    Was Wondering How Often Any Of You Guys Get To Go Fishing? Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Or Are You Like Me And Only Have Got To Go 3-4 Times A Year For The Past Year And A Half To Spend More Time With My 16 Mon. Old Twins Or For Other Reasons.

    Well this is the first time I have tried fishing in the winter time and I usualy go early saturday morning and sometimes at night. That way by the time my daughter gets good and awake I am usualy home. Or I go at night when I have been able to spend time during the day with her. The wife usualy doesn't mind me going. In the summer time I realy like going saturday night a few hours before dark, when the sun starts to go down most people if not darn near all leave.

    I go out as much as possible average times per year I would say about 20-30 sometimes I go through droughts where I won't go for a month or two then there are times where I go 4-5 times a week. Really depends on my families schedule other than that I'm out there regardless if the fishing is hot or not. I just love the outdoors even when the storms come through.

    Well, back in my single days, i had 160 days out somewhere one year, and then I got married and it dwindled down to about 80 days , then divorced so it peaked back up to about 110 days then got married again and now I probably get out on the average, about 75-80 times ayear, sounds like a lot but averages 1.5 times a week which is not enough. Of course Im a trout nut, and love to smallmouth and pond fish as well as Catfish so I realistically will get 20 or so smallie trips, 20 or so trout trips, 20 or so Catfish trips and 20 or so something else trips where I am targeting Carp, Gar, Saugeyes, Pike panfish etc.

    Dont tell the wife but I do long for those days where I was out every other day through the whole year!! Ahhh, the sacrifices we all have to make..

    I might add that as I get older with more house and wife and job responsibilities, it seems my average length of trips is getting shorted, now Im happy to go out and cast for an hour or two, but when I was single, most of my trips were 10-14 hrs long at a single time

    Last summer I was out every other night the whole summer long till the end of october. Nothing better to do. I run my own business so it makes it alot easier to get away from work. I consider getting out on the river just as important as going to work. Work brings the stress, fishing relieves it.

    I get to go about 2 times a month. Been workin' on my Jon Boat Project, so I've only been twice in a few months. One time bank fishin' and one time in the Jon, and that really wasn't fishin' cause we were testing out the boat.

    I do not get out as often as I would like. I do go when I can.
