It does seem quite rare. I can't honestly say an hour goes by where I'm not thinking about a more effective way to run my line or doing something outside.

You definitely will. You are entering prime time for fishing young man. Fall is my favorite. At a minimum, if you are going to water trap, go get yourself some scraps for bait and fillets for your family.

Fishing isn't my jam anymore, I just can't get into it like I used to.

at 14 almost 15 I knew trapping was a thing but I knew no one who trapped

I was busy working every hour I could making money and buying guns at 14 bought my 12ga and 30-06 at 14 and a truck at 15 a few months before I had my drivers license it is 16 in WI but 12-13 to drive farm plates which I had been doing already. at 16 I was buying tools and working on my truck besides hunting and shooting.

when I wasn't working I was hunting & shooting ever opportunity I got. or Fishing with my dad we went on lake Michigan for salmon and trout every chance we got.

don't rush it next thing you know you will be older than your dad is today , I know it takes decades but man they go so fast.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Hey, you are funny!
And you are doing well standing up for yourself.

On the topic of chasing girls, I did a lot of catch and release.
Long ago I used my one tag and bagged a trophy.

I'm still relaxing after mowing yards all summer, now I'm waiting for leaves to drop, and then I'll turn those into cash. 39 more days until the trapping season opens and the real work begins!

Ain't much to stand up for but thank you. I guess some people must have a reusable tag then on that note.

Happy Birthday to you young man. Grab a fishing pole. Catch something. Scout a creek or pond. Get up before dawn. Listen to the birds. Birds start moving a half hour before dawn. I am sure you will find something to do. Have fun grin

Little too far east for that one. Also coffee is so bleh!

It's an acquired Taste...

Drink a big pot Black ...you'll crave it later on.
