i wouldn't know how some of you people down south feel who might complain about a little cold front but right now in pa its like 30 and i haven't gotten out in about a month and a half and cabin fever has been slowly kicking in for a while now i know i usually try to combat this buy going out and buying everything i can that i might need but I'm trying to cut back a little bit so instead of buying I've been on the computer just watching fishing videos and trying to learn something new

 

so my question for everyone is how do you try to handle the months your not able to get out on the water?

Shoot pool, yell at the kids, pet the cat, load up the truck and head to Florida. Stuff like that. Brian.

Winter Sucks ~

Or Tornadoes for that matter.

I do ice fish a little bit for whitefish. Fishing for bass walleye muskie when they are spawning bedding in canada is closed season.  Also considered taboo here.  That being said you can run across lake erie to buffalo to fish bass

As of right now, opening day for the LP of Michigan is 91 days from now, April 25th. I mark the time by drawing an x for each day on the calender. Kinda makes me feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning!!

Fishin, there are so many things to do in the greater Philly area other than fishing during the winter.

 

Try the museum; drive slow on the Surekill Expressway for the fun of it; go to New Hope and see all the wacky people's wares for sale; go to the Delaware River in Center City and look for bodies from New Jersey floating down the river;  go to a Flyers game and start a fight in the stands; go to Drexel's library and move the books all around; go to Temple and walk around wearing an Ole Miss Rebels sweatshirt; head to a Sixers game and yell and scream for the other team; drive out in the Main Line and go to the front door of one of the mansions and ring the bell and when they answer ask them if this is the place where your pregnant girlfriend lives; or rearrange your baits again.

 

You have lots of things to do in Philly in the winter.

One other great suggestion: Drive out to Blue Balls and Intercourse and get some refrigerator magnets with their names on them and mail them to your parents, brothers and sisters and grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins.

 

They will love them!

just blizzards, really cold weather, and of course cabin fever for most except the few that are in the Southwest and Southern parts of the country where they may have to deal with a few t-storms, maybe a tornado or two, but can still fish without having to cut a hole in the ice......lol

You're going to hate me but where I live, I can fish year-round for the most part WITHOUT ice. In the winter when Bass are hard to come by and the Salmon have all died off, I still have Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Steelhead I can target, not to mention the by-catches of Bull Trout and Mountain Whitefish. 

 

To actually answer your question though, I spend a little time making videos/slide shows of the past year's fishing adventures (I take a lot of pictures/videos when fishing). Or I play fishing games. Or I sit around and think about fish....oh wait.

After school is done ( next december ) I hope to be moving to Knoxville TN, and be a researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory... No more crapy 5 month winters for me...

I'm sure these times will go on for you Northerner's a bit longer.  Sooooo thankful was born to the south and still able to live here.  If you can you may want to take a quick fix it trip south.  Make it an annual thing and something to plan for.

Tight Lines and stay warm
