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.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
