Fishing on the Brain


   I woke up today with a deep desire to go fishing and of course, I have to work. The cause of this desire was the delivery of my new rod and reel. 

It's an Ugly Stick. Not because it's ugly, that is the name brand. As I stare at it, I am daydreaming of being on the boat with Hubby, and the ice chest full of fish. That's why they call it daydreaming. The last fishing trip we took was before the freezing temperatures ran us  
inside for the rest of the winter. It was great spending time together. But I believe the fish were plotting against us.


Hubby, Dad, Son and I headed out to Delacroix, La. We had about the worst luck. Engine problems and a lack of fish make for a rough day. Even Dad, the expert fisherman, had no luck. 

You know it's bad fishing when this is all you get.

   Coming back to the dock empty handed was a blow to our egos. Seeing another boat with an ice chest of speckled trout added insult to injury. 

With that being the last fishing trip, it is time to make up for it. I would love to hear from my readers about their fishing trips. 


  1. Aww man what a bummer you guys didn't catch anything. But hopefully next time!

  2. I have not heard of the Ugly Stick. Thanks for the info.
    I just went Ice Fishing for the first time this year. It was much more enjoyable than i anticipated.

  3. You'll get'um next time!! :) I have many fond memories of going fishing with my dad as a child and memories from working on a tour boat in high school and college! I do not care much for eating fish, but there is something completely wonderful and relaxing about just being out on the boat and enjoying the quiet! :) I am looking forward to this Spring/Summer .... taking our 2 year old daughter on her first boat ride and having my dad teach her to fish with her own little fishing rod. :)

  4. I know that feeling of not getting any fish when going fishing. That has happened to me before. Maybe next time there will be better luck and for your rod and reel, it sure looks nice!

  5. My family used to go fishing every weekend. Fond memories.

  6. If there's one thing we're passionate about it's fishing. Whether it's the river caught salmon from the Pacific northwest, to the bass fishing in little lakes and streams. We love it and are excited to share our love with you.
