Get an "Amen" to CABIN FEVER?

Recommended Posts

My goodness...it is killing me!  I have full fledged cabin fever, and right now there is not a thing I can do about it.  The past two weeks here in gorgeous NE Ohio (I GOTTA get back south) have been the coldest of the winter.

Me and Cedar1 have a tourney April 9th, and I am fearing at the time we are going to be vertical jigging throught a small hole for bites.

Any other poor good ol' boys stuck too far north that are about to pull there fingernails out (and if she isn't lucky, my wife's too) in about the next

any minute???  Amen?

By the way, you don't have to be a good ol' boy to say 'Amen'. ;)

A big ole AMEN to that!  I just got back from a ski trip to Squaw Valley (Lake Tahoe) where it was 50 degrees almost every day!  When the snow turned to mashed potatoes every afternoon, I'd look at the lake and say to myself, "Dang, I shoulda brought my fishing rod."  And now they're calling for snow here on Long Island...HURRY UP AND GET WARM ALREADY!!!

Its about ten degrees today up here in Maine. I'm suffering right along with the rest of the northern crew. This forum is helping to take the edge off but I'm dying to wet a line. Some people are starting to avoid me because all I want to talk about is the upcoming fishing season. Here's an AMEN!

The worst thing is that we had a very warm Winter(in PA) up until mid February and I was able to get out a few times. Now the daylight is lasting longer, but it's getting colder. I just started getting Cabin Fever bad this week working on my Jeep in the snow and freezing temps.

Major Winter storm for Thursday!! Blah...and they are stocking trout in the local streams. Luckily I have some native trout streams within 1 mile that you can fish all year.

Here, I'm told the fish are starting to bed, we have finally have gotten enough rain to help fill back up the lakes, upper 70's and 80's the last couple of days and I have a broken ankle and have to stay off of it.

Living back in my native south I am only mildly bothered by cabin fever. Now the ten years I lived in Wyoming where in the winter you can drive motor homes on the lakes gave real meaning to cabin fever. Wyoming natives say there is only two seasons(winter & road construction). It seems you can' fix the roads when the ground is frozen rock solid. I was in Casper, Wyoming. To give a little perspective Casper averages a daily 10 miles per hour higher winds than Chicago. Match that with temps as low as 40 below zero (even the sewers start freezing 6 feet below ground) and you have CABIN FEVER! So each time I start feeling a little frustrated during winter here in north Arkansas I just start thinking of all those fond winter nights near a blast furnace trying to stay warm to start feeling all warm and happy. Then 30 degrees seems like shirt sleeve weather. Now I know some of our northern brethren know what I am talking about.

A BIG AMEN from Me. Ice sucks. ;)

My cat is addicted to "the flippin' game"

LBH,

Lucky b-tard, I have 3.5 cats that are addicted to "The all new pitching game" and a dog that is mad as heck that she is the "moving pitching target". :D The other 1.5 cats got hit with a 3/8 hookless jig and are not real sure if they like "The all new pitching game" or not. ;D

I had cabin fever one day that it rain 12" besides that not much cabin fever in Florida. I've been fishing 3-5 day a week. It was 80 degrees here yesterday but we have a cold front coming in that will make it 73 tomorrow. ;D I guess not much of a cold front for all of you who live up north. I bet some of you guys can't wait for global warming. Hope it gets better up there for you guys. Don't worry come June I'll be wishing I was living up north once the hurricane season starts. :o
