19 April 2014 – A Quick Trip to the Fishing Pond

So, I had to work 0800-1500 yesterday.  I also met Cindy and Ember for lunch right after that until 1600.  Add to that a trip to the liquor store for wine for Cindy’s sauce with dinner (you can only buy wine in the state owned liquor stores here in Utah) and a trip to Walmart […]

18 April 2014 – Fishing – Keepers and New Gear

So, I had yesterday off from work for a couple of reasons.  One of them is that daycare is closed Friday and Monday for the Easter holiday.  I had Ember all day long and we had a pretty good time, but I’m not quite up to taking her somewhere like a lake to go fishing […]

Another New Rod and Reel Combo – The Zebco Dock Demon!

So, let’s see here…  I’ve got my Zebco 33 Platinum combo, the Zebco 11 Authentic combo, a B&M bamboo cane pole, and 12′ and 10′ telescoping Shakespeare crappie rods.  Oh yeah – I’ve also got my Zebco 808 that’s on the Bill Dance Omega catfish pole that came with the reel I haven’t mastered yet […]

7 April 2014 – Fishing at the Carbon County Fairgrounds Again

Yesterday was my day to work tech support alone.  It’s always busy on those days and this was no exception.  It also means my shift is 0900-1800 instead of 1000-1900.  Cindy also took Ember to go visit Grandma in the rest home, so I was going to have a little bit of time to myself. […]

Going After Bigger Fish – A “Reel” Solution!

So, let’s recap after the last post.  I’ve decided I want to catch some fish that are bigger than the average 12″ to 15″ rainbow trout.  I want to go after catfish, muskie, carp, and some of the other bigger fish,  but I don’t want to use my medium or ultra light rod and reel […]

Fishing – More New Stuff!

Ya know, it seems like I end up in the sporting goods section pretty much every time I go to Walmart.  Some days I even leave that part of the store without having added anything to my shopping cart :)  This past Sunday wasn’t one of those days and I think I came out with […]

Huck Finn Time – Goin’ After Panfish With a Bamboo Cane Pole!

So, I’ve caught trout on both of my new rod and reel combinations.  Life’s pretty good :)  That said, variety is the spice of life, so while I’ll continue to use my Zebco combos, I figured I’d try something that’s really affordable, but should be big time fun I’m goin’ after some panfish with a […]

Fishing – Continuing Upgrades to my Equipment

I’m pretty sure someone out there is going to ask this question, so I’ll get it out of the way now.  No, I do not intend to acquire enough fishing gear to fill up the back of a U-Haul  That said, I will probably get quite a bit more in the near future.  You see, […]
