Haha! I just love it. Last night when a couple of buddies called me to see what I was up to I told them "I'm fishin, what else would I be doing!" They laughed, and said "no...really...what are you doing?" I laughed and said " honestly, I'm Fishin, I just caught a 47" muskie!"
What a blast it was! Not being very big into the video games, last night was the first time that I had played the Rapala fishing game for Wii. I figured there is no better way for me to keep up on my fishing skills during the off-season. The best part about the whole game was that I was able to fish on Lake Minnetonka and cast for the elusive muskies. Technology is really incredible. I'm sure many of you are familiar with this game, but it was my first time. It was extremely realistic, and I had to physically cast the bait out and use the remote as my fishing pole reeling and twitching the bait back to the boat. Trust me, the muskies are still the hardest fish to catch on this game, and it took me many tries and lost fish before I was able to land my first one. Before the night was finished I managed a few muskies with a 47" being the largest, Several nice bass, and walleyes topping out around 10 pounds. Not only was the game extremely realistic, but the audience I had watching me made it even better. You can see from the pic that Mikey really got into the game as well. Many times I thought he was going to fall out of his seat as he was screaming "SET THE HOOK!" I know there is nothing better than the real experience of landing that giant out on the water, but since we aren't able to do that this time of the year, this is the next best thing. Hahaha! What a ball! Just another way to keep on Livin' The Dream!
