fishing in the rain...

7 posts in this topic

in my experience fishing today in the rain would be one of the most misserable to be out. all your gear gets completely drenched...then the cold sets in. its usually a good walk back to the vehicle too.

in my younger days i did all that stuff. best of luck and all good wishes for anyone doing it today.

finally, in my life i have clear direction of goal for my future, thats to be living at mille lacs. im a ways into the transition but the logistics are complex and slow.

my brother told me "anyone can retire whenever they want. its just a matter of adjusting your living style." that comes up in thought often.

i look forward to the time when i can wake up in the morning and look out the window to see what the lake looks like that day... to be there, to fish whenever i want, where ever i want, for what i want (within the law).

city life and the corporate world is taking its toll on me. life is too short!

regards,

Yeah, unfortunately I can't go fishing if I don't work. Seems like an unfair trade to me. I definitely can't buy all the equipment I want...and let's face it, even if we have everything we need, we always want more. Yep, being a workin' stiff sucks. Although I've done my fair share of fishing in crappy weather, as I look out the window right now I'm not too depressed that I'm not out fishing. Let's just hope that when I'm retired and can do all the fishing I want global warming hasn't turned all of our lakes into mud bowls.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
