After reading and entering in The Fiberglass Manifesto’s weekend contest, it got me thinking. Wow, time really is flying by. There are quite a things that I had planned in my head to do this summer, but just haven’t found the time to do so.
Some of the things that I haven’t been able to do this summer, yet.
- I haven’t fished or even thought of quite a few of my local lakes.
- Canoe, camp, and fish on the Wisconsin River.
- Camping at Lake Shelbyville.
- Canoe, camp, and fish on the Current River in Missouri.
- Trout fishing in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin.
I set out this year to explore new water, and I have done so. That’s the reason I haven’t been able to do some of the things I’ve been so used to doing the past few years. The change in trips has me missing those other places I once fished. Maybe, just maybe, I will find some time to make a day trip to the Driftless area before the season closes.
|Love the streams of Southwest Wisconsin.|
I guess if I’m in dire need of trip that will bring trout to hand, I can always explore new water in Iowa or Michigan.
Anyone else have some plans that just didn’t happen?
I already know that Mark at Northern California Trout is bummed about not being able to make Half Moon Bay State Beach. Hope you’re able to make the best of not going, Mark!

Thanks Justin. We're heading to a new lake around the 20th. Hopefully I won't have any more problems with the truck or I'll be getting a new one shortly.
Justin, for me, it has not been a strong year for Bluegill in my area. I have fished more this year in number of trips, but, nothing to be proud of or show off on my blog. Hoping for a better fall season on the ponds and in the Big Thompson River.
I haven't been camping nearly as much as I wanted to this summer but that just means I have to camp more this fall, lol. I did want to do some all night catfishing out at Black butte lake with my Chico buddies but haven't been able to do so. Oh well, maybe i can get one in in the next couple of weeks.
Well, I've got my fingers crossed you don't need a new truck, Mark!
I have noticed that I have had a hard time finding the bigger fish this year, too. Maybe they'll come out to play for us this fall!
There is still time for you, unless, you have things planned from here on out, like me. There's always next year. Just remember to make some time for it. I will be on my first official camping/canoeing/fishing trip in a few weeks. All of my other trips, I have been sleeping in my car. Haha…not really camping.
