17 years man, SEVENTEEN years. I forgot how much fun it was. Went from about 1971 fishing party boats, piers and shore in NY to 1988 without a line wet. Then went after yellow perch and then salmon in Lake Michigan. Got the salmon on a charter. Nice fish but, if I were to do it again I'd bring my own light tackle and avoid the pool cues on the charter.

Hows about another 16 year layoff? From 1988 to 2002. Yeah that's right, another loooong lay off. Man was I an idiot (some say I'm still one :D ). Now back in the salt where I'm supposed to be.

Still trying to catch up on the learning curve as far as what species is available, when and where; baits/lures, etc.

Been skunked a few times, especially last year but, fewer skunks and more fish for my son and me this year.

Yeah the rain stinks but, the fish don't mind it ;) .

keep em tight.....Kurt

31 years layoff!!! Man I am not even that old yet! I hope I never get to that point or am that far away from water. Got to learn from other peoples mistakes you know. One of the advantages of being young:D
