What’s your favorite fish bait?

My favorite fish bait of all time goes back to the days when I was really mad at the largemouth bass.  The bait? A Mann’s six-inch Black Grape Jelly Waggler plastic worm.

I’ve caught more fish on that bait than any other. And when they quit making them two decades ago, I contacted a kind lady named Suzanne Newsome at Mann’s. She rounded up about a thousand of them they still had in the warehouse over in Eufaula, Al. And she shipped them to me.  When I ran out a few years back, I did the only thing I could do. I started crappie fishing. It was that serious.

My favorite Bible Verse goes back to the days when I first realized I needed to have a favorite Bible Verse.  That goes back to what it says at the top of this writeup.

My favorite verse is actually a whole chapter. It’s a popular chapter. Of course it mentions water and a rod (although not a graphite one), a peaceful nap and eating. But the most important line is verse 6…

The 23rd Psalm.

A psalm of David.

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
