For years I bank fished every out of the way hole I could find that would hold water. I also have a nice large tent that I truely enjoy making use of. The dilema here is that I have yet to find a free access place where you could camp and fish for a few days or a week without being locked in after a certain time of evening or paying a fortune to some State or Federal Park........and even then, you can't be located right on the bank and just fish until you don't want to look another fish in the eye. I even bought a boat for better water access and less hassle, but even that doesn't compare to just throwing up a tent and hangin' out for a while. While thinking of all this, I DO know of only ONE possible place to do this in my immediate area, but that's pretty well over-run with drunks and druggies, so I'd shy away from that considering my age and being accompanied by a disabled wife. She's not completely disabled, but moves very slow and painfully. So where the heck can a person go do something like that these days with all the private property and no tresspassing and legal regulations ? I just don't see it being done without costing a fortune or traveling to some other State. Next question: what if I could take the boat too ? Now wouldn't THAT be a great trip? :confused2: As an after thought, what about some neet spot only accessable by boat. That'd be awesome.
