A fishing story.. I hooked a big one.
I just drove in from the Lake. My Dad, my uncle and I went fishing. It was just fantastic! You never realize how many stars are in the sky until you get to see them on a lake in the middle of the night away from all the hustle and bustle of city lights and annoying people. It was jet black almost all around except for a few lights off in the distance scratching through the blackness. Shooting stars were no longer a rare occurrence but as frequent as a horn honking on the 101 freeway, well... Not that frequent, but you get the picture. The lack of stress was so unknown to me. I was almost completely lost. I found myself however as I set the hook the hardest I have ever done before. My adrenaline rushed and my pupils dilated.. The small tree I had burned seconds before around 4:20, had hit with a clear high. I gave one more tug and then let off. A few seconds later we had to pull the boat closer to where I set my hook. That stump in the water never had a chance. :)
