I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

And the verdict is ...

Tennis elbow to the Nth degree. Actually seeing the muscle tear off the bone. Doctor calls for ice, ibuprofen, elbow straps, and physical therapy. Oh ... and no fishing for a month. The way it feels right now ... that won't be a problem.

Still not good!

Fished for two hours Sunday night with Andy. Got 6 under docks. Saw some nice females cruising and may have had a couple of them bite. Couldn't hold the rod tight ... couldn't set the hook. See the orthopedist tomorrow. It's going to be a looooooong summer. Got to get this taken care of before the salmon start coming in!

Sorry for the lack of reports!

Sorry about the lack of reports, but it's not because I've been negligent. The fact of the matter is ... I think I have "fisherman's elbow". Can't stretch it out, can't straighten it out ... just a lot of pain. I'll endure it on Sunday to fish with my son because I think the females will be in post spawning mode. Then its off to the doc on Wednesday. This could be a long hot summer without fishing!
