Unbelievable!!!

Recommended Posts

I'm from Central Illinois. The weather was emaculate yesterday (a little windy, but you'll have that). The problem is, it was my 1 year anniversary with my beautiful wife!!! I was a little in the dumps. Watching my normal fishing shows in the a.m., she woke up and said "I can't believe you're still here! After explaining I didn't want to leave her on our first anniversary, she ENCOURAGED me to take advantage and get out on the water. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones!! (I did do the dozen roses, dinner, and comedy club the night before), so I'm not a total jerk!!! Thanks Leslie!!!

My dad had to "sneak" out of the house to go fishing. You are a lucky man.

I'm from northwest chicago so I had the warm weekend as well, How was the fishing?

Off topic but where are you fishing at and where in central Illinois are you from.  I am also from central Illinois.

First of all CONGRATULATIONS on your one year anniversary! Your wife obviously understands your passion for fishing. With that kind of compatibility you are one lucky fellow. Come to think about it, I'd say most of the wives of the BR guys understand and support our passion. They might not like the $$$s we spend on it, but they at least tolerate it to some degree:o)

It also appears you had one NICE day out there on the lake!

Don't worry my friend, a few more anniversaries will go by before she starts complaining about you going out fishing...It always seems like women (no offense to anyone) seem to allow things easily at first but then tighten up when the man goes fishing more and more, and the wife wants him to be with her.

But yes congrats on your first anniversary!!! ;)

Hey guys, was away for a while. Thanks for all the congrats and kind words. She is an amazing gal. Hey IL_BASS, I'm from a little town called White Hall in Central Illinois. I've been fishing Sangchris and Coffeen this winter. Mostly quantity at Sangchris, quality at Coffeen

Congrats!!! And you had a better day than I. I hit the banks and only caught one 12"er. I caught it on a bright blue(top) and neon green(bottom) husky jerk bait. And that was on a slow constant retrieve by the east docks of san chris.

I live in the Springfield area and hit san chris and Springfield Lakes the most.

Hey gummybear, how's the fishin on lake Springfield these days? It's been 4-5 years since I've been there. Only fished it once, but I won the tournament. Now I live a little closer, and wouldn't mind getting out there. Any tips for this time of year????

Really?  She let you go fishing on your first anniversary?

I would never think of doing that as the weekend would belong to her.

I guess my wife and I did other things on our first anniversary, a number of times, which were more fun then going fishing.    ;)

But to each their own.

Does she have a sister? :)

Thats great--Happy Anniv.

My wife lets me go sometimes unless she's bored then I can't go

That seems to be the guideline

But I can't complain, I'm a stay at home Daddy

Sorry for the slooooowwww reply ventureboat. The fishing is not to bad at springfield  lake. Now san chris is very pressured at the moment though.

I plan on fishing springfield more this summer.
