First time catching dinner! – Primera vez que pesco la cena!

Every time you pass a river in Tennessee you can see at least one or two fishing enthusiasts enjoying the outdoors. Actually, any place where there is some water and a possibility of catching fish you can see people hanging out with their fishing rods. I tried to fish in the past but never actually caught anything, and it was so long ago that I felt like I didn’t know anything…and that is the truth, I have no clue about fishing.

Cada vez que pasas un rio en Tennessee, puedes ver al menos uno o dos entusiastas de la pesca disfrutando del aire libre. La verdad, cualquier lugar donde hay agua y la posibilidad de pascar algo puedes encontrar gente pasando el rato con sus canas de pescar. Yo intente pescar mucho tiempo atras pero nunca atrape nada, y fue hace tanto tiempo que siento que no se nada….y esa es la verdad, no tengo idea de pescar.

But when you have a friend that is looking for a fishing partner, loves to fish, and doesn’t mind giving you a few tips and use his gear….fishing is on!! Our friend Matt was really eager to get out to enjoy his day off and enjoy the good weather while it lasts. He texted me to invite me to go fishing and I couldn’t say no.

Pero cuando tienes un amigo que esta uscando un companero de pesca, le encanta pescar, y no le importa compartir unos cuanto consejos y sus materiales de pesca…Vamos a pescar!! Nuestro amigo Matt tenia muchas ganas de salir a disfrutar su dia libre y del buen tiempo mientras dura. Me mando un mesaje de texto para invitarme a pescar y no podia decirle no.

The day was nice and we both had the day totally free, so after a stop at Bass Pro Shop to get some bait and a fishing license for me (Thanks so much Matt!) and another stop to get crickets, gas, and snacks, we headed to the Center Hill Lake dam. The water was slightly cold, but after a few minutes in it was great. There were several other people fishing and after a few casts I got my first little trout!

El dia estaba genial y los dos estabamos totalmente libre, asi que despues de un parada a comprar cebo y una licensia para pescar para mi (Gracias Matt!) y otra parada a comprar grillos, bencina, y algo para comer, nos fuimos a la reserva del lago Center Hill. El agua estaba un poco fria, pero despues de un ratito se sentia bien. Habia harta gente pescando y despues de un par de intentos pesque mi primera trucha!

There are several rules and regulations regarding what kind of fish you are allowed to keep, the number, and their weight. We weren’t looking to come back with a huge amount anyways, we mostly wanted to hang out and enjoy the relaxing outdoors. After catching quite a bit of small guys, Matt caught the biggest brown trout of his fishing career. It was a smart fish too because it ate his bait a few times before Matt was able to hook it. He was so excited to get it! It was a really good looking fish. So that was the icing on the cake, and shortly afterward we decided to go back home.

Hay varias reglas con respecto a que tipos de pez te puedes quedar, cuantos, y que peso. Nosotros no queriamos volver con un monton de pescado, solo queriamos pasar el rato afuera y disfrutar del aire libre. Despues de un buen rato atrapando peces chiquitos, Matt peco la trucha cafe mas grade de su “carrera”. Era un pez inteligente porque se comio el cebo varias veces antes de que Matt pudiera engancharlo en el enzuelo. Estaba muy contento! Era un pez bonito. Asi que esa fue la guinda de la torta, y al rato decidimos volver a casa.

The job wasn’t complete though; we needed to clean the fish and eat our dinner. So we came home and showed Leslie our trophies! Matt tried to teach me how to clean the fish but I sucked at it, so he did most of the work. (Thanks again Matt!) So after the meat was ready to go I dipped it in eggs, flour and to the skillet. The fish tasted awesome and it felt great to eat our fresh Tennessee trout.

El trabajo no estaba completo; necesitabamos limpiar el pescado y comer la cena. Asi que llegamos a casa y le mostramos a Leslie los trofeos! Matt intento ensenarme como limpiar el pescado pero no aprendi bien, asi que el hizo la mayor parte del trabajo. (Gracias Matt!!) Asi que despues que la carne estaba lista para ser pasada por huevo, harina, y al sarten. El pescado estaba buenisimo y se siente bien comer nuestra trucha fresca de Tennessee.

We didnt take that many pictures but here are some:
