Fishing Perfect [8.19.2010]

Sometimes a fishing story is about more than just the fish. Rick Jackson is a prize winning fisherman. He takes his dad out fishing every year on his dad's birthday. One day when the two were out fishing, they caught bigger and better bass than either one of them had ever seen. Rick's a serious fisherman and he couldn't make sense of it, until he realized they were fishing on the anniversary of his younger brother's accidental death. Also in this episode, Kenny and Jamie Deason wrote in with their contribution to our "Your Story" file. They had lived in San Francisco for a year, helping kids and scraping by on money they made from selling bicycles. They decided it was time to return to their hometown, Oklahoma City. With only a few possessions and $20 in cash, they began their journey from California to Oklahoma - on homemade bicycles.
