  • OT Fishing

    A couple months back I asked who else was a farmer, so now lets hear some fish stories. In a few weeks I'm going to host some forum members on a offshore
    ​fishing trip. (Weather permitting) If the ocean does not cooperate we will go for Blue claw crabs in the bay. So what are you catchin' .

        I have done some Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River a few times, that was pretty exciting, but probably not the same as Tarpons or Marlins or Sailfish and the like! I actually enjoyed the salmon fishing first thing in the morning to catch the sturgeon bait more than the sturgeon fishing itself. I haven't gone fishing in a number of years now. I'd rather be in the garage with a router or table saw!

              You guys are dedicated indeed.

              I went fishing on Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay....once.

              Up at 5.00am, freezing, into a small boat, violently seasick, caught two toadfish (poisonous), cut up bait on the boat floor, sick again.

              The only plus was that this brought other fish to investigate the free feed, and I ended up catching two whiting and a flathead.

              Then violently seasick again....

              Since then my only fishing has been at trout farms.

              Good luck to all!

                Striped Bass off the Northern NJ surf as they make their run up North past NY in May / June. Very good eating and one keeper will feed a few.

                  I do a little crabbing for blue crabs in/near the mid Chesapeake bay every once and a while, mostly hand lining or a few traps.

                  Long ago as a kid we would use a trot line for them, or walk along the shore in the water grasses with a net looking for soft crabs, if we found any they would get put into a bushel basket that was in an inflated car innertube that was attached to us a by a rope.

                    I like fishing. I prefer it to hunting. I liked fishing back in the gravel pit with my dad and sister over the years. It was less than a mile from home, quiet, private since a neighbor owned it, and it was fun. Perch, Bluegill, Bass, Channel Catfish, and such. Just a peaceful respite away from the daily grind and noise. We had access until about 3 years ago.

                    Fast fwd to today...
                    The pit is being sold off, developed, and turned into a gated community- and I still live very close. It was good while it lasted...

                    I imagine my property value will go up as a result, which isn't always a bad thing.

                      John, that is a serious Brown Trout. I'm pictured with his brother from another mother. My thoughts on trout fishing expressed at link from 25 years ago.

                        Fishing is my main hobby. Up here in the NW corner of the country we have a lot of fishing options. My favorite targets are:
                        - Salmon
                        - Steelhead
                        - Albacore tuna
                        - Ling cod and seabass
                        - Sturgeon
                        - Crabbing for dungeness crabs
                        - Warm water species (walleye, bass, crappir, bluegills, etc)

                        There are enough fisheries to keep a fisherman busy year round. I'm pretty much gone fishing on the weekends from about April-November. November- April is time to catch up on house work and audio projects.

                          Roger tremendous color on that brown. That's the South Platte river in Colorado? I'll be in Estes Park/ RMNP in September going after the greenback and Colorado river cutthroat. My wife is fishing too, Tenkara style, so she's excited about the trip.

                            ​In South Jersey (51st state) we have a spring and fall run for striped bass, spring is mid March till early June then fall is mid Oct. till late Dec. Strippers are an awesome
                            ​gamefish that is very good eating. This time of year the ocean offers Fluke, Seabass, Tog, Weakfish, Bluefish, a little farther offshore Shark, Tuna,Marlin, Bonita

                              Salmon fishing here In the UK Is supposed to be the ultimate fresh water fishing but they are Incredibly hard to catch (I've been a few times but never caught one). Barbel are the next best thing but don't grow anywhere near as big.
                              I go carp fishing occasionally but although they are fairly easy to catch (depending on where you go) they don't usually put up much of a fight for their size :(
