CAMPBELL, Ohio — It’s not the first time Mike and AnnMarie Fisher have caught their breath after spending time in the river.
They’ve had to do it hundreds of times, and they’ve never stopped.
It’s just one of the many moments in their lives when they’ve enjoyed a moment they’d never had before.
It took all of four years for Mike and his wife, AnnMarie, to start fishing on Lake Erie in the spring of 2016.
The pair was looking to take some time away from their busy lifestyles and make the family time they could.
“We didn’t have much money,” AnnMarie said.
“So we were going to go fishing.”
The couple had been fishing with their family in Lake Erie for almost 10 years.
But in April 2016, they realized their fishing gear had run out.
They decided to spend the next few weeks in the Ohio River, where the water was more plentiful and the water quality was better.
They made their way to the river to fish, and the next day they were there.
The couple thought it would be fun to catch some fish with their bare hands.
They hooked some small bluegill and trout and set up a line to bait.
They caught the first couple of fish, a couple of flounder, but they soon realized their line wasn’t strong enough to reel in the big fish.
“I think the only reason it worked is because we just hooked the first fish and that was a big one,” Mike said.
The fish were still alive when AnnMarie got up to her knees and began to feel dizzy.
“I didn’t think I was going to make it,” she said.
She quickly checked her phone to see if her husband was on Facebook and then looked up the name of the boat they had been on.
“It was a brand new boat.
We had just been out fishing for a couple hours,” Ann Marie said.
She grabbed the handle and began fishing with the line.
The fish began to swim in her hand.
AnnMarie felt dizzy and quickly began to run back to her husband.
She said she grabbed the boat, but it was too heavy for her.
“We started to feel really dizzy,” she recalled.
“It was very, very scary.”
The boat, which they named the Big Grog, was the only boat in the area that Mike and the Fishers were fishing.
Ann Marie caught a few fish, but she was very tired.
She was hoping for a better result.
“My husband was so glad we did the boat,” she remembered.
“He said, ‘Oh, my God, this is going to work.'”
The next day, they caught another big fish and began the process of putting the boat in storage.
The Fishers had been planning to use the boat for the next two years, but after many months of planning and preparation, the boat was finally ready to go.
They didn’t know the outcome when they got back to their camp.
But Ann Marie told them about the big grog and they immediately knew they were ready to start catching fish again.
They started fishing on the boat and had caught their first big trout on April 25.
They had been catching trout for about five years when the Fisher’s family had purchased the boat.
Mike Fisher said he knew his wife was ready to do what was best for the family.
“She’s been fishing for about two decades,” he said.
They were going fishing on a day off, and she was in the process when she got the call that her husband had caught his first big fish.
“She was able to take the fish home, but Ann Marie Fisher said she was afraid the fish might be poisonous.
Ann said she had to take it to the veterinarian, who diagnosed her husband with a rare disease called a gill tumor.
The family, which is from the nearby town of Westmoreland, had already been fishing on boats that were too heavy to be used as a boat for their family for nearly 10 years, Mike said, but the Fisher was able in April of this year to take off the boat entirely.”
The boat is now in storage,” Ann said.
They were able to use it to fish again and they were able make plans to take a trip to Lake Erie next month.
The Fishers are planning to spend a few days in Lake Tahoe in July when they’ll return to the lake, Mike explained.
They’ll also visit their family again, which will be a “very special experience.”
The family plans to visit Lake Taho again next month and return to their family camp.”
This time I’m really happy that I caught the big one.”
The family plans to visit Lake Taho again next month and return to their family camp.
The new Fisher family plans on fishing for at least five more years, and it will be fun for the entire family.
