Brown trout with flys. Old fashioned Crappie fishing with minnows and nite-crawlers.

Catfish on trot lines.Sometimes I will rod and reel for Cat's when the river first starts to go on the rise. I have a secret spot on the Kankakee river lol.When I rod & reel for cat, I like to use Catawba worms.

I like fishing for Tailor (blue fish) off the beaches, just stick the rods in the rod holders and sit back untill they bite while having a beer or two.

When i get my next boat i will be drifting for squid, as i love squid and theres no bones.:)

Any panfish, but especially Crappie, from the boat or through the ice. Minnow tipped jigs for these. Not really big on catfish like I used to be but shadguts work pretty dang good as well as rubber plug with trebel hook, dipped in Sonny's old fashioned sticky stink bait.

Walleye and Perch in the big lake...... smallmouth are fun in the spring and the steelies can keep you from getting cold in the winter in the streams with running water..... where you located OTD?

Any thing in the Salmonoid species. Rainbows, Brown, Redband, Brook, Coho, King, Pink, Silver, Steelhead and Lake Trout. Mostly Fly fish unless I have to brave the shoulder to shoulder when the salmon and steelhead are running good.

anything other than a largemouth or smallmouth bass is a trash fish.

both are taken with the "WEE R" series of baits made by REBEL.

Oh man ,take your biggest large mouth and put a hook through its lips and throw it into a blue fish frenzie . :laugh: Just the schoolies will whoop up on em.

I don't like to eat blue fish all that much unless its smoked, but dang can they put up a good fight. Get a three pounder on the line and you think you fighting a giant tuna.

Large or small mouth bass, spotted bass, stripe bass. When the shad a running at Pickwick Dam, go throw a saltwater plug from the bank and hang on. Those 7-8 lbs. stripes are so much fun. Only last 45 min. after daybreak but you are ready to go to the house anyway from fighting those fish. I am usually a soft-plastic guy but this time of year I mainly through a rattletrap when the bass are busting shad. I am also a director of a national tournament trail for bass fishing. If any of yall enjoy tournaments, check us out. www.fomntt.com

It is amazing what is considered game fish from east coast to west North to South. Trout in the north and bass in the south.

As a kid I fished all the time and am hell bent on continuing it more and more now.
Nothing I have enjoyed more than catching a small mouth bass on an ultralight rod....different part of the country.

Over 60 different kinds of fish in Alberta...maybe 20 of them classified as sport fish .... all kinds of trout Brown Trout,Rainbow Trout,Cutthroat Trout, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Bull Trout,Golden Trout,Mountain Whitefish, Lake Whitefish, Arctic Grayling
Then you have Walleye,Sauger,Yellow Perch,NorthernPike,Goldeye,Burbot,Lake Sturgeon.

There is something very cool about sharing a river with grizzlies that are after Salmon.

i like brook trout on a 3 weight flyrod, catfish on a brush hook or trot line, bream (sunfish) on an ultralight, and pretty much anything off shore. overall, i'd have to say marlin are my favorite. nothing like hearing a penn 80 wide scream as the fish runs!!

The kayak is my sons Pelican (sit on top). It's 9 feet and fits nicely ontop of my spray rig. The pic is a redfish I caught in Mosquito Lagoon overlooking where they launch the space shuttles.

Yes, it's a dolphin. Caught it on a charter out of New Smyrna.

I am in Central Florida, thirty miles west of Orlando. Basicly right in the middle of the state. Tomorrow we are going to the west coast to Homosassa to fish for trout. We are 1.5 hours to either coast.

The dolphins good eating ?

Erie, PA. Steelhead on a flyrod, there's nothing finer. Fresh chrome in from the lakes have so much power you hook up and hang on! I save up my vacation for the fall, then use it all up. I was out yesterday, landed 5 fish the biggest just over 10lbs. Not to brag, but I put in a lot of time and do better than most guys.

Nice Striper. Season is starting again now.

I fish tuna in the Hudson Canyon about 100 miles off NJ. We went out last saturday in 8-10ft seas and caught 32 65-90lb fish. Left 8am saturday and got back 10am sunday so it was quite a beating in the seas.

Leaving tomorrow morning and it should be another ass kicker at 5-8ft seas

noseha, we recently had a regional championship up there somewhere, I didn't go but saw pictures of some NICE smallies. They looked like big ol footballs. There is smallmouth down here but not like up there. Our staff take a trip to some lake in Minnesota (sorry if spld wrong) every summer. Always talk of catching 75-80 a day. Can't remember the name of the lake though.

Wife and I go for crappie, perch, bluegill and bass. Some of our best times have been spent on the water. She is quite the fisher-woman. Will keep changing bait/strategy until she gets something going, then all I have to do is ask what she's using.

I enjoy fishing for pretty much anything. Freshwater or saltwater. I usually go on 3 or 4 deep sea fishing trips a year. The picture on my myspace page is from a trip over this past memorial day. 2 striped bass. 1 of them took boat pool but I forget which 1.

I like to fish in the rivers for Salmon, Striper and Sturgeon when they are in season. Haven't had much opportunity over the last couple years.
Fishermen are odd fellows you know. When they're on the shore they are trying to cast as far from the shore as possible, when they get in a boat they try to cast as close to the shore as they can get. Sort that one out.LOL

Nothing better then sitting in a shack on 2' of ice in January, listening to the hockey game on the radio, drinking a cold brew, and jigging for walleye or crappie.

Yeah, can't wait. The pic with my truck and shack is on a huge lake north of us. I was out about 4 miles onto the lake that day and the ice was about 3.5feet thick. That dark line in the background...that's a line of fish houses out at about 5 miles. Most people would think that's the shoreline but the shoreline to that direction is probably 15 miles away or better. Probably 10,000 houses out on the lake during the winter, and about 20 to 30,000 people during the weekends, gets crazy. Best to stay away from the crowds if you want to catch fish...if you want to party...set up in the crowd.

So when you go fishing the most important thing is your chain saw or a big post hole driller??

Depends. If angling I bring the ice auger to drill holes, if spearing I bring the chainsaw so I can cut a 2 ft. by 3 ft. opening.

been out hittin a few rat reds and lots of trout. Mixed in with some sheep heads and black drums. Few specks but nothing huge yet.

http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=160040&page=2 here too is some off shore pics

Anything that fights is fair game to me. Just the sport and art of fishing is so addicting to me lol.

attached is a nice red snapper taken on a large chunk of runner or ballyhoo

Been a bit slow latley and a bit rough out so been staying inshore or near shore.
