dreamin' of fishin'

Recommended Posts

I spent way too long tonight playing around with my rods and reels, especially the equipment recently bought that has yet to taste water and fish slime, to consider myself sane.

"Unfortunatly" I'm leaving for Peru for two weeks(won't be able to get in any fishing either! doh! Might be back next year though) and I keep wondering how I'm going to not go crazy without fishing for two weeks.

I guess I'll have to make do with seeing the girlfriend for the first in nearly two months wink

How do you guys keep from going crazy when life doesn't let you go fishing?

I have some on going health problems that have pretty much kept me off the ice this year and it may threaten my spring crappie fishing. mad But I do exactly what you do. I have spooled all my open water and ice rods with new line. I have cleaned and organized all my tackle and with so much time on my hands I've also been doing a lot more online shopping. The next thing on my list is the boat. I went out to the garage a couple weeks ago when it was 60 deg. and the boat needs some serious cleaning.

Thats exactly what I have been doing the last couple nights. And even a couple stops at the local bait shops for new gear.

Trolled the isles at Gander on Saturday, but left with the money still in my wallet. The one item I was looking for wasn't out on the shelf yet.

Good reason to go back smile

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
