I better fish hard while I can!

8 posts in this topic

I just found out today that I need to have shoulder surgery. July 28th, so I am going to have to fish hard until then, because it sounds like a rather painful recovery. It is going to kill me to have to "fish" through the forums only for a while. But I am already concocting ideas as to how I can managed to fish while I am handicapped, like cast with my left arm and switch the reels on my rods around so I can reel with the other right arm, and do all of the big motions with my good arm. Oh well, atleast close to 5 years of nagging pain is finally solved and hopefully will be taken care of. After recovery, though, the fish better watch out!!

In the meantime I have three flathead trips planned for within the next week, so I guess I will get them when I can hopefully.

Rotator cup surgery? I have had both done and its wasn't too bad but the recovery time is a little bit.

No not rotator, a torn labrum. Plus hyperextension of ligaments.

A torn labrium isnt as bad as the rotator cup, shorter recovery time!

I guess according to him, the tear isn't the part that will be so bad, but the "reconstruction" of the shoulder capsule. Atleast that's what the Dr. said. Although, I am not looking forward to having titanium anchor screws drilled into my bone either!

You'll never feel it Andy. Your a tough dude. You should be fishing about the same time I am.

Naw man you will be like me. I've got screws and every other thing in my leg from jumping in a night mission. You should back up in no time flat. You'll just need to start with channel and work you way back up to flats. Think of it as rehab, the best kind you can get.

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
