The great fishing thread
« on: April 02, 2014, 09:52:14 PM »
As far I have noticed, there seems to be no dedicated fishing thread, so I thought I might start one. ( if there is one that I have missed, feel free to ignore this thread. ( preferably not like the ignore thread :) )
Please feel free to post your fishing stories and pics here.

I'll start:

I went on my first fishing trip of 2014 today.  Im fortunate enough to live about 1km from a trout river, and the trout season started yesterday, so I desided to try my luck. I caught no fish, but got plenty of fresh air and a nice dose of peace and quiet  :)

YESSSS! Might have just made my new favorite thread. The river is too swollen right now to even bother trying, but hopefully very soon I can add to this.

There is this one from long ago, but a new one wouldn't hurt. The last post was in 2009. I did a lot of fishing last year, but I have a lot going on in the next month or so, so sadly I won't be doing much if any fishing. I will follow your thread closely though. I might try and get out this weekend though. Weather permitting.

Dug up some photos from last year.

Here is a Bass just big enough to be legal. It was tasty filleted and deep fried.  :drool:








Not mine, but my fishing buddy was checking his bait and this tiny bass was on his hook. We laughed all day about that one.  :D Love this picture.








Forgot my pole holder so this is how we do it around here.









Have to throw in a few SAK pictures.

Nice pics!
I mainly use spinners or float with worm/ fly.

I have no idea what kind of trout that lives in my river. I guess some kind of river trout. I tried checking online, but that only made me more confused, as the experts dont seem to agree about how to classify the subspieces and genetic deviants... :think:

Oh choice I presumed there'd be a few anglers on here.

My dad has a pretty much brand new boat and I'm always taking off with :P

My 10lb snapper.


My first kingfish caught on ultra light gear.


A couple of trevally. The big one was caught by my girlfriend. It was the first fish she caught on her new rod I bought her. It's over two feet long and my girlfriend.

Digging throug my dropbox I found a pic of a trout I catched in the mountains last summer. We stayed there for 2 days on our way to my family in the western part of Norway. I went fishing both evenings and came home with a trout like this one both times. Perfect for evening supper for me and the wife. :)

That's a lovely bit of scenery there. I love trout fishing. Haven't done it in years though.
One of my favourite memories as a kid is spending a weekend camping with a friend and we just caught trout constantly and cooked them over the fire. Yum.

Its probably a rainbow.

 if the native usa rainbows are as varied as our native Irish brown trout you will witness some beauties in your streams
Our trout go from dark black with few black spots to silver with many black and red spots

Im on vacation in the western part of Norway, and decided to try some fishing from the pier. Time well spent :)



And a Mora Classic is great for wacking fish in the head and gutting it, but it rusts like a Leatherman...

Very nice! I've been fishing all summer so far. This summer I'm obsessed with catching pike and trout. I've also been on a fly fishing spree.

Sounds like you have been doing a lot more fishing than me :tu:

Some fish I caught recently.
The Kahawai was smoked, the smaller Snappers went into a Ceviche and the larger Snapper onto the bbq.
Sadly no pics of the Eels, Stingrays or Trevally.

A few to begin with. Not a large one but the first one caught on my Stradic. Grouper. Cobia, also called ling. The fishing here for cobia consists of hundreds of every sized boat with towers, ladders, or any elevation. You sight fish for them cruising at about 10 knots.
