The Rooster and the Bass Fisherman

A disagreeable rooster receives an unexpected surprise from a bass fisherman.

I only remember one time that my dad took us fishing, and that was more a picnic by the river than anything else.

My husband, however, went fishing all the time as a child, so after we were married, I quickly learned to enjoy throwing a worm in the river and relaxing while waiting for a nibble.

After he retired, my husband and his buddy often went jug fishing for catfish at a nearby lake. I didn’t consider that fishing, but they did, and they brought home results for the dinner table and the freezer.

Fishermen tradition continues

When our 7-year-old grandson, Grant, was visiting, he wanted to go fishing, too. He had the time of his life pulling in catfish, as well as a big carp.
