In the last two weeks, I've lost a father in law to illness and my house and everything in it to the flooding. This TR has brought a smile to my face. Thank you for that.
If you could just get laid, I think all would be right in the world.
well then the bottom of my boat will attest that I'm REALLY fishing... black hull sounds so good on paper, and looks so good sitting there brand new.. but damn if it don't show every little scratch.. oh well, they can't stay pretty forever..Redchaser wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 7:40 amMike,Mad_Mike wrote: ↑Tue Sep 05, 2017 10:54 pmwhen I try to pole my little skiff and fish solo i just end up adding oyster scrapes to my hull and getting pissed trying to cast while holding my pushpole between my legs.... you seem to have it worked out better... Good on ya red! hell of a couple days there..
If you ain't scraping oysters, you ain't really fishing. For the solo thing, a belt holster for the push pole and a stripping basket standing on the rear deck right in front of my platform with line stripped into it and the rod standing up in it at ready reach helped me start catching a whole lot more fish.
As for the poling solo stuff.. i'm blessed with a bounty of people here in chucktown willing to let me pole them around all day for free... so I rarely have to worry too much about it..
Cheers on you for figuring it out though..

Now you're talking crazy. I'm truly sorry about your families recent losses, and you've been in my thoughts. If there's anything I can do the drive to Houston is about the same distance I drove to fish so I can make it, and if you need some fishing therapy the front of my boat is yours.
