    Well i have been with out my boat now for about 3 months:angry:
    so i have had to go back to bank fishing and im lost:confused2:
    i have been trying all new things &differn't spots on the river and haveing fun doing it but now i can't even pay for a good bite just my luck
    it is such a differn't world !!!!

    there's is nothing like get out on the crack of dawn and hideing to one of your good spot's up river or down? and watching the sun rise
    i think thats what i miss the most i guess once you have done that its hard to go back to just the bank !! but i use to catch alot of fish from the bank

    but i can't seem to getter done now???

    Know the feeling. Not too crazy about hitting the river by myself anymore and it's getting harder to find fishing buddies so I sometimes hit the bank and it's just not the same as fishing your favorite holes or running 10-20 miles and trying new water. Getting away from the "forked sticks" makes all the difference in the world. Stay safe and stick a pig!!!:wink:

    Fished from shore with minimal success. Having diabetic neuropathy didn't help much. Fished from my 16' Smokercraft w/ 50 hp prop. After busting 3 props last year at $125 a prop I paid my truck off and bought a G3 flat bottom/jet boat with a center console and a 60/40 Yammy Jet. What a ride . Now I can get almost anywhere. Still need a buddy to launch it due to the diabetes. But I can Handle that.

    Believe it or not I find bank fishing more relaxing then running my boat.. I also caught bigger fish sitting on the bank.. What i look for is a spot that everyone else overlook and I have good success...

    Here are some that came from the bank this year..
