It’s no Disgrace
A famous coach once said that “it is no disgrace to be defeated but it is a disgrace to stay defeated.” Now folks, I detest getting skunked or “blanking” when I go fishing. It is like losing and losing runs against my grain.
After not doing so well in town yesterday I was determined to keep trying. Last night after our Bubba Burgers and Beans supper I told Ramona that I was going to try to catch two Bream before dark and bait up my two baitcasters for the night. As it turned out I caught two pretty good ones, baited up and came on in for some Blue Blood reruns. Before I went to bed I told my bride of 44 years that if a Cat got one of those Bream, he’d have to be a good one. After receiving one of her “OK, whatever you say Dear” looks I went to bed full of anticipation.
I ran an errand early this morning and returned quickly to my rods. The left one was dancing and I knew then that I was back in the game!! The photos are terrible but you’ll get the message. I’m not sure of the weight but I try not to cloud a good story with too many facts. I’d say roughly that this Flathead will go somewhere between 4-49 pounds ��
So how about it? Are you feeling defeated this morning? Remember this:
“it is no disgrace to be defeated but it is a disgrace to stay defeated.”
