    Greetings,
    I just joined and this is my first posting
    I am a retired electronic engineer. I retired 3 years ago at the age of 68 after spending 43 years designing various electronic equipment; about one-half of that time in private industry and the latter half with the USG. As a kid, I loved fishing, but living in West Texas as a youth did not give me much of an opportunity to fish. I always looked forward to going to East Texas to visit relatives so that I could get a chance to fish with my uncle who was one of the most enthusiastic fishermen that I ever knew. We would get in his 10 ft. boat with the 5 hp Johnson before sunrise and never touch shore until after dark. I loved every minute of it. We fished mostly for bass and crappie. He always out fished me very badly, but it didn’t matter. Later in life, career demands and graduate school did not give me much time for fishing, so now that I am retired, I am starting to get back into it. So far, I am doing surf fishing in FL (I am a snowbird) and bass fishing with my son in VA. I enjoy getting outside on the water as much as the fishing.
