Me and my wife went to Amacalola Falls state park today, and my wife was real handy.
My hands tremble so bad that I can't bait a hook, so, my wife would put on surgical gloves, pinch a nightcrawler in half and run a hook one time through the middle and I would cast into the park pool, with no sinker, and I subsequently caught eight trout. six were this years stockers but two were holdovers and were much larger.
I learned today that a spinning reel is more than a trembler can handle.
So, I'm going back to spincast reels which are foolproof when you buy a good one.
My wife would never touch a worm or a fish bare handed and she went through a lot of surgical gloves
plus she couldn't watch as I cleaned the fish.
I was gonna filet them, but was shaking so bad that I just beheaded and gutted them and will fry them whole.
Along with my famous hush-puppies and some seasoned fries.
