    Both of my uncles and my Dad and I have been fishing pretty much every weekend. We've been doing good trolling one of the small lakes up here since we've all limited out pretty much each time we've gone out there, but otherwise it has been pretty bad here this year as well. I shouldn't complain though since I myself have 9 fish in the freezer, and dad's got about 20. Gotta get a new pan for our smoker so we can smoke some. All rainbow trout, and I think the biggest one is about 14 inches and the smallest is about 10.

    Tomorrow (weather permitting) I'll probably do a bit of a hike or a ride, depending on my mood. I wanted to today, but my body was just too damn lazy, lol. It's nice having a "vacation", but man do I wish I was working right now because I am BORED!

    I'll be pulling the boat out soon (hopefully) for some fall fishing. My dad & I didn't get any in this summer...that oil spill really had us disgusted and it's just too damn hot! I'd rather be out there in the fall anyway.

    Growing up in the Northwest, we always quit fishing at Labor day, and didn't go again until springtime. There are a few ice-fishing episodes, but that's pretty much the rule for us, try to catch and freeze enough during the summer to last until spring.

    Now that I'm down in the South, I don't see why I shouldn't be on a boat catching something until even early December, just as long as the weather is good. Start up again in March. I've not done that recently, but that's just part of living in the south.
