I left off my weekend of first with a post about my first Art on the Rocks at the Birmingham Museum of Art! You can check it out here.
So to continue my weekend of first I finally did something I have been waiting to do for a long time! What is it you say I finally went FISHING!!
It began with a 4:30 am alarm and getting to the dam by 5:30 am. My friend picked me up and we drove in the wee hours of the morning to the dam. It was so calm and serene a great view.
We started off by throwing a net in the water to catch bait fish ( I can't remember the name). We on caught 2 in the 30 mins bad morning he said. He did catch a flathead catfish in the net tho, he said that was luck!!
Since I was a newbie he gave me a small pink rod for beginners.
We ( and I mean he) bated the hooks with crickets. We were fishing for a fish called brim. And after 5 hours and several failed attempted on my part I finally caught a fish. Sorry for the blurry pic he was not the best photographer.
I really had a great time fishing. I can't wait to go again. We finished up trying to catch another catfish but we didn't getting any bites. Here's the final pics before we left. Yes I was sitting on a bucket cuz we forgot the chairs in the car.
Have you ever been fishing before! Did you enjoy it?
