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?

Donger, if it is a catch and release lake, there is NO WAY they are wanting you to use powerbait. Fish will swallow that and trout are fairly wimpy and will die. By artificial lures and flies, it usually means flies and then any other lure that isn't soft rubber or synthetic "dough" baits. Try casting a spoon called a little cleo. Blue and silver is a never miss color. Cast it out, reel it in. Very simple.

How do you fish with this stuff? Line and bobber?
If it is catch and release, do NOT use powerbait. The fish will swallow it quickly and you'll just end up gut hooking them.

No bobber, the powerbait floats. Size 10 baitholder hook, then 8-12 inches up put some split shot (weight).

I don't see any updates from R8ers. He must be having as much luck fishing as the Raiders are having with free agency.

You might try a bubble float as well, so you can actually fish with flies:

tooge is right about fish mortality with powerbait (and with live bait as well). It's strange that they allow worms and powerbait on their catch and release lake... but if they allow it... just know that you're going to kill some fish.

I think I've confused you.

These are the rules for the catch and take lake: "Dry flies, lures, worms, power bait, fish eggs are to be used ONLY. No live
minnows or fish are to be used as bait."

And the catch and release lake: "Artificial fly and lure ONLY"

From what I know (admittedly not much, because I only fly fish for trout), different states define "artificial lure" in different ways. Not sure whether Powerbait would be allowable or not.

Yeah, I suppose that I'll have to ask when I go and pay for my badge.

Is fishing for trout easier/better in a boat than on-shore? They allow canoes and "belly boats" (which is apparently like a inner tube with a large condom attached to it), but no motors of any kind.

Put your oil futures yacht you bought with dirty money out there. Don't they know who you are?

It allows you access to more water, which is certainly an advantage. There's nothing more frustrating than seeing the fish all rising and taking just out of reach of your cast. I also think it's more fun, personally. But some people like to sit on the bank in a lawn chair and drink beer.

Power Bait is always considered with bait.

In general, referring to trout at least, when they say flies or lures only they mean flies or hard bodied lures only (NO soft plastics).

It can be easier...you can get to spots you can't reach without the boat and you can cast and retrieve at angles that put you in the best situation with any cover or currents. However, there is the risk of you falling in, and if you are bumbling idiot in a steel jonboat you'll spook the fish.
