has always been. and will always be, do as fuck.
she 17 or so
mgoing fishing with my dad in a area down the river
sup at dawn to paddle down in our old canoe
was brings a 122 Winchester lever action "dost in case"
I’ -get there around a: or so
swater‘ s only afoot or so deep in some places
slots of reeds everywhere
set times it gets so dense and the river gets so narrow that you can touch the reeds from the middle of the river
and I are floating in this shaded area that fish was with big willows on both sides of the river
st get a bite
siesta like a trig one
setter about 2 seconds of tension on the line, it goes limp
steel in the line. expecting a broken line or a fish dead from a heart attack
spinsters I get a [ure/ hook. that' s bit clean in half
st show it to dad, he thinks it might be a snapping turtle or something
Hm not so sure
Fast a couple of hours
sws don' t catch much of anything
sthis is weird because this is normally a prime fishing spot. you can practically scoop them out of the water
soothing this time. other than that first bite
was decides it' s time to go back
sws grab our paddles, start back
allmost immediately hit something
s" Huh. I didn' t know there was a rock there. Guess it' s libertine than normal. Push off of it, anon. I can' t reach"
sgo to push off of it with my pa dole
swaddle seems to sink in s bit
like mud covered in grass, or that cornstarch and water stuff
to get off of it
silance behind us as we get under way
sees a grassy/ mut.: ldy looking hump sink into the water
to see the hump out of the. corner of my eye most of the way back
ttention it to my dad
she goes pale
seam me to describe it to him
she immediately paddles straight for shore and pulls the canoe up as well
the .22 and starts scanning the water
m weirdst out
Dad, what' s going on?"
soon, there are some things M rather notes in the water with.‘
as minutes later
think it' s gone. Slide the canoe back in the water, will ya?"
one end into the water
agree the and to keep it from floating away
dustep one of moffet into it. about to stuff back in
at hearth's sound that' s a cross between a crunch and a snapping, grinding noise.
Merst E) inches of the canoe is gone
vmy dad starts screaming
GET EACH HERE AMEN AND GET DOI/ ."
back onto. land. fuckage canoe
senor BAM one BAM
was fires wildly into the water where the bit of canoe used to be
st guess the thing was almost on the surface because a bit of blood floats up
sdo es n' t look like fish blood. looks almost cres nihlus
swell. snort. looks like we' re walking home ,
of a bitch.
repick up all our stuff and head back
swaths of the way there, we some across this inlet/ stream thing that branches the main river
saloons pretty deep. water itself is only we feet wide. really wide banks
st try to step down onto the bank tstump across
smy foot sinks about 2 feet in
to pull both my foot and shoe out
skooks like we' re wading then
ffind a piece of backchat isn' t soft as fuck
sated wading across
CHUMP AT 3 ) LOCK
st yell outta my dad, we both starter doubletake it'
statt starts firing at it
skews hitting it, but no visible effect
st manage to get out, throw our shit on the ground, pull my dad op behind me
swe scramble up off the bank and Dad keeps firing atthe hump
it moves; forward and up the bank
sdad runs out of ammo
sit gets just allele bit out of the water
smoke like a_ hippo in a ghillie suit
sehen it opens its mouth
smoking row after retry of sharpness teeth. like a shark
stranger legs, looks almost like croc legs
at us and then sinks back into the water
We made it back home without: incident, but we were both shitting our pants.
We there again. incidentally
