Instead of standing by the pond and getting hit by the extreme heat we pulled my fathers truck with the air conditioning blasting and cast our fishing poles from the window.
My father and I have always had a tradition of going fishing with each other every weekend during the summer. We have been doing it ever since I can remember and it has been by far one of my favorite things about the summer season. It’s always pretty hot and humid during the summer due to us living in the deep south, but this past summer was one for the ages. There were many days where the temperature would reach far past 100 degrees fahrenheit and it was so hot that the news was asking for people to stay indoors until the sun started to set in the evening and spend time outside only if you have to. We still wanted to have our fishing time though, so my dad and I thought of a genius plan. Instead of standing by the pond and getting hit by the extreme heat we pulled my fathers truck with the air conditioning blasting and cast our fishing poles from the window. This ensured that we were staying plenty cool while also being able to reel in and fish properly. We weren’t sure how successful we were going to be with it but we ended up being able to catch a record number of fish that summer. It was pretty amazing to enjoy some fresh air conditioning and sit in a comfortable seat while fishing. Unless my dad is against it, I think that for the upcoming summers we will add fishing in the car with the a/c on full power to the yearly tradition.
