    In another post, someone mentioned that a poll should be taken on this subject, so here it is.
    I mostly bank fish. Not by choice though. :roll_eyes:

    I fish mostly from my boat, but sometimes use the boat to get to a good spot to bank fish.

    Im a boat man. I use to fish off the bank all the time. It would still be enjoyable to bank fish, no barges to worry about ect.

    "...but sometimes i dream what it would be like to be a captian and be able to fish the depths..."

    Sounds like a line from an Ernest Hemingway novel.

    Thats me too!!

    I have a boat, but I want to be a captain. Why you ask? Not to be a guide or anything like that. I just want to be able to put "Captain Wyliecat" on my fishing shirts!!!

    Don't have a legal boat so I'm mostly bank bound unless I'm lucky enough to get to go with some one who has a boat. :sad2:

    I fish from both bank and boat...but I prefer the boat. I like to get away from the crowd and also hunt for less pressured fish. I'm not too fond of fishing the community spots.

    I have no boat, therfore I'm on the bank cattin'.....and not doin' too good lately truth be told. Til I get a boat, it's settin' campfires, playin' vintage country music, and enjoyin' fruitful (or unfruitful) bank catfishing. Right or wrong, I always have fun.

    I've heard that so many times & I just don't understand it. If you have a boat, use it or sell it! LOL

    Eric,

    Its not that he doesnt want to use it I think its more that he gets frustrated easily. The price of gas doesnt help either LOL. He is 82 and since his stroke a couple of years ago has lost alot of his patience I think that is the main reason. If I had the money I would offer to buy it from him.

    I am stuck with the rest of the bank fishermen. when I get some of the other bills paid off and a bigger truck, I'll think about getting a boat.
