I was actually talking about this at the Thanksgiving table with my sisters just the other day while we were reminiscing about my Dad the avid hunter/fisherman, my very first hard learned fishing lesson went like this. Toungue

I couldn't have been more than 8, my Dad took me fishing off the piers in SHB for the first time (he finally got tired of hearing me whine at the top of my lungs every time he walked in the door with his fishing pole and tackle box I WANT TO GO FISHING!!!!!! Actually I think my mother said something along the lines of "take her fishing before I have to put her out of her misery", lol I was a good whiner, still am actually lol, ). So we go to the bait store (I remember this like it was yesterday ), and my Dad gets me this giant clam, and the guy behind the counter cut it all up in little bite size pieces (don't ask me what we were fishing for I have no idea lol), we went across the street onto a pier, and my Dad said to me "don't take your eyes off that clam the birds will get it "Ok Dad!! So of course I turned my back on the clam (after the nice man at the bait store cut it all up for me he handed it to me on the half shell and when we got on the dock i put it on the ground) and started talking to some kid,,my Dad was talking to some guy while rigging us up, then he turned around to me and said "you don't listen (I still don't actually lol), look at your bait." I turned around just in time to see that rotten seagull swallow the last piece. ToungueMad. So needless to say I don't turn my back on the bait any more. Toungue

So what was your first "hard learned" fishing lesson? Post em up!! upToungue

Cast Net

Be sure to have the rope around your wrist before throwing the cast net.
