on the bottom.
We are talking the ocean here. There are fish in the ocean aren't there? I know there are because I go to seafood restaurants on a regular basis and they have fish. Where did they come from?
The National Center for Fisherman Who Suck report that 9 out of 10 people who go fishing, accidentally catch at least one fish per outing. So much for those statistics. I guess they forgot to interview me or I am the guy at the #10 spot.
I own my own boat. I have enough fishing gear that Bass Pro shop would be envious of. I can talk the talk with anyone. I can take you to secluded fishing holes where I have seen other fishermen catch fish. I can throw cast nets and rig your line like a pro does. I can dazzle you with my knowledge of tides and currents and fishing habitats. I may never master the hook and line but I doubt that I will ever quit trying. The sun can go down on my day of fishing but tomorrow is a new day.
