Ugh ! Been Sooo Busy ...

Caught him yesterday evening on a small pole with a tiny lure ~ who's your fisherman, baby?

Can I get a "Ohhh yeah!" ?

You can also get an idea how excited I was by this if you'd like to see the very short video clip below:

We had houseguests last week and everyone had a great time ... I'll be starting my blogging rounds again after today's local company leaves.

Today, I'll be showing a little toddler boy from Kansas just what hungry painted turtles look like when you're standing on a dock holding a piece of orange cheese. These are the types of lessons all small children should learn.

Have a fun day and thanks for looking in!

Egad, I should have mentioned ... we do catch and release only.I'm not sure if I do it more out of a concern for the fishies or purely so that I might re-catch the bugger next year! :)

Woooo Hooooo !!!!!!

That must have fely great.
I fish and catching a bass is one hell of a fight and you caught a very nice one there.

I catch and release to unless I go trout fishing and even then we let the big ones go to keep spawn and bring home the two three pounders.

Walker I know what you mean about the trout. I too have caught and captured trout, but that was when my mom was alive and she enjoyed cleaning and cooking them. Now? Times they are a changin' ... :)

Hey, I've missed you, but I see your time is well spent. I have to confess that I don't care to fish, but I do appreciate the thrill of the catch. Good job there!

BARB ~ great to hear from you. Yes, apparently, inconsistency has become my middle name. I'm like New England weather ... when you're pretty sure you've got the Hag's pattern down pat - wait a minute! It'll change like magic.

KENJU ~ Judy ... we don't eat them but I'm sure he would have been a hearty meal indeed!

TAMMI ~ You know ... years ago you and I connected somehow (maybe through Wally or through June) and we did a great job of staying in touch until I dropped the ball and became the world's worst blogger. Will try to do better this time around. Welcome back!

Congratulations! That's a beauty.
I love to eat them. But I wouldn't clean one no matter what you paid me. Guess I'll have to stick to store-

Hubby just got back from a week long trip to Andros Island with my son to fish and I don't think he caught even one fish as big as your bass!!

Release? That's such a beauty, I'm afraid I would have had some bassushi right there in the boat!

Nice work, I'll have to start calling you Captain Ahab.

Is this your "Gone Fishing" post? I can bet what you and your guests had for supper!

Blogger Weary Hag said...

BOBBIE ~ Nah... I wouldn't clean them or cook them ... there's just too much good food out there in the supermarkets to stoop to this level (in my humble opinion).

8:12 AM  
Blogger Weary Hag said...

TABOR ~ Yay! I shall now be able to tell people that the fishing in our little pond is sometimes better than that at Andros Island! :)

WICKED H ~ Don't you dare go giving me ideas! haha

DAVE MORRIS ~ haha "Bassushi" ... hey wait! Is that a real word or a Morrisism?

COLLEEN ~ laughing over here. Yeah, I guess this IS my Gone Fishing post. Darn. Now I can't make another one this summer. :(
We didn't eat this fellah ... we gave him a kiss and sent him off to grow bigger for next season.

It was good to see you on my blog this morning! I'm with you --- I love wood, all kinds. I used to have just oak in the house, now anything goes. When the little tornado uprooted some walnut trees we salvaged some chunks. After aging for a year I want to make something beautiful with them.

Oh, and the bear? Tastes like chicken --- hee hee haw!

Have a fabulous 4th!

Hello Hag that is a bit weary.

I am home for good now. My wife is now a nurse, and I am currently a lazy bum. Hope all is well.

And you threw the fish back, right? Right? Don't mind me. Just a Pisces. And I believe you read the Fish Hook Sage, right? I think all kids need to experience nature. Just not with me!
