Fishing With The Man!

Recommended Posts

Well a few days ago one of the most important men in my life asked me if I would take him fishing. I was shocked because his health hasn't been the greatest for a few years, but I was more than ready, excited to take him out. If it wasn't for my Grandfather I would have probably never got into the great sport of Bass fishing. He introduced my father and then my Father introduced me to it. I remember being a young kid, teenager and one year after I got out of the service spending numerous hours on the water with my father and Grandfather. I always loved hearing his old fishing stories from the mid 50's and on. In fact one of the main reason my Grandfather took the family and moved from New Jersey to Maine was because of the outstanding bass fishing.

My Grandfather hasn't fished since 2003 and I never believed that I would ever get the chance to fish with him again! Well I got that chance and it was awesome! We didn't catch any monsters and we only caught about a dozen bass that day but it was my best day on the water in years. I love that man and I cherish every moment I get with him. I took him to his favorite lake and it was just he and I and the whole lake to ourselves. It brought back many memories for him and he said that he never thought he would see that lake again and he said that he was very happy that I took him. The best part was the next day when he told me that he never got sore from the day of fishing and that he would like to go again soon. I told him you just let me know when your ready! ;) Just wish that I took more pictures!! :( He isn't that photogenic, he said "what do you think I'm going to die soon or something?" He's a jokester. :rolleyes:

THE KID!!

The following day I went solo on one of my other favorite lakes and had a great mixed bag day! The jig and rage craw was the ticket!

VIVA LA MIGRA!!! (Tell the old BP man that, he'll understand).

Good for you guys. Cherish those moments. The last time I went fishing with my pop was 1999, and that was the last time I will ever get the chance to.

I'm so happy for you man, that's wonderful! My grandpa died before I was 3, but I know my passion comes from him and my grandma. I've got pictures of him holding a largemouth in 1939!

Thanks for the kind comments. It wasn't easy getting him in and out of the boat but it was worth it. Just waiting for the next day of good weather.
