Why does it seem like all of the places I want to fish are places I would cringe to step foot into? I have tossed a fly or two into milfoil-choked areas, but that was from a canoe. I'd often wonder if anyone actually wades or float-tubes these places where there are all manner of creepy-crawlies and cooties to be had? I've heard that snapping turtles - especially the huge ones can be pretty territorial, and will attack you if you get into their area. Then there are snakes. Oh, and leeches. Let's not forget gators!
I'm interested in hearing any stories you guys might have about this. Come on, now... its going to be a long winter!
