Header Competition # 26 - Sports

The header theme this week by Tom and is "Sports". Mac,TomDarlaMarthaGail's Man and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week.

My sport is fishing and Tom was kind after all my travels to make it an easy post. I showed this Large Mouth Bass before but this is a second photo. Note the line wrapped up in hook on the plug.
Mr. Wiskers was quite the fighter. A 2009 Fish Ohio Channel Catfish.

This was a fish that bit off more then it could chew. Mr. Crappie tried to swallow this Bluegill whole in one bite. To think my wifes says I eat too fast. 

This was my 2009 Fish Ohio Walleye from Lake Hodgson.

The beauty of the lake can be seen in the early morning. I enjoy the sport of fishing and also the beauty of nature.

My final choice was trolling across Lake Hodgson in the morning light.

Stunning Header... and a sporting post to make me jealous... I have done the odd bit of sea fishing and really enjoyed it... there's a lot of fly fishing in these parts for trout and that as always 'caught' my attention.

I knew it!!

Nice tranquil scene, with the sun going down.

And it is the perfect selection. My dad was quite the fisherman, too, and your blog brings back lots of memories for me. ~karen

Beautiful photos - now why did I have the idea that you just might chose fishing ;-)

Gaelyn said...

I like the crappie eating the bluegill, and the sunrise. Very subtle use of sport in the header with the fishing pole. But it's your sport.

Terrific Tom.... Yours is the BEST I think... I can tell how much of a passion you have for fishing. That is SUPER.

Good Luck.

Walleye makes for really good eats. I've caught and cooked my own just once. The in between part was done by someone much more experienced than I.

Beautiful photos, one and all.

Very nice fishes!!!

The last picture is just awsome.

Congratulations on your win -- it's a great header photo. The other photos verify your claim to the title 'Fishing Guy'. All are wonderful.

Rose said...

That crappie shot makes me laugh!!! I did not know they were such pigs!

Mary said...

Some great fish there! I'd say you are a successful fisherman (although for some catching isn't what makes it successful, right?) With all the beautiful places you have to fish, I can see why you want to be out on the water.

Some great fishing photos here, I like that ravenous fish trying to swallow the other fish whole, what a greedy fish!

Lanny said...

What a sport when you get to see scenes like that last one. I like the fast eating fish, reminds me of someone, someone I've known all my life!

Tipper said...

Great header-love all the fish photos. I eat too fast too : )
