Fireworks and a Fishing Tale

Funny things can happen while you’re fishing, and sometimes things aren’t actually funny until long after the incident.  Today we celebrate our independence on this 4th of July, and we want to show appreciation for fishing by sharing a fishing story by an angler who is only laughing about this because it didn’t happen to him!

My grandpa always left his rod and reels in his boat because he’d fish just about every day. My 2 cousins climbed into his boat one day while he was at work. One would cast the line into the yard and the other would free it when it would get hung up in the grass. The youngest was waiting for his brother to free the plug and as soon as he did, he set the hook!!  Caught him in the nose with a treble hook. To make it worse, he reeled him in all the way to the boat. Fighting him as you would a bass. This is only funny because it didn’t happen to me.
