I finally caught my first silver. Just in time, too! I had about 1 hour left until my license expired. Now I need to find a place to smoke it.
I was talking to a man and his wife that were fishing also. He is a former superintendent, principal and teacher. I asked them to help me since they had already caught their limit and they gave me some good advice. They were patient with me, and could see the fish with their polarized sunglasses. They may have been more excited than I was.
It is really fun to learn new things and I have learned a lot about fishing. I used a lure that one of my teachers said was sure to catch a silver. It did today!
