baiting a hook

Finding Fishing Holes where We Live

Catching Rock Bass in Vestavia Hills, AL!
Hello.  My name is Kai. Today we're fishing at a creek in Vestavia Hills, AL.  We caught a bunch of rock bass on artificial grub worm lures and worms and rooster tails. I caught 18 rock bass today.  They were about the size of my hand.  This is one of them that I caught today.  I also caught two large mouth bass in another creek near Vestavia Hills High School. 

Another one!
A fishing hole we found near the high school.

Caught him and then threw him back!

Yay fish!

Adding more bait.

Can you see the fish about to bite?

Fishing Poem

Fishing is fun!
I think it is cool.
See the fish bite on the hook.
Hear them hit the top of the water.
I think Bream fishing is fun too.
No fish can resist bait.
Got to go fishing!

I am learning about poetry at school.  This is an acrostic poem.

College Fishing Tournament in Guntersville

I went to a fishing tournament at Lake Guntersville in Alabama.  I got a special lure from one of the Alabama fishing team members.  They told me a few tips on fishing.  I got my picture made with the teams from the University of Alabama and UAB (University of Alabama at Birmingham).  It was a really fun trip.

Spring Break 2012 Fishing on the Warrior River

We fished on topwater bait about 10 to 20 minutes at the Gorgas Steam Plant down a rock bank. We caught one pretty big bass and that was the first fish I have ever caught on a topwater lure! We caught three crappie that day on minnows and brim baits.  You should really go fishing on the Warrior River or Bankhead Lake. 

When we got home we got the fish and got a spoon with a rough head and a knife.  We brought out a cutting table and we cut the fish's head off and then we take all the scales off with the spoon. Then we wash them off and then they are ready to cook.

We only caught catfish on this day.  One of them was really, really big as you can see.  One was medium-sized and one was ok -- smallish. These were caught on the Warrior River.  It was a sunny day with a little bit of clouds.  That is really good fishing weather for any kind of fish.
