Fishin Hole

  Anybody addicted to fishing will tell you, its the heart pounding adrenaline rush you get when a lunker hooks on and starts making the drag sing that keeps them coming back for more. Hell, when I see tail dances and high flying acrobatics I forget what day it is, I just hope the day doesnt end.  There is more to the story though, and as they say --a bad day fishing beats a good day working. Where else could you not accomplish your goal and still feel satisfied? I have a 15 foot SeaNymph aluminum bowrider with an old 1963 28 horse Johnson on the back, and it is the most valued possession I have. There is no better time spent then with my wife and kids on the water.

  There is no REAL need for ultra-fancy, expensive equipment either. Sure theres fishing rods that cost over 250 dollars, and reels that go for over 300. They arent going to catch more fish than a cheap rod and reel in the hands of a dedicated angler though, and I can guarantee you the fish dont care how much youve spent on your gear. You can still have a great time without it costing a ton of dough.

  An added bonus is the relative ease in which the inexperienced can get into the fun. Its not like it takes a ton of practice or knowledge to land a bass, and the amount of different lures and baits that can be used makes it even easier to accomplish. Anybody can get their hands on a few worms in the back yard and head off to the H2O for some action. Theres plenty of panfish to catch as well, and its hard to NOT catch a sunfish or perch in most places. My youngest daughter was 5 when she caught a 6 pound largemouth bass, and the smile she had was absolutely priceless. Im surprised at how many kids dont even go fishing nowadays.

  While out on the water I find it easy to be relaxed no matter what the fishing is like, mingling with the loons and ducks.  If Im out in the boat or standing on shore by myself, I always take the time to just enjoy my surroundings. Watching the Eagles cruise around swooping down to snag a fish is reward enough to be out there. The sight of the hillsides speckled with the colors of early October leaves is just the icing on the cake.  Most days fishing are damn near perfect if you ask me.

Many people dont get to see that type of thing, and I wonder why they dont grab a pole and just go fishing.

 Good books that keep you entertained are good to find, and if you like all things nautical with plenty of action you should look into anything written by Clive Cussler. You may have seen the flick 'Sahara' starring Matthew McConaughy, Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz that was adapted from a Cussler novel, but it was lacking because the books are twice as in-depth.

  I would recommend picking up 'Inca Gold', or 'Flood Tide' as page turners for the sea faring, history-infused-with-action addicts. Any one of Cusslers books would be a good read though. You would be surprised at how much is packed into his novels, and how much of an enjoyment they are. He has written in the ballpark of 33 books to choose from as well.

Welcome to the hands down, worst blog ever created. This is,  for all intents and purposes, a social experiment that will probably prove absolutely nothing. LOL 

Just was thinking I HAD to have a blog because its the new hip thing at CBS.
