How do you make it work?
This question is one that I think everyone has to answer for themselves, but I'm curious how many of y'all have enabled yourselves to fish a satisfying amount.
I am 29 and have access, anytime I want it, to a boat, which is four hours away. The billfishing grounds are another 2 to 5 hours past that. Between keeping the new wife happy, trying to be successful at work and balancing other commitments, finding the time to get to the coast, prepare the gear, get out there, fish and get back sometimes seems next to impossible. Chartered flights and a faster boat are out of the question for now. Mind you, I'm not whining. I get to fish five to seven times a year so I realize I'm fortunate, but it just doesn't feel like enough. I'd fish two to three times a week if I could but that hasn't been possible.
So what tricks or paths have y'all found that at least have you satisfied at the end of the season that you were able to fish enough? All theories or practical advice is welcome. Hope everyone has had/is having a great season!
