Gone Fishing

I took my sun out fishing for a short while Sunday morning...   short, because it was less than pleasant... that is, it was freezing... low 40's & windy.  Did get a chance to cast a few times, but it wasn't much fun.  We'll try again in a week or two if it warms up.

A change of title

Yes, I've changed the title of this blog to include more than just boats.  Unfortunately, at certain times of the year I get away from boat building... and winter turns out to be one of those times.  I'll get back to it in a few months, but for now, the fever is off.

Instead, let's talk fishing, since the two are not mutually exclusive.

Last Sunday, I took my boy to the local Fishing Expo down at the fairgrounds.  He's been bugging me to take him fishing, so I figured I should get some gear.  Haven't been fishing for years... OK, decades, and while I was never into fishing as much as some people (for instance, my sister), I enjoyed it on occasion.  Also went an signed up for a fishing water (freshwater only).

Needless to say, I was unsurprised at my ability to spend close to $100 on tackle... and I didn't get much beyond the bare necessities.  Since I've no experience fishing the local water, we'll have to see if I guessed right as far as the types of lures and such goes.  Hoping to get out in a week or so on one of the local ponds.
