I am sure I am in the minority, but I would not consider going fishing without my wife. She knows how to fish, and that is fact! We both can't wait for opening day when we will be able to cast our lines and wait for that first tug on our lines! We use only artificial bait and practice catch and release. She even takes her fish off the hook. I am 74 years old and do not work anymore due to a work related injury. I was in the automotive repair business my whole life including being a tank mechanic from 1966-1969 and loved every minute of what I used to do. If not for the injury I would still be working, but now WE have more time to launch our 14' aluminum boat hang the electric motor on the back and off WE go!

Great story.
My wife don’t fish but she likes to go along sometimes.
I don’t take her if it’s gonna be too windy or too hot or cold. She has MS and can’t take a lot of abuse.
I enjoy her going along. And she enjoys cruising around in the boat

You’re a lucky man. My wife likes to fish a little. Her first fish was a 19 3/4” smallmouth bass out of our canoe. She is deaf in one ear and couldn’t understand me as I told her to turn and let it swim over to me as guess who forgot the net? Well, what she thought was swing it over to me almost went horribly wrong...she lifted it out of the water with a light rod and as it flipped off the hook, it landed at my feet . I grabbed it and had her hold it for a picture. It is on my wall at work so I will post a picture of that picture when I am back in the office. We did this without flipping the canoe so I married her. 😉

You two keep counting those blessings. You make quite a few of us jealous.
