I haven't seen a fishing thread here in awhile so I figured I'd start one up.

Anyone here like to fish?

I fish mainly in Connecticut and up at my uncles cottage in Maine. Its relaxing

I was thinking about going fishing in Wilmington, NC. But I know nothing about fishing. I haven't gone fishing in probably ten years, and when I did I went with people that knew what they were doing. If I had the first clue on what to do here, I'd probably pick up fishing.

I enjoy fishing but I don't have a clue about what I'm doing really. I don't often have much time for it either, but when I do I love doing it.

Fishing is such an ungodly boring hobby, but it's a pretty satisfying one if you have a good day. Just wish you could skip the 4 hours of failure and enjoy the 10 minutes of success before wrapping the day up Laughing

When I go fishing, fish usually love it. They know all they gotta do is take the bait right off the hook and then go on about their day and I won't notice a thing.

I fish quite often here in Wisconsin, getting excited for ice fishing. Had some really good luck this past year catching some great sized bass and northern. I switched to almost exclusively fake baits and it's made a world of difference in size and quality of fish. I used to use nothing but leeches, worms and crab tails (for perch in Michigan) but have switched to using Senko plastic worms with offset shank hooks for the most part. It is probably the biggest improvement I have ever made while fishing.

I personally love to fly-fish. Been fishing for king salmon in Alaska, Atlantic salmon in Russia, bonefish in the Bahamas. Have got another Alaska trip planned this summer with my Dad. Can't wait. It takes some patience to learn how to cast, assemble gear and find the fish. But having a great fight and landing a big one is very rewarding.

You spend a couple hours relaxing out in nature. Doesn't sound boring to me.

I fished when I was younger (always catch and release). I no longer feel like yanking fish out of the water by their lip, but there were a lot of fun things about it, that I try to get through photography these days.

Love Fishing. I would love to have a fishing pond when I retire.

Started out with bluegill and bass. Caught a few carps. Now I catch the small fish to go after the big ones, mostly flathead catfish. Ugly, amazing beasts.

Haven't been fishing in years but used to fish the CA delta quite a lot for striped bass and sturgeon, and in the fall salmon.

Thats an odd law. Wonder why they dont like them there. Most places stock pike in michigan.

Have the privilege of living on the lake and I LOVE fishing.

Walleye, northern, bass, crappies, bullheads and even Muskie right off my dock. Love it man.

Bullheads are crazy size up here. Will upload pic later.
