    How many of ya'll fish with your better 1/2? Just wondering in 22 years of marriage I can count on my hand the number of times my wive fished with me.

    She says it is boring, and cant understand why I like to sit there all day, I told her be quite, and pass me another beer. That was her last fishing trip.........:wink:

    My wife loves to fish. We go to the boundary waters around Ely, MN every year with my folks and she loves it. But she doesn't like when the waves are rolling at 3 1/2 feet( I say that's a good walleye chop) and there is absolutely no way I will get her on the Missouri River.

    Yeah about the better 1/2 coming, I know whe wouldn't enjoy it. She keeps telling me she would go out with me. But i know for a fact she would not get a kick out of it. She also would be the one to say this is boring and doesn't understand why i do it. I might just have to break down and take her out with me one time. But i'm sure i'm pretty close in what the reaction is going to be. I know her to well.

    No I don't fish with the better half. I guess the reason is, she got burned out by it when she was a child. Her grandpa always dragged her and her brother out fishing all the time and they stayed out for hours. Kinda made her lose her interest in fishing. My wife has fished with me on a few occassions, but I can count them on my fingers.:smile2: LOL! I have a few buddies that keep me company when I'm on the water.:wink:

    When I get to GO fishing I go with John...Those are probably my fondest memories of quality time spent together, and alot of it with our kids.


    Now HE would probably rather NOT fish with me, LOL :wink::smile2::smile2:

    Well my better half first encouraged me to get back into fishing. Then she wanted to come along with. So I started her out catching blue gills and eventually got her up to fishing with real gear for real fish.

    She's still ticked off about the huge carp that stole her pole. And as a result is a bit leery of wanting to fish for "monsters". But I suspect come next year she'll be looking for something to put a big bend in her rod right beside me.
    When she hooks a fish she doesn't really show any signs of excitement other than trying to reel like crazy to get it in before it gets off.

    12 years of marriage and we've always had a close relationship, but its better now than its ever been.

    I never thought she'd get into it, but she's a real trooper down at the water.

    Me and mine fish together all the time. 20 years ago we fished together because we were poor and needed to put meat in the freeezer, now its more because we enjoy the peace and quiet and relaxing together. Its a good time.

    I don't have a better half to fish with. I go fish with my dad. But if I did have a better half I'd make him go fishing too.

    Yup, I fish with the wife. It's weird....On the nights that I go either by myself or with my buddies, I catch very little, if anything at all. BUT, when she goes, it's ON! She's my good luck charm, and she even outfishes me sometimes. There's only one drawback. She won't bait a hook, she won't take a fish off unless she absolutely has to, she won't clean fish, and she won't eat 'em. Oh well.....more fun for me!

    This was a VERY interesting poll. It's good to see that husbands and wives can enjoy the outdoors together. It's even better when the kids get to go. :0a23:

    My wife likes to fish but hasn`t fished with me in a long time. I`ve asked her to come along but she always declines the offer , she`s in bed early and can`t stay up all night.

    I fish with my better half tkeyhunter as much as possible. I get alot of requests to take people fishing, but it is so much more fun and relaxing fishing with her. Some day she might even be able to keep up with me LMAO and I'm ducking because she is sitting beside me OH I just got kicked! We just got back from a weekend trip in Kentucky fishing the Ohio. Had a perfect weekend! Caught alot of fish, once she mastered the art of drifting. She caught the biggest fish of the trip and really enjoyed it. There are things that men can do to make it more enjoyable for their better half. I always have the necessities like toilet paper, bug spray, suntan lotion, snacks and cold drinks. When she is ready to go it is time to go, in the beginning don't expect them to stay out all day/night. If she only wants to go for an hour then go for an hour, next time she might stay a little longer. For Gods sake be patient my better half can be down right scary oops I think NO I JUST GOT KICKED AGAIN! Gotta go.

    My wife loves to go fishing with me and I enjoy having her go with me, after being in the Navy for 22 years I promised myself that after I retired I would spend as much time with my better half and kids as I could.:smile2:
