I'm heading to Ireland and I need fishing "tips" on how to trick the wife into letting me chase some of those monster european Pike and Perch. We're leaving Tomorrow and coming back Sunday so the trip is short but I think I have to squeeze in a few hours of fishing somewhere along the line. According to a couple articles I have read, 20+ lb pike are quite common as well as 2lb+ perch. How can I turn that down? Ive tried to talk her into it and the only responses i've gotten out of her are "keep dreaming" and "kiss my a$$". Im at a loss and i'm asking for help from fellow fisherpeople on how to talk the sig. other into a short fishing trip during a vacation weekend. Any and all help is appreciated. No matter how off the wall the suggestion is, I will try it as I am at the end of my rope here lol. Give me some excuses. Also, any suggestions as to how I can sneak the rod tube into the luggage as well would be appreciated lol. Kind of hard to hide it. Have some fun with this as I think it's going to have to be an off the wall suggestion for me to convince her. Maybe just the constant nagging and crazy excuses will get her to say "screw it just go" haha.
