There's nothing better than going fishing with little to no expectations and hitting the mother load. This weekend I had a trip to the inlaws for Mothers Day. I was pretty excited because my wife's uncle was going to take us out in his boat to fish Mark Twain Lake. Once I got there I was told the trip was canceled.
They have a pond behind their house that belongs to a neighbor. For the 12 years I've been going there I have always wondered if there were fish in it. I decided to find out. The pond is shallow and muddy and doesn't look like much on the eyeball test.
Here are the results I got on camera. My phone died on Sunday but I added another 4-5.lber that day.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after.
