Method 1. Sneak up real slow and lie down on the log. Slowly ease your hand into the water and grab the fish by the tail.
Method 2. Light an M-80 and softly drop it into the water just inshore of the fish.
Method 3. Find a local kid with a stout cane pole, black line, and a worm and give him $10 to carch you that fish.
What the HE double toothpicks are you doing fishing in that God forsaken place!
