  6. Him: Nice fish, where’d you catch him? Me:In the water! Him:What did you catch him on? Me: Experience!😁 Sorry I couldn’t answer your call I was on the other line. Reely? Lol Here’s my fish story. I am 51 now and a tangle waiting to happen, but have loved fishing all my life. I get REALLY excited EVERY time I get a bite and sometimes when other people do lol. Any way was fishing in the local river with a friend of mine. Got a bite and when I went to set my hook the excitement got the best of me and I jerked a little too hard I think. The fish came out of the water and flew between us and landed up on the bank about 50 feet behind us! We both looked at each other and I said what was that. He said idk I think it was a blue gill couldn’t tell for sure it went by doing about 60(mph) I think you ripped it’s lips of it’s face. Lol Walked the 50 ft up to see and it was in fact a bluegill. It was only about 4 inches long tho. It’s lips were still attached luckily and I unhooked it and released it. Took him a minute to swim away, think he may have had a slight concussion. He shook it off a little and swam away. Probably off to tell his friends how he could fly I’m guessing. Haha TRUE STORY I have tried to calm down a little since then and have gotten better. Haven’t sent anything rocketing by since then. I can’t help it! Excitement and adrenalin kick in every single time I can control it better now that I’m older. I did have to go to shore once last summer and get out of the boat for a bit. The water was a little choppy. We were catching tons of bluegill one right after the other and they were huge… Slabbers bigger than my hand. Idk if it was the excitement or the boat rocking or a little of both but I got a little light headed and felt a little funny. I had to take a break fishfoggy for a few I think. Lol Have a fabulous day everyone! Loved all the jokes and comments!
