    It would not make me quit fishing forever. I would stop for the day. I'm pretty sure of that.

    Go Sox,

    I'm not saying quit fishing forever...just for steelhead...maybe. Easy for me to say that right now from the comfort of my own couch.

    If I hook a #30...the person that wakes me up is going to be truly sorry!

    I don't usually quit, I just start doing bullshit that people can't say can be done. You ever been one of those folks who have done something like that? If not, take a day after a fish or two and try. Sometimes you can end up being pleasantly surprised, but most of the time you get skunked....

    The argument you have made is completely different, but yes I will admit, catching more will typically give you a longer term advantage of that fish of a lifetime.

    It really is up to you on how to use the resource, and I didn't fault you for it. But in this day and age of lots of people in Washington, something is going to give. More than likely, it'll be the fish.

    Funny, the 30# fish often corresponds to the orgy with supermodels during the fight.... Hard to concentrate, more difficult to control the line......

    I just read all of these posts and had to go back to the first one to see what this was originally about. I think the forum is having technical issues and randomly posting things in the wrong area. :)

    Nice fish Irafly!

    Confession: I'm as big of a steelhead virgin as Danielocean. It's true! I just get on the steelhead forum sometimes because it's fun to watch how easy steelheaders can get all butt-hurt.
    Double confession: I'm a non steelheading, trashfishing(note avatar), slimy troll:(

    Triploid, if you listen to the steelheaders they'll tell you that after your first steelhead you'll lose your job, wife, life savings, sanity, etc. I'd have done all of those anyway so figured why not be miserable at both life and steelheading.

    Truth is, carp were laughing at me so hard I went back to an easier foe.

    Staring at stock tickers turn green and red all day can be slow moving, especially on days like today.

    Taking heat over bobber jokes, however...now that can get a day moving
