My father and most of his friends always have the same answer when somebody asks them, "how's the fishing?" They all reply, "the fishing is great, the catching isn't so good".
And they're right, fishing is great whether you catch anything or not. Catching fish definitely adds something to the experience, you feel like you've accomplished something, made some progress. However, catching nothing accomplishes something too. You learn what works and what doesn't. You learn who to fish with and who not to fish with. You learn where to fish and where not to fish.
I went fishing on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, at the same place, with different people.
I haven't had a chance to do much ice fishing yet this winter, and a lot of that has to do with the lack of ice. The smaller lakes in the area had enough ice last weekend, and I was out of town. Have any of you been having luck fishing through the ice this year?
I went to South Bay a couple weeks ago, it was my first time out this season. We caught a Northern Pike in about 20 feet of water, but didn't have much luck for the rest of the day.
Greetings, and Happy New Year!
I didn't write much last month, actually, I wrote very little last month. Work picked up quite a bit during the holidays, I was finishing up my last semester of school, and I was working on a little project that I couldn't write about until now. I know I know.. excuses, excuses. You're right, but I didn't want to spoil the Christmas surprise that I was working on in my free time.
I built a rustic style headboard for my girlfriend, Liz. It wasn't a complete surprise, she asked me for a rustic headboard, but the type of wood, the height, and the overall design was up to me, and I wanted that part to be a surprise.
Have you ever built a piece of furniture? Read on so see how I did this and please, let me know of any tips/tricks that may improve any future furniture projects.
