I had a nice weekend last week with my son and thought about a dedicated fishing thread before the Yard went kaput!

While not quite as impressive as Steelnut's threads <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> fishing fun comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Last week the boy discovered how to up his number of fish caught...

That means dad is taking off sunfish every two to three minutes...and he's happy with that. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

And being out always means a lot more...never saw a turtle laying eggs-

Went out to a nearby steam and found this. Got deer around every corner here in CT and never found an antler either!

With a fishing companion of mine- the Weiner Dog..one of my most loved knives.

Getting out is just great and giving my Alejandro new expereinces is even better!

Hows about adding your pics for the season all?

Great pics! Looks like you guys had a great time.
I went spearfishing last weekend, but caught ZERO <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
But I will get some next time!

Great pics RN, and your son should remember that for a LONG time! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

My son and son-in-law both will be up here next month with their kids, and we plan on fishing ourselves! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" />

Well congratulations on your family getting to visit Tom. Pond raised fish are pretty good. Patty and I need to hit up her brothers lake again one of these days when it isn't to hot.

Hey brother, IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!!!! Remember that you are living in the "good old days" while your kids are that size!!

And it doesn't matter how big the fish are. I will bait hooks and take those little sunfish off all day if the kids are having fun.

Good job dad!!!

Doc

Oh, and you know some people call those little guys "tinkle-on-ya's". If you hold them with your hand over the dorsal fin and squeeze, they make pretty interesting squirt guns!!

nice pics!

Been doing a lot of fishing this last few months. Pretty much just learning since I haven't fished since I was a kid and never did much back then. But man I got the bug pretty bad now. It's crazy how much you can enjoy something you completely suck at <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />. I'm usually a really patient person but man I can get amped up when I'm not catching anything, which is every day. But that's what keeps me learning and working on my process. I'm seeing some huge fish in my favorite spot but they are ignoring everything I throw at them. All I do is point and say "one day, one day...".

Its beautiful scenery and even though I may not catch anything I enjoy watching the gators try to creep up on frogs. Will try to get some pics the next time I go out....

Thanks guys...definite differences between fishing and catching, no?! ha haaa!

This was our last trip...friend said there are killer bass here, but all we pulled in after an almost hour hike were shiners...this is a pic after he kissed it. He was happy.

We had a long hike in and out and saw all kinds of wildlife which we both loved. Here's a poor picture of a Scarlet Tanager which are rare for CT. Very pretty bird!

Tom, I think you are cheating. I've seen that last picture a LONG time ago!

Go ahead and admit, he spanked you in the size contest. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

nice PK!

so far caught a around 3 pound bass and a small but tasty breakfast sized bream... everything else has been me practicing on how not to loose lures. i'm needing more practice...

mentioned this in another thread but i've lost so many lures the last few weeks i'm trying harder to keep a lure than to catch a fish. last trip out i snagged a lure and was so determined to get my lure that i broke my pole. despite the fact that i broke my pole my lure actually came loose in the end. now why i felt a bit victorious sacrificing a decent pole for a $1.00 fake minnow I will never know. it's the most expensive lure i have now though.

My son in law caught the big fish of the day today; an 8#9oz. catfish! We caught a lot of smaller bass and some bluegills, but Tim took the top honor today. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Sorry about the sideways pic, but we couldn't get it turned around. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
