Nemo does not give up easily though and fearlessly decides that he must jam the tank filter to delay being taken out. This would help the fish find time to concoct a plan for Nemo to escape, one tankfish even states, “You have your whole life ahead of you.” (Stanton, Unkrich, x:xx). This scene shows that Nemo is willing to be brave in order to achieve a greater outcome. In fact, even old-timer tank-fish Gill says to Nemo, “That took guts, kid.” (Stanton,Unkrinch, x:xx) Towards the end of the story, Nemo’s courage is tested once again when an immense school of fish swim towards Nemo and Marlin’s friend Dory. Suddenly, a net comes and captures all the fish, including Dory. Nemo tells his dad, “I know what to do, we must tell all the fish to swim down together!’ Stanton (x:xx) Marlin tells his son that he does not want to lose him again.

To begin, in chapter 1, Julian decides to try to catch the big fish by himself instead of letting his father of brothers do it. On page 7 Julian thinks to himself, “If the fish has the bait in its mouth and I don’t set the hook, he might just spit it out. Maybe I should
As near as I could imagine, an unknown I wanted to think, and I needed to develop a couple of strategies. If I nibbled at this bait, I wanted to ensure I could avoid the hook it certainly must conceal.

The Indian, who hadn’t said a word, walked over with his quiver of arrows and bow to compare. “This not Cherokee arrow. Arrow of Lakota. Sioux bad Indians, kill everyone. Kill our people, white men, Mandan, Pawnee, Chocktaw, everyone. All hate and fear the Lakota.” Alma noticed Luke had the gun
My brother hopped out and got a few rods and a tackle box out. “Come on, Jay is already at the end,” he said as he rushed to the entrance and paid 18$ for both of us to fish until 7 the next morning. I stepped onto the pier and was shocked to see so many people of all ages, sizes, races. The pier was old and worn out, creaking with each careful step I took. The shine of the moonlight reflecting off the pier and the water gave the pier a somewhat scary but welcoming feeling. We walked down to the very end and met up with Jay. He had a giant cooler filled with squid and other types of fish to use as bait, and a gigantic battle rod. “What’s up man?” Mitchell exclaimed and hugged Jay. “Ready to try to teach this little one how to fish?” my brother laughed as they both looked at me awkwardly standing there not knowing what to do. It was around six at night and the pier was still pretty packed, but people were starting to pack up and
A fisherman, sitting in his boat, distraught by why he hasn’t caught a single fish. He sits there as one, two and three hours pass but not even a nibble. He’s tried all that he can but it seems as if nothing wants to work. He has gone so far past his boiling point that he goes to shore to grab some rocks and he starts throwing them at his bobber, harder and harder as each one goes by, harder and harder as each minute ticks by. That’s when it happens, he finally decides to give up, if only he would have waited though, he could have had the biggest catch in his life.

While other fishermen reel in boatloads of fish, the old man is lucky to feel so much as a tug on his line. He spends some time fishing with a young boy, but after months of bad luck, the boy’s parents no longer allow him to fish with the old man. It is for this reason that he decides to journey far out into the sea, aiming to catch a fish so huge it renders the other fishermen speechless. After venturing miles away from the course, the old man finally feels the pull of a large fish on his line; so large, in fact, that he does not have the strength to reel it in. However, he is determined to capture it no matter how long it takes, telling himself, “You better be fearless and confident yourself, old man” (Hemingway 84). He does his best to remain strong and optimistic throughout his time at sea. With much patience, he allows the marlin to guide his boat through the rippling waves of the ocean for days on end. When it finally tires out, he is able to kill it and reel it in, leaving an accumulation of blood in its place. Knowing this could mean trouble, he begins to head back to shore as quickly as possible, blood trailing behind him. To his dismay, despite his efforts to avoid them, the sharks sense the blood in the water and approach his boat. Each time a shark appears, he is eventually able to fight it off, but not before it can take a portion
They sat down trying thinking of a way to get off the island. It made it a lot harder when there was a giant great white shark lingering around in the water. Suddenly a big boat drove by. “Wait a minute...is that a fisherman? Chase! I think we found our way home!” Peyton threw his fist in the air with an impelling force.

Fishing is an activity I have enjoyed doing ever since I was a little kid. In fact, one of my first fishing voyages was with my grandpa when I was about eight years old. He was an avid fisherman who went fishing almost every day and knew everything there was to know about fishing. Grandpa got me hooked on fishing. After Grandpa died, my dad picked up where Grandpa left off. We had a pontoon, and Dad took my brothers and me fishing whenever we had the chance. To this day, I still love fishing just as much as I had on my first fishing trip with my grandpa. Many people enjoy hobbies that are relaxing and peaceful, and others prefer exhilarating activities that never have a dull moment. I enjoy fishing because it has some of both.
