How long before the novilty wears off???/

I know I might get some flack over this question but I so look forward to getting out on the boat in the early spring but now it seems like I can come up with any number of excuses not to go out. Gas price, to hot, to windy, to rainy, to cold.... the list goes on. I'm not lazy and I love to fish but for some reason it seems like every year about this time I just run out of ambition for fishin. Anyone else out there like me?

Try fishing evenings and at night. I have had done very well in the dog days of summer, fishing from 9pm-6 am. Less traffic, cooler, wind usually cuts off in the evenings, and the fish seem to like it as well!

I hear ya' on this one. This spring I had the itch and as soon as the pleasure boaters got out it was all over. It seems as though boating traffic is getting worse and worse every year. I have pretty much given up on going on the lakes during the day because of the amount of morons who decide to operate boats. I think something needs to be done with the license law on the water before that will change. Getting back on topic, I like going out into the evening as others have mentioned.....nothing better than a tranquil evening on the water underneath the stars.

Well I got the boat ready and out on the water prior to the walleye opener (first time in years) but only went out fishing on the boat for the first time, last week. Did manage to get a number of honey do's out of the way though. Life happens, sometimes you get the time to do what you planned on, sometimes you don't, sometimes you build a retaining wall, sometimes you go fishing. It's all good though.

A bad day on the water is better then a good day at work any day IMO. Yes the pontoons, jet ski's, tubers, ect can be a big ol pain in the rump but ill take it over work or laying by my dish any time. Fish early or late and ewe can take them all out of the picture and start enjoying the water again. jm2c

I wish I lost some ambition to get out and fish. Once the ice goes off I try get out on the lake everyday I have off. It really drives my wife crazy. When I am working all I think about is fishing. Maybe I have a problem.

CFD (Compulsive fishing disorder) is a disease has no cure, drugs have little effect on it. The disease may go dormant(Zoom I think you maybe in the dormant stage) at times but it will always be there. This disease is nothing to be ashamed of. Most everyone has it, some dont even know they have it.

To have support groups such as "Fishing Minnesota" helps us in dealing with this disease.

Now, who wants to say the serenity prayer.

Here is a post I put on the board a couple weeks ago that says about the same thing:

"Actually I find that my unsatisfied hunger for open water fishing (after sitting around all winter drooling about it) has worn off to a different level.

I've gone on a couple really nice trips and have caught some nice fish. Now, with the weather getting HOT (yuck!) I find I'm a little less interested in getting out. And besides, my "honey do" list was getting out of control eek

I know some of you guys will go out in just about anything, but for me May, June, Sept, and Oct are the months I enjoy fishing the most and I try not to let other things get in the way.

I'll still go out now if I get the chance, but I don't give it as high a priority as my prime months. Put another way, I don't neglect as much responsibility during the summer like I do during "prime time."

If I analyze this much, I start to think I have to much money tied up into something I only really enjoy doing 2 months a year. Sometimes I think perhaps I should sell the rig, buy a small car and either hire a guide occasionally, or go with one of 3 friends that have boats.

I guess cabin fever wears of about July. Trouble is it comes around every year.

I try to go out twice a week. Weather doesn't usually bother me as long as it's not lightening out. I either go out at six in the evening or six in the morning. That way I avoid a lot of morons on the water. Sometimes I go to smaller bodies of water as well. I never get enough, even in the dog days. If I'm not catching a lot, I still just love to be on the water.

I just got my first boat a month ago, so the greatness of the ability to go out anytime I want hasnt yet worn off.

Yeah I got out last night and with that big old moon up there It was hard to leave the lake by 12:30am. work comes early though so I had to. I Caught 1 small walleye and tons of rock bass and a few crappie.I didnt bring any fish home but it was fun and I'm glad I went. You guys sure know how to get a guy pumped up for fishing LOL. I think I might be haveing a relaps of (cfd). Thats one disease I dont want a cure for.

Spring is so busy (ya no getin out n doin stuff) with other things that this is the time of year that im itchin to be on the water. It's kinda my own priorities that make me so busy in the early season but now the novelty is wearing off of the (what previous posters are calling morons)fishermen harrassers it's time to get on the lake and RELAX!!

    • Here's how most of my Hunting and Fishing goes! 🤪  😆      
    • Good to see your report Dusty. I'll be headed up that way in a couple of weeks.
    • @Abndoc I hope your conversation with the Landowner goes well.   In my experience, the 85 year old landowner truly DOES believe there’s enough land for the two hunters and couldn’t possibly think of a reason why it wouldn’t be.  A 50 year old will always be a kid in her eyes but she may not have even met him personally.  He could be a friend’s or even a friend of a friend’s “kid”.  This is a remnant if the good old days of getting private land access.   Modern deer hunting teaches us to have as much control over as much ground as we can to be more successful, so some people really forget their place as a guest of the true landowner ( I know you’ve been around long enough to know this).    I’ve  personally seen these situations go both ways:  The landowner finds out there’s a conflict and either kicks the 50 year old out for being a Dick or kicks the 2nd hunter out, feeling bad that they [PoorWordUsage]ed off the first hunter.  It’s crazy!   I think you’re handling it pretty well since the season has started.  Let her know and let her decision be the final word, without pressure from you.  BUT encourage your boy to be the FIRST person to knock on her door before next season starts!  Then he can tell the 51 year old to [PoorWordUsage] off! 😁
    • Could you summarize for those us with a non video learning style?  Or you just looking for clix?
    • Hey what's wrong with katchup on a burger???🤕
    • I've caught a lot of big bass on spinnerbaits over the years and I wanted to share one simple tip that is often overlooked when fishing spinnerbaits or really any bait in general when targeting big bass.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-PDaV8byhw

    • Thanks for the info, I will give them a call.
    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season.
