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?

Also, you can't just drive over to some creek, wade in, and start fishing like you can in freshwater. You often need a boat (and an expensive one at that) to access the fishing. If you're going offshore, then your fuel costs aren't going to be cheap either.

The recent saltwater kayak fishing craze is a result of that and is making saltwater more accessible to the "common" man, though. Anyway, I see your point on the size of the fish, but I'd probably take a 20 day crappie day to a 1 grouper day any day of the week. 20 crappie means there was a lot of action. 1 grouper means there was a lot of waiting.
So, not having fished the coasts, you can't just pull up to the shore with some line-bait-pole and have a day without huge expense?

I mean, you can't fish from the shore I'm guessing due to the waves/tide and whatnot in most places, but there are a $#it-ton of places in the NE area and FLA gulf side protected from a lot of that I'd think.

Well, you can fish from the shore, it's just not always productive. Jetties and boardwalks/piers can provide good "shore" fishing as well. Kayaks let you get out past the breakers and into more productive water without really having to go real far offshore.

If you do just a little research and ask around some about where to go, then it can definitely be productive to just go out with your bait and gear. Probably the most popular and productive way to fish for the average dude without a boat is to find a pier that has lights on at night and fish off the pier. It just doesn't really work for fly fishing, which is my preferred method of fishing. It can also be extremely boring if the timing is off (but I guess all fishing can be boring if you ain't catching).

Usually fish at Lake Olathe but it's a bit of a drive so tonight we'll probably fish at the local park which is about 5 acres.

Got to do some fishing while in FL. Didn't expect this kind of trip! Managed to get this 7-8' Dusky Shark to the surface before we cut the line. It's quite a rush reeling in something that big!

Caught some here in Bella Vista at Lake Brittany Last Sunday. Not a trout guy normally, but I caught fish in February. So that's a plus.
