When I say monster, I don't mean, "Oh, that's a really big fish."
I'm talking about catching something that makes you say, "Holy $&#@*## @#$@ that's a monster," while also thinking you might lose a finger while releasing the fish if you're not careful. A real monster.
I recently found out that northern pike swim in the river near my house. Now I'm ruined. I can't think of anything else.
Now once the warmer weather hits I'll be out there 24/7 trying to catch a fish that almost scares me to hold it up.
You have to hold it up for a photo.
...to scare other people.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
