I take fishing fairly casually where I live as I have at least 4 lakes within a 10 mile drive. I can go out in the morning and fish for a few hours and come back with with no big problem. Boats are on trailers and I just hook up the night before and go out in the morning. I talked to a gentleman at a landing one time who was from Missouri who had to drive a couple of hours just to get to the lake. My father had to drive about an hour or so to fish. He bought a resort in MN and of course then we lived on a lake. See a few postings where I expect fishing is a whole day affair and wonder what others have to do to enjoy it. Probably something I take for granted.
