We launched an hour-and-a-half before sunrise, so we fumbled around in the dark draggin’ a worm until the sun came up. Even though I know the precise location of every grass clump in the lake, I waited until first light to move to the inside edge.

Two Texas-born rednecks who like gettin’ each other’s goat, I was happier than a puppy with two peckers when I struck first, yankin’ a three-pounder clean out of the veggies. Not wantin’ to get left behind, Todd picked up his senko rod and wrestled a four-pound tub from the weeds. The fish fought hard. It swam under the boat and thumped the hull hard enough to feel the boat shake. I took his picture and complimented him, “That’s a very nice two-pound fish.”

He looked at me sideways and continued fishing senko. I said, “I’m fixin’ to really piss you off.”

He replied, “Wha’cha goan’ do, catch one on weightless fluke?” which is precisely what I did. He said, “I like your fluke technique, how you give fish-catching action to the lure with deadstick and totally slack line.”

I acknowledged his critique with one-finger salute, released the fish and promptly bagged a fun-fish on Texas-rigged craw-worm.

He knocked me right off my high horse by wrestling ANOTHER four-pounder from the grass.

I sized up the fish, “Two-eleven...”

We wound up with ten between the two of us. Off at 10am. Looking forward to next weekend, could actually be fall fishing by then!

I really like how you instigate just enough to get me thinking. We’re not into scale weights or dick measuring. We catch ‘em, wag ‘em under the other guy’s nose while sayin’, “Lookit hee-ar!”, and toss ‘em back. It’s ALL about the bite.

Guilty as charged I reckin. But it is fun. And I agree, it is all about getting out and experiencing the bite. And you definitely know how to do that Jeremy.

When I take the kids or grandkids out we have a running tournament. $1 for the first fish, $1 for the biggest fish and $1 for the most fish. The youngest gets to define "fish" meaning anything that swims or what we are actually fishing for. They do love the game of it and I love getting them outdoors and interested in fishing.

By all means. I am pretty sure I can't patent it anyway. :) Be careful out they define "fish" - once the youngest grandson defined fish so that the minnows he was using for bait counted every time he reeled them back in. That got out of hand real quickly.
