Fishing with Steve

So I may be on hiatus from my cooking hobby... I bought me a fishin' pole & decided to give it an honest try. I like the outdoors, low impact activities, and water.. what more could I ask for? If I get hooked, maybe I'll get myself an inflateable outboard dinghy & have some fun with that...

I fished as a kid with my uncle - but apparently forgot entirely how. Last week on my first day with my new rod, I went out to Paradise Beach & managed to tangle about 20 feet of lure without casting anything. So I figured I need to learn a few things... such as:

How to fish:

... and thanks to Google Maps (satellite view), I may have found a few good spots to try out
