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

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
