Just starting up after a way to long intermission

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I used to fish a lot when I was younger, but in my late 20's, life got busy, I moved away, and haven't fished since. I'm now about to turn 60 this summer, and since I took an early retirement due to back and joint issues, decided I'm way to bored, and need a hobby to get me out of the house and into the outdoors that I love. Fishing immediately came to mind, since I used to love it so much. Admittedly, I'm pretty rusty, and having no boat, not really sure where to go around here (upstate NY..more specifically, Rochester area) but I thought I'd start here. Bass was always my favorite fish to go after. but honestly, I'm happy catching pretty much anything. I just like to get out and enjoy the sport. Stumbled upon this forum, and so....here I am. Any tips or ideas would be welcome, but I'm sure as I hunt through the threads, I'll pick up some ideas as to where to start. I'm hoping to find some shore spots to dip my line, but also, places where I can rent a small boat to get away from the shore crowds. If there's anyone around who would like a fishing partner, feel free to hit me up, but alone or with a new friend, I'm bound and determined to get out and drown some baits.

Welcome aboard. Being that your land locked so to speak, if you have any parks that have small lakes or ponds that have bass, ect in them, that would be a possible way to start up again. Other option is making a trip to the nearest lake, and either shore fish, or rent a boat if they have them. Also to refresh your fishing skills, bassresource has some good video's on how and what to do, also there's a ton of videos on youtube as well.
