I had never fished water that I could not boil and drink until today. I was excited to take my fish pole and tackle to the shoreline to see what might bite– I admit that I was not too comfortable in my new surroundings, however the scenery made for a pleasant backdrop. There was no wind, which was bad for me and good for the bugs. I was hoping that in this activity, I could outsmart the insects by staying outside of the woods, but nature is always humbling. Being unprepared for my attempt at saltwater, I tied on a lake trolling lure that acted as though it was a dry fly on its first cast. I had trouble getting the small, metal fish to sink, and upon my successes, I was awarded with catches of seaweed. I do not know when I will try this again, but I am sure investing time into reading about the subject will help.
