    I went out to do some catfishing this afternoon and much to my dismay, my biggest nemesis was out if full force: the wind. We were dealing with 20-25 mph winds with gusts of 31 mph.

    So, my question to anyone who reads this is, what is your worst nemesis? Wind, heat, humidity, cold, a nagging wife, etc.

    well 20-25 mph winds are an everyday thing here, and a good wind stirs up the baitfish! i'd have to say my biggest nemesis would be when i get in my uniform, feed the dogs, and it's such a nice day that my sick time is just begging to be used!

    My biggest nemisis is my recliner. Every time I get my fat a$$ out of it and go fishing, I have a good time. Sometimes I even catch something.

    gas prices and state lisense fees on boat & trailer & fish/liscense and all the tax on gear.:angry: tax on the gas, tax on the beer. i thinks that sums it up:angry: and having to read a 30 page book on rules every year to avoid a $75 ticket. at least for now the book is free.

    wont be long youll need to pay a fee for a tag for each rod. and tags for hooks and tags to use dead fish for bait. and it will cost $500 a month to fish. why dont they just drive us all to the dessart like we did to the natives.

    seems like the rich polotitions are trying.

    Speaking for all of the "Bank Fishermen out there" it's "The Weather (Wind & Rain)". :angry:

    The Wind & The Rain can kill a fishing trip for us, I know that it do for me because "I Hate" fishing in a heavy Wind & the Rain bring "Mud", and Mud & Bank Fishing don't go good together.

    I try to Brock The Rain out by saying to myself that "the rain bring more water for the Fish":0a14: - but that in not working to well anymore.
    :wink:LoL

    Take it easy, :0a23:

    The amount of time I can spend fishing is my only one, but that really is relative, so I don't complain too much.

    Lack of time is my nemesis. The wife has this way of making plans for us before she checks in with me, so that cuts in to the fishing.

    The wind can be bad, too, but I can deal with it. Being from Nebraska, I learned long ago that you either deal with the wind or you don't get out much.

    Time, Money and Rain in that order.

    Cause when I find the time to go, I usually have no money or its raining.

    I just thought of another one. For me, it's a small boat motor for the type of water I generally fish on. The tourneys around here are mostly on the Illinois river and I only have a 40hp motor. I get around 20mph with it, but some of the best spots are around 10 to 15 miles up river and there's a large section that is no wake, so it takes me about an hour to get to the good spots and an hour back and in a seven hour tourney, that's a big chunk of time.

    Calm water is the biggest problem. It's bad enough in a lake, but when the river doesn't have any current, you might as well leave your tackle at home and just enjoy the scenery. Of course, high water is a problem, too, unless it's flooding, then the cats are feeding in the freshly flooded areas.
