Just a little space monkeying around..

Recommended Posts

Got up at 3am yesterday morning and just could not get fishing off my mind. By 4:30 am I was whispering in Matts ear about fishing... A few hours later Matt was up and around and I had the kids off to school already so we headed out to fish a new spot that we have not fished yet. It was rainy and overcast, the wind was a force to be reckoned with as well but I was determined to go fishing. We found a spot that we could back the trailer down to and went as far as we could before taking the boat off and dragging it another 50 yards or so till we reached the water.

Found the water temps to be in the 60's...  ;D  I could not find any real structure in this lake which I thought for sure the fish would be hanging tight to given the weather. It was either that or we would be peeling them off the bottom. Decided to hit the pads and since it was the only "different thing" in this place for the fish to relate too. Hooked up a space monkey behind a splitshot in the junebug color. I never have fished this color very much before but thought with I might do pretty well with it given the weather conditions.

Lets just say we did very well with it but our day started off to be one of those days where we just could not get a fish all the way to the boat. So at that point I decided to place a little bet with the husband on who was gonna bring the first fish to the boat. Let's just say I had to win this bet.  ;D  Next cast out I had one on and man I set the hook like I have never set the hook before.  ;D  In the process of doing this I ended up smacking my husband upside the head with the tip of my rod and to my own surprise instead of apologizing I was surprised at the next words that came out of my mouth.... I said " Hun get the heck out of the way and sit down in the boat like your supposed to because I've got a fish on!"  :o  I just can't believe I said that I don't know where it came from but I think he was as shocked as I was because I thought he was gonna fall out of the boat he was laughing so hard. Apparently competition is not a good thing for everyone.

This is the first fish that broke the skunk and honey I am so sorry for what I said.  :-[  This fish also hooked me back and I found that the fish hooks go in much easier than they come out. OUCH!

After I got a hold of myself and Matt stopped laughing it was not long and I had another one on the line and this time it was not a bass but a crappie. I love catching these fish, they are so cool looking.

Just a few seconds after that crappie Matt had his first one on and it was crappie bigger than mine.

We then moved down to another section of the lake and were tossing the spacemonkey around there the edges of the pads and Matt landed a few bass too.

I then landed the biggest catch of all.. myself..   :-[

Eventually after that last catch I caught a few more too..

Well after all that we were out of time and had to leave but I am gonna be heading back to this place for a little more exploring as soon as I can.  ;D

Hope you all have been fishing!

Hey Brian, that's why he's wearin' that hood.....a mans gotta protect himself when there's a rod slingin', hook settin', fish slappin' little gal in the boat.

And it don't hurt matters at all when she decides that she wants to do the dancin'.....A real man will just sit back "And enjoy the Show".

And that's exactly what Matt did.... ;D

You guys are terrific, and if all couples fished together like you two...Our world would be a much better place. Congratulations to both of you
