Bashful’s Great Fishing Trip

20 Nov

While at Tybee Island with mom/dad several weeks ago, Bashful went on a fishing trip.  You know that is one of dad’s favorite past times – to go fishing.  So, I guess that kind of rubbed off on the little rock.  He was so thrilled and was so full of confidence that he was going to get the ‘big one’ and it wasn’t going to get away… like it does in dad’s stories – snorts.

So, he got his fishing rod out and spent several hours watching his line for any kind of movement.  He has the patience of a boulder – he waited and waited and waited.

And then TUG – the line moved.

Bashful jumped into action and started reeling in the line.  He asked for some help from the regulars at the pier and a kindly gentleman came over to help him reel whatever Moby Dick he had on the line in.  It was touch and go for a while.  The line went out.  The line went in.  It was a monster!

Bashful stood his ground though and continued to pull in whatever was on the other end.  Was it a shark?  Was it Moby Dick himself?  Was it the Loch Ness monster?  Whatever it was, it was the longest twenty minutes of his life!   Then they saw something jump in the water.  OH WOW!

Man the net – man the pier – wipe the little rock’s forehead – the monster came out of the water.

It was touch and go for a while but finally the brought the big killer in – all in its glory.  What a fish!  It was amazing.  And to think dad, Bashful has ‘proof’ of his big catch… where’s your proof? snorts.

And being the good little tyke he is, after the ever so kind fellow fisherman helped out, they kissed it and threw it back in the ocean to his family.

When Bashful was asked why he threw it back, he replied, “It wasn’t big enough.”  aaww – that’s my rock!

    That’s a big fish.
    Better eat fish than bacon.
    I’ve haven’t gone in a fishing trip in ages, I gotta meet someone who has all the equipment so they invite me.

      That is true – Eat fish not bacon – snorts. Usually mom/dad rent a charter and go deep sea fishing through someone they know. Thank goodness they didn’t do that with Bashful – heck he might have caught Jaws! XOXO – Bacon

    Wow, I bet Mr. Hemingway knew Bashful and The old man and the sea is the story about Bashfuls fishing adventure :o)

      You’re probably right! When Bashful came home, the first thing he told me was that he caught Moby Dick. I just knew he was joking until he showed me the picture. It was pretty close… compared to his size – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      • easyweimaraner

        11/20/2013 at 8:56 am

        hahaha, yes. But I’m glad Bashful is one of the stoines and not Captain Ahab :o)

      I’m very proud of the little tyke. I just knew he could do it. Maybe the fish were biting more because Sponge Bob was in the area making his movie? XOXO – Bacon

    Wow. Lucky catch bashful!

    • PigLove

      11/20/2013 at 9:01 am

      He was very lucky and it was great that there were so many people there to help him ‘reel’ it in. Thanks to the friends there, he actually caught the big one that always seems to get away – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    That’s the biggest fish I’ve ever seen!

    • PigLove

      11/20/2013 at 9:39 am

      It was for me too. In fact, it was bigger than the one daddy caught and has hanging in his office here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s sad to say my little rock caught one bigger than daddy’s – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    They threw that fish back in? And I was so hoping for fish for dinner.

    • PigLove

      11/20/2013 at 2:03 pm

      I think mom/dad were too. Fresh fish. But Bashful said it wasn’t big enough. XOXO – Bacon

        Maybe next time Bashful will land a whale.
