I love to do some fishing. I'm kinda new to this board, so I figured I'd start a thread about it. I live in Iowa, mostly do crappie, walleye, and Northern/Muskie fishing. I'm sure there's probably some folks on here that love themselves some fishin.

Dude knows more about fishing by far than anyone else on this board.
Well hopefully this thread will catch his eye.
Well I have a pond behind my house with some pretty good sized bass in it that I enjoy fishing in. During trout season I like to hit a few trout streams in North Ga.
I'll be damned, I didn't even know they had trout streams down there. We've got some up here in the NE part of the state. About 2 hours from me, beautiful country. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it up there this fall to do some trout fishing.
nice to see a fishing thread.
im downing an a.m. cup of coffee before i step out back and pull up a few 20" reds & specks.
Santa brought new underwater pier/deck lights for Christmas & the bait fish seem to love em'.

March- October we fish a lot out of the Panhandle of Florida. We don't do a lot of fishing inbetween those months. Right now we're waiting for the water to reach 68* degrees in March so the Cobia show up. After that, it gets better and better each month throughout the Summer.
We have plans right now for June to head to Desoto Canyon and the Petronas oil rig about 70 miles South by Southwest of PC. I haven't been to the Canyons since I was 18 and so I can't wait. Hopefully, we can grab a few tuna and maybe a marlin during the day and a swordfish at night. I have never caught nor been on the boat when a sword was caught and hope to change that this Summer.

the fish were running but the 20mph wind & 40ish degree temps drove me back in for a 2nd cup of coffee and an early breakfast.
Daybreak bite is best right now but the cold is brutal.
i agree March-Oct is the best but next fall you should slide this way & i'll introduce you to some off the hook (inshore) November fishing in the Delta.
side note: new u/w pier lights help make early A.M. a near "daybreak" bite & the slotted reds are on fire right now.
My back yard so yes I like to
Sounds good man. I actually have spent more than a few Winters on the water down there I just don't get the chance to every year. Fishing under the dock lights is one of my favorites. I caught my first Red ever doing that.
Tell y'all what. We have been wearing the slabs(crappie) out in ms. Fished Grenada lake last weekend using jigs and minnows. Lake Enid this weekend. Y'all come on down and we will have a few beers, talk football, and fill the cooler up.
So jealous! I gotta drive 30 minutes to ft morgan but I do the same and surf fish.
Nothin wrong with that. Caught the biggest one of my life this past spring. 16.5 inches.

That's a good fish. Fillets easy and fries like a charm.lol
Absolutely. We had a nice fish fry that night. We ended up bringing that one home, along with about 20 others that were all between 12-14 inches.
Fish all through out Cali and Baja Cali. My first love is stream fishing/hiking through out the Sierra Nevada's/Mammoth but I mostly stay in SoCal fishing the local spots that have to stock fish because we suck out here on the West coast. Cats, Bass, Bluegill in the summer and trout during the winter.
Take a few salty Baja trips every year from San Quintin, Bajia de Los Angeles, all the way south to Loreto.
Grenada has a lot of big fish. I've caught plenty over 19" This summer pullin crankbaits . But that's a good haul. Those 12 to 14 are the best eatn. I'd much rather have a cooler full of them. Where do you fish.
Well I live in East Central Iowa. There's a reservoir about 30 mins south of here that produces some very very nice crappies, that are really easy to pickup in the spring time. Also a pretty damn good walleye fishing lake too.
i've been fishing 40+ years...last 25 strictly fly fishing...mainly for trout.
we had some good threads earlier on tab...I live in bham so i try to fish north georgia/east tennessee once a month for trout.
We do an anual western trip once a year in the summer.
The key is to slowly build up really nice gear once you know you're committed to the hobby.
buy discontinued rods at 1/2 price from a local fly shop is another way to go.
I've always been interested in learning how to fly fish. I've heard it's a lot of fun, but that was from my grandpa's friends that do it. I don't have any buddies that I could go along with to learn how, so I've just stuck to regular ol fishing.
Just fished the Lower Owens last weekend. Really good conditions on the Lower O right now especially around 11am to around 2pm ish. Almost everything on nymphs since it seems like the fish are grouped up in deep. Got some good action on streamers in the afternoon using a fast sink leader.
I was actually planning on making it up to Hot Creek, but it started to dump on Saturday and they were requiring chains just 20 miles outside of Bishop.
My first love is actually casting jigs/lures for Calico, Yellowtail, Bonito, Spotties etc., but recently I have become a fly fishing addict.
Buy a cheapfly rod set at walmart or somewhere for about $25... watch a quick youtube tutorial, walk out into your yard and start practice casting. Tie a piece of yarn to the end of the line instead of using a fly/hook. I used braided line(spiderwire) instead of the tapered mono leaders so I wouldn't lose a ton of line. You'll snap off a ton of gear at first.
Its actually pretty fun and entertaining once you learn. I am still a spinner guy but love to break out the fly rod when I get a chance.
I can definitely talk some fishing. I like to think that I live right in the center of the best fishing in the world here in South La. My brother owns a charter fishing company so I would say he is more of a fisherman than me but I like to get out there and catch a limit or "2" ...
