Yes, yes. Me and my wonderful prince went on a fishing trip. It was a fun, yet, wet experience. Let me give you the story on this one.
It begins the night before the trip. Let’s see, we had to go get supplies. $140 later at Walmart we had most of our supplies. They included a new pole for me, another pole for him, some hooks and weights, my fishing license and stuff for sandwiches. Now, don’t forget we still had to get bait and gas for the trip. Well, the bait and gas was another $70.
The night before we got everything we could together. All we had to do the next morning was stop and get ice. So off to bed we went.
That 3:30 alarm came early. Too early it seemed. But we got up and got ready for that almost 2 hour trip. We headed out with a quick stop for ice. Away we went! Look out fish, here we come!
The old, trusty GPS done great! That is until we got there. First, she took us to a place that looked like a driveway to a house. Then I tried a different address. Nope, took us all the way around the block, an extra 15 minutes due to it being a country block. Luckily, as we pulled up this time a park ranger was pulling up too. He informed us that where we wanted to be was in fact about about 1 minute around the corner. So, off we went to that spot. There was already a line formed when we got there. So we waited for the 6:30 open time.
Woohoo! Gates opened and in we went. Up the hill, around the corner, back down the hill and to the water. Pick out a boat, load our stuff, go back up hill to get a motor. After all that, off we go to catch some fish!!
Ok, the motor they gave us was probably the SLOWEST one they had. At least the sights were gorgeous! But you know what? We didn’t care! It was me and him on the water, spending time together, fishing. That’s all that really mattered. Anyway, we make our way towards the back, slowly. We find a spot and anchor up. Cast out and wait…..nothing. He says let’s move. So after a quick zig zag back and forth we head back towards the front of the lake. He spots a good place. Shit, somebody already claimed that spot. So he sees another one close by and the people are leaving. We’ll take that one. No sooner than we anchor up the other boat comes out of the cove we wanted. YES! Let’s hit it!
We pull into the cove, anchor up, bait up and cast out. No sooner than his hits the water he has a bite. He gets it in and we put it in a bag in the cooler. Well, I cast out while he sets up again. He says, bring it in and cast over there. Ok. So I start reeling it in. All of a sudden my line starts to pull. He thinks it’s probably a stick until he realizes it really was jerking away. I keep reeling then we see the fish, it was apparently the biggest shell cracker he’s ever seen. Yep, that’s right, ya girl caught the biggest fish of the day!! Yeah, buddy!
After the first initial excitement we cast again. Well, needless to say, we caught and we caught and we caught fish. No sooner than we could cast back out we were catching another. We found the sweet spot! We just kept right on fishing. Enjoying the quiet of the woods and water, the coolness of the morning and each others company. Just me and him.
After about 4 hours of great fishing, some laughs, and a ham sandwich for my lunch, it began to rain. Just a light rain at first so we made our way under some branches hanging over the water. I have to admit, that part was a bit romantic. Being a Little Mermaid fan like I am I half expected to hear Sebastian sing ‘Kiss the Girl’. But he didn’t so we just listened to the relaxing sound of the rain hitting the water. Then it got a little heavier and then a little heavier than that until we had a pretty decent down pour going on. Finally we decide to try and find shelter on nearby land. At first the trees worked but then it got harder. So my prince made us a shelter. Finally, it let up enough for us to load back up and head for shore. We ended up almost completely soaked. But it didn’t matter at all. We had the best time and caught a load of fish!!
To my prince, I had the best time! I enjoyed every second of the trip, even getting soaking wet. I enjoyed it so much because I was with you. I love you so much!
