The Fishing Thread

Searched around & only found the video fishing & BassMasters threads, i know their are plenty of outdoorsman here, so i figured it'd be cool to draw upon the Planets vast experience in all things fishing.

I only use spincast reels & fish mostly large/smallmouth bass & cats. My choice of reels is quite the source of derision from many people i know 'duffer gear', but i haul in my share of 6 pound bass & 10-20 pound cats on that gear no problem. With a little know-how you can use just about any technique you want to on 'duffer gear'.

Berkley Powerbaits are a big part of my trick bag, the difference between those & regular stuff is night & day. My best action last summer came on Mister Twister scented white curly tail grubs, on one day fishing from shore to a bridge pier, i caught smallies, bigmouths, perch & even 1 carp believe it or not... great day. But my bread & butter is a texas rigged Berkley worm, it'll wiggle through any kind of cover without getting hung up.

With cats i strictly bottom fish, no bobber & bait is just as basic... but its always in 2's to give'em a real treat... a shrimp/with a nightcrawler, liver/chunk of cheese etc. Cats are mostly for night sport to me, time to kick back a lil...

So thats me style, how do the rest of you guys get your fish on? What do you fish for, what do you use? IIRC Missouri's trout season just kicked off, anyone getting anything?

I have but it’s been about as long as the last time I tied a fly.
I've never done any jigs...I've done some large bead heads, which are sort of like a jig. Does that count?

I dont tie my own jigs now, but the cost is starting to get up there for hair jigs and they could probably be tied alot cheaper buying bulk heads at a place like rogers and tying them myself. I may go that route eventually.

Were you tying marabou feathers to a hook?
Close enough to a jig for me.
In fact I used to make headless jigs, marabou feathers on a #12 or 14 hook, in black and yellow for my dad. He would work them with a short flick of the end of his fly rod and taking up a handful of slack. That gave off the appearance of an escaping minnow and he could pull fish from all sorts of cover with them.

The biggest issue has been time...too much work, not enough play, and when I've done much fishing the past 2 years, it has been putting pieces of worms on a princess snoopy rod and taking sunfish off of tiny hooks.
I struggle with rivers, working with currents etc... usually end up just casting near the bank.

Great choices for go-to lures.

Heh, what i wouldnt give to have mine that age again... i'd always set'em up with something similar, but they'd both see me actively casting & decide 'hey! this bobber stuffs a drag!', so of course i'd always set them up & then spend the day pulling hooks out of bushes & trees ahaha. Wouldnt trade those days for anything.

Jigs=

I do an epoxy head fly called a jiggy for white bass. It's pretty much a jig.

I think a lot of people make this mistake.
If you’re fishing in the current you’re pretty much wasting time. The fish aren’t out in the current unless they’re moving somewhere else. Otherwise they’re in the slow spots where they don’t have to fight the current.
Look for creek mouth that feeds the river, eddies around bends, if there’s a log jam fish on the down stream side of that, anywhere that the water is swirling or moving slow. That’s where the fish will be stacked up when the river is up and rolling.

No problem, glad to help.
Besides I’d like to see a lot more people get involved in river fishing. We’re gradually losing access to what were once public water ways and the only thing that will stop the complete shut down of all access is enthusiast voicing their opinions.

i always fish below the 'v' in swift moving waters. Light sinker and worm, just let it work its way down.
