Fishing Report

Fishing on an empty stomach is something I've never experienced while fishing on the day after Thanksgiving. I always seem to have time to make turkey sandwiches the night before, or the morning of my trip. I find it interesting because most of the time I forget to pack a lunch. I usually have to buy something at the gas station, or hope that one of the guys I'm fishing with packed a big lunch. Interestingly, I came across an article that had nothing to do with fishing but had to do with hunger. It stated that when ...

Fishing Report

I recently overheard a few anglers talking about how making their hobby their job would be like not working at all. I used to think the same until I watched a very close friend of mine decide to make fishing his career. A job is a job, eventually there's going to be days when you'd rather be somewhere else. Unless a person is truly fortunate to work for themselves and can pick and choose when they want to work, all jobs have their challenges. For professional anglers driving around in an $80,000 dollar boat that's being ...
