Re: got that fever?
Jayraider- The best fix I know of for the "fever" is to go fish anywhere you can, instead of waiting for a more legit real "fishing outing". If I'm guessing correctly that you're in Lubbock, that may be a bit of a challenge, but do what you can.
(best advice- find a job in San Antonio. The Guad, Medina, Blanco, and SA river are within an hour's drive. The Nueces, Pedernales, and the Coast within 2 hrs)
