The Hawg Forum / What makes a good fisherman GREAT?
« on: May 14, 2019, 01:51:41 PM »
So I have been at this for a LONG time and to be honest I'm nowhere near as good as I should be. I continuously ask myself. WHY...
WHY are you not catching fish when everyone else is...WHY do I continue to beat myself up in these tournaments...WHY can't I find a fish on a spinner bait or a jig I know they should be on right now...WHY WHY WHY....
Well this weekend I had one of those days. In one of our SRIBA tournaments this weekend I had the WHY's and it cost me a good bag! I knew what to do from the start, I had the right baits tied on from the beginning and we were at the right place to make it happen. I spent more time picking rods, cutting and re-tying baits and dealing with a frustration level that just kept building than I did fishing. IT SUCKED!!!
THEN I had my moment... WTF are you doing! You caught fish they told you where they are WHY are you not listening. It was then I put down everything and tied on one single bait and began to fish. For the first time in the tournament since the first cast I was fishing again. Unfortunately it was the last hour of the tournament...
Like usual I finished with a few fish and in the middle of the pack. The difference this week is I think I actually walked away with something. I love fishing way to much to not enjoy every cast! If I'm a middle of the pack fisherman in tournaments I'm gonna be the best dam middle of the pack fisherman I can be...  :facepalm: (giggle) :nod:
Tight lines to all and remember... Enjoy it because it is only fishing!!!

The Hawg Forum / 2019 Skunk is out of the boat!
« on: April 07, 2019, 05:40:02 PM »
Got out today to de-winterize the boat and take a few casts. Picked up my first bass of the year so the SKUNK is officially out of the boat. LOL
Wish I could have spent more time on the water but yard work was the theme of the weekend.  :crying: Felt great to take some casts!  :nod:

Thankfully, I put on my gore-tex and shoveled during the afternoon yesterday. Anything that wasn't touched yesterday is a ROCK today.

Day off from work gave me a chance to head up to BPS and check out some stuff.  :yes:

Stay warm!

I have to be honest I looked at the picture 5X and your face is exactly why I fish and what keeps me coming back!
A wet line is way better than a dry one!

I just put in an order for those earlier today!  :nod: After some research and YouTube videos it seems like those and the  set by Cal Coast are the better sets.

The Hawg Forum / So what do you think?

So this weekend I made a decision. It hit me like a ton of bricks when I caught my 2nd fish during a night... (and the fact it has been coming up more and more)

I fish in a Thursday night league and with Curt in SRIBA. The waters we fish in RI and for the most part CT tend to get hit pretty hard. Everyone knows the good lakes and those lakes take a beating. SO... Long story short Friday night my first fish was a typical 1.5lber but looked very healthy and solid. I thought to myself it was great to see a new young class of fish beefing up! Then a caught my 2nd and it was also a 1.5lber however it was a different story. I went to put in my cull tag and his jaw was split from front to back. You could see where someone stuck a cull tag in too far back from the fishes lip and it must have ripped. It sucked to know "we" did that...
SO I'm going to test out some of the non-penetrating cull tags and hopefully others will follow. Who knows maybe our club rules will change and non-penetrating cull tags will be in the rules.

I know others are already using these tags so please chime in. What brands work and what brands suck???

Add in the 3+ days in the 90s we have coming...  :puking:

Boating Forum / When a simple thing becomes a PITA!
« on: April 17, 2018, 08:00:34 AM »
Without nice days to work on the boat outside I've shoe horned my boat in the garage to get it ready. I've been chipping away at the to-do list for the season and almost have it done. Thursday is first tournament so I'm down to the wire.

Last night I said let me fix that marker light on my left wheel well. Found a new set at Walmart 5$ ea not bad. I took off the broken one and hooked up the new one. 5-10 min  Easy, Done. Right... NOPE

I decided to replace the other side so they match. The new one is a hint bigger and I wouldn't want planes flying above to see I have 2 different marker lights. LOL So, I take off the working one and hook up the matching one and NOTHING... No light.... Take it off test it on a battery back and it works. Test the old one and it works. Try both again and nothing. Ended up the DARN wire snap on T connector from the factory IN THE FRAME came loose.. Now to get to it I have to unbolt the fender step and fish out the wires tonight.

BOATS... You got to love em... Figured I'd share I know we all have been there... HA
