I guess you've never taken the time to show your wife the enjoyment of fishing...may want to take her out alone on the boat...with a couple of Coronas and limes around sunset...she may think twice about fishing..
Ken - IT's the basses fishing that's not her thing. She would fish all the time (May - Sept) above 70 degrees and below 90 degrees when we lived/fished in Houston. We'd take the old stump jumper (14 footer with a MASSIVE 5hp Mariner) out to Galveston bay for what ever would pull on those live shrimp. She just doesnt' go in for the extra time and effort for dem basses, tells me it's too much work.
Maybe if I was a better fisherman I could show her how much fun, but that would require more practice and more LURES! 'specially them sparkly ones (c)
