I forgot how many trout I had caught this year. I had to go back and look through all my old blog posts and add them up, so far I have 105. We are planning on 3 to 4 days in Erie before the year ends so hopefully I will be able to catch 45 steelhead/brown trout. That is 11.25 fish everyday and the most I have caught on one day is one. That means I will have to do about 12 times better each day to accomplish this, man this is going to be tough. I also noticed that a lot of my posts in the past have had some serious spelling and grammatical mistakes, I am going to try very hard to make sure that doesn't happen as often. I guess this might be the reason I am majoring in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology and not English.

Fishing and Hunting

Went out Friday for some pheasant hunting and didn't see a thing. It sucked, and I am so unlucky when it comes to pheasant this year. My brothers and dad went Saturday and they got 3 and kicked several more up.

 I was out fishing with my friends though who came back for a weekend from college. It was a pretty bad day of fishing. My friend caught 1 trout, and after about 20 more chubs we just decided to fish for them. We ended up with 50+ chubs and 1 trout, not to fun, but at least I got to go out and fish with my friends again. Our next trip will be to Erie for steelhead over Thanksgiving break in about a month. They took a few pictures, hopefully I can get them and put them up on here.

Been hunting

Between hunting and school work i really haven't had time for the blog. I will tell you how it has been though. Terrible, I got one shot at a pheasant about 40 yards away, had to shoot a rapid opossum and am failing a class. Hopefully I will be heading out tomorrow hunting for some pheasant after school, and then Saturday I will be going fishing with my buddy who is coming home for the weekend. Hopefully I will get some pictures or will have some stories to post.

It's impossible to have the perfect balance of fishing and studying. My grades were pretty bad the first couple of weeks and I have been struggling to keep them up, this has caused me to not fish a lot. I did make it out one time though. My friend and I went out trout fishing, only caught 1, he caught 2. It was a pretty crappy day. The fish had only been in there a day and were stacked on each other, very hard not to snag. My buddy is coming home 2 weeks from now and we are going out for a few hours to hopefully catch a few. I also haven't been able to really go out and use my camera, if I am not at school or studying for it, I am usually sleeping, I wish college was how it was portrayed in movies, definitely isn't though. Also I may be going out tomorrow hunting for some grouse, don't get your hopes up though, pretty tired and not a huge grouse population around here. I will definitely be going out next week though, opening day of pheasant, can't miss that.
