Gone fishing
« on: May 07, 2012, 04:56:50 AM »
Heading to the briney deep to reduce the population of tasty fish and fill my freezer. 

I'll be checking in here from time to time but will not be able to ship any new orders until I return on 5/14.


Thank you

Have a safe & enjoyable trip!
:D


I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

I caught a boat load of fluke and striped bass and the fishing will keep getting better for a few weeks. 

My freezer is only half full, which means I'm going to have to take another trip before the middle of June.

Oh dear... That sounds like such a bummer... LMAO

Glad to hear ya had a fine time & forced yourself to only catch enuff to fill just half of your freezer..Forcing ya to do the right thing & return for another trip.
Fine way to think & do..
:thumbsup:


I like to do things like that too. Forcing myself to repeat enjoyable trips.. Ahh, such agony...
But someones' got to do it..right?
:D

Just so, I also took a smaller cooler than normal, just to make sure I didn't bring back too much fish.

Being semi-retired and self-employed has a few perks.

I agree.  I am retired not by choice but it does have the benefit of being flexible with my free time.
