The first time I ever went fishing, Dad, my brother Thom and our cousin Rick all piled in my uncle Marlen’s boat. When we got to deep water the hooks hit the water. Uncle Marlen had to bait my hook (even at 10 I hated handling bait!). While he baited the hook he explained what to do when the fish took the bait. When that monster took the bait I wasn’t ready; I listened like most 10 year-olds. I was distracted with how deep the water was, and how fast that boat would sink if I knocked the side panel out with my foot. When the opportunity struck my line, all I could do is yell for Uncle Marlen…I got one…what do I do?
