NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A Labor Day weekend fishing trip was a reminder to me that there are a lot of similarities between fishing and investing -- and that lessons learned in fishing have application in investing.My son and I set out early Saturday morning on an 85-foot party boat with the hope of catching enough fluke to provide dinner for six that evening. It was indeed a great day for fishing, and the fluke and flounder were abundant. That's certainly not always the case.
