Just Another Fish Story

Look for another blog post to follow shortly on a “deeper” lesson or two learned from my very first fishing trip.  For now, I offer these:

  1. Spending a day fishing with a good friend is a very good thing.
  2. Fish spray poop whenever you pull the hook out of their mouths.  Be careful where you aim their…tails.
  3. Porpoises are the “cows” of the saltwater “pasture” in the bays of South Louisiana.
  4. It’s a good idea to have a strap or cord on your sunglasses out there on the high-speed fishing boat.
  5. Speckled trout truly are beautiful creatures.
  6. Speckled trout smell far better cooked than they do in the cooler on the boat.
  7. If you are going to reel in a big fish (like a redfish), you better have the right equipment and ability.
  8. If you don’t have the right equipment and ability, be in the boat with someone who does.
  9. Don’t judge people by their diplomas and degrees.  Education and wisdom come in many forms.
  10. Sunblock is your friend.  So is the guy who reminds you to reapply a couple of times on a long day.
  11. There is a time to wait, and a time to act;  a time to fish, and a time to move on; a time to persist, and time to switch bait; a time to observe, and a time to engage; a time to laugh, and a time to mourn; a time to sit, and a time to stand up and hold on (that last bit left me feeling like a rodeo bull-rider in training!); a time to answer the cell phone, and a time to ignore it.
