    I like to be outdoors every day, and there’s something about fishing that grabs me. We vacation on the FL Gulf every winter to be able to walk outside without bundling up, and I walk the dog a few miles every day, check out the beach, talk to people...but I love to grab my gear and roam around, checking tides, wind, water til something looks right. Today it was a high tide for here, rain letting up, wading 1/4 mile thru seaweed wash to my favorite spot in these conditions: Stingray Cove. It’s been good, and the fish have been cooperative. Tight lines. IMG_7843.JPG IMG_7848.JPG IMG_7857.JPG IMG_7864.JPG IMG_1373.jpeg

    Hey it’s still fishing...

    We set them on the sea wall. We counted and weighed a thousand lbs. and a 900+ individuals There are a invasive species going crazy in a historic fish pond.

    Here in Oz 80%+ of us live on a coast. Fishing is a national obsession for both genders and all ages.

    Almost got the boat out to hit the Saginaw River before close. Water went down and they are getting Walleye.

    To paraphrase: "A bad day fishing is better than the best day at work". Glad you had a good time.

    Typical fish story - they get bigger each time you tell it!

    :) I don't have a lot of pictures, but I have good memories with my son (5) hiking a mile in the pitch black through the woods in November to a bass pond in the freezing cold at 5 am. I tell him "this is the last day we can do this", and in tears he asks why the vacation has to end? :) We caught a good size large mouth and pike that day.

    Going out with cub scouts and teaching him how to find the big fish - he pulls in a monster bass, while the other kids are catching pan fish :)

    I've always been a freshwater guy, growing up in the mountains. Saltwater can be more fun, but I'm not good at it.

    Doin' what you love to do! I'm getting there myself.

    For the pond fishermen among us, can someone please identify the catch? I like to know what I'm eating.

    I'm a diehard saltwater flyfisherman here on Cape Cod, but I also fly fish for freshwater trout as well. Here's a nice brown from last spring...

    I will be fishing that same water in a couple of weeks... wish me luck.

    This reminds me, I have to get my license. Trout season starts in about a month. Past few years, I've just been doing fly fishing. Nothing like getting out on the stream early in the day, all by my lonesome and spending a few hours being outsmarted by fish. Puts me in my zen zone.

    Thanks @Stubee, always enjoy your fishing threads and the pics that are shared.

    If the wind would die down I'd be on the water right now.

    Soon... gear is ready, batteries charged, feathercraft cleaned.

    Well I just slapped my forehead! I just figured out that when it warms up and I'm still taking Chemo, I can be miserable on the riverbank just as easy as I can be miserable sitting here fooling around with Yooze Guyze :)

    Come on SUNSHINE!:p

    It depends. For specks, reds, flounder I use just a jig with a paddle or twister tail, or a Gulp shrimp imitation. For pompano I dig sand fleas & use ‘em on a Nylure jig. For these puppies I catch fiddler crabs & dunk them around a jetty, but sheepshead are scarce this year. IMG_7840.JPG

    Mackerel will hit about anything, a blessing & a curse. They haven’t really come in yet.

    Most of my fishing is wading grass flats or around oyster bars, or casting near an island pass on the bay side. I use M spinning gear; a truly big fish presents a sometimes impossible challenge. I don’t surf fish much with live bait due to the ever ready catfish & stingrays.

    Wind has shifted to N and it’s cooling down. Flats will be unfishable, so I’ll mosey out to the jetty and may even try the surf for a bit.

    Man, that is a nice Brown. I used to night fish those in N MI, tied a #6 unweighted elk hair Muddler. Used a 6 WT. I loved fishing in the night. My fly fishing friend died about ten years ago so I kinda quit, but my deer hunting friend’s son just got into it last season so I’ll have a guy to go with again this summer.
