Best Fish Tale Ever

Fish tales are usually … well, fishy. Mostly, every time a fisherman tells a fish story the “big one” grows a couple inches each time the story is told. That, I suppose, is almost as much fun as catching the fish in the first place.

Fishing itself, though, is more than just catching supper from the river or lake. It’s about tying families together and making memories that last lifetimes. Very few activities in life can claim that credit.

My own fishing memories started as far back as I can remember. My Dad worked second shift in a paper mill as well as farmed. He took his vacation every spring and fall to get the crops in and to get the crops out. However, he always saved a special week in the summer just for fishing and spending time with us kids.

I remember spending many a lazy day with Dad and my Uncle Harold floating down the St. Joseph River near Colon, Michigan. There were always favorite spots where they always knew the fish would bite. OK, still not revealing the spots, sorry!
