How much do y’all talk about fishing in your daily life


Recommended Posts

Pretty rarely with the exception of two or three guys who actually know what I'm talking about-and a few students (I'm a HS teacher) at school. 

 

It is really cool having conversations with random kids who don't even take my class.

All day every day just about...Majority of my close friends are all bass fisherman and we all fish the same tournament trails.  Always something fishing, boat, or gear related to BS about.  

 

I essentially never talk about fishing with people that don't actually fish though.

A fair amount I'd say. A few of my close friends as well as my dad are into bass fishing so we're bouncing stuff off one another. I'm sure my gf wishes I didn't talk about it as much as I do, even though she does like fishing, just not to the near religious level I do. Outside of that circle though, not all that much. There are a lot of people around here who fish, but their level of interest and understanding isn't quite the same level. Not trying to make myself sound better than anyone, as I still welcome the discussion if they bring it up, but discussing the type of bobber they use the 3 times a year they fish doesn't really do much for me haha.

Almost every day on here to you guys. 
 

To Mrs Mike only when I have a trip planned and then only where, when and how long I’ll be gone. 
 

She’s a good girl!!

Not much unless it's with certain people.

I co-taught a class last year with a colleague who is a better, more diehard fishermen than I am.  Our specialties are on different waters so we had lots of information to exchange.  We often would find time during class to have a quick chat about something fishing-related.  He turned me on to spots and techniques that really improved my fishing here locally on a waterway that I never fished much.  I would say out of all our conversations last year, 90% were fishing-related.  It was probably a good thing that he transferred to another district school, due to coaching, and nowadays we only talk through texts or the few all-district activities we have every year.  We've been working on starting a district bass team but admins are a little resistant.

 

In terms of the rest of my life, the only people I really talk fishing with is my wife and she is just humoring me.  I used to tell all my stories to my father until he passed away.  I pretty much only fish by myself and I have often thought it would be good to have some fishing buddies to share info with but I'm quite picky about my fishing and secretive so being a loaner is just easier.

Every body of water I see while driving, always wonder how the Bass fishing is. 

The wife even asked me today while driving home from dropping our daughter off at the airport while I intensily starred at a large farm pond.

She said with a grin " do you think it's stocked with Bass ? " ?

Bass fishing is an everyday topic whether I'm on the water or on the couch.

With fishing buddies? 

 

Almost immediately.

 

With myself?

 

Constantly.

 

With family or anyone else?

 

Only if they ask, and even then, only briefly. 

 That's me. too.

I don't usually bring it up to someone who I know doesn't care. If someone asks me I'll gladly engage them. Sometimes people will ask a complicated question and I'll try to answer without them getting the 100 yard stare. You know when you're getting too technical.

a lot of the people I know in my area only saltwater fish (which I know slim to nothing about) or catfish and they seem to have no interest in bass fishing so I kind of stopped talking about it.

 

Once in a blue moon with my BIL and only text one buddy every now and then. He typically fishes for browns back in NY and there are slim to none in my area.

 

In general, I try not to talk to people though so that might have something to do with it.
