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?

Nothing gets your blood flowing when you think you snagged a log, and its a big fat Pike that has not figured out he is had, when it does its an adventure every time.

Had a small pike just swallow my treble hook and I tried my best to keep it alive but it was a mess, threw it in the water I watched it float away. Out of nowhere a Bald Eagle started circling and swooped down and had its lunch on me, got a pic to prove it.

Another time im standing in the boat and I look up in the sky, a sea gull is making all kinds of noise, I shit you not that bird dived at me twice, it was freaky..
We moved on out of there feeding grounds I guess and it was not much long after that I threw my lure in the water, after my friend shut off the boat and was tying on a new rig, I gave my rod a couple radical jerks and that 20lb pike was laying just beneath where I casted.

I told my friend to start the boat and get me to deeper water, he's like what for?
I yelled "just get us out of this small cove" now!!!!

Sounds like a fish I'd love to catch but would let go unless in an emergency, because of the difficulty in eating... but if I had to, yeah, I could pick those steamed bones clean.
They are a load of fun to catch. They are usually quite a bit easier to catch than Musky, but you get that same type of fight if you hook a big one. You'd never be disappointed with a day fishing Pike, that's for sure. Most people throw them back because they count against the same limit as walleye, so they are in abundance.

These two tales give me wood, not only are they a beautiful fish but they fight like hell as well... its a damn shame they're pretty much nonexistent in my neck of the woods.

I did spend two vacation days two years ago at the only lake within decent driving distance that has them, Otter Lake in Palmyra Illinois... alas, no luck... but I did enjoy one fine meal of 5 very fat bluegill, so it wasn't all bad.

My first fish of the year was a BEAUT, less than 13 inches but this mfer was FAT and had to have been 5 pounds, huge swollen belly, surely a pregnant female.

Caught in a small lake where everyone catfishes, very little pressure on sportfish because the water is so muddy... it was a curly tail pumpkin grub with a top flashing spinner. contrary to popular lore you CAN catch big fish on smaller lures.

Like they always say, darker colors for dark waters... I had been skunked twice in a row before this, but that fat sucker more than made up for it. Didn't even think twice about eating it, she went back, just a nice fatty to get started was its own reward.

Warm winds are finally here for good, hallelujah.

I still have had no luck crappie fishing this year. The fish don't even seem to be in pre-spawn mode yet. Hopefully this weekend, after this current week of warm weather, will provide different results.

It was such a brutal winter, everything seems to be slow in getting moving this year.

The crappie are just starting to show up near the bank in the evening and early morning in and around the KC area. It'll be full bore spawn by this weekend, and that should last abuot three weeks. Time to get out there. I'm heading to Truman lake tonight to fish tonight and tomorrow

I hope so. I do not want to read the fishing report after it starts without me having been there for it. I love this time of year for crappie because once you find them you can have a blast catching them. And my Dad and I don't keep many, probably 10 max between us regardless of how good the fishing is, so we just go more for fun.

I have gotten skunked at Redmond as recently as 10 days ago, so I am hesitant to return so soon. I know they have a huge population though and I really don't want to miss the best action before a hundred people show up fishing for meat to last them all year.

Caught some decent size crappie this weekend and pretty good numbers overall. They were all males right on the bank hitting about a foot and a half deep. It was nice to finally catch some.

Not sure where you were fishing, but I ran down to Truman on Thursday and caught a limit by noon about 4 or 5 feet out from shore in rip rap. I was using a blue and white jig on a 1/16 oz chartreuse head that was about 18 inches under a bobber on a slow retrieve. It was a good mix of males and females. I probably caught 25 fish, and kept 15 that were all 11-12inch fish. It's just starting to heat up. This cold snap with **** it up most likely

I was on the river above Lake Perry. About 10-11 inches on the 8 keepers. A pretty large number under that which would have probably been an additional 15-20 fish. I hope this colder week doesn't ruin it too much though because I was hoping to go to two to three different places over a few days this weekend.

Been catching limits everyday on the dead water side below the dam. Someone has sat in my spot every day and caught at least one limit...
