Fishing (Part 1)

Before I begin it should be known that fishing is something I could not live without! Real true hardcore fisherman/ and women are an elite group that earn this title. We do welcome new members that have stepped up and proven to be in this group.

Before I decided to bash and attack fishing I was hesitant for a few seconds until I realized that I’m not attacking fishing, I’m attacking certain people that consider what they do as fishing. It will be more directed to people that think a fishing pole and tackle box makes them a fishermen. I will work my way through each method of fishing and pointing out the fake fishing people and the effect it has on me, and others who are out to fish not recreational outdoor activity during nice weather.

NOODLING

     I have chose to leave all freshwater types of fishing alone for now with the exception of one. The cat fishing method called noodling. The method used requires a person to enter muddy murky water and search for underwater holes in which a catfish may be residing in. Once the hole of choice has been selected than the person reaches into the hole blindly in hopes that a catfish is there and bites onto the hand of the noodling person in which gives them the ability to grab and extract the fish. Originally i was convince this drunken stupidity could not be fishing. Now I’m not sure anymore. it is man versus fish with no gear except their hands. They go out in hunt to find the fish. Oh! also place themselves in danger by reaching into areas that could contain venomous and poisonous creatures as well as snapping turtles. The ratings must be good knowing that the general public is waiting for disaster to struck like in NASCAR (they want to see a crash)

FISHING FROM A DOCK

     Some real fishermen get lost and mixed up in this category. Without owning a boat or being able to afford other methods they have been left with fishing off the pier as their only option.They unfortunately have to be exposed to the general public that congregate these piers. the ones that grab a pole out of the garage buy a bag of frozen bait make several failed casting attempts before an acceptable cast is made. and than they rest the pole down in hopes of catching something and something because they have no idea what specific fish is targeted. Most likely couldn’t even tell you the hook being used. Than are frustrated that they lost tier bait and make claims they knew a fish was bitting it just didn’t hook. Actually, you just keep feeding the crabs but your generously offering of free food nestled down on the bottom. these are the ones that get snagged by something on bottom and actually think they hooked a monster fish and continue fighting it as such until the line breacks at which they say that it must have been huge and too heavy to fight on you equipment.

     The real fisherman is down at the pier only during the tidal window that is both productive and least amount of seaweed. They cast work the area in which they have ben given. Would pass if the pier was too crowded knowing its a day full of crossed lines, and restricted workable area.  They look forward to unfavorable forecasts and can be seen fishing the piers throughout the winter herring run.

SURF CASTERS

     This group also has its fair share of people claiming they are fishing and should no way be a reflection of real surfcasters! These people also break out the old fishing pole and tackle box and head to the beach with a cooler of beer and a fold out chair. Cast out into the surf than plant the pole in the sand while they sit on their ass waiting for something that would have to be completely starving. —— These people always have something that sounds official to say to any passing beach walkers.

     Than there are two more groups under surfcasters. We have the real deal surfcasters and than we have the extreme hardcore surfcasters. These definitely are real fisherman. The real surf caster you can see working the tide, current, able to observe a pretty good picture of what the bottom looks like and how that relates to a likely place for predatory fish to hang out. Again, they are working the beach, multiple lures, actively searching for fish.

     The extreme hardcore surfcasters or those out on the jetties with spike cleat boots lowering the risk of slipping on those wet jagged rocks, while waves are crashing into it. Enough said!

Quick Note

After many attempts to explain, I have revised to simplicity. Ha!!!! there is no such thing for me !!

Anyway, My message was —– “Sorry that there has been a delay and inactivity to the blog, but other unfortunate situations have required my full attention. Once this is resolved, I will return back to my previous participation..

enough said !!!

lol

Ever forgot you key? Breaking and Entering YOUR house- have you ever

HAVE YOU EVER ?

Have you ever had to break into your house after locking yourself out and promise yourself you won’t do it again? You keep saying over and over while you fix the dent in the door or window frame you damaged to get in. Now your running late, but your set and as soon as you shut the door……. Your keys are still inside the house!!!!

I can’t be the only one thats done this!! I’m a career repeat offender!!! I should just keep my door unlooked and save myself the trouble of going trough this over again..

Parking lot Phenomena – Have you ever

Have you ever?

-Have you ever been walking through a parking lot and stopped to use someones tinted windows as a mirror only to find out someone is sitting in there?

-Have you ever found yourself completely clueless of where you parked your car? Even worse is forgetting which level you parked on in a multi level garage.

-Have you ever found your car and your key isn’t working and you can’t get in?…… Only than realize its not your car !!!!

Wake up get ready – Than get up and get ready for real – Have you ever

HAVE YOU EVER

Have you ever got up after hitting the snooze button a few times and went through your regular routine, shower, get dressed, eat, get into your car, just wishing you were able to stay in bed? At some point maybe cell phone rings and when you answer it ————— Your still in bed and were dreaming you were up and ready…… Now you have go through all of that again but for real this time. Plus you really late.

Well, I think that if your subconscious was on time than it should count!

Ah that just gave a new idea for a quote……

Unfinished/Interrupted Dream

Have you ever ?

Have you ever been woken up in the middle of a dream that you weren’t quite finished with yet, and were really curious to see where it was going? Than you try to fall asleep real quick hopefully picking up where you left off and if you can’t you get really angry at the person that woke you and ruined it for you?

Than when you are having a horrible nightmare you would be happy if someone woke you up, but some reason we never get woken during them.

Reality (Quote 2)

“It is a shame that so many have been robbed of the freedom and power to create the reality they want to live and believe in yet allow the persuasion of others to convince them doesn’t exist. You have been sold and enslaved into the reality they want to be considered normality and than enforce conformity.”
