    Hahaha nice large mouth

    I hate fishing in the afternoons. Morning and evening are best, just like spring and fall are best.
    Now I love me some large mouth bass fishing!!!!

  2. Small mouth bass are a great catch too. I've probably caught more of them than I have large mouth.

    I found out that there's a chain of lakes connected by canals almost within walking distance of my house. The water must be pretty low b/c there was a lot of vegetation on the bottom. I went back by today and talked to some of the regulars. They confirmed that the water is low and the weeds are ruining what is usually pretty good fishing. I'll have to check back every now and then though since it's so close to home.

    Keep checkin on it. It would be a waste to let it go..

  4. I go fishing during the summer for rainbow trout because I live close to the mountains. A lot of them are not very big though!

    Especially considering that I drive about thirty minutes or so to get to most of my fishing holes. I really could walk to this one.

    Trout taste great though. Do you fly fish? I've never tried that, but have heard that it takes a lot of practice.

    What kind of trout do you have in your area? I grew up eating Rainbow Trout. I remember seeing Brown Trout, but it seemed like you could only catch them fly fishing.

  8. I went out to a private lake this morning and had to trek through 8' tall weeds and orange groves to get there. There were some monstrous bass out there. It was odd though. They would take the "shiners", but would throw them once I tried to set the hook or put any tension on the line. I'm not kidding, some of these bass were 10+ lbs

    The weather is cooling down and it's possible that's why they weren't striking aggressively. My buddy overslept. Hopefully we were just too late in the morning because I want to hit that spot up again!

    I'm in a slump, but hopefully I'll have some cool pix to post up soon...

  10. I had a grilled mullet poboy while I was in Pensacola, that was superb

  11. 10lbs bass sounds like real good fishin' to me

  12. I couldn't believe the size of the shiners we were using. Some were the size of small panfish...about the size of white perch, lol.

    That's the way you catch the BIG ones!!

  14. I've never caught anything over 8lbs+/-, but that was in Maryland. Striped Bass/Rockfish season was a really big deal for me growing up. We usually used eels for bait though.

    I was really hoping that others would have fish pictures to post up too...looks like I'll have to pick up the pace

    I have been way too busy to go fishing at all lately, but that will change in about a month. hopefully I'll catch something worth showing.

    I mostly grew up fishing ponds for bass and catfish 4lbs large mouth bass and 14.5 Catfish are my best, respectively.

  16. That's a pretty sweet catfish! I honestly think that the biggest Large Mouth I ever caught was before I even hit double digits in age. I have a picture of me lipping it and I'm wearing an ET shirt, lol!

    I've been pretty fortunate to have been able to try some of the things that I have. I've been on a charter boat and caught large Stripers, Sea Trout, and Spanish Mackerel (this one was DELICIOUS). I've fished rivers and streams and caught anything from Rainbow Trout, White and Yellow Perch, Small Mouth Bass, and all kinds of Catfish (Channel, Bullhead, Yellow, White, etc). I even went to Canada once and caught what was supposedly a Strawberry Bass. I think it was something else though, b/c I think it was too big to have been that.

  17. Wow, you sir are much more well versed in fishing than I. I'm quite jealous of all your experiences with fishing. I MUST go fishing on my off weeks coming up in November!

  18. Yeah, I've definitely been pretty fortunate in those regards.

    I go back to the first shift in about two weeks, so I'm not sure how much fishing I'll be doing then. I'll be able to spend more time in the gym though

  19. I couldn't see the picture when I took it out on the lake this morning. It didn't turn out as well I thought it did or I would have taken another. This bass was a little bigger than it looks in this picture

    Very nice. Large mouth bass now we are talking. Although I was impressed with the Superdrol catfish.

  21. I will admit that the catfish was a little bigger . This was just as fun to bring in though. It was the only hit all day too.
    RcB Since 09-06-2011 20:55 EST, Post 49

  22. looks like around 18 inches?

  23. Just about.
    He was a young one though, so he didn't have that signature fat belly on him. Probably not quite two lbs...yet...I threw him back for next year

  24. Nice one bro! Making me jealous, I need a REAL day off so I can go to the ponds!

    I catch something weird every now and then too. It seems like just about anything goes in Florida.

    I'm paying for it tonight. I caught that bass after getting off of work at 07:00. I'm dragging tonight.

    I have a funny picture to post once I get home tomorrow (it's funny to me). I still have shiners and minnows from Tuesday AM and I figured out a way to keep them aerated at work
