Sitting here at home after walking the dog around the block in my down jacket and it hits me: summer is over and so is all day/night summer fishing. Looking back, I feel like I took my opportunities to go fish and did just that, but it feels different. Our family doubled in size 2 months ago, and I wasn't able to take those overnight trips like in the past, and I'm cool with it, but I find myself wondering what would have been. Fishing outings will need to be more planned, more wife approval will be needed, and day trips will be the norm. But, such is life, and life is good these days, so I'll just shut the hell up and drink my Dale's while watching competition bass fishing on TV (damn that stuff is boring).
