Fishing doesn’t always need to be about catching fish. Sometimes, it’s about spending quality time with friends and family. When it comes to Pete Maina’s family you can general expect both.
From rat burgers in Vietnam to locating fish with the anchor rope, the stories and laughs made up for a slow morning of trolling. Once Tex pulled out his vintage tackle box, circa 1965, fishing really turned around. By the end of the day Pete had Tex and uncle Jim on more fish than they new what to do with. With smallmouth and walleye on every cast and a few doubles the stories never slowed down.
“One nice one and one that’s to big” was the motto of the day as the old timers debating the purpose of fishing if you’re not going to eat your catch.
