FISHING AND A LAKE SUNSET

Jim has been out fishing several days when the weather permitted but he wasn’t having much luck with the catching part of fishing. That is until this last week.

IMG_0329 He decided to go out later in the day and along about 5:30 (when he normally starts to head in) he started to get some hits. That’s when he pulled in these beautiful large mouth bass.

And no, he didn’t keep them. They are both females and are full of eggs (which you can really tell in the picture of the biggest fish). So back they went into the water to have lots of little fish that hopefully will grow up so Jim can catch some of them next year.

Isn’t this picture of the sunset on the lake just incredibly beautiful?

  2. It was always my luck to catch pregnant fish - I guess they were too slow to escape and too hungry to avoid the bait!

  5. Huh! I never thought about what a pregnant fish would look like. I'm glad he threw them back. I agree with Gypsy about pregnant meaning slow and hungry. :D
