I wanted to share a fishing tale with you. It’s about our Mark’s brother’s fishing experience the other day and it made me smile. I’m hoping it will make you smile too. Mark’s Dad wrote it.
Well it appears that either Michael is just plain Lucky — or as I would like to believe — has his big brother was “guiding him” to fishing success.
The attached picture was taken on Friday afternoon – on the Lake Superior bay – at the end of Park Point at around 2 PM.
Mike had barely put his buckshot jig (from Mark’s collecton) down the hole and within a few minutes he described feeling a thunk on his jig.
After a Chinese fire drill of untangling the line from the vexilar (Marks) and getting the fish onto the ice and then having to remove the other 3 lines wrapped around the fish — he and his friend Steve – were then able to take this picture. He also said that as the fish was still on the ice – the reel AND the handle fell off the rod. Now if there isn’t some divine intervention going on here -I don’t how else to explain it all.
Regardless – after Mike and Steve released the fish – and they stopped laughing outloud over what had just happened– the moment was reagarded as “priceless”
Mike said he and Steve had to peel off 100 yards of line and re rig everything – as well as fix the rod and reel. The fish was approx. 26″-28″ Mikes largest thru the ice.
PS – that was the only fish they caught for the rest of the day (Mark must have been busy or in a hurry and did’nt have time to stick around) LOL
Anyway thought you might enjoy the story – as you would get much more condensed version if you talked to Mike.
