It all started when I was about 2 years old, my dad would take me(yes I am a woman)and my 3 sisters out fishing all the time. My sisters lost interest when they were about 12 years old. As for me, my passion for fishing is so strong I would rather be fishing then getting diamond rings, a mall shopping spree, a manicure and pedicure, you get get my point. I captain my own boat for 3 years now, I catch my own bait and filet my fish. Most of my life I have always fished with men until just recently. I met a woman who never fished before and asked me to take her fishing. Within hours I had her dragging the net for spearing and peanut bunker(that was in the fall) digging for clams and worms, tying clinch knots, making tackle, baiting her own hooks, taking the fish off the hook and finally fileting. Wow, I finally met someone of the same species that loves fishing like I do, she is hooked. Next I'm going to teach her to make fishing poles. When the kids get out of school we take her 4 children (ages 8 through 12) and my twin boys (8 years old) on the boat fishing, it's kinda like fishing kiddie camp. It can get a little crazy some times but our patience gets us through it (allright I confess,sometime we will have a shot of vodka when we get to stressed). The biggest difference I find between men and woman fishing is that woman have a lot more patience. For example, when we fluke fish we gradually lift the line when we get a hit, some of the guys I fish with would jerk the pole so hard you would think they'd pulled the jaw right out of the fishes mouth. 9 out of 10 fluke hits me and my friend will get a hook up. To sum this story up I just wanted to tell woman out there who might be reading this not to be intimidated by the sport of fishing or driving a boat, women can do it to and sometime even better!!!

Now now Matt, she hasn't been around since the last go around. Don't chase Onemoredrift away too. JACKSON hasn't even been around that much. (If you're wondering what I'm talking about, go here. If you have half a day to kill, it could be entertaining.

I'm happy to see women anglers participating here. Welcome to the site.

Richard, that's a great website for if you live on the west coast, do you know of any on our coast? And yes I am out of the closet, but don't worry you will be safe in Valley Stream.

don't know if yo're still contemplating getting married. As far as I recall - that was never resolved in the W&F Thread.
I'd suggest you try to contact OMD here. Wouldn't be any need to hide the gear.

My turn. I'm a woman too. My real name is Jacqueline. I've been fishing all of my life. Remember that woman who was the other swordfish captain in the "perfect Storm" movie? She and I could pass for twins. I've been offshore probably a close to a thousand times and I'm proud of it!
