guess I don't know how to fish anymore
« on: 04/22/14 15:29 UTC »
Guess I don't know how to fish anymore.  Took my mom out for a trip to the lake today but we didn't catch a fish. >:(  But the wind out of the north and a cold front yesterday didn't help much.  But it was good to spend a day out with mom.  First time she has been fishing since Dad passed in 2006.  Just wish she had a better fishing guide! :o
God Bless!

I avoid, like the plague, fishing the day of or the day after a front.  Minimum, soonest, 2 days after.  3 days after is better.  You may be rusty, but You ain't broke.

Just gotta go when I can.  Spend all my time at the store keeping baits in stock so everyone else can go fishing! ::)

Aw yeah.  Ya got'ta handle business.  I get skunked on a regular basis (more times than not) when I fish Lake Okhissa, but I enjoy fishing, being out there.  You got to spend some time, as well.  You didn't forget, Bro...the fishin' was tough.  Soon.

A few hours or a couple on the water, fish or no fish, is like a balm for me. While I enjoy the heck out of catching and like a meal of fresh crappies or walleyes once in a while, fishing has gotten real "inward" with me.

Yeah I had a good time just being out with mom.  Miss fishing with Dad.  Came home and poured up some thumper and swim Fry's with some remelts.  Orange over yellow.  Good crappie color here at times.  Getting better at laminates.  Good day all around.
God Bless!

 Buddy you do that in Ohio and you'll never get to fish. Good for you on taking your mom out. My mom passed away one Easter afternoon. Now every Easter I go fishing in honor of her. This Easter was pretty nice at 71. Not always the cass in pass years.
