THIS is an acceptable off topic, but rather normal subject.

I enjoy fishing. I have 2 rods that I can use.

Anyone been fishing recently?

I don't fish, but I know how to crab and cast-net shrimp.

Just really haven't had time to do either.

last Thursday when I got home from work, it was really nice.
so we tried out a new fishing spot.
it was nice to look at.
but it was full of chiggers.
and the fish weren't interested in anything I cast out.

The wife went fishing last week with one of our friends. They caught a crab on the line but lost it. They asked me to come with later in the day so I could cast net shrimp, but I ended up staying home because both my nets have huge holes in them.

Well, back to forum cleaning. 8)

I have been known to wet a line (although not since this time last year) I have several fresh water rods and a beach casting rod.

River fishing around here is extremely dangerous. The section of the river Thames running through the city of Oxford is called the ISIS!

I don't want to risk being kidnapped over a couple of perch!

I caught myself Sunday night.
while trying to organize stuff in the shed,
the fishing poles collapsed on me,
and I got a handful of hooks.
OW. :(

OUCH!

Maybe they thought you were a fish...

Or the ghosts of the fish caught in the past came back to snag you to a watery grave with them.

Please forgive my ignorance, but aren't there Trolling Motors for fishing boats?

Yep, I can eat my fish raw if I want to. Not squeamish about that. Soy sauce, wasabi, and eat, yum!
It's only bait when it goes on the hook! :lol:
