Fish Opener

Today is that day. The first day for fishing in Wisconsin. It's been awhile since we cast a rod and now that "Harvey" the RV is in our lives we are taking inventory of our toys for camping.

We have the inflatable kayak that we just repaired from a wild trip down the La Crosse River. There's another story for another time.

We have two walking sticks repurposed from our snowshoe poles. We are still searching for the perfect camping chairs, it's recliner vs rocker, to be determined upon various resources.

Then there's the fishing poles, I think we sold them at a rummage sale they were very old and not well taken care of, so the question is do we or don't we.

I voted we do make a year of fishing. I found out in Wisconsin if you are getting a license for the first time or if you haven't been for over 10 years the fee is only $5.00. I'm sold. I know there is still the expense of fishing gear but what the hay.

For those who love to fish they should also check out the WI DNR app for fishing and hunting called the pocket ranger. It's just full of stuff for fishing, including a GPS system to tell you the next closest fishing spot on land, lake and docks. It will help you identify your catch and check to see if it's a record keeper. All the rules and regulations are at your finger tip(s) and tricks to making a meal.

Just gotta love the technology. Those fish don't have a chance.

  1. I didn't know you had a kayak. . What fun.
    You can borrow Pete's fishing gear. We have been hauling it for two years and he's never used it.
