It's been a long time

3 posts in this topic

Well, the day has finally arrived where I know when I wake up tomorrow I can finally feed my obsession once again. I, along with many of you, have been thinking and dreaming about fishing for way to long. Tonight I shall spend getting everything ready. I think it really helps to sit down with a pen and paper and come up with a checklist. I don't know about you guys, but I hate those "I can't belive I forgot that" moments.

Everyone just remember to be safe out there and, depending on the lake, be curtious and respectful to the crowds. I tend to get a little hyper when I get to the launch in the mornings, and when I have to battle a lot of boat traffic, but it's less stressful and way safer to just slow down and take it easy.

I just can't wait to see those fish in the shallows. Spawning or setting up to spawn. I ussualy leave them alone, but I will throw a bait on their bed to try and make them bite sometimes. I think this year will be a great year for people to hone in their sight fishing. You don't have to set the hook and pull a fish off its bed to prove to yourself you could catch it! Sometimes its more rewarding to know that you got what you wanted from the fish and the fish can get what it wants!

Good luck to all and be safe out there!

    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
