It's Almost Here !!

Recommended Posts

March, it's almost here !!

 

Its' time for most of us to dust off the rods and start getting everything ready to hit the water, March is a time of thawing and warming up of our favorite waters, it's that short period of time we get to use for tracking the fishes movements from deep to shallow as they prepair for yet another spawn.  Some of us have already experienced this event and some of us eagerly await the event.

 

March, it's like that ol' firehouse from way back when, you know the one, the bell would ring and half the town would show up to put out the fire, some would watch and some would work and some would help with whatever they could, kind'a like a fishing tournament, once again the boats will roar to life as they gather for the seasons first event, once again they gather in a large pool of boat after boat, once again they take off one by one, hitting the trottle and setting sail for their first destination and their first fishing event of the season, each one hoping they will be the victor at days end, aaaaahhhhhh,  I can smell the oil mixed fuel now !!

 

Are you ready? Did you do your homework? cause it's time to show what you got, and give all those new lures and rods and reels a good workout that you got for Christmas, is this going to be the year for you? the year you will finally put all of it together and start to really figure out what you are doing and not give up?

 

YES !! Yes it is, it's time to fish !!, it's time to not just show up, but to show off those new skills you worked on last season and over the winter, it's time to stop dreaming and start catching more fish !!

 

WWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOO   HHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

It's time once again to get out there, throughout this season, I wish each and everyone of you that this season is the best one you have ever had, I hope you continue to grow and learn and most importantly, teach,  pass along this awesome thing we like to do so much.

 

I hope this season brings a lot more of us together and new friendships made that will last a life time, with lots of memories, especially ones that include some big ol' bass.

 

To the events of the season, I hope the Roadtrip turns out to be the best one ever, it sure sounds like it's going to be, especially with so many states being represented this time around, be careful and have a safe trip to and from and enjoy the time while you are there, man I can't wait to see the video of this one !!!!

 

Let the fun and the swearing begin !!!

 

Good luck and be safe everybody !!!

I think Nitro has been cooped up too long in western Virginia and is ready to hit the water.

 

I have been watching my Dogwood tree. The buds are there but not getting bigger. When those Dogwoods bloom the bass are on their beds and another great fishing season begins.

 

I am fishing our club's tournament on Lake Gaston on March 3rd and the boat is ready to roll. Will put the rods, reels and baits together this week. Already have my plan of attack finalized.

 

So everyone on the east coast watch those Dogwoods. As the blossoms start to get larger and bloom fishing season is upon us.

I have been out the last two days and have been killing them. It's going to be a good season this year. Last year I didn't get to strt fishing til mid May because I just moved to Jacksonville, now I will have a full season of fishing and so far so good.

I walked out to the boat this past weekend, still covered up for the winter, as I reflect on the upcoming events with our Government, I could not help but wonder what this season would hold, Thursday is a day of deadlines for our Govenment, once again I await to see if my paycheck gets cut yet again,  I had saved a few bucks for my birthday trip to my favorite lake over the last several months, a trip I have not been able to take for the past few years,  it was just enough to get out for the day,  I started to uncover the boat but thought I had better check the batteries first that I had stored for the winter,  wouldn't you know it,  sure enough both are shorted for the trolling motor,  although the main battery seems to be in good shape,  I walked over to my red truck to borrow the battery from it and low and behold,  that one has also reached it's end as well,  with the rising costs of everything,  I knew this weekends planned fishing trip was a wash, so much for a birthday trip yet again.

 

Last night I got a phone call from my really good friend as I was sitting in my chair watching the news,  he has invited me to spend the weekend at the lake with him,  a Saturday with just us and he has to go back to work on Sunday,  he has opened up his offer by letting me use his boat for the rest of the weekend through Monday.

 

If you know me, I am not the type too use someone elses equipment,  I always feel bad about those sort of things,  I feel as if I am taking advantage of something,  but the offer was more than I could have ever wished for,  I had found this type of thing twice on here with Zoff and Quanjig,  both had offered their day with me on the water to be at their expence,  nothing else but just simply come and enjoy the day with neither one asking for any monitary investment,  nor would they take it as offered. 

 

I am once again reminded of the kind of people we are toward one another,  even though you think times are rough,  there are those suprising moments in life that just make you want to stop and give thanks for the kindness that people always seem to show,  just a day on the water,  it may not seem like much,  but that escape from the pressures of everyday life,  no matter how brief,  always seem to renew the soul don't they,  just hearing the wind as it whips by the rod as you cast,  the spool buzzing off line as bait goes flying through the air,  only to have your friend laugh at you for fishing in the trees,  those moments are few and far between,  enjoy them while you can.

 

There may be another 4 years of high fuel costs and taxes etc..., it may last even longer,  who really knows,  but everyday I am thankful for the friendships I have made and the opportunities I have been blessed with,  this site has also allowed me to make some really great friends to talk with and share a little about one another,  and to also someday plan a get together,  miles and miles and miles apart are we from one another,  but yet we still share a smile and on some occasions a laugh or two,  this site has opened new doors and allowed me to make some really great friends,  some are still only through words,  someday I hope to meet each and everyone of you and be able to return the same kindness,  until then enjoy everything you have been blessed with and laugh as much as you can,  we are not here for very long at all so make the most of it no matter your given situation.

 

Untill that day comes,  keep those baits in contact with something,  get off those banks,  thats what you purchased that boat for in the first place,  enjoy the time and take the time too learn something new.

 

Good luck and be safe !!!

Well said.  You claim to be a man of few words and I would, for the most part, agree.  It's times like these when your true command of the language comes out.  I can actually hear you voice and see your expression while reading this.  Cheers!

Wish I could say the same here in Virginia. Not been a great winter bite. I need to diversify in the winter and go back to fishing for panfish - in addition to bass - if for nothing else than to feel fish at the other end of my line. And to return home not skunked for the day.

 

Being in Florida would help, though! :smiley:
