Yep, my fishing buddy cashed in all his stuff to me, god, it was sad.

Gonna need a new fishing buddy. He'll be hard to replace.

What do you mean "cashed in"?

He gave up fishing altogether?
On his own terms?
No wife input/pressure?
You bought him out?


?

Sorry guys, thought you may have seen another thread from me about him moving to Delaware and selling his boat.

He gave me all his gear except for 2 rods he'll fish from the jetty with, I got his grab trap, rods reels, killy keeper, spare 5 gal gas cans etc.

TorFed is in Delaware. he could have helped him with the "Unloading" of the tackle.


Nice surpeise for you!

Haha, seriously. Anyways, OP, if he wants any advice for fishing from land I'll give him some spots.

Delaware has plenty of water, why give it up?

He's not giving it up, just going to fish from jetties and he needs rods that will cast so his smaller stuff he dropped on me. I think it also marks a change of life for him too, he recently had a small stroke and he's not as steady as he was prior to the stroke.

I even told him last time we went out on the water, I told him he needs to wear a life vest, and his cut off cord when he goes out alone, he wasn't happy with me but he understood where I was coming from.

He's far from an invalid and has been getting better every week, but if you don't look out for one another.....
