I fish cause I like it.

But go to canada yearly for Pike, Musky, Small Mouth, and walleye. But this past season I tried going for crappie and white bass. I missed the white bass run, but I had a blast catching some crappie from the shore. I hope you actually take the boat out this year for crappie 18'6" Triton.

haha well thats my expertise. My wife calls me the fish whisperer. hahaha Well if you want to learn, come up in the spring and i'll show you the ways. The best way to learn though and get good experience on the water is to join your local BASS club. You will learn alot from those guys and get to fish some tournaments.

I know how to fish, I mean I bass fished pretty seriously for a couple years there. Throwing Bass pro and Abu Garcia bait casters. With one Abu Garcia spinner for the super light stuff. I was just starting to be able to find the fish on the lake under different conditions, when I really got into hunting. Thats been like 2 or 3 years now?

But when we'd fish, I'd put us on the fish. My buddy would be catching the hell out of fish, from the back of the boat. And I could be fishing ahead of him with the same lure the same way and I wouldnt even get a hit..

hahha I have the opposite problem. My friends always get pizzed at me for catching all the fish up front. They say i never give them a chance to catch fish. My father says it everytime. I try to explain it to them that its more about presentation. They dont believe me so i started giving the front of the boat to them and from the back continued to out fish them like 5-1. It was a good lesson for them to learn though. Presentation of the bait and the right bait is key.

I tagged along on family fishing trips, but never acquired any mad skills. Somewhere packed away is a small rod and reel with 4 lb line. My favorite lure for lake fishing was a Rocky Jr.

Never heard of a rocky jr. What is that? 4lb line? My lightest line is my ultralight i use for crappie or occasional 1" grub as a search bait. All 9 of my baitcasters have 12+ up to 20#. My 3 spinning rods have 12lb XL.
