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?

The takes on this video are probably some of the most intense I've ever seen. The camera work to capture the fish as they pursue the fly is just ****ing awesome. I might just give my left nut for a day or two of fishing like this.

The Jack take and run at 3:24 on that video is just freaking sick.

As is the school of reds at 4:20 or so.

It’s been so warm and dry we really haven’t had a good pre-winter feed.

Friday night I got a few on San Juan Worm and Near Deere. Saturday day was slow, but I got 2 on zebra midges. Saturday evening a cahill hatch happened and they were taking white comparaduns until it got dark. Sunday was slow once again but I took a few on peach egg patterns.

I'm heading down to Norfork Tailwaters for a 4 day trip late next week. This is my favorite time of year to fly fish.

Caught a 2 pound smallie in a small creek not far from here that feeds off the illinois river, extremely rare to find them this far south.

Even have photo proof that i'll throw up soon.

Well casting seems intimidating. My experience with fly casting was in the movie A River Runs Through It. Casting is a life long art in that movie. I just want to learn how to cast correctly and I don't have anyone to teach me.

You don't need a river runs through it cast to catch fish. As long as you have the general idea, you will be fine. I can teach someone how to cast where they are catching fish in about 10 minutes. Do you have a rod and reel yet?

No. I have been looking at some cabelas stuff. Not too sure on what I should get. I was thinking a 9' rod. Probably 6 weight. I would wait until I get an employee pricing coupon in the mail so I could spend a bit more. I would rather spend the money now rather than later.

A 6 WT is the best all around weight in my experience. What is your budget for the rod and reel?
