Why do they even bother trying to predict precipitation???
We are supposed to get a good rainfall this weekend but every time I check the weather network the projected mm's fall a few numbers......
:o/I am counting on a good downpour for next week.
I am just starting to shake this chest cold that has kept me at bay and I am looking forward to cranking it up a notch.
There have been a few fish that have managed to find their way into the systems but generally the consensus has been that the big push is yet to come...and I am getting antsy.
I don't mind October fishing even if it does mean less fish and more shitrats..and there has been quite a few of the latter so far this year.
I am a fish snob and I have no problem with that. I love the area that I fish as much as I love my own family. This activity is as special as the quarry we seek and the connection I have with it is essential to me. It has become precious and when I see people shit on it.....
There is one dirt bag who kills fish on every trip and both Morin and I have come to suspect that he is poaching even beyond his creative interpretation of the catch and possession limit. I shudder to think of the number of wild fish that have found their way into the saddle bags of this sportsmans ATV both before and after the season closure.
Ah well...the Sausage Man is getting a little long in the tooth for this game and I am sure that in the not too distant future we will experiance a season where the hike in isn't ruined by the approaching rumble of deathmobile ATV....poach-wagon.
I work for the government so I know only too well about the absence of needed funding.There isn'tenough money to provide quality enforcement for more important things that are crucial to public safety. The Steelhead are way down the ladder and they will have to fend for themselves I suppose. The MNR is smoke and mirrors.....but it is not their fault. I believe they are doing the best they can with what little they have.
I do know that I fish as much as just about anybody that I have ever run across and I have been 'carded' once.
..Have at 'er Sausage Man and the rest of your meathunting shitrat brigade ......and bring on the nasty weather.
Maybe it would be better if the rain held off for a while....
Bite my tongue..
With any luck we'll be able to educate a few fish before they end up in the smoke house.
Oh Yeah..I have added some background music to this BLOG....It is me playing guitar complete with all the rough spots and mistakes....Internet is pretty cool...
