    My first day of vacation was yesterday and to celebrate my husband (ka_c4_boom) took me fishing on the Ohio. The day started looking gloomy when we woke up and he figured I would say no way - no fishing today -- WRONG! It was gloomy and chilly but I donned the old man's coveralls and we were off! We rode down the river in his boat to a spot he assured me was full of fish and turned me loose. He let me do all the fishing. I was in heaven. He taught me how to bait a hook with skipjack and how to rig a line (I think that's what he called it). Anyway, I got to reel in all of our catches yesterday. I started with a small channel, then a bigger flathead. My third catch was the biggest of the day - a 20 lb. blue - my personal best! 2 more flattys and another channel and my day was complete. We had the best time - a picnic in the boat while catching fish - nothing better. :big_smile: Add in lots of laughter and a few stolen kisses and I couldn't have asked for a better day. We came home and had bluecat for supper! :lol: We're supposed to go fishing again tomorrow as it's my birthday. Hope we catch a bunch! I'll keep you posted.
