Break the bait monkey out of the house, since the wife had him on LOCKDOWN!  Then try to pay the bill before the wife saw it.  And disappear for a weekend so she would not be yelling at me about money when i came back.  But other than that,   nothing special.

Back in october me and my fishing buddy were camping in Land Between the Lakes.  We had planned on just doing some bank fishing becase we had good luck there before.  No luck.  So he drives about 45 minutes to his house to get his jon boat and brings it back to the campsite.  We then had to switch hitches because i did not have one on my truck.  I then backed his boat into Barkley lake on this beach, dirt (mud) and gravel.  the water was down so much I had to back in till the front tires were covered in water.

I didnt catch anything worth talking about.  He got a small LM and a drum on a minnow fishing for crappie.  But we had a good time and learned the layout of the lake a little better

In 2002, I went to the Junior Bassmaster National Championship in Deleware. It was a long drive from Kansas to Deleware, 1500 miles which was 2 days of driving. I ended up in 5th place, got some free stuff and had a great time.

I also traded about $30,000 woth of hours working for hours fishing last year.  UPS had a streak of offering days off so I essentially worked a 3 or 4 day week all year.  I felt guilty at first but I realized that you only go around once and if I can fish more now and survive comfortably then why not?

Well, lemme see...

I live in Texas, so of course I' ve fished here. I've also traveled so far as Tennessee, Kentucky, Kansas, Loozyanna, Panama, New Meh-hee-ko, Washington State, Korea, Old Meh-hee-ko, Germany, and Vietnam to fish.

The best part? The taxpayers picked up the tab ;D, via the US Army 8-).

Not to say there weren't some drawbacks...like trolling for some sort of tuna off Vung Ro in a high-speed patrol boat (Army) and having to spray an island with the boat's twin Fiddy Cal 'chineguns 'cause someone there took shots at us >:(....PETA Cong? Three long bursts and they became strangely silent :'(.

Fluke did you know they have LM on the big island?  I had no idea there were peacocks there.

I hunted turkey on the Big Island but I didn't know they had LM. The lake that I caught Peacock in was the only lake that had them. It was in the middle of Oahu and there were signs everywhere that said don't eat the fish because the water was so contaminated. It is located in Wahiawa, the armpit of the Island.

I've talked my wife into babysitting my partners kids so we could go fish a tournament.

I'm sure there will be more times that I have to come up with something to cover my butt while I go fishing!!!!!!!!!

I have gone 15 miles off shore to fish Chandaleur islands in a 12 foot jon boat with a 25hp motor.  LOL.  That was in my stupider days.  I also went fishing in the tail end of a hurricane in the Louisiana Saltmarsh.  I launched my boat 3 miles from where the actual launch was due to massive flooding.  Once I got out into the march there were 2 water spouts off in the distance.  Caught over 200 trout and 40 + redfish on that trip.   ::)
