    Default First fish on Ship Creek

    Oops, my bad I meant Shi* Creek here in Iraq. Did a little recon by line today. Between my commander and I we managed 3 in about an hour with a double hookup. Combat fishing at its finest. I see more of this in our future. It felt good to say for the first time in almost a year, "Fish On"!

    Dude thats Awesome. A whole year without yelling fish on, that sucks.
    Did you play it up like SHIP creek, yell extra loud "fish on", starting running around yelling "coming up or coming down" "Get out of my way" Where's the Net".

    Keep up the fishing and thanks for what you do.

    Sweet, at least you got to wet a line. What the heck kind of fish is that?

    Not many people can say they caught a fish in Iraq! Sweet bragging rights, there. Nice job.

    Looks like some sort of carp?

    Good stuff!! I spent 05/06 in South Korea and managed to catch a few Large Mouth. Next time I go to the sand box I'll bring my fishing gear. Stay safe!

    Good luck and keep going...I know that I was so happy to be pulling little bass out of stock ponds in Oklahoma when I was hanging with the field artillery...you'll be back here soon!
