Brodie and his uncle Ben celebrated 4 July by going on fishing. It was a special day for the 11-year-old boy who had got a new fishing rod a few days ago only. No doubt, Brodie was very excited about testing his fishing rod. His uncle was going along to teach him the nitty-gritty of fishing. It was indeed a great day to go for an outing. They went to Lake Hartwell for their fishing trip. Believe it or not, the boy caught something very unexpected only on his first day. It was not a fish but something that made them call the authorities immediately.
A Typical Trip
Brodie Brooks is an 11-year-old boy who loves fishing. It was because of his love for the game his family planned a fishing trip on 4 July. This time was going to be fun as the boy for the first time was making a fishing trip with older boys in the family. To top it all off, Brodie had received a new rod as a gift. This trip provided him the perfect opportunity to test it.
Lake Hartwell is an artificial reservoir situated in the border of Georgia and South Carolina on the Tugaloo, Seneca, and Savannah rivers. Till today, Lake Hartwell happens to be southeast’s most famous and largest lakes. This lake is formed by Hartwell Dam situated on the Savannah River. The lake is good for fishing and doing other interesting work.
Brodie along with his uncle set out with their boat in Lake Hartwell, South Carolina. The man was excited to take Brodie on one of the most memorable adventures of his life. It was a sunny day and the water on the lake was clean and transparent.
The duo began to wait after casting their fishing rods into the water. They were hoping to catch a big fish this time. After dipping the rod into the water, they sat back in their boat and began chatting. The weather was very pleasant that day.
Bringing It In
Ben Myers wanted it to be a great experience for Brodie. He taught the boy many techniques for fishing. He taught him how to attach bait and also showed him how to bend the reel into the lake to get the right angle to do the fishing in the best way. Ben had no expectation from Brodie as this was the first time his nephew was doing it.
However, his perception soon changed when the young boy began shouting that he actually had found something. However, his face got discolored when he pulled out the object. Ben was surprised as he had never expected him to trap something this huge.
