think of it in reverse - it may take her 25 years to catch her first catfish/perch/striped bass/bluefish/big mouth bass. Until then she will just be going between trout and salmon and maybe some halibut and rock fish.
True, but I think any of us "Southerners" would agree, I'll trade 1000 bass for one of those!!!! They taste so much better... which coincidentally is why I throw back all my bass, but pay $11/lb for salmon at the market.
Maybe we can just trade a trip, you two can come down here and catch all the stripers and blues you want, and I'll come up there and head out with you
