The Bait

By Joline
This is the little minnow that is used for bait. Sometimes they are larger, but because we were to close to shore we thought that the smaller fish would be the target. Hope this doesn't bother any weak stomachs....

This is so sharp!!

What fish would you normally catch with a minnow, Joline?

This is great, Joline - a very fine capture of this tiny silver minnow, and good use of the hands to show the scale (no pun intended!).

Great capture showing the item used to attract the fish. Nice use of the hands to show size.

Hi Joline,
This is so fasinating...you just don't normally see them all on their own.
A wonderful candid shot.

This is an interesting series Joline. Good detail and the red shirt sets it off well.

Very interesting shot.

A good catch Joline - I mean the picture of course! I like how you have focused on the fish and hands, but we can still read "Maine", so you are promoting your state too!

Heh, this looks like a great shot on its own. I can see the caption "Fisherman's eye's bigger than catch!".
