But not for long!!! One of my biggest issues fishing is knowing how to produce an offshore rig, or any rig for the matter. I fail at it… but it’s something I really want to be better at. So what’s a girl to do? Beg friends to teach her – always while fishing of course (bad timing)? Stay home every night and practice, practice, practice? Maybe take a class about it? <—— now there is the thought of a genius. Looking forward to that.
We can talk about this out-loud here… some people cannot tie a rig, any, and are stubborn about it. You’ll fish with them and they will lose inshore 6 out of 10 times. They are fishing 30 % and re-rigging 40% and stealing all the TWIZZLERS the rest of the time. Think of all the time you spend re-rigging for yourself (or helping someone else).
I always admire people who have all their weapons ready the night before. I want to be like that. Produce when I can be away from the water and concentrate, do it right, test it.
So it’s crunch time. The most important component to landing that fish. I’ll be looking for tips, instructions, what works the best, video’s, taking a class…. asking lot’s of questions and for instructions, etc.
By spring I hope to able to make most my own successfully! In the past I have had help (thank you). Thinking back too I think I have been immensely lucky with anything I personally produced and actually landed a fish on.
So my plan is learn and practice… just like during daylight you’ll catch me outside practicing with the fly rod (I promise) at night I am going to concentrate on the making rigs.
I want to be ready. It’s important to me to be self-sufficient out there. But please have patience this is all still new to me.
oh and please don’t ask me to gaff anything, I am not great at that yet either but I am a suppa star with the net….. LOL
