A great fishing season – part 1

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERALate Night TV host David Letterman wouldn’t know a bass if it jumped out of his bottomless coffee cup, but he did make the “Top Ten” list famous. So we’re borrowing the concept from him, but on a much more serious topic than he ever considers.

The next two days, I’m sharing my

“TOP TEN” list for how you know it’s been a great fishing season.

Here goes:

No. 10 – You have unhooked so many fish, there is no skin left on the bottom half of your right thumb.

No. 9 – The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has put an enforcement agent on special assignment just to follow you.

No. 8 – You are on your third new electric filet knife of the season. The first two burned up.

No. 7 –  Your old fishing buddy, George (who works too much and missed a lot of the trips) won’t even return your phone calls.

No. 6 –  You had to take money out of savings just to buy more fish baits.

Stay tuned tomorrow from Nos. 1-5 !!!   PS – If you need any explanations, please just leave a question in the “comment” section and we’ll have George get back to you.

  1. Yep, Darbone1, I found the bream the other day: L. Claiborne, between 29 and 32 feet deep!

  2. Dear “Cold Front”, Friday is starting to look like your kind of day. Temp near 30, north wind — I bet you can find bream bedding somewhere…

  3. “Cold Front Jones” here…Yep, I have helped Bob Mitcham many, many times with his “too many fishes” problems. Maybe I helped him a few too many times. Keep after ’em, Bob.

  4. J Jones, I have a solution to your overcrowding problem for fish filets, deer meat and garden produce. Just give me a call and I’ll come with a couple of ice chests! Merry Christmas!

  5. Around our house, it’s been a great fishing season when the packages of frozen fish fillets pile up: we have no more room left in the freezer, or the deep freeze, or the freezer in the garage, or mother-in-law’s freezer (next door). Now THAT’s a great season! All that coupled with frozen garden produce (corn, beans, etc.) and deer meat, we’re all set to eat well. God is good.

  6. If you would just take my friend “Cold Front” Jones with you on your fishing trips, you could solve 99 percent of your surplus fish problems. He’s the only guy I know who can make a “killing frost” in July !

  7. The really bad thing about George is that he still has to work for a living.
