Monday, my wife and kids had spent the day at my in-laws house. I called my wife to tell her I was on my way home and she was still over at my in-law’s house. My first thought was to head over to Walmart to pick up some stuff for fishing. Then I thought that was stupid, go out fishing instead. I knew my family would not be home for at least a half hour, so I decided to hit one of my subdivision ponds. I went to the one pond that had no surface algae. I grabbed one rod that was rigged with a Booyah Pond Magic spinnerbait in white color. First cast with it and I felt something hit it. It was close to shore when it hit, so the battle did not last that long. I pulled in this guy:

It taped at 19”. I should have stopped then and there because I didn’t catch anything else. I am always the optimist and always hoping for more. I fished for about 10 more minutes and called it quits. I was still dressed in my work clothes and sweat was pouring off of me. I got home did some stuff around the house. My wife and kids finally got home. My wife was picking things apart and wondering why I didn’t do this or that. Finally it hit her. “You went fishing didn’t you?” All I had to do was smile. It was worth it.
