When it comes to Don and his fishing, the D stands for determination. Fishing a lake with big fish potential Don spent a lot of the day grinding things out in the no-catch section. Determined to make the day pay off he suggests another lap around the 40-surface acre pool. Moments later I look back and see Don with the long rod nearly doubled over on a really big fish. Both of us held our breath the entire time until the fish was landed. Get the photo op, let the fish go and revel in the victory for a few moments before casting out once again.
“That was for you, Larry.” He said laying out the next cast.
Larry Dahlberg is one of Don’s heroes and a great hunter of big fish. He even has a website that matches his philosophy called Hunt for Big Fish.
I have added an image link to this site on my blogilicious to help increase the passion for catching and releasing big fish. Next time you land a big fish, let it go and say, “That was for you, Larry.”
Good luck and good fishing
