    If only it were that easy! But my Father would say it wasn’t about catching the fish, it was about being out on the lake.

    Wait till you’re older Calvin. You will develop many ways of keeping the fish from biting and ruining your afternoon view of the water. I prefer leaving the bait home.You can solve all the worlds problems with a pole in your hand’ Fortunately those solutions are left at the riverbank as you load your truck after a hard day fishing. Most men are able to help this forgetfullness with the aid of a cooler.

    Give a fish your bucket and you don’t eat for a day. Teach him not to jump in it, and you never eat fish. . ..

    It worked for Ernie on Sesame Street. Calvin just has the call wrong; it’s ‘Here Fishy, Fishy Fishy!’

    Calvin’s way of trying to catch fish is ‘beyond the pale’.If he used a ‘seine’, the ‘net’ results might be better.

    “Those fish are wise beyond your six years…” because they travel in schools.

    In westernmost Illinois, there used to be a low spot in the bottoms called Lima Lake (still appears on older maps) which has now been drained and turned into corn-fields, at least in years the levee holds up. Old timers told of a pipe that drained the lake, boaters would park near the pipe and a few fish coming out the pipe would be unlucky enough to land in the boat! Fish were then taken to Canton, Mo and iced for shipment to St. Louis. They also told of one man that didn’t know when to stop, and the weight of the fish sank his boat!

    there’s a fine line between “fishing” and “standing on the shore like an idiot”one of my favourite quotes about fishing.

    See why we always called it “drowning worms”? You can’t just hold out the bucket and expect the fish to jump in. You need those worms to drown.

    “Here Fish??” Calvin needs to address his catch by their proper name. Like, “Here, Mr. Fish!”

    I always thought you were supposed to take a jump in the lake, not in the bucket….
