Tackle Box Troubles
Fish Tale #2: Bucky Bucktail & Tommy Topwater
About the Book
Another fishing season for the lures in Tackle Box Troubles has finally arrived! Bucky Bucktail, Francis Frog, Sammy Spinner, and Suki Suick are ready for amazing fishing adventures on the large lake. This summer, Musky Ike, Tommy Topwater, and Big Jake join in the fishing fun! Which lure is going to catch the longest fish from the deep, murky, cold water? Trouble starts for the fishing lures when Tommy Topwater, an experienced chopper lure, is cast too high over the water and becomes tangled up in power lines. The fisherman cuts the fishing line away from the reel, leaving Tommy Topwater hanging high above the water. Realizing every cast from the fishing rod puts the lures in serious trouble, Sammy believes fishing is too dangerous a sport for him. By sharing two stories about Bucky Bucktail and the trouble he survived during his time on the boat, the other fishing lures try to reassure Sammy that Tommy can indeed be rescued from this trouble. Will Tommy Topwater be rescued and returned to the tackle box this summer? Or will he be stuck spending a frigid winter outdoors in the Northwoods?
