No Bite!

It was the night before I was going out on the lake. I had my maps out and my location staked. 

I had a great plan and the alarm set. I was ready to catch a biggin’ you better best bet. 

I hit the water early full of excitement and glee, but to my surprise no bass did I see.

 I tried different techniques, even tried different lures. I just knew I was gonna cull for sure.

Finally, I felt that tug on my line, and I knew that tonight I would celebrate with wine.

I tugged and reeled it on in, but much to my dismay it wasn’t a biggin’

It wasn’t even bass, but a freakin’ perch.  I shook my head. Man, I was hurt!

Despite the disappointment, I walked away with some contentment…

 There just were no biggins’ in the cove!

I tried to make light of a common situation that we all face. There are just some days that we have big plans, but no bites. Take a moment and remember why you started fishing. We all started because it was just fun.  Thrilling, to be more exact. So you did not have a bite, but you did have an opportunity to do something you love.  Keep it fun.  Count your blessings…at least you weren’t working.
