My girlfriend is an amazing woman.  She is not only an extremely patient person, but she is also very supportive, both good qualities when dealing with an addict such as myself.  Now one might think that she is an enabler, and that may be true to some degree, but for Christmas this year, she got me a watch.  But this is no ordinary time keeping watch, this is a Casio Fishing Gear Watch!  It has the lunar charts built into it and it uses this information to give you the exact time of day that is best for fishing based upon these cycles of the moon  and the longitude at which you live!!  Amazing technology!! ( See my article, “Back In My Day…”)  The instructions state that there are 5 levels starting with zero fish filled in and working up to four fish filled in.  I have affectionately come to know these indicators as One, Two, Three, or Four Fish O’clock.  Unlike the Mayans, I don’t find much use for zero when it comes to time to fish.  As far as I am concerned, zero fish o’clock is that horrible time when it is best to find something else to do because there is nothing better going on.( see my article – “My Awesome-Sauce New Fishing Rod Holder”)  Actually, I have not yet not gone fishing when it is zero fish o’clock as the scientific data on this thing is still untested in my opinion, but I would like to say that based on more than a few test days, the watch and it’s indicators seem to be pretty much right in line.  I have yet to catch a fish when it is zero fish-o’clock and I have seen action turn on for me as well as for other anglers around me when the magic four fish-o’clock indicator lights up.  At any rate, If you have some patience for me, eventually this web site will have the ability for you the user to log in your catches and I what time of day the fish were caught, and I will then cross reference that against the information on the  charts and give an up-to-date account on how well the average fisherman is doing compared to what the lunar cycle says!  Wow – exciting stuff boys and girls!  Until that time, if you would like to know more about what fish o’clock it is going to be for your next fishing trip, let me know and I’ll try and reply to your request.  There are two versions of this watch by Casio that I am aware of ( Thanks to my friend Rick for introducing me to this thing!).  One will only tell you what is in store for the next 24 hours, the other, which I am very fortunate to own, will tell you what fish 0’clock it is for whenever you want.  This information can come in very handy for a fella – especially if you are on a fishing trip with the boys and you are going to want to plan your drinking and hangovers around what the best fishing times are going to be!  Think about the possibilities!  Good luck fishing friends and see you on the water when it is four fish o’clock!

    Hi Stef I find the website interesting, maybe it’s because I know you?
    I know you have touched on the topic of fishing with your kids. I suggest that if your readers can stand country music they should listen to Trace Adkins song Just Fishin. I remember taking my girls Paula and Katie out fishing and this song sums up the message better than I can. My parents Glen and Ruth loved to fish and had a trailer and boat that provided access easily, when the girls where growing up. One of my fondest memory was when Katie was around 10 years old caught a small perch and after daddy toook it off the hook we had to put it back, Katie had to release this small fish, she kissed it on the lips and then released it while appologising and hoped it didn’t hurt the fish too bad. Times have changed and we don’t get out fishing much now as they have grown up with kids of their own. Now I get to do this all over again with my Grandkids London and Stirling, ( I did not name them). Their parents have been with me and Paula can still get snagged in the tree behind her? All parents should find the time to create these memories with their children or grandkids. Have fun and create and enjoy these memories. They are priceless!
    Your friend Rick
