    I have been married to my wife for 31 years and dated her since the 8th grade.
    Well she went fishing with me last weekend in her sister pond for the 1st time. (I have had a bass boat for years) I had to bait her hook and take the gills off her hooks but we had a great time! She had not fished since she was 4. To see her catch one of the monster gills was great. She would think that she would have a bass by the way gills fought. At first when her bobber would go down she would crank the line in. So I told her to set the hook and when the bobber went down she would crank the line in faster. I had to laugh at that. I told her to jerk the line. Then she started catching. She was like a little kid. LOL
    Just thought I would share a fun day my wife and I had.

    Those fun days are the memory makers of life!
    And that day just may be the first step in a new catfishing partner for you. :)

    I get a thrill with each fish I catch. Doesn't matter if its a 'gill, bass, cat, crappie, its the catching that is the fun


    Thanks for sharing.

    sometimes i think my wife is the luckiest fisher around. she can make a miscast and still catch nice fish on it. just shows that all you need is a hook in the water to catch fish. good luck on getting your wife back out to fish a lot more.

    That's a great story...met my wife 41 years ago on a walleye fishing date out on log booms in Storm Bay on Lake of the Woods. We've been fishing together ever since. Since we moved to Manitoba 4 years ago she's been out with me almost every weekend since spring outfishing me.
    Best fishin' buddy I've ever had!:roll_eyes:

    I ask my wife if she wants to go every time cause I enjoy her company. She usually turns me down, though I still ask. The day I quit asking she will try to put an end to me going so I always ask. One of my more recent trips I had caught a sturgeon that I couldn't get the hook out very easy, she held onto the fish while I cut the hook so I could slip it through. It was the first time she ever touched a sturgeon and it hasn't stoped her from going. I think she kinda liked it.
