Fishing with my son in Ohio in December!
Fishing with my son in Ohio in December was a awesome time!
It was simply awesome being able to go home and enjoy a couple unusual pretty spring days at the end of December. Fishing no less! We had a great time fishing and talking and solving the worlds problems ha ha.
It was one of the best times I have had all year. I never expected to be fishing there at this time of year. But boy did I have fun! I don’t like to brag but I have one of the best sons a man could have. He is a pretty good fisherman as well as you will see when I get this article finished.
Now I ask you is that a relaxed young man there by the rivers edge or what? I still think of him as a kid. It makes me feel younger. Of course he is all grown up but still loves to do things with me…especially fishing. Of this I am grateful.
The first day it was around 60 degrees and a little cool with the soft breeze but we were determined to be out fishing. He knows how much I love to go. I had a few bites but didn’t land anything. However he did and I was elated.
That was a nice bass that he landed the first half hour we were at that spot. We started out a little ways away but decided to move to a river spot we had been to many years ago together when he was quite young. It brought back a lot of memories. Good ones! The picture above just shows you that fishing with my son in Ohio in December put a smile on his face.
Catching but not landing-who cares
We caught but didn’t land a couple others but that was okay, it was fun just having them get on the hook. Remember it was our first day out. We were using lures to start but soon went to night crawlers. River fishing is quite different than lake fishing.
The spot we were at is near Brinkhaven Ohio which is known for the longest covered bridge in Ohio which is a fun fact. Oh how I remember those early days when my son was just a boy. Those memories kept flashing back to me the entire day and day to follow. Those memories are priceless to me. Now new memories were being made.
This is an awesome little video I made while fishing with my son in Ohio in December and yes that is actually my handsome son. I hope you enjoy this short video. I thought it would be a nice touch to my vacation.
We certainly had a wonderful time fishing in the natural beautiful surroundings of the bridge.
My only regret is that the moment couldn’t last longer. Oh well there is always next time. Thee will be plenty of next times if I have anything to say about it.
Please keep in mind I am not a professional writer or cameraman. But I can tell you this I really love fishing.
The above video of fishing with my son in Ohio was nice. On day two we had a blast. The weather was great for northern Ohio in December. My companion was great of course since it was my handsome son again. Two men out fishing with night crawlers in hand. We set out to catch anything we could get our hooks in.
I won’t show you the picture of me tree fishing ha ha ha. Hey it happens to the best of them when fishing along the river. You know you get ready to cast big and sure enough you don’t look to see where the tree limb is hanging. Needless to say I lost some tackle that time. Hook line and sinker was gone up hanging in that tree.
That’s okay I just go here to get more tackle and maybe another reel or two. You can never have too many rods and reels I say. That might not be what the wife says though. Shhhh don’t tell her okay? Heck she has as many as I do as we both love fishing.
Back to my story
Back to my day two of having so much fun fishing and seeing the beautiful sky we set out to have major success. We didn’t have major success but we did catch some fish. Well my son did anyway. I was kept shutout but it was the fact we shared another day out in nature doing what we love best.
I guess you are waiting for more pictures? Let me see if I can find one that will really get you excited and wanting to go fishing yourselves. In the meantime let me tell you Ohio is a great place to go fishing. They have plentiful rivers and many lakes not to mention the farm ponds.
Fishing with my son in Ohio in December is reflected in the images below.
I ask you is that not beautiful? Yes sir it sure is! Day two found us forgetting the time and wanting to keep fishing but as all things it must come to an end eventually . We by no means got in a hurry to leave but the time seemed to go by ever so quickly. I knew my time fishing in Ohio would soon be over and it made me sad.
I can’t wait till we can get together again to be together out in the wide open spaces fishing to our hearts content. Did I ever tell you about the time we went to Virginia and met my son and grand daughter there and stayed in a quaint little cabin?
Don’t worry I will tell you soon. It involves fishing of course. Please go to my fishing stories category at i-love-fishing.com.
