I'm a fishing junkie! are you?

Fishing junkie

Yes I admit it I am and have been a fishing junkie all my life, this affliction has cost me dearly from the beginning to this day.

I have worn out two wives in the process, spent untold amounts of money that I didn't have!

I warned both wives about my problem before we signed the agreement,both told me "don't worry about it sweetheart I can handle it" neither had any idea what they were getting into.

My first wife is in rehab as we speak, the second is hanging on by the skin of her teeth,she is 14 years my junior but never has been able to keep up with me.

So now I spend my time reading your reports and b-tching or so she tells me but this weekend we are headed for the mountains for a few days,its cooler and hopefully the trout will be biting and I can dream about those big Roosters and all will be well.

Anyone can catch fish in a boat but only \"El Pescador Grande\" can get them from the beach.

I hope when my time comes the old man will let me bring my rod and the water will be warm and clear.

So truly put. I have many addictions, most are not centered around motors or I would serious debt.
With the money I have spent or hunting and fishing, I could eat sushi grade fish and kobe beef for the rest of my life.
I hope you get a trout or two....

So are you more of a saltwater or freshwater junkie?

As soon as I started fishing the Sea of Cortez I rarely fish freshwater. Still fun but once I got a boat Id rather spend a day out on the ocean.

My favorite fish to catch is probably a YT on the iron. However I can C+R spotties + cochitos all day just for fun too.

2 boats and 2 kayaks all dialed in for fishing. The addiction is real!

Fishing is an obsession for me. Most recently I am thinking of living on my boat. So I can fish or be preparing to fish.
It makes no sense.
I recenting turned down a voluntary layoff and retirement. But now may get involuntary layoff. 3 months minimum and maybe 6 months maximium.
So now I am scheming on a couple year layoff/mini-retirement.
So I want to live on my boat in the fee achorage in Newport beach so I can prepare for baja.
It sounds strange but I think it is doable. And I haven't bought a new boat yet either.
I think I can live on a 1990-1993 Searay 270 Sundancer.
It will serve as a camper and an ocean capable fishing boat. Right a the top end of trailerable too.
Insane right?
