    Never thought I would post in this section.

    Doing a little training at Ft L.Wood in MO.
    I have been stuck here and there is nothing to do but drink, strip club and watch the weather change every hour.

    Went on a little run and saw a river and some Marines fishing. Asking what going on and as we all say "another day of fishing" Crazy thing is that you see the water bubble. Gar and small mouth where everywhere. So I told myself that I plan to go fishing May 5th.

    May 5th came. Did my Shit Shower and shave and headed out to the local watering hole. There were two others tossing out some poles. They where catching stuff left and right. I was there for like an hour still nothing. Just crazy ass snakes popping out of no where. Another guy pop out and join in on my spot. He was a local and had a floater and night crawlers. He pop his first cast and what did he pull up a blue gill.

    More guys started to pop up but just to see what was going on. I casted out my plastic warm I said last cast I'll let it chill for awhile and I'm going to go. Watching the other guy. I got bent. Thinking it was being pulled by drift wood I started to reel it in.

    When the line started to come closer color showed up. Out of no where people started to show up. Coaching me on how to land the fish.

    Well enough about what happened. Heres pictures.
