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.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
