Fishing Report

Having a week off from work couldn't have come at a more perfect time. Aside from a few gusts of wind, an occasional sea lion, and a little rain, my time out on the water has been great. I've been fishing mostly by myself, which has been just what the Dr. ordered. As the work year for me is beginning to wind down, there's been a lot of time to reflect on a lot of things. Mostly, I'm thankful for having such an understanding spouse. I'm definitely not a marriage expert but at the beginning ...

Fishing Report

How much is too much? Recently while watching a video of a well-known professional angler, he mentioned how important the right equipment was in using the bait he was demonstrating. Being a good student, I had my note pad out and wrote down all the model numbers and baits that he was using. After, I went online and searched for the rod and reel that he was using. The total price for the rod and reel was over $1000! I'm just as bad as the next guy who spends too much on his hobby at times but paying that ...
