MOBY-GAR A not so subtle metaphor reflecting on my low budget adventures

Creek Fishin Shenanigans

It started as a hot humid day and became even more hotter an humider. My obsession with the brown beast is growing with every cast and my dream to tame the monstrosity will be revealed forthwith.

Naw- Just kidding I ain’t no kind of fancified writer- here is what really happend.

Went fishing the other day with a buddy down at the local creek. We caught rock bass, saugeye and little smallmouth bass. None of the fish were of much size- but they were fun on light tackle. It was getting late and our provisions (beer and beans) were running low. That is when he saw what appeared to be a small log sitting in the middle of the creek. He cast the plug in it’s general direction, and it made a wake swimming over to check it out. It slashed at the plug and put up a great fight- nothing fancy- just plain old fun.
