Default Who's a Fisherman?

We all know we're all certified gun nuts...lol. I'm curious how many of us tend to sneak off to the local lake/stream/river to catch some fish when we are not at the range?

I am an avid fisherman. I like to spend my springtime and summertime on the rivers and lakes in Montana relaxing with family and taking in the scenery.

Maybe a thread can be started on basic fishing type stuff (fly fishing versus bait fishing, types of lures you have, etc....)

I drift fished the Madison two years ago with a guide. Wet fly with a trailer, Northern White fish and a couple of Rainbow. Great fun and something the entire family can become involved in without too much expense. Sorry to say, not much fishing to be had where I am .

I fish nearly every day, got a lake in the back yard. Usually catch bass and when I do the dog goes nuts. Release every one and quit for the day.

I have the ocean 11 miles East of me and the Everglades 2 miles West. The Keys are just over an hour South.

Yea, I fish some.

I was an avid hiker and offroader, I love outdoors, almost 2 years ago I had a terrible work accident, a quarry truck tire crush my pelvis and legs (just the tire... not the entire turck) since that I have to learn walk again, no more heavy loads on my back.... so... bye hike (I continue offroading), some friends start talking abut fishing... and here I am... learning to fish.... here in Venezuela, the trophy is the Peacok Bass, called Pavon... I still can't fish one but soon I will that's the fishing about... patience

Does having more fishing polls than guns and 4 tackle boxes packs full of stuff make me one? I don't fish as much as I would like. But I like to fish I like to watch the kids fish more than fish my self.

Default Ice Fishing

Ice fishing is my second passion. I just love those cold water gills. I was out yesterday and I'm having fresh gills tonight. Yum, Yum.

I mostly fish bass on Lake Shasta, but if I get the chance, I'll hit Sacramento or Trinity River when the salmon and steelhead are running.

3 or 4 times a year, I'll head over to the coast for some surf fishing.
