The First Fishing Trip.
It’s young boy Ethan’s first fishing trip. He gets onto his grandfather’s boat with the fishing gear.
“Are you exited to go fishing Ethan?” said Grandpa.
“Yeah Grandpa, I am,” replied Ethan.
Grandpa gets the boat started and they get moving. When getting close to the nearby bridge, they stop and wait for the bridge to be raised. Once raised they get moving once again. They pass by a small island spot and Ethan turns to Grandpa.
“Hey, can we go on that island there?” said Ethan.
“I’ll take you there on another trip,” replied Grandpa. “Let’s focus on today being your very first fishing trip.”
They come to a stop once the boat’s scanner detects a good amount of nearby fish. They get their fishing gear and themselves ready. Ethan on the left, being left handed, and Grandpa on the right being right handed.
“Alright Ethan, once you see the ball drop and feel the movement begin to reel them in. Remember to go in the opposite direction that the fish are swimming from,” said Grandpa.
They start fishing and catch a good amount of fish. Grandpa, being the first to catch a fish, catches a good size Bluegill. Ethan’s first being a large sized Striped Bass.
“Wow my God that’s a very large fish. I am very proud of you Ethan,” said Grandpa. “Let’s take a photo together.”
They take their photo with Ethan’s very large first catch and then continue their fishing. They collect a good amount of different types of fish. They catch Bluegill, Striped Bass, Brook Trout, and Largemouth Bass fish. Ethan goes to reel in his 20th catch. He’s really struggling to pull this one in, so Grandpa comes over to help him out.
“Wow Ethan you’ve got a real big fish on your rod,” said Grandpa.
Grandpa puts a lot of work into it and finally begins to bring the fish closer to the boat. He starts to reel it in more and more, but with a sudden change of direction.
“That’s odd, the fish is actually swimming toward us now,” said Grandpa.
As the reeling brought the fish closer and closer to the boat, the fish’s fin broke the surface of the water.
“Holy crap that’s a shark,” said Grandpa.
The shark quickly swam up and under the boat. The fishing rod’s base has a magnetic connection to the boat to keep it secure.
“Ethan that shark is huge, going under the ship is going to flip us over. We need to remove the fishing rod’s cable, I can’t just pull it out,” said Grandpa.
“Ok Grandpa, I…. I’ll grab the fish cutting blade,” replied Ethan.
Ethan grabs the blade and quickly begins to cut at the cable. He’s getting closer to cutting it off, the boat begins to tip over. He begins cutting it faster and, faster and finally removes it just in time. The boat tips back into position and they both collapse down.
“You, you did it Ethan, thank you for saving us,” said Grandpa.
“Yeah I somehow managed to,” said Ethan. “What are we going to do now?”
“Let’s head back to the dock and finish up there,” replied Grandpa.
They head back and get docked at Grandpa’s location.
“So, do we just bring these fish back for Grandma to cook?” said Ethan.
“We’ll do that for most,” replied Grandpa. “But we’ll skin some of the smaller ones to catch some crabs off the docks hear.”
They skin one of the Bluegill and put that skin in a net. They take that net over, with a second net, over to the edge of the dock. Grandpa puts the net with the fish skin over and waits just a moment. A crab comes over and puts its claw in to grab at the skins. Ethan then uses the other net to scoop up the crab.
“At a boy Ethan. Good job, now since this is your first crab caught, let’s take a picture of that as well,” said Grandpa.
Ethan kneels down and gets ready for the photo, holding the crab from behind the claws. The phot gets taken, but not as good as the previous one, for Ethan’s hands were shaking a tad bit while taking the photo. Once the photo is taken, Ethan’s grip slips and the crab turns and claws his hand hard. Ethan pulls his arm back and throws it forward, tossing the crab off and back into the water.
“Alright Ethan, perhaps with all that’s happened, we should end your first fishing trip here, said Grandpa.”
