Fishing items at work

21 posts in this topic

I was cleaning out my desk drawers this a.m. at work and came across some misc. fishing tackle ect. I have a rattling rap with a company logo on it, a 1/16th oz jighead and a snapswivel. Just wondering if any of you out there have inadvertantly dragged some of your hobby time into work with you laugh

My office is full of my fishing stuff. I have rolls of string, spare reels, spools, poles, tackle boxes. I mess around with it in slow times.

I have a couple pictures, Moore's bait & tackle hat (I work with Bob's wife), rapala thermos, startribune dotcom rapala and a fleet farm calendar that I just realized is still on July.

I bent over once at work and a bobber slipped out of my shirt pocket. Definitely a distraction.

I have a detailed map of my favorite lake on the wall in my office so I can plan my evening trip from my desk. I also keep a spool of line in my desk for practicing knot tying. I learned the "Uni-knot" while at work, and I really like that knot for connecting lines, like Flouro to fireline, or lead core to mono.

I think I also have a couple of map books to fiddle with when a network is unavailable.

I have the Lakemaster chip/disk loaded into my laptop here at work. It is great to view various spots on lakes when somebody mentions different bars, etc that I am not familiar with on that lake. Also, it is great to pre-plan a trip where you are going to fish first especially for ice fishing. Occasionally print out a map of the structure prior to leaving the office with the GPS coordinates marked on the map. This saves alot of time scouting when you get to the lake.

My work office is my truck. One day I sat on a rapala. Another I left the minnows in the back of the truck, didnt realise until the end of the day when they started stinkin. My work is always getting in the way of my fishing storage.

I work at home, so I have all my gear handy. I find fishing stuff in the pockets of every jacket I own (including my dressy ones), I cannot go into any room in the house without finding something fishing related. In the winter I keep a 5 gallon bucket in my master bathroom with an aquarium pump to keep my minnows alive.

I love the responses that have been posted so far! I would bet that there are other guys and gals that have also taken tackle to work and stashed it somewhere. I would love to have my laptop on my boat and be out on the water all of the time but alas, I work to go out and have fun so I have to be in each day. Glad to hear I'm not the only one that has tackle laying around the office! Loved the post about the FM site, like to hear what others have in the cubicale. I also am guilty of having a Forest lake map in my drawer, Mille Lacs and have been known to come in and set waypoints on my GPS for the trolling runs I want to do in the fall(guilty pleasure!) I have fishy photoes around right next to the family pics as well. Good to hear I'm not totally off base with my extracurricular activities!

Yeah, my Grandpa had one in his bedroom also. But believe me, it did not have minnows in it grin

    • We use ventless, but we have enough cracks in ours that we get plenty of fresh air  plus we don't sleep in ours.   I agree with the "door frosting shut" comment! . I do use a homemade "two 12v computer fans" contraption that moves the air around pretty good good, i just mount it above the furnace and it blows the rising heat down and to the sides.
    • I'd be more worried about height.   You might wind up hitting the roof quite a bit when you move your spear unless you hang it with the spear head in the water?   Might want to that out first.
    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.
