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?

I use these for attaching my leader to my line. They are cheap, super quick, don't affect casting, and they slide through the rod guides easily.

Just be glad that most leaders and lines now already have loops in them. Nail knots and perfection loops aren't much fun.

I used to use the loop to loop connections, but that was before I discovered those connectors I just posted. The connectors are sleeker and I feel like they don't hinge as much.

I like the Double Uni knot for tying leaders together.

True dat, you guys talking about knots and integrity etc. I have lost a few because my knot wasn't worth shit. It happens from time to time, fishing late etc. But I've probably lost more fish on snags and impatience


Also, when I go to a new area I shop for flies there. That way I don't have to research what the hell the fish in that area feed on. I enjoy talking with local fly fishermen too, so it's always a great experience shopping for flies. Also, there are some really great craftsmen in some areas that make incredible flies, sometimes I meet them in the shops by chance and it's great just listening to them talk about the materials they use to make their flies and all that kind of stuff.

I missed fly fishing this season, I like stream fishing in high country. I will get out there next spring.

You should start making your own flies. There's not much more satisfaction from fishing than catching fish on a fly you just tied a few minutes ago at streamside.

Awesome. I might be too impatient for that, but cool idea

Rapala knots would also fit into the not much fun category. Pain in the butt and probably more difficult than the perfection knot.

Pretty interesting how the Palomar knot works well with a lot of mono but is horrible for braided lines.

I was talking about all the contradicting information, more than the difficulty of said knot. It does look pretty easy.

I used to love fishing when I was younger, but lost track of it over the years. Trying to get back into it now, but I'm way behind the curve. Suggestions on how to get past the "beginner" stage? I know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to be successful on my own.

I'm contemplating a fishing kayak, though I haven't figured out how to haul it around yet - my bimmer coupe doesn't quite fit the bill, lol...
