Well, another fishing season is upon us. Lots of people are already out on the lakes drilling holes and doing all that hard-core fishing stuff.
I haven’t heard any reports of the pan-fishing in Zone 17 yet. It will be interesting to see the outcome. It would also be interesting to have angler’s stories on incidental Walleye catches and how they dealt with the situation. That seems to be the big issue drawing all of the negative attention to the new laws. This season will be a good learning curve. If things work out, great; if not, back to the drawing board.
As for myself, I finally had my wrist surgery November 19th and am slowly healing. I start physiotherapy soon and honestly, can’t wait. I will do anything and everything to get the ol’ hook setting arm back in shape. So far I have lost quite a bit of forearm muscle due to the lack of usage/exercise however on the plus side I feel like I already have more gripping power than pre-surgery. The human body is one bizarre unit!!!
Shortly after my surgery, my house got broken into… bunch of a-hole kids needing to support their drug habit… I know this because the cops caught the little SOB’s… good-on-them!!! Took electronics, booze, fishing stuff, instruments, golf gear, Cuban Cigars… and the list goes on.
With all that negative crap said, Christmas was awesome at the Bowman house with the kids going crazy once again. Lee and I put most of our money and effort into the boys which is the way it is supposed to be. One super bonus unbelievable fishing gift I received from Santa was a Diawa Steez baitcasting rig… this baby is slick. The reel weighs less than 6 ounces and when coupled with the rod… I’ve never felt anything so light. I’ve been sitting on the couch engaging/disengaging the spool and “pretending” to pitch a craw into my make-believe Bass Abyss. Thanks Santa!!!
As far as here at the Fish’n Canada Headquarters, we’re busy setting up this season’s shoots, new business etc… looking forward to a great season!
