It has been a long time since I've posted. Yes, I'm still alive. And yes, I've been keeping up with your fishing blogs (for those of you on my blog list). It's been fun to read about all of your adventures!
I have good news on multiple fronts. First of all, I finished my long overdue master's degree and have begun work on my PhD. I had to give up pretty much all my hobbies during the last few months, but now I should have a bit more free time, at least on weekends, to get out and do some fishing. The other good news is that my back has been slowly but steadily improving. I've stopped taking pain killers all together. I do stability exercises every day and use a foam roller to keep my back and legs loose in order to keep the tension off my lower back. My replacement for ibuprofin is raw ginger root. If you have problems with inflammation, give it a try. Your mouth and throat will feel like they're on fire, but it really helps.
Yesterday I made it out on my first fishing trip of the season. I traveled over to Milwaukee and went out on Lake Michigan with Terry. We trolled for salmon and trout, but didn't get any hits. It was still a great day nonetheless. I meant to take pictures, but my camera battery was dead right off the bat.
More posts to come soon!
