    I know that type Ben. We have them in my neighborhood.

    I notice they also tend to have loud pipes on their trucks, and drive like maniacs down our neighborhood streets, kids be damned.

    When I was young fishing was a way to get out of the house and blow off steam from the work-week with my best friends on the weekends drinking and jawing and fishing.

    When my fishing buddies moved away, I took up motorcycle touring.

    Now I don't drink, and sold my bikes. Now fishing is mostly a way to spend time with my elderly Father whom I love a lot. He's not long for this world. Bassing and jugging is about the only activity we can do together away from the chattering women. I dig it.

    I admit, this is part of the reason I dislike the rude Tournament Players. They are not there for the Fishing. They are there for the sponsor boat decals, points lists, and competition with other men. To me, that's not Fishing as the Good Lord intended.

    Great you get out fishing with your dad. That is cool in my book.

    Chasin bass is always fun. Combo fishing by adding in jugging I like it.
    Remember, always help who you can, whether you know them or not, blessings come when you least expect it.

    Thanks!

    My general fishing pattern is:

    * Dig up worms from compost heap with flashlight.

    * Pick up Dad on the way to lake

    * Cast net for shad with headlamp. I cast. Dad picks 'em up from the ground.

    * Set out juglines.

    * Put poles in rod holders with bobbers and worms.

    * Troll around casting for bass

    * Reverse

    This way I catch bass, crappie, and cats.

    I'm thinking of going to a fish trap for shad instead of net casting because the netting eats up a lot of time in the morning.

    I would put out the shad trap out when I arrive, collect the trapped shad on my way home in the evening, freeze them, and repeat next trip.
