I’m sure there will behundreds of outdoor-related blogs in the Internet world this week about Thanksgiving. I don’t care. Here is another one.

Hunting and Fishing Things I’m Thankful For:

Magnetic brakes on fishing reels

Low-profile fishing reels

The Ruger 10/22

Thanksgiving and Christmas morning hunts

Opening days

Fall fish migration

Fog-free scope lenses

The defrost/foot heat option in my truck

Insulated bib overalls

Vertical jigging -the easiest fishing with gloves

Briar-proof pants

Board shorts – for when fishing turns into swimming

A sharp knife

Baitfish dip nets

Wood-burning furnaces

Sausage gravy – for after a cold day

Potato soup – same as above

Pretuned crankbaits

Coffee and doughnuts – for before a cold day

The color Junebug

Weedless frogs


Brushy barnyards

White-tailed deer antlers

Crappie creel limits

Google Earth

Flip flops


A cruising Ranger on a hot day

Jumping fish
