Anyone Can Catch a Big Fish (Part II)

After a few of these Captain Tim quipped, "Anyone can catch a big fish."

Tim actually caught one by a dorsal fin.

We used crickets and dwarf wax worms. These teeny tiny fish took a few bites here and there with those crickets and left us without bait. The bobbers would bounce a couple of times then we'd have to reel in and re-load. This led Captain Tim to quip again: "Just like a blind coyote, eatin' from the hoof up."

If it hadn't been for the good conversation, excellent scenery, relaxing activity and the beer, it would have been a wasted day.

Regardless it was a fine, fun day and I'd do it again...with minnows or dew worms.


  1. Little fish.....big mouth! That's me! Captain Tim, kinda wish I had'nt made that remark?

  2. Nighcrawlers. Always, nightcrawlers.

These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
