dreamin' of fishin'

6 posts in this topic

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

    • interesting. whitefish are normally a bit bigger. I have had them in the smoker at the same time and love them both. I fillet the fish and smoke with the skin on. maybe why they taste the same?   love them

    • While the memes and banter is entertaining, at some point the rubbers gotta meet the road and the party in charge right now has to show they have the maturity and the vision to lead the country.  So, at this point and into the future I ask the resident Republicans to show me why they were the right choice and to demonstrate the way they would expect everyone else to behave by doing so themselves.
