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?

Itís SO much prettier country there, with MUCH better fishing opportunities everywhere... been through that state quite a bit, but reeeally noticed it yesterday and on the drive back today

Illinois is boring as **** by comparison
Yea, I'd have to agree with you. Years ago I left SWMO and went to work in Chicago. Never did find a decent place to fish up there. That's one of the reasons I moved back home.

Haven't been able to go at all this year and not sure when I will. Fishing partner has gone several times and every time I couldn't get away.

Most of Illinois is just a big, flat mudhole... there are a few nice areas from north to south, but not like MO

Who needs a partner, grab a couple rigs then get in the car and go!

I wish. Due to too many things beyond my control, I don't have time. It's been many years since I haven't had the time but I'll squeeze out a few days sometime this summer.

You're heading the wrong direction for good fishing my friend.

But yeah, Illinois is a shit hole of a state for fishing.

Leaving the shithole of Illinois for a week at Lake of the Ozarks near the route 5 bridge at Sunset beach area. Wanna try some crappie and bass fishing while there - I do not consider myself an angler by any means. However, I have read a few fishing reports and have obtained some appropriate jigs and lures that have been working. That being said, is spawning still active and are there areas to consider within reach of a rental fishing boat that would pay dividends? I know the home we are renting is known for spawning crappie, so the best fishing may be at dockside, but won't mind running around by boat to try our luck. I will appreciate opinions, but I realize that most of CP posters are assholes so will consider the source - much like a fart.

Is there anyone in the state of Illinois that actually enjoys living there?

Honestly, and especially if you're not a fisherman, I would see if there's a lake of the Ozarks bulletin board and see if they have a guide/charter section. Check some reviews of their services and give them a call. They'll put you on fish quickly (unless weather doesn't cooperate) and will usually give you some tips on what to fish and how to fish when you're solo.

I don't know what a charter/guide would cost in the LOOs area, but it's probably not that different from here, which means something around $250-350 for the day. Some may offer half-day charters, which would probably be about 60% of a full day.

In other words, pretty cheap insurance against getting skunked for the weekend.

So I asked around and this guy (Jack) was the unanimous choice:

Hope that helps.

I was at Current River last Monday and Tuesday. Monday was pretty "meh" in the fly-only area. I took 5 (one on a yellow squirminator, 4 on green mohair leech). Tuesday I hit up the blue ribbon stretch right outside of the park, where I caught about 30. The green mohair leech was working again, as was a cream mop fly and a sz 14 chamois worm. I didn't get into anything big...all of the fish were 12-14 inch rainbow stockers.

We stopped in Branson Wednesday night and Thursday, but Taneycomo was blown out as they had a LOT of water coming out of the dam. It was not fishable, so I'll just hit it next time.

Thanks to all for info'.

Did I mention Illinois sucks? Shot 2 armadillos last September for owner of rental home. They were so happy they took us across the lake to Larry's for dinner. Do that in Illinois and you're in prison.
