Official MMAForum Fishing Thread

I've been wanting to start this since reading the Meat is Immoral thread but had no fish to show off other than...


To go fishing we're going to need a boat. Seems like I posted this on here a couple years ago but it's finally done and been hitting it pretty heavy the last couple weeks and have some fish to show for it Paid $1,000 for this pile and have been working on it off and on when I could.



Slowly but surely it started to come around.










Got an additional very simple 5.5hp engine in case the 40hp shoots the craps and now I'm doing this

First trip out got a small channel on a spinner because their spawn is right around the corner I guess. Everybody is catching big catfish around here it seems.


Second time out last Sunday I only caught the one but had fun and starting to learn my way around the vessel. Never driven a boat before then lol.


Third time out was this evening and I'm starting to get the hang of it.




Edit: I mistakenly posted a pic of the same fish twice. This was the biggest one from Thursday.



The biggest one might have weighed three pounds. It was almost 17 inches. Lake limit is 21 and there are some big ones in here. Coworker caught a 7.5lb a couple weeks ago.

I don't expect a ton of traffic in here as the only other members I know that fish are Oldie and MC but if you got pics of your fishing exploits, post them in here. Would love to see them.

So that's how one gets lead poisoning from fish.

Ever think about deep sea fishing!

Great thread idea.

As for my boat, I don't have many pictures. It's an aluminum 14ft V-hull, works great for my fishing needs. I have taken a couple of pics of it over the last few years but I can only find one. Here's a pic of my boat and a pic of a nice bass I caught while on it.


I just recently purchased a sit on top 10ft ocean Kayak, I don't have any direct pictures of it (yet), but here are a few pics of me on it, plan to take more.



Random pics of fish I've caught (the only ones I could find quickly, I'll post more later).

Agreed, he did a great job on it. I've had this one for some years now, every time I think about upgrading it or putting money into it it pops into my head that there's nothing wrong with it, it works perfect for what I need it for. I save that money for pole/bait hoarding!

No fish were shot in the making of this thread and I'm about as far as you can get from the ocean here in Kansas Would love to go of course but don't see it happening soon.

Shittier shows have been made, I have no doubt lol.

@MC

My fishing buddy and I use a boat very similar to yours on the river. It's hard to lure fish from but is great for setting and checking lines with how stable it is. You can see it in the 3rd pic in my op.

Judging from the pic of your boat you use open face and bait casters. Why is that?

Edit: Forgot the most important part. Went out again tonight and didn't have a third of the bites from last night. We did catch three including a rare for this lake small mouth my buddy nabbed.




The boat was last tagged in 2005 before I got it and it shows. The steering cable I'd been neglecting to replace finally broke tonight on our way back to the dock. There was a super nice fella catfishing from it as we were pulling in that was asking if he should reel in his lines and I said not to worry about it, we'd go around. I then drove over both of them after the cable snapped. We weren't ten feet from the dock. He understood after I explained what happened but I still felt like an ass. If I'm not clogging up the boat ramp with my lack of trailer backing skills I'm ruining someone's fishing trip

Yeah, they are nice boats, easy to launch easy to control. I have been "on the hunt" for a new bass boat for a year or so, maybe a tidecraft or something like that. I just have a hard time justifying the purchase when what I have works well enough.

As for my reels, I use a bait caster when getting up close in the tulips/under the arching tree branches or anywhere that requires me to land at a specific point, it allows for better accuracy. I use the spinner when not having to worry about that, it tends to give me larger distances and it's a "no brain" reel, can cast it without thinking or having even the slightest chance at a nest. I take both out when I go so that I can switch up when I feel the need to.

Went out again today, went to Orick to do some trout/big mouth fishing and when I got there the whole lake was full of grass. I went all the way down the lake and every inch was covered... was very annoying, it's an hour long drive to get there. I haven't been there in a while and forgot that this time of year it is just full of grass. I had not brought proper bait to fish with water like that so I had to go back home.

I did pop over into the local lake for an hour or so though on the kayak, caught 2 decent bass, nothing special but better than nothing. I started using a new crawfish crank bait that I bought yesterday, I use crank bait fairly often when bass fishing as... well, it's like catnip for bass, but this is my first time using crawfish design. I caught both fish on it within an hour, so it did its job well enough for it being in the afternoon when the fish aren't biting too well there.
