Kayak Fishing Makes You Happy Happy Happy

Catch & Release Bass Fishing

Catch & Release Bass Fishing

It’s like a ballet that could drown you – or at the very least – put holes in your fingers for life – dancing on the water with poles, lines, tackle and VERY SHARP HOOKS!  Ouch!   Fishing by kayak takes a little coordination….Which I am umm– still trying to master…LOL!

My husband is one Happy Happy Happy Fisherman!

We have gone catfishing in our kayaks several times — I even caught a few. :)  But – bass fishing by kayak is a new creature to us.  I found out that those lures are SHARP!  I also found out how to “catch” the other pole in my boat!  I’m pretty good at that.

I caught no fish on this expedition — but at least I didn’t flip my boat. :)    A friend of ours is trying to teach us how to Bass Fish.  Hopefully I will learn soon!  It appears my husband has already “caught” on to the fine art.  I think he’s now “hooked” on Bass Fishing!

First bass caught from a kayak!  Happy Happy Happy!

First bass caught from a kayak! Happy Happy Happy!

“Hey!  I caught it over there!” He says!  He is ecstatic and I am so happy to get the opportunity to share this joy with him.

I caught it over there!

I caught it over there!

So – even if you are not the best at fishing or whatever it is your spouse, kids or friends like to do — don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy and share their joy in the adventure.  It’s SO WORTH IT!

Time to go home...

End of the day…

Fishing provides fun, enjoyment and adventure.  But to experience the “Catch” of a lifetime — Catch the joy that only a relationship with Christ can bring!


Psalm 28:7

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
