Fishing across America for RVers
Nothing creates better bonds than fishing. If you don’t believe it, just latch onto your grandkids and take them fishing. Watch their eyes light up at catching a blue gill or some other plentiful sunfish. Also be prepared to feel your own heart pick up a little speed, and then melt as you gently guide their way. A cousin of mine and I, no matter how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other, have a closeness that we developed as kids while fishing. Nothing seemed better when you’re 10 or 12 than going fishing together.
Many RVers love to fish. They seem to find some pretty creative ways to drag, carry, or pull a boat along, and of course there’s always fishing gear stored away somewhere handy in their rigs.
Bass fishermen are unique lot. They consider bass fishing an athletic sport. They work out their arms and legs for the extended casting and standing necessary to consistently pull in trophy bass. Many have tens of thousands tied up in their boats and equipment. Many consider entry fees to tournaments operating expenses. If you are one of these fishermen, I don’t have anything to tell you. You already know everything I know and then some.
If you are just starting out with fishing, a few tips may help.
A little study on fish, structure, and learning to read streams and lakes can save a lot of frustration. Great books and videos abound that will help you learn the beginning of the art of fishing quickly and easily. Helping to select tackle, fishing with lures or live bait, fishing licenses, all are necessary things to consider. Many states have discounts for seniors. Many have reciprocal agreements between neighboring states. Checking online for fishing regulations can get you educated pretty quickly. Deciding whether to buy a 7-day license or annual depends on your plans for how long you’re staying and how often you expect to fish.
Fishing is fun, especially with a buddy. You can spend many pleasant hours fishing.
