Welcome to TFF.
I am in the same situation, was out of fishing for an extended period of time, sold my boat etc.
Now I have dove deep into it, and I have to say the folks here at TFF are great. They are willing to share all kinds of info, help out the best they can.
This time around for me, I am looking at getting involved in more tournaments.
Have fished some local events, and joined the American Bass Anglers, so I can get out to other lakes.
Got my search light out for another boat, upgraded all my old gear and really looking forward
to having fun.
Again all those around here are super, feel free to ask them anything.
Well that is except for the coordinates of their favorite spots
