Waiting Gets Me Down
« on: April 08, 2018, 12:19:59 PM »
I don’t know how else to describe what I have been experiencing.  It seems like each spring, I lose valuable fishing time waiting on one thing or another.  Over the past three years, I have missed the spring bite due to multiple circumstances.  Same goes for this year.
 
Two years ago the big motor blew up and had to have a new power head.  Although the new powerhead was a quick deal the circumstance leading to the blown motor caused a significant delay while I was negotiating with a service provider whom I believe caused the blown motor to start with.  All in all I missed all of the months of March and April.  Also two years ago the fall bite was lost due to severe weather conditions that resulted in two separate floods in our area and a hurricane. These delays essentially ended our boating season on the river during September and October.
 
One year ago we were again plagued by record floods and the months of April and May were once again lost.  Damage resulting from the flood screwed up the river for the entire summer.  When it became possible to run the river then DNR decided to defoliate the area once again ruining the late summer and fall bite. 
 
So here we are again. We had decided to bring the old Ranger up to date by adding a new trailer, a new cover and new carpeting. While all of these things are needed it has again impacted our spring fishing.  The only good news has been the weather has been rotten so that has softened the blow a bit.  I sure hope the weather does not get ugly again this year and we can hopefully recover some of this lost time.
 
The cumulative effect of all this waiting has me both bummed out and excited.  I am excited about all the new stuff but bummed out by the waiting.  This is driving me crazy.    On top of all of this I have to find a way to tell She Who Shall Be Obeyed that the new carpet will not be the blue color she wanted.  The new carpet is grey and I hope she likes it and I think she will.
