    I am really active when I'm fishing from the bank. Usually I'll fish 2 or 3 rods with cut or live bait on the bottom for catfish. Then sometimes I'll have another rod out with a minnow under a floater, and then be throwing lures for bass or panfish all the while. I seldom take a chair.

    When I am by myself I usually organize my fishing notes and make more. If someone is with me I do that really fast, then we sit and shoot the bull and drink a few beers and shoot a little more bull. After a little of that I hope one of the rods gets pulled down so we can have some more lies to talk about :wink:.

    Wait???? What wait??? I'm always reeling them kitties in one after another. Heck some nights I have to reel my lines in just so I can give my arms a brake from reeling in all those monsters!!!!!LOL:roll_eyes:
    OK seriously though, I'm a little bit on the paranoid side. I sit there until my eyes go cross, staring at my lines waiting for the next bite. I'm afraid to take my eyes off the line even for a moment. I will admit that even though I quit smoking, some nights a go though a pack of reds, just so I'll have something to do.

    I watch the line, read a book or magazine, take a nap, smoke lots of cigarettes, orgainize my tackle box, think about what would be a better bait, look at the fish I caught, if I caught one. Wonder if I shoulda been fishing someplace else.

    Up until recently , really nothing except maybe walk within close proximity to my things. Recently , I have been moving every 15 or 20 minutes between different visible bottom structure. One of these days , I'll bring a small radio provided it doesn't need earphones.

    I walk up and down the river bank casting my sabiki rig or throwing my castnet for bait. Always looking for bait. I know the farther I get away from my rods, the better chance I have of having a #50 blue try to rip my rigs out of their rod holders.

    With the technological advances these days, waiting for a flathead bite is not as grueling as it used to be.

    While waiting, I used to bring out my portable DVD player and watch movies. But now, I have a IPhone so I can watch videos or surf the net.

    Next there, I plan to post reports sitting on the bank!:cool2:
