Only lost about 20 this year which is much fewer than normal. Time to replace them!

I dunno what it is, but those things just don't seem to put up much of a fight when you hook them. :dunno:

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Thats how I do it. No license required. Don’t need a boat. No rods and reels and tackle boxes. Season is open all year round, 24hrs a day. Never have to bait a hook or untangle lines or nets. Cleaning is quick and easy.

It’s a no-brainer.

Yea but its all about the hunt and the fight! Trying to catch something you usually can't see and then fighting a 300 pound fish for an hour or more or trying to sneak up on a natural trout without spooking it. Then the greater satisfaction knowing you did it with stuff you made yourself. You just don't get that with fish sticks!

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

What are you talking about? The fish sticks don’t see me until I open the box. By then it’s to late for them.... the oven is preheated, the pan is ready, and they don’t stand a chance. I have to fight with the bag to open it, arrange them on the pan, then try to get them in the oven with my kid, wife or cat getting in the way,

It sounds like the same thing to me.

But then you can’t play with dynamite?

Crossed threads are tight threads.
I fish for bearded clam. It is rare and elusive, also the bait and tactics varies depending on season and location...the ultimate hunt!

I came here thinking you were making DIY spinning rims too. Kind of a letdown.
