Updated on August 25, 2016

H. Andelsmen realized her girlfriends were asking advice, often, because she herself has been through so much, so she decided to share.

What is the Bait Bucket?

The Bait Bucket is intended for use as a 'tackle box' which can be referenced and utilized as a preparation tool in order to become a better fisherman or...a fisher of men. A full education on the sport of fishing must cover all aspects including terrain, hazards, and potential snags.

The introductory article laid out the three different types of fishermen. Before diving in deeper and discussing techniques and circumstances, it seems best to break down each component involved and then proceeding from there. Therefore, this piece will cover territories that can be fished and how that particular it is relative to the dating world. Of course fishing territory involves water, so for the purposes of The Bait Bucket, three bodies of water are declared as territory and are presented as points of reference in upcoming scenarios.

Bodies of Water

One chooses where to fish based on what the target catch is. MOST of the time. Keeping in mind that some species can be located in multiple bodies of water, i.e. some freshwater species may be found in both lakes and rivers. View the following not as contrasting comparisons but as a reflective mirrored portrayal, as in the body of water portrayed as a scenario for potential dating, I mean fishing.

Event

  • Topography

A course with an agenda, channeled between a start time and an end time

  • Flow

Steady movement, non-repetitive, headed toward an end point

  • Ecosystem

Species in all phases of life cycle, and migrating for a specific purpose

  • Hazards

Overwhelming response, rapid drop in excitement levels, drowning

Stream or River

  • Topography

A course, or stream bed, channeled between to banks

  • Flow

Steady movement, whitewater, no tidal current, downhill

  • Ecosystem

Larvae, algae, organisms, migratory fishes

  • Hazards

Flooding, Waterfalls, Whitewater Rapids


Discussion

A stream or river provides a certain comfort level because the water is clear and fresh and there are other things happening other than fishing. Word of caution, once entering the scene, one must know that you will encounter any number of obstacles, the possibility of treacherous terrain, and special protective equipment is a must. Bring the "waders" to keep safe and impenetrable...if you get my drift.

Loose translation, sometimes you may desire to attend an event to meet new people. By all means, please do so with full knowledge that the primary objective of others are simply to enjoy the event which they most likely paid to attend and not only to fish; therefore, distraction is a common hindrance and the clock is ticking away this time.

Place

  • Topography

An enclosed structure, surrounded by walls

  • Flow

Stagnant, activity is event induced, i.e. dancing, eating, etc

  • Ecosystem

Various species mostly of matured stage of life cycle, deliberately present

  • Hazards

Lukewarm attention, thin attendance, muddy motives

Lake

  • Topography

A basin, surrounded by land

  • Flow

Stagnant, no whitewater, no current, activity is event induced

  • Ecosystem

Bacteria, biotic plants, non-migratory fish, amphibians

  • Hazards

Icing, thin ice, muddy water

Discussion

The lake sets the stage for interactive scenarios or one can sit on the bank and skip rocks. Sometimes there is even a rope swing for those simply seeking entertainment and not even there to fish. Special note: some fish have swam that murky water since creation and are able to withstand the harshest winters, ice overs, and the ebb and flow of drainage. Bring the row boat, you may need the oars to push off a dead log, or two, or three...

Loose translation, fishing in set scenarios is a common occurrence. One may foolishly believe that chances are increased because there are set parameters and only so many places to hide. Oh, contraire. Although this fish bowl contains many more fish, it pays to know that you will pull that hook back empty many more times that not because these fish are adaptive and sly, often taking your bait and fleeing before you even felt the bite.

Internet

  • Topography

A vast cyberspace, hosting your worst dating nightmares 24/7

  • Flow

Consistent current with wave after wave of activity

  • Ecosystem

Various species present, many unidentifiable, all phases of life cycle

  • Hazards

Undercurrents, viruses, blowfish, CATFISH

Ocean

  • Topography

A vast basin, covering 72% of the earth's surface

  • Flow

Deep water and surface currents, waves present

  • Ecosystem

Fish, marine mammals, birds, crustaceans, plankton, turtles

  • Hazards

Tidal waves, rip tides, typhoons, hurricanes


Discussion

Ahoy mate! Venturing out into the wild blue yonder is not for the weary. You will encounter choppy waters, the Bermuda triangle, the Kraken, and your ship may even be capsized. Actually, heed fair warning that it is most likely that you will experience all of these, but hopefully in separate occurrences. Special note: fishermen of the sea are a rare breed, are fully aware of the dangers that lie ahead and shall remain undeterred.

Loose translation, the Internet can provide an abundance of opportunity. Proceed with caution as it is often used as a thoroughfare for those who typically would never even leave the house, let alone fish. To be fair, a gaming console with a fishing game and pole attachment may lie nearby. Don't take anything to seriously and be cognizant that he may only be out to, tackle your box.

Until Next Time

You now have the types of fishermen and territories. Please stay tuned for upcoming portrayal of "techniques". Happy fishing...
