Hello dear friends & Fam's, Well it's finally happened, it hurts too dadgum much to go fishin! I was planning to go out this week but I just can't, my lower back has been playing hell w/ me for a week or so and my feet & anckles which I mentioned in my last post were numb after getting up in the a.m. are now pretty much numb & tingling all day!
I have an apt. w/ my pain Doc this afternoon and hoping for some answers on the feet thing as my primary doc thinks it's nerves in my back causing it! I don't expect any help w/ the back pain though as he upped my methadone by one 10mg a day a couple months ago which might have helped, it's hard to tell when your going down hill!!! So upping meds is pretty much outa the question and since I've had every other form of help (P/T, shots, acupuncture, chiro> you name it> except surgery which I've been putting off for over ten years!
So for now, no fishing stories for a while!! It just figures, (watch out! Here comes the BIG pitty party!)>> just when it's gonna cool off and the fishing will be the best of the year, my fav fishing month> Red October> Redfish flood into the Nature Coast and are hungry and chowing down for winter!!! And> Grouper come in shallow to spawn and the season
opens for 2 months on Gag & Red grouper! The schools of mullet (baitfish) are headed south w/ lots of preditors on their heels> Sharks, Tarpon, Kingfish, Spanish mackeral, Bluefish, Big Jack Creval, and my favorite gamefish of all> Snook.
Also as a 30th wedding anniversary last Sunday, my wife told me to go buy a new sal***er trolling motor!!! Mine has been broken for years and I couldn't afford to get it fixed! I told her thanks soooo much for knowing what I want/need more than anything to help me catch redfish & snook but new ones are crazy expensive!!!!!!! So I took my old broken one the other day to a dealership and asked him if they could fix it??? I got a call yesterday w/ an estiment of under $300. > New ones are $1000. and up!!! So I'm getting mine fixed and GRRRRRRRRRRR> won't be able to use it!!!! I shouldn't be like this and don't like myself for thinking stupid things but I'll tell Y'all anyway. I'm a member of a local fishing Forum here on the Nature Coast of Fla. I consider myself a pretty good fisher and do catch lots of fish but w/o a trolling motor to fish along the mangrove islands and coastline, I'm all but out of the ballgame when it comes to catching my favorite fishes!!! Other Forum members are always posting pictures of big redfish & evan sometimes snook but I seldom do and it hacks me off! I've fished w/ some of these guys and although most are nice guys, most are not great fishers, they just have the right equiptment! I can't believe I'm telling Y'all this, what a looser/crybaby I am!!! I better go get my testosterone level checked!!! Sorry everyone!> GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
I hope Y'all have a better day tham I'm having!
Love All Y'all!!!!!
