My First NJ Fish

I know I don’t post much. Most of what I have to say shows up on Lynne’s blog. Maybe I’ll beat her to this one. (But, she has the photo…)

I caught my first fish in New Jersey today. I got tired of trying every lure in the shop, hoping to snag a bass. About sunset we went to Green Turtle Pond and I tried a new lure some…actually hooked a medium sized fish—but lost it. Finally I went to the trusty worm-on-a-hook-with-a-bobber. Not really my favorite fishing technique, but I finally caught something! It was a sunfish, about 5” in length.

Now that I’ve lost my virginity, I’m on the hunt for bigger prey (and edible, too!)
