Would you fish every day if you could?

I wouldn't. I think it would become such drudgery that I'd end up hating it after about a month.

Well, I wouldn't just do the same type of fishing day after day, that would eventually get boring. But there are SO many kinds of fishing and places to go...if I could afford it, I have no doubt I could fish everyday!

I'd flip my job around! Fish Monday - Friday and then take the weekends off to do whatever.

Like was said, if I could afford it (and not have to work), I'd fish 5 days out of the week, easy! Not quite all year long though. Gotta hunt, see other family, take other vacations too. smirk.gif

Not everyday. I also like to hunt, and spend time with the family.

I could easily fish every day at least for some portion of the day. I would not be up for a full 8 hrs every day though.

I would have to figure out what to do on vacations then though..... grin.gif

Could I fish every day just as a hobby...

Nah probably not... Not until like my retirement years when I plan to retire on a lake with a nice cabin etc... And then it's one of those, go out fishing after breakfast, for an hour as part of a daily routine.

I could make my career fishing related though...

Something like say own a small Restaurant/Fishing resort somewhere... My Fiance/wife (Who used to be a gourmet chef) could run the Cafe, and I'd guide...

It would have to be the right lake etc... And would need to be a lake region, like a chain with some variety.

Then as a side way to make money I'd write about fishing, and either become a Correspondent for one of the mags, or just start my own website with a subscription news letter...

(I keep massive amounts of research & Obseravtion in a journal already, which after spending 250-400 hours a year on the water, it's got to have some info worth money!)

I there was a big enough bank account, I could fish atleast a small portion of every day. If I had all fuel, lodging, bait, tackle and all bills at home I would be on the water forever.

I'd like to say I would, but I'm with Questor on this one, I think after a period of time it would start to lose its shine. I would like to have the ability to fish when I think the conditions are perfect, just hook up and go. Nothing iritates me more than being able to go on saturday but the perfect day was thursday, especially if a retired friend went on thursday and told me how great it was. Then I go on Saturday and have just a so-so trip. Drives me crazy!!!

I think if you fished every day the " Specialness " would wear off after while . So I wouldn't fish every day but wouldn't it be great to be able go fishing when ever I " wanted " .

My first year of teaching in NE Iowa, I fished every single day in june and july, I got bored really quick (after twon months that is). I had no boat so I was wading in trout streams and walking the bank of the Upper Iowa and the mississippi shore fishing. Needless to say I spent a lot on bait and beer, ate so much fish in those two months that I can't really stand to eat trout and salmon too for that matter, more than once or twice a year. We got pretty creative in how we cooked our fish as well, Grilled catfish in the rain, now that was a fun one......I am sure I missed a couple days that summer due to weather, but I remember fishing basically every single day.

would I do it again if I could, YES. I own a boat now, that opens things up a lot more

If I could move to the wilderness permanently, ala "Alone in the Wilderness", yes, I would love to (on both accounts)! But if I'm still here in civilization, there's too many other people, places and things I enjoy, too.

Point being, if my life was outdoors, and my job was simply just to live and ponder the existence of me and the world around me, I would enjoy fishing every single day of the rest of my life.

I think the best measure of whether you are fishing enough or too much for your soul is how you feel about "one more cast" on a given outing. If you are out fishing, and going through the mental routine of packing up to go home imparts anxiety and sadness, schedule more fishing!!! grin.gif If it makes you think "today was great, I can't wait to get out again" I'd say you are in the happy place! grin.gif If you think "jeezus, can we just get the h3ll out of here already", you probably need to change fishing partners. grin.gif

I am too young and have way too many different hobbies to limit myself to fishing everyday. Isn't that what retirement is for? At least that Is what my interpretation of it is. For them every day of the week is Saturday. LOL

(only 30 years to go... frown.gif)

Not everyday, but two out of three days I could fish! I spend about one month to six weeks a year fishing every day, trying new lakes, new spots, looking and finding. Could I fish one place every day? No way. At the rate I am going I will be able to retire at 111 years old grin.gif so I'm getting in what I can now! I fish alone a lot of days and there are some that it feels like I skipped school and no one else did! Fall has me hunting fishing hunting fishing... I get the " I'm really getting tired of this"come about Dec.

Every day might be a bit tough... As a teacher, I have my summers off, and I do a pretty good job to fish 5-6 days a week. I usually stay off the water on Saturday unless I have a tournament. I hate the huge crowds and get a tad impatient at boat landings at times.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.
