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?

I fished it once. I didn't catch anything, but I buy bait from a guy over there who claims it's a decent crappie lake.

I might make it down there Sunday, but the windy forecast and the still relatively low water temperatures may keep me from going.

I usually launch out of Sterret Creek marina and work the Tebo arm.

Really? That's not too far from me.

If you ever have car issues at the lake hit me up.

Anybody here done much fly fishing using non fly fishing equipment, i.e., a spinning reel & rod ? It's well known that a lot of so called fly fishing is really done with nymphs and other lures to fish for trout sub-surface. As a matter of fact I understand in many areas most of the "fly fishing" is done sub surface ?

Our boat is stored near Bucksaw, so usually in that area if we are just down there for the day. If we're camping for the weekend we go to Long Shoal.

I've never done it, but I think this is what you're asking about...

Best $75 you ever spent, isnt it?

Even days that you dont catch anything are great... outdoors, getting some sun by or on the water, checking out the various wildlife, catchin a buzz. Fishing is never boring to me.

If tomorrow is as nice as today was here, think i'm gonna go spend $40-50 restocking the tackle box, get a license & get started.

Well worth it.

Looking through Bass Pro looking at lures. Ready to go again and as often as possible.

Only caught one bass in the 1 1/2 hours we were there but just chilling outside at the pond was well worth it.

Anybody have any favorite bass lures or websites I can buy lures at?

Bass Pro isn't that bad on prices. As I've said before, we only have a wal mart here.

You can never go wrong with a plastic worm, just throw it in & leave it alone for several minutes or slowly work in to you.

Swimbaits that replicate the swimming motion of a minnow are great too, same for diving rattler's. I really dont think there is a perfect lure, what works today may not work tomorrow & what the other guy tells you may not work for you. My old stepdad used to swear by spoons but i've hardly caught a damn thing on'em.

But if a had to choose, it'd be live bait, minnow, bluegill, whatever. Some dont think thats very sporting, but i dont care, i like to catch fish & nothing is better than the real thing.

I dont know about websites, but i'm sure your local wally-world has plenty of decent stuff that'll work.

Not really, one aisle mainly lures in the $5-6 range. It's kind of surprising, they use to carry a lot of lures. I haven't shopped for lures in 10 years though.

That is surprising, you'd think a small town wally-world would be well stocked.

I'd say go to the bass pro site & order atleast 1 of anything that looks cool... not very scientific, but it'll be exciting for you. Trying out new lures is cool, 'is this one the magic ticket?'.
