Ambush fishing
By Lonnie Bennett


August 27, 2007

I have always enjoyed fishing the bridge. I take my eleven year old son to fish the bridge. Like other fathers before and children have fished the bridge. We don't need an expensive boat. A bicycle works just fine. People come from far as wide, they buy a license for the day, and rent a pole from across the street. For some fishing in Alaska, even if it is from a bridge, and for a humpy, is a dream come true. And yes, in the excitement in catching a fish, a youth will want to get his hook back in the water as soon as possible, and there is blood, guts, fish eggs, and fishing line. This is a sign of a good fishing hole. And a hell of a lot of fun.

So perhaphs the things that needs to be done, is steps on each corner of the bridge leading to the water. This will prevent injury of crawling down on wet rocks. Accessible cleaning table at the bridge. And maybe the guy complaining so much, should grab a pole and come have some fun to. And Mr. Webb, perhaps if you are so worried about being run over by a horse, run faster.
