i need to vent

Recommended Posts

sorry guys i just need to vent to some fisherman. haha i am so tired of this base Holloman afb. i LOVE to bass fish i am so obsessed with it. but the problem is that the closest lake is 2 hrs away and that costs alot of money to drive that far. be thankful that alot of you guys have lakes close by. and it doesnt help that where my brother is stationed he has tons of lakes 15 minutes from him and a lake on base so he always has to say that not meaning to make me upset. before i couldnt wait to get out of michigan now i cant wait to go  back to my 30 lakes in 30 minutes. i am trying to leave here but so far no bases are coming up. its getting really depressing around here when i get home from work i go from computer to xbox, computer to xbox back and forth. when i was back home it was fishing everyday. but i thought i would vent. but also dont get me wrong the military does take care of you, but of course they dont know your needs or wants.

Fishing is a mental escape from the world.

So you have to drive two hours.  So what?

Isn't it worth it at least once every few weeks?

Can you find any ponds in any housing subdivisions or office parks?  Check out a map of the County for ponds, too.

Also, any  places to fish in Onlee, Boles Acres, Alamegordo, Mountain Park, Dog Canyon Estates or Dunes?

Any hidden ponds that the pilots can tell that they saw or that they can be on the lookout as they fly the Raptors and Talons?

And thanks for being in the Air Force.  You are a special guy and we all appreciate what you are doing to help make us safe here at home.  :)

That sucks, sorry for your dilemma. I imagine that you can't just pick up and go anytime you want either. You usually sound pretty upbeat here on the forum, maybe with one of Sams's suggestions, and your " cando" attitude, you'll figure something out.

Good luck! I hope you do. :)

By the way, weren't you working on your trailer bearings?  How'd you do?

Try pulling up your area in Google Earth.  I've found several local ponds that I never knew existed.  It probably won't be much, but it could save you gas and give you a place to wet your line.

I feel your pain... when I was stationed at fort irwin I was in the middle of the Mojave DESERT.. there was no fishing for me! so I drove the 2 1/2 hours and went deep sea fishing just  to wet a line... it was better than nothing... just keep plugging away and hope you get a new place that has better bass fishing prospects..
