awefully quiet on here......is no one catching any steel yet
I'm thinking you need to invite o'le CK on one of these trips!bill said:you guys need to get more time off, I've hooked 4 fish in 8 trips to 4 differant systems so far this season and not once have I been to the Veddar and I have been off since last Friday and don't go back till Jan 07/08 :thumbup: you got to love banked time off
Well I've always felt that going out with a guide isnt the same thing - a few times when we were on vacation we went fishing with a guide - mainly in mexico and I just find it isnt the same thing. They fix up the rods and gear for you - tie all the knots and bait etc. And even set the hook - all you do is reel in. Its fun and all - but not the same thing. Actually last time we were in Mexico (Manzanillo) My husband caught his dream fish - a 8 1/2 ft sailfish and I caught a 4 1/2 ft dorado. They are both mounted on our livingroom wall - doesnt quite go with the decor - lol. The good thing about going out with a guide is you do learn the techniques and where to fish.hotrod said:So I guess if you have a friend who has his own personnel boat and takes you out, it doesn't count either.The fact of the matter is whether you pay money or not to go out in a boat, anyway you look at it is true steelheading.I have banked hundreds of hours on a boat and believe me there were alot of no fish days. In fact there have been days where all I saw was my float do nothing but float down river all day, not even a bite. You know I could probably drive a boat myself in certain rivers I've put so much time in.I've put a ton of time on foot too..........TONS!
OK! So it rubbed me the wrong way a little! Sorry about the rant! :cheers:
I can't wait to get out and hook some more steel on the LML.
