I was born in Plainview NY. I have lived in Florida, Nevada, California and N Dakota.
I have always been interested in fishing but never really learned how. Then in the spring of 2011, while I was visiting Dennis, a friend in N Dakota he asked if I wanted to go fishing. I said sure. Then I thought how boring. I couldn't have been more wrong.
I helped get the gear together and we headed to the lake for big northern pike. Dennis showed me how setup the rods so a strike would be easy see. Then he went to gather firewood. A few minutes later FISH ON!!
I grabbed the rod yelled for Dennis and began walking backward .. I kept going till the fish was 20ft up onto the shore. Dennis came running looked at the fish and I said" I wasn't about to lose it!" he laughed. We did high 5's and back slaps my pike weighted 12lb14 oz.
Since that day, I have lived and breathed fishing. During the next few months I learned to read the water and what baits work in what situations. I caught so many fish my arms ached.
Then in January I was introduced to ice fishing. What a fun time that was.
To say I am Hooked on fishing would be an understatement. I can't wait till my next adventure!!
