The day was so bright and still I despaired of hooking one. So laying aside the heavy tackle, I put on a tiny copper trout spoon and began to cast in towards the shore for bass. They were dour and would not rise. I fished the likely spots for half an hour and then dropped back in the rear seat to rest. The little spoon trailed out some eighteen feet behind the boat.
If I could pick where I would want to go back for a day I would have no problem deciding. It would be the Dominican Republic because I miss the crystal clear water and sun beating down on on me. What I miss the most is snorkeling in the water and seeing all the different kinds of fish. There were several ugly and pretty fish. My dad, mom and sister went there for our Christmas in 2014.
After I couldn’t find one, my father had to ask a store worker where to find a small tank for a baby turtle, but the store worker gave us very surprising information. According to the worker, baby turtles carry potent amounts of salmonella, which can easily be given to humans. In fact, less than 4-inch turtles are so dangerous that it is illegal to sell them in the United States. After I got home, I shared the news with my sisters and they were devastated that we had to loose such a great pet.
I was astonished, my own dad told me I have to fetch a pole in a lake that is infested with fish. I almost went to the restroom right there on the spot. The day grew on and I was on the dock pacing back and forth asking myself if I should go in or not. At 12:30 my dad and my family were about to leave for lunch when I dove into the infested water and pulled out my pole from the depths of the
Thirty-seven year old Salvador Alvarenga, a fisherman living and working in Mexico, loved his 25-foot long canoe shaped boat. On November 18, 2012, he planned to be with it in the deep, tranquilizing waters of the Pacific Ocean. He had nothing holding him back, his daughter lived in El Salvador with her mother. Ezequiel Córdoba, Alvarenga’s 22-year old crewman, and Alvarenga loaded the boat with thousands of pounds of equipment that would soon be filled with a variety of seafood. He had known there was a storm coming, but he refused to pass up possible catch no matter the danger.
“Alaskan Amber night, Alaskan Amber night boy” he said, rocking back and forth grinning; his dead eye floating aimlessly as if it were looking out the side of the boats starboard window, off into the distance. It was a late Saturday night and Eddie was excited that our boat was heading inland. The stress of not working on a fishing boat was bad, and getting obliterated via draft beer and dope sounded like a good way to forget about my drama back home. Later that evening, each of us seven beers deep, Eddie and I sat outside of the Pit Bar. “I need that head like a dike, she got that head that I like”, Eddie said to me with a subtle smirk, motioning to
So, my dad created this tunnel for the fish to swim through. Too bad, so sad for the fat fish. It died right after the next day. I was kind of sad, but my dad bought another fish for me with a filter because my dad surely gained tiredness cleaning up a whole lot of poop and refiltering the water manually. Everyday the fish had pooped at least 5 times and we needed to replace the sponge every single night.
No big deal, we moved down and found a new site…the next week houses started to go up and the fish did not seem to be as hungry. Eventually the canal smelled as the fish were dying off and floating quite eerily in the water—that was the end of my summer fishing with my dad. As irony would have it, the next month, we got new neighbors who moved from a little town in New York
I believe that bass fishing is the best thing that a person can do for their health. Bass fishing can help a person vent their feelings. For example when ever my grandmother died all i wanted to do was to get out on the water and catch a fish. So with my wishes we went to the lake and went fishing and when ever i heard the mercury crank everything was better and when ever i we got the boat on a plane running about 70 down the lake it made everything a whole lot better.
I was in Lake Michigan and it was a Friday in April. I was on at my house with my friend i asked him if he was ready to go on the boat to go fishing and he said “ready”. So we went to the boat it was about an hour drive then we finally got to the boat. We went fishing for 20 minutes and caught nothing
The Northwest Coast Indians are believed to have begun living on the west coast area of what we now know as Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, California, and British Columbia, Canada over 10,000 years ago. The Bella Coola, Haida, Nootka, and Tlingit are just a few of the tribes that make up the Northwest Coast Indians who were known as the richest Native American’s due to the large quantity of natural resources that were available to them in this region. Living along the coast, there was so much fish available for them to eat. They enjoyed such fish as salmon, halibut and cod.
