Unfortunately, my wife worries too much about my safety all by my lonesome on the shore fishing.
My compromise with her was to do my best find a buddy who wanted to go fishing. My current job gives me plenty of time off, so I'm pretty flexible. I don't own a truck or a boat, but I do own my own car and tackle.
I'm willing to chip in for gas as long as it's reasonable. (Remember that job I told you about? Yeah, it pays about what you'd expect it to as well.)
Currently I usually fish for bass and catfish, but I'll haul in anything I can land. I generally practice catch and release. The only stuff I keep is definitely legal, and then it is usually pretty big anyway. They don't go to waste either, so I never keep more than I can use either.
Last but not least, I'm in Wake County, NC.
Hope to hear from someone soon. Good luck, and great fishing!
