LOADED

drinkin’… after midnight…launchin’…before dawn…fishin’…in the mornin’…
then i’m gone…i’m gone…

i took the TETRA out at 5am…loaded…loaded…
drinkin’ suds in the pre-dawn light…loaded…loaded…i come alive…
when the head-shakes start…that’s when i make my move…sip-swing- ‘n’ strike!!!

drinkin’… after midnight…launchin’…before dawn…catchin’…in the mornin’…
then i’m gone…i’m gone…

i got gleem ‘n’ chrome philurs reflectin’ pheel…loaded…loaded…
ready to take on every fish ‘n’ beer…loaded…loaded…
cbass strike has spark ‘n’ power…loaded…loaded…
i’m drinkin’ beer…one right after another…
i set my hook ’n’ then hone in…the water starts flyin…when the gaff sinks in!!!

drinkin’… after midnight…launchin’…before dawn…fishin’…in the mornin’…
then i’m gone…i’m gone…drinkin’…after midnight…

song by: judas priest…bastardized as usual…
……………………………………………………………………………………….

boy…did i tie-one-on this morning…couldn’t help myself…work is always brutal
in the summer months…needed to relax ‘n’ just get stupid…fishin’ was just an
excuse to get two-sheets-to-the-wind-faced !!!

workin’ on my second heinny...just before the sun came peerin’ over the mountain
tops…i feel a tap-tap-tap on the squid laced iron??? wot the??? huh??? i shrugged
my shoulders ‘n’ went back to slurpin’…

as i knocked back a frosty one…my eyes rolled over lookin’ at the rod on my lap…
with my free hand…i yo-yo’d the rig once…as it fluttered to a stop…tap-tap-kaboom!!!
rod goes bendo!!! as the rod bent under my yak…one hand couldn’t hold’um…aaauh!!!

dropped my precious cargo (blasphemy in my book) ‘n’ grabbed the rod with both hands
with only the reel out of the water…steerin’ the rod to the bow to regain control…
i was able to manage the rod with one hand again…

luckily…my heinny landed up-right…so i grabbed it with my free hand ‘n’ continued
consuming as the beast ripped line ’n’ towed me to oblivion…he stopped occasionally
to flare his gills ‘n’ viciously head shake…tryin’ to through the hook…i countered
by slammin’ my thumb on the line to the rod ‘n’ liftin’…increasin’ the pressure to
insure the hook would not wiggle free…
page 1
after a long battle…a beautiful big fish emerged…with his heart still pumpin’…at
least two cups of blood pumped out of him…which made me start twitchin’ after
seein’ that great white shark eat that sea lion this summer…

no sooner than securing the beast…my other rig starts walkin’ away??? i swang
with force ‘n’ a heavy load was now attached…holy-ba-jesus!!! this critter
freight-trained!!! i screamed an indian war cry as if i just scalped my first european!!!
he towed me so far…so fast…i thought fer sure it was a thresher shark??? at color…
a monster appeared…yeah!!! sheet yeah!!!

while takin’ a pic with both fish on my lap…cry-key!!! i noticed water filled my cock-pit
‘n’ was leaking into my TETRA’s rod-pod!!! aaaugh!!! i immediately thru both fish back
in the water…redirecting them back to my tank well…securing them in the stern…

paddled in through the surf without a hitch (thank god)…packin’ up…i weighed them
on my 50 lb hand scale…but the scale bottomed out ‘n’ the numbers kept bouncin’ around…so i weighed them on the fancy doctors scale at home…52.2 ‘n’ 55.10 lbs…the
bigger one measured 55 ½ inches long…my lucky day…cheers !!!
