Let's see some fishing pics, fish, boats, gear, whatever.
here's a fish that my son caught this summer
and one my nephew caught.
My 10 pounder caught back in 1980 out of Lake Echo near Brownsboro, Tx. The next day, my dad catches a 12#, then tells me I've still got more to learn!
One of mine in my avatar. I've never thought to take a picture when I catch a big one, but the small ones I take pictures of...
Here's a couple of minners I've caught.
Here's some of my fishing poles, at least the ones that get used the most. I love to fish!!!!
Some of my tackle boxes and extra baits and line what isn't in my boat.
Striper that weighed in at 42lbs
How's the Berkley 100% Fluorocarbon Pro Grade? (I think that's what I see in there) I've tried Vanish, it's OK, but I hear the 100% is great. BTW, nice fish and gear Limb, fishing can get a little expensive eh?
Can I borrow a rod and reel?
38 the 100% is pretty good line. I use floro on some rod and reels. Mostly on jig, worm and spinnerbaits. Still like mono on crankbaits, and top waters. Use braid on flipping sticks. On spinning reels it's a toss up. I like the invisible characteristics of floro but man will it slinky up on ya. Vanish floro is better now than a few yrs ago but not as good as 100%. Cost is a factor as floro is more expensive. In dirty water mono works good for all applications if you can deal with the stretch factor and keep your hooks super sharp. And in answer to your question, yes fishing at least the way I fish gets expensive. So are guns, kids, grandkids, hunting, wives, and anything else I enjoy. LOLOL
The wife with a nice "Fat Albert" AKA False Albacore while flyfishing offshore last summer.
Not a bad retirement plan. I'd love one of these.
I have really huge hands...
Brook trout? :rofl2:
Yes, a baby Brookie.
Where did you catch that little bugger?
I haven't caught a Sunfish since I left NY.
That was in the middle fork of the Kentucky River, which is only a couple miles from my home here in SE KY.
There aren’t many isolated lakes in the lower 48 that you have to work your arce off to get into – but there’s a few here & there. Lots of hard to get at locations in Canada and I’m sure in Alaska as well.
A few family members and I try the Canadian waters once or more a year and we work a couple days for our Walleye’s, Northern’s and Muskie. Every now & then we’ll have a bad 10-days fishing, as sometimes the fish god’s just want to punish us for having such great times for several decades.
We always run with at least one 16’ boat, one 12 footer and sometimes a canoe as well. Portages will run from 25 yards to a half mile and the mosquitos, blackflies and no-seeums are always ringing the dinner bell upon our arrival.
We work real hard getting to and from our base camp but live in total comfort while there and only an unfortunate fatality could dampen our spirits, as Nature has kicked our butts a couple times but it wouldn’t be an adventure if everything went as planned.
We use to dream about items that could make life a tad easier in the bush and then came the water-proof tarps, light weight tents, propane, bushman repellant, thermacell, and a generator – life is so easy today and I’m grateful to the inventors who made it so.
