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?

If you're talking about worms, Wal-Mart will have some, as well as most Casey's gas stations near lakes. As for minnows, the only place I can think of would be Longview/Jacomo/Blue Springs marinas. I don't know if that's too much of a travel for you.

I catfish on the Missouri about twice a week during the summer and nothing beats cut shad, or a live blue gill cut the tail off and let her fly

nice stringer of crappie from this weekend from smithville. Son and I had to do some major combat fishing to get to this cove, but it paid off.

Nice. I've been wanting to go do some crappie fishing, but haven't had time. We are, however, going to Port Aransas for some deep sea fishing this weekend while we still have the opportunity to do so. I'll add the pics when we get back.

Took out the new boat last evening for a little walleye fishing. We caught two nice 21" right away, then never had another bite. I say we, but sadly it was the wife that caught both of them.

I don't know if anyone can eat 42 pounds of catfish, but I would like to try

Out of a 40 lb flathead you're going to get, maybe, 10 lbs worth of fish meat. That's why it's just not worth it to me to keep one under 20 lbs.

There's nothing better than going fishing with little to no expectations and hitting the mother load. This weekend I had a trip to the inlaws for Mothers Day. I was pretty excited because my wife's uncle was going to take us out in his boat to fish Mark Twain Lake. Once I got there I was told the trip was canceled.

They have a pond behind their house that belongs to a neighbor. For the 12 years I've been going there I have always wondered if there were fish in it. I decided to find out. The pond is shallow and muddy and doesn't look like much on the eyeball test.

Here are the results I got on camera. My phone died on Sunday but I added another 4-5.lber that day.

Took my boys out to drown some worms over the weekend while visiting the mother-in-law. We caught a couple of bass and a few panfish.

We have been catching our limit in white bass for the last few weeks. Father in law gets to fish much more than I do but he has caught three 7lb hybrids and a 9lb. Walleye were biting great last week. Going to hit it on Wed this week.

Just got back from Port Aransas and caught about 12 vermillion snapper, a triggerfish, and a 17 lb. ling. It was my first time catching any of these fish.
