She still want's to fish w/ me though.

Recommended Posts

Yo .. so .. last Friday I couldn't wait to get off work to go fish w/ my gf. I got her into her, she loves it now. I go almost everyday after work for ~4hrs. Off at 2pm, on water at ~330 til 7 or til I just get tired, sometimes I just go for 2hrs cause I just want to cast, its not always about catching fish - I just love to be on the water. Catching fish is cool when it happens.

Anyway.. she goes to Cabelas, buys me the 3 crankbaits I asked her to get earlier in the day.

Comes over, pack up, now were on the water.. THIS IS WHERE THINGS GO SOUTH.

We go to our fav spot, LITERALLY ON MY FIRST CAST..

 

I noticed the bait never made it out and I hear, "ouch, WAIT!", so I panick, realize the crank is stuck to her yoga pants, I'm like "oh crap, can you pull it out?" shes like, "um, its not moving", i say, "omg did it go in?!" and it sure did.. right in the side of her thigh.

I panick a little, cut a small circle around the 1 treble hook thats hooked into her top layer of skin and try to get it out, no luck without hurting her.

 

so. shes tough. shes a girly girl. i didnt expect her to be that tough, she was actually more ticked off we werent on the water for more than 5 minutes and now have to go to Patient First to get it out.. which took like ~2hrs.. went home and all is fine.

 

I felt like an Ahole, she didnt care, she understood....

 

happen to anyone else?

That's about the worst possible thing that could happen, so you better just go ahead and marry her now. 

 

Young hot shot dude pulled up to the ramp in a big fancy Nitro that looked brand spankin' new. His little trophy blonde hopped out beside him and you could tell they were already annoyed at each other (Not good). He was kinda talking to her like she was an idiot which made me feel bad for her. He backed the boat in and told her don't touch anything, just stand there and hold the rope and don't move until he gets back. She's like ok whatever with an eye roll. I noticed the boat didn't look right. The transom started going deeper and deeper. After a few minutes when the dude got back he started yelling at her WHAT DID YOU DO....... She said NOTHING YOU HORSES ASS I HELD THE ROPE. Homeboy for got to put the plug in. She walked right to the truck and got in. He loaded up and off they went. I guess that was the end of their fishing trips. I laughed about that for weeks.

omg haha .. dude, I check my plug when I get there and load up my stuff, and again when i get to the water before I dump.. im so paranoid about sinking, i think its cause drowning is a major fear of mine, i have top notch life vests but still, lol

 

she was in good spirits, my gf is a hottie, the people at patient first feasted their eyes lol ... shes got a round booty and some D's, so.. when she was standing in there in moving around it was funny. nice little scar now where the hook was.. I feel bad but she doesn't care, just a little sore.

You need to learn the hook removal technique with line.  Saved many a day on the water!!  I've seen hooks pulled out of the tops of heads all the way down to feet.  It works!!

Doesn't matter, any line will work.  Heaver test is better but you can double or triple it up on the lighter tests and it works fine.  Had to learn it being 17 miles from shore on Lake St Clair every year and if you bury a treble, it's a long way to a medical facility.  We rent a cottage on an island.

For real, knowing the string trick and getting that hook out right then and there with no pain and not having to go to get it removed at a medical facility would have completely impressed her.

This forum is such a hilarious anomaly. If you said that ANYWHERE ELSE on the internet people would be demanding pics :lol:

hahaha, you guys are a trip.

ill post a pic of her booty maybe haha

thanks for the video! totally wouldve impressed her but after 4 years and some change, im the one who needs

some impressing haha jk!

maybe i should buy her a Daiwa JDM Reel with a GLoomis reel to make it up to her but keep it on my boat? :P

so, ill post a pic when i get home of the hook, it was in a little further and you could see the point poking the skin just to the side of it, idk if that would work really after watching it a few times.

when the Dr cut it, she had to wiggle it around a little to get it out

2 things, first, as soon as the fall bite slows you're going ring shopping, second, and this is for everyone, do not hook other people! There is no excuse. Being aware of the arc your lure makes will not only be much safer, it will make you a better angler. Ideally your fishing partner (much like tennis) will be opposite handed, that will allow more space, and less interference when casting. But even with two righties or lefties, still no excuse. Also why you always want to wear eyewear, no coming back from that one. If you have civilians on the boat, the safest place for him/her is right next to you on your non casting side. Be safe, and a picture of the torn yoga pants would be nice... :)

Maybe it hasn't dawned on you yet, but even though you didn't get a bite I think you found a keeper. 

 

Good ones are far and few between. You may not want her to be the one that got away.

I've never hooked my wife, but my BIL hooked his wife (my wife's little sister), in the top of her head on the backcast. She didn't take it as well as your GF did.

Never have hooked my gf/wife of 44 years.  All I remember is every time I took her fishing it seemed to rain.  (she did not like this)  Last time so hard you could hardly see your hand in front of your face.  So......basically she doesn't fish any more.  But...she loves golf like I do fishing....so I golf (try) with her.

Life is good

This past August hooked wive in finger joint fly fishing, after removing it swelled up like a big pea for 30 minutes then went to normal, she was ticked.....I still think not smart to walk behind someone casting.

 

Years ago hooked daughter when she was 8 in head, she still tells people about this....:)

haha, love the stories.

 

really no excuse, I made a poor judgement and didn't reposition my body as i repositioned the boat..

so, me and her tossed our lines out to clear the spool, hers went out further than mine, so i told her im going to turn the boat so we can drift down shore while she reels in..

but...i never turned my body with the boat, so my next cast was so close to her...clearly.

I f'd up. I own'd it. I was REALLY shocked how well she took it, she was honestly ticked we had to leave lol

she says its sore but healing well.

 

she'll be getting a ring soon. she loves fishing, were going this weekend lol GOD BE WITH US !!! she's a little nervous rightfully so lol

i'm a 7 handicap golfer actually, but she sucks at golf and golf is MUUUUUUUUUUCH harder than fishing. I went last night and put a really nice bag together, almost 10lbs.. this was the biggest.

excuse my cheese smile, my @55 got a little too excited and needs to calm right down.

I've only hooked myself once, and that was by doing something stupid. I'm not sure if I've told this story on the forums before, so bear with me. So I had just bought myself my first whopper plopper and started fishing it around the little brush piles in my neighborhood pond. Wham! Huge blowup, and I reeled in my biggest out of that pond, about four pounds. I thought it'd be a great idea to try to unhook this fish, which is still going crazy, with my bare fingers. I get the first treble hook out, and then all of the sudden I'm hooked to this big fish. By the way, it's got one of those bad hooksets where it closes their mouth. After getting the fish off, I walk home with this lure hanging off one of my fingers. Let me tell you, I got some weird looks from passing joggers! I ended up cutting the hook and pulling it out. Since then, I carry pliers and ALWAYS use them on fish caught with treble hooks. Funny thing is, it wasn't even that deep!

Pics or it never happened! (Sorry, somebody had to do it) Really, though, good deal. You have found a rare quality in someone who sounds like a very special lady, I'm very happy for you

Believe me the immature 16 year old part of my 52 year old brain wanted to type, "Pics or I don't believe it" about the GF being a hottie comment.

 

Seriously though, I have never hooked anyone other than myself and it was minor. I would feel real bad if I did.
