Fishing Choices at Timber Life

It is time to plan a fishing outing now that my "Pink" Roddy Hunter LED Lighted Reel&Rod has arrived. When I ordered I wasn't satisfied with just one fishing pole so I looked around over at Mik Lurch's website www.miklurchtackle.com and found a ladyfish spincasting combo by Shakespeare that I wanted to try too. One way or another it looks like I will get a line in the water. Once,I wasn't to sure about using pink on my fishing expeditions,but the idea has grown on me after being introduced to it by Jody over at The Hunter's Wife. I can't possibly let Kristine at Outdoor Bloggers Summit/Hunt Smart Think Safety and Marian over at Marian's Hunting Stories,etc...,etc...,etc... have ALL the fun since they too are proud owners of the Roddy Hunter rod&reel combo. Last weekend when I visited Gun and Reel Sports in Jamestown,ND. I picked up the beginnings to start filling a tackle box. Son-in-law Justin Schnackenberg gave me some tips on stuff that has worked for him. So,walking the fishing supply isles we found some of the basics in his opinion.
The more I look at my fishing poles and tackle as I work on this post...The more I want to decide which direction I am going to go to put them in the water. www.iowadnr.gov/news/currentfish.html

Very happy to see you getting that fishing urge and putting together some fishing tackle for the waters in your area. You know fisher guys or gals never have enough stuff.

Mel- After telling myself I want to do something,always finding excuses why I shouldn't I have had enough...I am going to have some fun and go catch fish. ;)

My favorites are perch and crappie. I hear walleye is great but we've never caught any.
God luck!

Windyridge - Thanks! I enjoy crappie, striper and walleye. I am sure I will encounter others that will be added to the list. ;)

Obviously, I'm not a fan of the pink, since I'm a guy. But I hope you have a good time using the new rods and reels.

Simply Outdoors - I myself wasn't positive about pink for a fishing pole. However, since Jody introduced it, the concept has grown on me ... I'm going to give it a try.Guess any pole with a fish attached to it is successful.;)

Ya! I think you're onto something with that passionate pink pole of yours there, sister of the fin! If those other fine lady's of the female fishing fraternity dig 'em so much, then You can't go wrong!

Great blog too by the way! :-)

LarryB - The only successful fishing pole is one that hangs over the edge of the water...Ya never know you just might see more and more of those fine poles headed for the local fishing spots.Hopefully the ladies will be encouraged by those of us who already giving them a try.

Thanks for stopping by...;)
