Early morning fishing shows

Watching these early morning fishing shows while drinking coffee is driving me crazy We have had cold nasty drizzle all of February I have the boat ready to go be yet to go. It is suppose to be sunny and 84 degrees in a few days so hopefully I will be on a lake or the coast. Then another cold front Winter down here is crazy 80s one day 30s the next.

The snow started around 4 this morning here in WI. ~6" so far. It's supposed to finish around midnight. Probably a foot or so of white gold. It's awesome

On topic, sturgeon spearing season started last weekend. Some cheddarhead caught a 110-pounder.

I'm jealous, skijor. I grew up in Dairyland, but now live in Southern California. I have to drive 2 hours to experience snow, other than seeing it on the mountains. People here don't understand how I can miss it.

Crappy fishing here, too. Deep reservoirs with crappy (not crappie!) shorefishing (no boat for me!), or very far away. Living in Wisconsin as a youth, I could walk out my door and be fishing in 15 minutes. We don't even get rain for ten months out of the year here, much less a body of water I could fish in.

Fish plants start soon, I think so I will take my son out to catch an expensive fish dinner, at some point.

I visited the Apostle Islands a few years ago in Wisconsin. On the way stopped by the fresh water fishing hall of fame and climbed into the giant sturgeon. Awesome state enjoyed being there and seeing how clear the water of Lake Superior is. To see that much area of cold fresh water, anyways jumped in and it was cooooold ...

Fishing sucks. You have to sit around doing nothing for hours, and best case scenario, you have to eat a fish.

Nope.
Drink beer.
Auger a hole in ice.
Drink beer.
Sit on stool holding spear and beer waiting for one of those prehistoric monsters to swim by your hole.
No traditional bait is allowed.
Did I mention that this activity pairs well with drinking beer?

This sounds like bait dunking, not fishing.

I used to watch Denise Austin exercise at 5am...there was no other reason to get up at that hour in 1996.

Or watch ESPN, for that matter.

He's like a really cool grandpa, reading a painting lesson instead of a fairytale.
