“What are you fishing for?”
“Whatever takes my bait!”
Ever had that exchange before? I’m not sure if people say this due to their lack of confidence in catching a specific type of fish or if they are genuinely fishing for whatever will take their bait. Or there is one more possibility, they don’t care to have a conversation with me about whatever fish they are attempting to catch. Whatever it is, it bugs me!
I always know exactly what type of fish I am trying to catch, I am intentional. I set goals for my fishing trips. When I have two poles I fish for two different types of fish and the rig and bait will be different. But I digress…
In the past I have set fishing goals for myself. At one point I had never caught a largemouth bass so I went after it until I caught it. At one point I had never caught a trout so I went after them until I caught a nice little rainbow trout. I set goals for myself and then I make it happen!
My latest goal is the mighty King salmon! I have heard many tell me that you can’t catch them from the bank, but they are all just doubters. I am going out there with confidence. I will prove them all wrong. I don’t need a boat, I am the mighty bank angler! (lol ok, getting carried away)
All jokes Aside, my goal is to catch one of these fish, and so I will do my due diligence, I will ask around, I will buy the equipment necessary and I will catch a king salmon! I will take a picture with it, then I will post up the picture here as proof! That is my goal for the rest of this year!
Seasoned anglers, ANY tips (on catching salmon) are appreciated.
