Getting thwacked by a monster is just part of being a fisherman

When it comes to fishing, many of you might think of a character like Tom Sawyer sitting on the banks of the Mississippi with a straw hat, cane pole and the sound of cicadas just a-clickin' in the trees. I think just about anyone who grew up fishing has his or her roots firmly planted in this image. Remember as a kid watching that red and white striped bobber slowly sink out of sight and after a short fight pulling up your first 6-inch brim? I do. Well, let me tell you folks, fishing is not as gentle a sport as it is cracked up to be.
