outlook for fishing 2021?

Does it look like fishing rods/reals/lures will be on the shelves??
Will Kayaks be at the dealers?
Will most people be back at work (really going to work),, or will every back channel waterway look like a "canoe carnival"

I always have been able to take off during the week, if I work on the weekend.
So I always hunt/fish during the week and typ do not see anyone else.

2020 was a zoo, My typ kayak spots were inaccessible do to crammed parking, were years before it was typ me and one other car/truck.

I gave up hunting public land a few weeks in, the entire state had descended on every park to "recreate" ,, even if it was a designated DNR WMA

If Covid did you thing,, It showed me how over populated this country is.
A friend "mountain bikes" out west. what was "throw your bike on the rack and drive to a desert park" to bike, is now "get on a waiting list" for a permit. Same with running rivers, and just hiking.
We are so over populated we a "rationing" the natural resources.

If you can login to mdshooters, you might not be far enough off grid


Reality is all the cidiots came out to get away since they couldn't enjoy their "city culture" hopefully it will be less crowded this year.

I think you'll have to drive further anymore or hike deeper to get an in crowded spot

I wish I knew the answer to those questions. I want to go to Delmarva outdoor shooting range this week since the weather is going to be so nice but I am afraid every Tom Dick and Harry is going to be there. I hate crowds.

I did buy a new Shimano Vanford spinning reel last week so maybe I will try and find a quiet spot on the water instead.

Most of mid to late last year was slim pickings for fishing rods/reels and kayaks/canoes/etc.
But most of the places I frequent have restocked in the last month or so. Bass Pro in Arundel Mills was almost fully stocked last week.

I'm trying to upgrade 3 more rods and 2 more reels this spring and rods are back ordered but on the way.
Tackle Direct has only 1 Rod of any of the types of Tsunami I like to use. Waiting a month is not a big deal.
Last year when I ordered 3 on June, it took 3 weeks to arrive for the first, 4 weeks for the 2nd and the 3rd never arrived and they refunded me.

I have a bunch of light tuna/Mahi Trolling reels I need to replace the braid on. Need to get to work on that.

Temps next week in the 60's during the day, with lows no lower than the 40's at night.

Just what is needed to start heating up the waters for some bassin action!

I got out about 11:30 today and ended up with six nice ones. Best 5 went for around 16-17 pounds. Biggest was a 5.

I had no problem getting fly fishing tackle so there's that. I replaced my AWOL wading gear and will be testing it out this afternoon. Also got a 10' 7 wt rod for the shad/striper runs this spring. Looking forward to practice casting this afternoon, too. Saturday, I'm heading to Shenandoah National Park for some native Brook Trout fishing with my two 3 wts.
