Fisherman are a mad, crazy bunch or characters.
It's tempting to ditch the grind of everyday life to live as a fish bum somewhere where the tides are favorable and the drinks are cheap. The classic Jimmy Buffett or Kenny Chesney lifestyle fits nicely into the world of fishing the flats.
It's good-time hedonism at its finest.
This bunch of ne'er-do-wells, like a crew of traveling circus workers, follow the tides and the good weather. You can do the same, at least for the morning.
Once you're back on dry land it's up to you to shake off that call to the wild.
The ocean will still be there after you get off work.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
