Hot Fish ID
I’m figuring, and that’s when things start to go South, that’s a barracuda then next a very large largemouth, perhaps. Takes a strong girl to hoist that one!
Fee to Fish
I’ve never been to a place where you have to pay to fish but I recently discovered that there is a place about 50 miles from my house where you pay $15 to fish all day. The predominant fish seems to be catfish and the place attracts the typical catfish crowd.
What do you guys think of these places?
Can't beat the Ladders
If you can stand the sometimes paralyzing cold, a long list of regulations, and a 50% increase
in last year's already high fishing fees, Pyramid Lake is loaded with double-digit Cut-throat trout.
This 15-pounder fell for one of my home-made jigs while l was ladder fishing last week.
Someone was fishing for Moby Dick
Haven't been fishing for a while now due to Health issues. I finally with some new drugs have my piss and vinegar back, also have two new eyes. I can see now with good clarity at a distance, not so much up close.
So with my new piss and vinegar I decided go do some casting at bon Tempe reservoir. My lure went through some grass that felt like hits, no fight but I could feel heaviness on my line that felt like I had something on my line. What I had was some lost monofilament fishing line. I figured let's get it out of the lake and throw away so no one Else fouled there line in it. So as I was pulling it in all of a sudden I see what looks like a trout coming in with it. Okay I think since it is not fighting it was Dead. So I pick it up thinking I would toss it up the bank for the raccoons to have and evening meal. What I had actually was one of the biggest lures I have ever seen for fishing in A small reservoir like bon Tempe. The biggest fish in that reservoir would more than likely be a large mouth bass probably not more then five or six pounds.
Whoever was using it most of had a lot of expectation for Moby Dick or A Great White shark, here are some photos of it.
New Years first fish
Got in a couple hours of fishing today. Lake Granbury.
Took a look at this stream about 3 months ago but I didn't have a PA license at the time. Took a ride back today and gave it a try. The lower picture is the outflow from the reservoir then it runs out into Tulpehocken Creek. The upper shot is where the stream flows onto a special regs area that is pretty heavily stocked with trout. Only artificial lures are allowed. Didnt get any takers, trying with a texas rigged worm, rattle trap and a liive crayfish under a bobber to keep it off the rocks on the bottom. Target was walleye and smallmouth . After no action, switched to the fly rod in the lower section toward the spec reg area, since I saw a few dimples on the water. No luck there either, but I wasn't completely prepared to fish fly. Beautiful day to be on the water though.
This is a Coho (Silver) filet that I fixed for dinner.
Why do they ban wading shoes with felt soles
Some states ban felt soles wading shoes, anybody can help explain?
ABU Ambassadeur 5000
I have an ABU Ambassadeur 5000 that my dad bought in around 1955 or 1960. It is serial number 351913. This reel was only used a few times and inside is like new. The chrome finish has a little rust on it from sitting in my garage 700' from the ocean. I'm looking for a price. I looked on Ebay and they are all over the place. Any suggestions would be helpful.
