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?

We have them in the rivers here in Illinois, they used to show up on my families trot lines all the time, but they dont get nearly that big from what i've seen. Imagine you're lazing around in a river & one of these mistakes your milky white foot for a fish... one of those could easily drown a man IMO.

Those are alligator gar. Supposedly they donít move north of Oklahoma but Iíve seen them in Grand Lake, which is partially fed by the Neosho so I donít see how theyíre not in Kansas also.
Mostly we have short and long nose gar which donít get as big as the alligator gar but I have seen long nose gar up to 5í long so they can get pretty damn big themselves.

I may actually get a little fishing in this weekend.
Iím headed out to a friends land to help cut some trails and clear brush for a camping area on the back-side of his second pond. Which is also an excuse to break out the Corveep. Iím taking my son and dog so it should be entertaining at least.

when i was a kid i rode my bike down to the high water bridge just to pass the time. I seen a fish big as a man swim up stream and then disappear when it got to the deep channel. Ive never ever been spooked by anything in the water but that thing gave me abit of the heebeejeebeez.

No one really knows how big the fish in our waters get because weíre limited to what we can catch on rod and reel, no netting allowed.
Maybe if we could net up fish like they do on the Mekong river we might find a +600 lb monster lurking the deep.

Bull Shoals Lake

Has anyone ever fished the Bull Shoals Lake? It's located on the Southern MO and Northern AR border. Grandpa, dad, and brothers are doing a fishing get away there the third week of May. I've never been there.

I've been told that the water is very clear. Has anyone fished it or have any advice or hints?

I fish below Bull Shoals Dam in the tailwaters for trout pretty regularly. I don't know shit about the lake, other than it's huge.

Have you ever hooked into one of those giant brownies? Whenever I hear Arkansas and fishing, I think about giant White River brown trout.

My biggest was actually on the Little Read, and it was around 26". Not a giant by our standards, but still a very big fish.
