I made it back on the water this week after successful knee surgery. My doctor suggested using the knee as much as the pain would allow. I thought I should do more to hasten healing, so I incorporated my own plan for “fish-ical” therapy. I can highly recommend my techniques for improving knee strength and movement which include: trolling while sitting down with the knee elevated. (I also iced the knee while the cold rain came down and soaked the ace bandage.)
Standing straight up and casting top water lures toward shore. This also works for spooning striper schools in deep water and bass on drop-offs near shore. I tried sitting down while bait fishing but I had to keep standing up to land the fish. I have to improve that technique and will report back next week.
