Fish and fry , DON'T !! ....... now I have been through all kinds of stuff chasing fish ....... on the Bay saltwater in power boats , on rivers and resiviours , in canoes and nice Jon boats ........ and I have braved many , many different weather conditions ........ I don't like freezing my butt off , but will do it without hesitation to catch fish ....... I even stretch the safty limits of craft and skill when things get rough on the water ( but I don't advise that ) ........ and if you think you are going to press the limits of weather while out on the water fishing , use a tripple dose of common sense and make well prepared with safty equipement , and always , always have a backup plan to escape if you get in over your head ........ know your craft and equipement , and know when you have reached your skill and experience limits for on water working capabilitys ......... the easiest way to sum up what I'm trying to say here , is , " if you are getting a bit nervous or a tinge of fear and fright is knawing at you while you are out there in less than optimal weather conditions " , get the heck out of there and off the water ASAP !!! ...... listen to the little birdie who is talking to you !!! ......... did I mention I am a pilot ....... well , the reason I mention it is because the first thing you are taught in training and then it is drilled into you time and time again , is that " your judgement is your most important asset when it comes to making critical decisions ....... combined with your knowledge and education and experience , your judgement will make the right choices for you if put safty first as your number one priority ........ the old saying goes , there are no old , bold pilots ......... I reckon it has served me well in all other activitys and recreations that involve and require any form of RISK MANAGEMENT ...... which by the way , most all do !!! ...... even fishing , remember the movie The Perfect Wave ??? ....... opps !!!
