Love to fish ! I mostly fish for largemouth bass but like to fish for Muskies as well though not as often. I fish catch and release for the most part and I live in the land of 10,000 lakes so there are no shortage of places to fish  :tu:

Here is the biggest musky I've caught from a few years ago.

Just shy of 48 inches

That's a heck of a big fish!

I have never pulled anything that large in before.  I think my record is less than half that.

Seems like a lot of Red in those fins! I'd love to fish up north for a few months.

Is the whole "80 hours per musky" thing true?

I did a bit of fishing Saturday when we were camping with some mates. Caught a couple of salmon and a couple of mullet, the weather wasn't the best though, 38 degrees Celsius with strong hot winds and the surf was getting way too rough for us.

No, not really, it really depends on the lake and time of year.

Me and my bro went for a fish off our local jetty yesterday. We caught a few flat head and a bunch of decent size herring. :D It's funny because there was a couple of groups of others fishing longer than us and they caught nothing. Sucks to be them. :facepalm:

Caught this guy last week but after I removed the hook he bailed.

Managed to hold onto him long enough for the kid to get a pic tonight.

4lbs 4oz.

Typical Florida Strain Largemouth (black) bass. Taken out of a golf course lake with absolutely no vegitation or food supply.

That bass should easily weigh 8 if it had food. I fit my open skeletool completely in its mouth to get the hook.

You guy's grow them a bit bigger down there, that would be considered a pretty impressive Largemouth up north.

Yeah we grow a different "strain" down here

Our bass don't really shut down for winter. So their metabolism stays high and they eat year round which produces some massive fish. They may not live as long but they do get much larger.

Even bigger than bass in florida is bass in California.

There is a multimillion dollar industry based on taking Florida Strain Bass out of florida and stocking them in Southern California.

Not only does southern California practically have the same habitat but they have year round trout for The bass to eat.

I can EASILY say that I believe the next world record will be taken out of southern California.

This bass is names "Dottie" (for the black dot below her gill plates)

She was caught and on the cover of bassmaster magazine multiple times. And was a florida strain bass in southern California.

In this picture she was 26 pounds. a new world record. But she was snagged in the face with a jig when the angler set the hook he thought she had eaten his jig.

She is now dead. she was found floating the next year. Just natural age.



Not THAT is a bass^^^

Yep Canoe with a trolling motor is how I roll, I've got a bad shoulder so paddling is out for me. Even that Muskie was caught out of my buddies Grumman Sports Canoe, but with outriggers for stability.

Here's a pic of one
