Fishing items at work

Recommended Posts

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 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 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

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
