Try, try again.
That’s our motto for fishing. Sometimes we go fishing but no catching. Like when the boys went last week. When they went looking for the bait boat, it wasn’t there. So they used lures and Terry was the only one to catch a trout.
But this week, there was the bait boat right where it should be!
I caught a dogfish right away. Which was amazing because I usually just feed the fish. Got no skill at that fishing stuff. Back he went into the water.
Then Cap’n Terry caught a little trout which went back in and was followed by Riley catching a big one. Holy Flip! (One of Riley’s favorite phrases which I intend to use on a regular basis in the future.)
Terry caught another trout that we could keep and then the real catching started.
This shark snapped Riley’s fishing pole in half!
And it was followed up by both Terry and I immediately getting two more sharks on our lines. Cut the lines and we were outta there.
While we only had enough trout for Riley’s dinner, he had a tale to tell. And for this North Dakota boy, that was way better than fishing!
