I'm just curious what the age is of the users on this site. AT times I see the term " old fart" used and I wonder if I qualify. 56 years old and happy I made it this long. 50+ plus years of fishing. My father-in law doesn't post but he reads it every day and he's 80 and still goes fishing once a week and deer hunts in the fall. May all sportsmen no matter there age have a happy and blessed Easter.

When I was in my twenties I thought life could not get any better. Than in my thirties I thought this is it life just could not get any better. And now at 46 life is awesome I have the time and money to do just about anything I want and I have to believe that the fifties absolutely have to rock

44 here...and like Waterwolf, if just keeps getting better! Sure a lot different than when I was 17 and had exactly one Shad Rap to my name, hanging off an old glass rod powered by a Zebco 404.

Think I may welcome 45 at Gander Mountain....

38 here. My wife says I act like a 15 year old. Not sure if she means that in a good sense or not? wink.gif

Body aches and pains every morning I get up. Fishing makes up for it though.

23, just done with school and starting in the real world. I hope I can still manage to wet a line as often as I have in the past.

Thought I would take some "time" here and really think about how old I am.
approximately.....
1,387,584,000 seconds... or
23,126,400 minutes....or
963,600 hours...or,hmmmm, I stand corrected.. 385,440 hours is a better answer.
16,060 days... or
2,288 weeks...or
528 months... or really just about 44 years.
can't wait for my next 240 seconds or so on the lake.
hope I did my math right, anyone care to check?

      I went fishing for the final time this season yesterday.  It was not very good.  Its the latest I've fished in a season for many years though because its been so warm out.   I decided not to duck hunt again this season based on the lack of success I've had in recent years.  By the reports I've heard locally, I made the right decision.   Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.   I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.   I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...
