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?

Motorcycle Drag Racing buddy went crappie fishing at Parsons Lake Tuesday and came back with a bunch of nice slabs. Everyone of them filled with eggs too.
I’m going to get some fishing in somewhere this weekend, damnit.

Also, does anyone fly tie? I have tied about 10 times more flies than I can ever use. I live in Texas, so I get over to New Mexico to fly fish mabye 1 or 2 times a year.
I live on a Lake in Northeast Iowa. Fly fishing is the only kind of fishing I do, be it for Trout, Bass, Crappie, and my favorite Carp...Iowa's Bone Fish.
I have found Fly Fishing for Bass to be very productive. Last Year was the year of the Frog, and this was a go to fly for some very nice Bass.


I usually tie all my flies, but sometimes the spun deer hair ones I will purchase.
For Trout I use a St. Croix Legend 8ft 3wt.
Bass I will use a 9ft 7wt
And Carp I usually use my 9ft 5wt.

We had a somewhat decent weekend. The cold front screwed things up a bit, but I managed to catch 12 nice rainbow. All of them in the Niangua, not in the park.

Nice haul for late winter fishing Bill.

I've been itching to fish lately myself, cant wait til it warms up a bit more & the spawn starts. Caught my biggest ones of last year in the early spring, once they bed down they'll attack a matchbox car if you put it in front of'em.
