I love to fish our rivers and the sea here.
I just wondered, you guys in the US and around the world must fish.
What do you go after?.
Have you been sucessful?.
What is the best "eating" fish where you come from?.
Also what is your best tackle?.
Go ahead, make everyone's day!.

Thanks for hittiing it off Mark!.
I think that the best part of the fishing is just sitting out on the water and the calm of the water.
That is of course, secondary to the play and the eating of the captured bootie.
Fish is the best when you catch it yourself and fillet it and then on to the BBQ it goes!.
BTW, Teach your kids to fish, or the art will die.
It's also the best thing you can teach your children, it's a bonding thing, any father will tell you that.
Oops sorry, I don't have children. [Linked Image]

I remember going with dad along the river one evening after he came home from work. He said it was OK for me to be noisy and to throw rocks; he was going to sit under a tree and take a nap. Dad had two bottles of beer, his line in the water, and sitting with his back against a tree. After a while, the beers were gone and dad was asleep.

When we got ready to leave, dad pulled his line out of the water and all he had on it was a sinker and a bobber . . . no hook. When I asked him about it, he said he didn't want the fish to disturb him. I still think he had the right idea for that day. [Linked Image]

Oddly enough Charlie, before the days of children being able to sue thier parents.
At 8 years old, I had a fishing rod, I was made.
I also shot hares and rabbits at the age of 16 with a .22 rifle, but fishing was my game.
We used to merrily go down to the local river and (shock, horror) catch our own fish.
This was done after school and I made a great number of friends doing this, guys and girls, that I still know today, very well.
We used to go home at just on dark and fillet the fish, and into the freezer they'd usually end up.
Simple times then, Eh!. [Linked Image]

mostly small mouth bass here. When I get the chance to go saltwater fishing, it is usually for flounder.

Trumpy, I have decided that you must be about the same age as me. I was born in 1942 and graduated from high school in 1960. Given your comments, I am betting you are within five years of me. [Linked Image]

Hmm, Charlie,
Can we stretch 5 years out to 30?.
I was born in '72.
We still had real rules here back in the 80's.
The 90's sent us down the track, I aren't kidding!.

WOW! Was I really off base, sorry. [Linked Image] There were some clues that led me to believe you were in the era of the '55 Chevy, Blackjack chewing gum, and Elvis. [Linked Image]
