Fishing has always been more than just a sport to me. It doesn't matter how many fish, (if any at all) or how big they are, you always have a good time. Today was no exception. Almost every year, for the Fourth of July, our family goes to Causey Reservoir. This year, I brought my pole and tackle box with me. My dad quickly caught on to my idea and brought his as well. Everyone else would very much rather go swimming, but not me and my dad! (well, he did both simultaneously) At first I tried a couple casts with a spinner, but I quickly realized, The fish are going to be a lot closer to the bottom because of swimmers and kayaks. When I reeled it in, My dad just finished tying his line. I asked him what color of powerboat he was using, and he said chartreuse (that's the only color he ever uses) And I put on pink because it works almost every time. I casted it out, waited for it to sink, then went a couple yards away to sit under the only shade available. Once I sit down, I look up, and my pole was moving! I ran over and set the hook. At first, I thought I missed him because of how little he fought. I got him to shore and he ended up being about 6-7 inches. That was the only fish we caught all day, but still, anything is better than no fish! All in all, it was a day well spent!
