A little back story, my lovely wife likes to accompany me fishing pretty often, her attention span generally last about an hour and switches to getting a tan if they aren’t biting right away. She normally fishes a spinner bait or trap (easy fishing).

Yesterday on the way to the lake I said “Babe, I’m going to teach you to fish a Texas rig today”. Gave her a little run down on how to fish it and what she should imagine the bait doing in the water. Third cast of the day I look back at her and she has her rod bent over and relling on something. I looked over and said you hooked a stump (this happens pretty often). She said “Oh dang..NO IT’S SWIMMING SIDEWAYS”! I saw the fish jump and then I was I was laying on my stomach waiting on her to get it close enough to the boat that I could snatch it...her new PB and she hasn’t stopped talking about it since!

Congratulations on a nice fish! Having a wife that enjoys fishing makes the sport so much better. Once she catches a few more like that, she will do less tanning and more fishing. At least that is how it happened with my wife.

Years ago I learned that fishing is just a waste time for me.

If I want fish on the table, minnows in the bucket, or bait for the trot line, send the girls/wife out fishing.bang

Congratulations to your wife. Very nice fish.thumb

Mr BAllen91 let your wife catch all the stumps she wants. wife
