Fishing trip

Had a blast fishing. My first trip. My friend Vincent, a hand surgeon from home, took us out to the Mississippi (it was more like a lake, really. > 2km wide) for a fishing expedition. He's kinda hardcore; his philosophy is, he's only here for a couple of years, so might as well do it before he returns. So he bought a truck and a boat. Invited ET and I for a trip, since he knew we had never done it before.

This was his boat's GPS system. Comes in useful especially on longer fishing trips.... like on Lake Michigan, where it kinda looks/feels like the ocean cos you can't see land at the end of the horizon. The cool thing was this had an attached sonar... so you could pick out areas with schools of fish.

Unfortunately, there was no such thing as beginner's luck for us. After 7 hours of fishing and being burnt to a crisp under the sweltering sun, all we caught was a 4 inch fish. Which we used as bait. All the while, the other fishes were taunting us; there were numerous 2 foot fishes that were leaping out of the water. None into our boat, however. Was tempted to pick up a large bass at the local grocery store, just so I could tell people I caught something. Bah!

At least we had fun. And I'm no longer a fishing virgin.

What?? Man.. now only you go fishing? Sheesh.. city folk *grin*

I started fishing when I was err umm.. 10 years old. *grin*

But never got 2 footers.. probably tilapia's, catfish etc..

For all the technology and stuff.. wasted man.. you should've put beer cans and hot dogs as bait.. maybe you'd have more chances to catch the fish.. *grin*
