Fishing appears to be popular with this group
« on: July 26, 2014, 05:30:04 PM »
Made our second trip to the lake over the weekend.

My oldest caught her first fish ever -



I, on the other hand, caught me a nice new rod and reel -

Thanks

Forgot to mention that on our first trip to the lake, my youngest caught her first fish ever - with some help from mom.

I wish.

We are now after our nemesis - I had something big hit a good sized lure last Friday, and the wife had something big break her line on Sunday in the same area of the lake. Got a decent look at what broke my wife's line - saw about 18 inches of the back of what appears to be a muskie or pickerel.

Problem is, this is the first time I've fished in the SE USA (been here 2 years). I am use to fly fishing for trout, steelhead, or salmon. Haven't done any bass or pike fishing since I left Minnesota back in 2007.

So it's game on.

Went back to the lake to try and land the big one.



Too much wind knocking down by casts so I was ending up about 20 meters short of his domain. Managed to land a 8 inch perch and 8 inch crappie but tossed them back. Using a simple jig and single hook all day.

 I need a boat!

Fished San Clemente island for two days. Bite was slow but I ended up with a couple Yellowfin, two skipjack and two big bonita.

25lb yellowfin on a heavy bass rod..... just because I can  :D
