Somthing that Id advise you to try.... Would be my way of relaxing, and learning tons of stuff, in a off time exposure of " fishing, my way" If you had the chance of having a weeks vacation, or your just not working, save a very small amount of money, and travel to a port, along the east or west coast, at a convenient time. Find, parked in the sail boat parking, and office attending, are boat owners, that'll take you along, on a trip, just for a small bit of assistance, running the boat. Fishing galore and no mosquitos and one serious, magnitude of fun. Don't need no sic pack to rocket ready myself, for that. In hurricane season, you travel out to sea 90 degrees to shore, so winds die down a bit and waves too. Then you go south or north. One week out there will levitate your ass with a ton of smile. Turn you into sunshine.
