Fishing for the sake of just fishing

I’ve managed to turn fishing into work. Really. Ninety-percent of the time; fishing is all about “got to bag this photo”, “got to get picture fish for tomorrow’s shoot”, etc. Yesterday was about, just fishing. Fishing for fun. No pressure for photos or content. Our only worry was to get back to the office by lunchtime. In our search for spotted bass, we found crappie in eight to fourteen feet of water off of deep points. While they appeared to be scattered, we caught and released plenty. We could’ve filleted them and had a fish fry. Nah, that would be too much work. 🙂
