The Lifeless Bowl

This past summer my brother and I spent a week scouting out new water. We chose 10 spots on a map and planned our route accordingly. The locations were a mixture of rivers and lakes.
We started each day at 3:00AM and were on the road by 4:00AM. After about the fifth day I was getting pretty beat down from getting up so early and doing all the driving. My brother kept saying that it was his vacation after all.

When we got to the lake, I was a little disappointed; the lake looked like a small lifeless bowl, so I told him that I would probably sleep in the truck while he fished.
While I was relieving myself next to the truck I noticed him catch and release a fish. As I started to get ready for my nap I noticed him catch another fish. As I tried to close my eyes for a nap I saw him catch another fish. This went on for about ten minutes with more fish caught.

With each fish he caught I was getting less and less tired, by about his tenth fish I was running down the hill with all of my gear. It did not take long to get into some fish with my black bugger. We did pretty well that day.

On our way out of there, we just giggled a little and promised to never tell anyone the name and location of that lake.
