How to catch fish...

1) Let your Dad & your brother wake up at 5:00 am or however early they want to get up to go...you don't need them & you need your sleep...so sleep in peacefully...
2) When you wake up, at your own natural time, get dressed & walk over to the bait shop & buy the best bait you can afford...(those little minnows that come in a portable tank for example)...
3) don't bother with a boat...walk over to the nearest dock where it is sunny and pretty and calm and quiet...
4) put your bait on the hook & let your line drop straight down, don't cast or you will lose your bait...
5)you will probably catch a bunch of plump peachy rock bass...hook them onto one of those thingys that holds them all on one chain & put the chain back into the water hanging off the dock so they stay wet & fresh...
6)go away and have some lunch or something and see what your Dad and brother have caught when they come back from their early early morning boat trip...Laugh when they show you the already dead when they netted it smelly pike...(that was floating on the lake when they rowed by)...
7)go back with Dad & brother to show them what you caught...
8) when Dad goes to pull your line with the rock bass attached, feel the intense shock when Dad and then brother realise that there are like six huge fresh pike that have hooked themselves accidently on the thingy while trying to eat the rock bass you caught...
9)win Fisherman of the week trophy at Lake Okeechobee Lodge...watch as old bearded fishermen eyeball 11 year old girl with envy ...as everyone eats your catch for dinner...
10) tell story for the rest of your life...
11)this is a true story...
