Fishing Thread !!!
« on: August 26, 2009, 02:26:16 AM »
 I've been doing a lot of fishing this year ( thankfully ). Anyone else getting out there and wetting a line? I'm lucky in that I'm less than an hour from four or five nice lakes plus there is a ton of local streams and ponds that hold fish.

 I need to get my fly rod out more though. I just never seem to think about grabbing it as I'm heading out. ???

I love to go fishing. I have been fishing since I was 3 and I love every minute of it. We have a 22 ft Mako center console fishing boat that we go out on at least twice a week. The target fish is striped bass. I also go freshwater fishing a lot too. Hell, I caught a MONSTER largemouth today on surface plugs!

I fly fished for years, brown trout. Rivers mostly and I loved it. Since moving to Norfolk where there is no fly fishing worth talking about, I've done a fair bit of pike fishing. Hope to be doing some this winter. It's all about relaxing and getting away from the phone  :)

Fishing is a blast! Half of the city i live in is water, with most parts of the city being almost completely surrounded by lakes with plenty of common shore to fish from, so i get to go at a moments notice, even when my dad is using the boat for a tourney.  And then when winter comes and there is 2 to 4 feet of ice on the lake...there's not many things better than pulling slab sunnies and crappies and large Northerns up through a hole in the ice. Bow-fishing for huge Carp when its hot out, or casting huge foot-long cranks, bucktail spinners, and Zara Spooks for Muskies.  Or watching your topwater get completely dominated, knocked around and finally devoured.  Even the thrill of hooking a fish that feels like the biggest fish of the day, a monster, but then when you get it in it's just the 1st smallmouth of the day and isn't even over 3 pounds (they are truly mean!). Or just throwing leach on a slip bobber and catching a few keeper walleyes. Getting up at the crack of dawn and breaking the water which looks exactly like glass, or reeling in a catfish at midnight.  Carrying an 80 pound canoe, and a months worth of gear on your back for a mile or more (usually several separate times) on a trial no more than a foot wide, preceding to your spot only to see a moose, deer, bear, or some other sweet wildlife bathing with in a cast from you, or watching the sunset behind sky scrapers in a major metropolitan  area as you are just slaying the fish (or not slaying, cuz in the end it really doesn't matter... you where there, in-line and on time) Yep, anyway you slice it, fishing is great. (Yes i enjoy fishing)

Looks like a great fishing trip.  I love fishing but haven't gone much since we had kids.  They are now at an age where I think I will start again in spring.

I'm pathetic. I live in the Ozarks. A hunters and fishermans dream and I haven't hunted or fished in years. Unless you count beer hunting. But even then I've slowed down tremendously.

Chances to fish are few and far between these days. Being there is enough, don't really care if I catch!

I often tell friends and family that the woods are like my church, which always get's me odd looks ::). But it's where I go to recharge the batteries :)

And I bet that fishing spot has the same effect on you :)

 Nice pike Magic Bus :tu:

 I'm going on a 6 mile canoe trip with a buddy of mine tomorrow. Smallmouth fishing one of the local rivers. Should be fun. I'll try and remember to take the camera and snap a couple of pics.
