Teaching The Youth What A Real Fight Is
(El Paso, Texas US)
1 of the 5 Striped Bass We Picked A Fight With
My father took my sister out to fish. My sister had just gotten in a fight, and so as punishment she had to go fishing with my dad and I. My sister hated fishing after a falling out of the boat incident.
I thought getting her up at 4 a.m. would be the highlight of the trip. But, as one of the poles bent over and the line began to peel out on the lake, that idea vanished.
We had a great trip catching five stripers. All not bad in size either but the biggest win was converting my sister to a fisher of the deep.
Youth Versus Striped Bass
What a nice and creative way to turn a negative incident into a positive outcome. And it sounds like all three of you won by going on that striper fishing trip.
However, you might have to reconsider the punishment the next time... do you think your sister learned her lesson? ;-) (I'm joking of course.)
Those are some really nice looking striped bass. Did you happen to weigh them? That one looks to be around 40 pounds.
Great job to all three of you. Thank you for sharing your striped bass fishing pictures and story. Keep on fishing!
