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="" />

Plastic worm cast right near the shoreline, and slowly crawled toward the boat. My son in law's catfish was also caught on a plastic worm. The three lures that work best on my pond are beetle-spins, plastic worms, and zara spook lures. My son really tears em' up with the zara spooks! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" />

okay. for bass i like my bright green mepps spinners and rapala husky jerks. i come from a family of fisherman and love the challenge of getting a big bass to bite on a fake lure.

I always liked Mepps spinners and "stick baits" when fishing up in Minnesota and Wisconsin, but they would get hung up too easily in my pond. I need another trip to the North Woods! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

yeah pond fishing in the summer requires lots of weedless set ups. my fav i you take a yum frog or similar and put one large weedless hook in. then you take a treble hook and cut off one barb and insert the shaft and eye of the trebble hook up the frogs bum and put the weedless hook through the eye of the treble and they are hooked together and the frog is really good for weeds and such.

My pond fishing partners have gone home. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> I have lily pads around the pond this year, and a frog would have been a good choice as has been proven in the past. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" /> Topwater action is great!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" />

ahhh... another morning of fishing!

or as I'm going to start calling it, "tossing every lure you own in the middle of the lake or up into a tree somewhere, or find random things you cant see under the water to snag you line on over and over and over again, or break another brand new rod and while your at it be sure to catch absolutely nothing while watching fish activity pretty everywhere that you aren't."

fish roll right up to the bank and hang out all day just to watch my fails like its that show wipe out. not even afraid of me cause they know I couldnt catch them if I was to dump the whole lake through a giant strainer.

so yup, another great day of all that... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/paperbag.gif" alt="" />

so thinking I'll be heading back first thing in the morning... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Alright, just a typical day of fishing then. Beware though, for one day you will catch a catfish, and you might get horned! Or you will go to grab that nice bass or crappie and get stuck with the dorsal fin. All fun and games called fishing.

When I was stationed in Idaho, I jumped in the snake river to recover a crappie that was as big as my hands put together. I be that sucker was 8 inches top to bottom, close to a foot long and thick bodied! Boy was he tasty!

decent sized bream and small mouth bass today... also hooked a tiny bream, a tiny catfish, and a tiny large mouth bass. missed more than a few cause I was wondering off but will head out again in the morning. going to try to keep hooks in the water at the two active most active spots and maybe try 2 hooks on one line.

always something going on around this tree. but if you look in the distance... yup, a boat would be sweet... all trees and turns swamp like in some parts back in there. will take pics next time...

wow! nice catch rugos!

I'm with skunk on this one... I'll toss back little guys and crazy big old guys so the genes survive. anything in between comes out the water and goes on the menu...

still learning this stuff but just read that buffalo is a carp. the one I've been seeing troll the bank every morning looks to be a bit smaller than yours rugos. my guess is well over 6 pounds and seeing yours makes me think he's in the 8-9 pound range maybe. yesterday I fished the lake behind where I normally fish and saw some nice ones is there. saw a couple that had looked well over 10 pounds come close to the surface. they seems to stay fairly active when nothing else stopped biting. it's pretty easy to locate them with the bubbles and mud swells the kick up. I think I'm going to set up a couple rigs and try for them in the next few times I go out.

what type of rig do you guys use for carp?

I am jealous. Being down this summer has only afforded me two trips to the water--both times off docks for catfish/bass/crappie/ and sand bass. Limited success both times.

When I was a kid we would sell carp and buffalo's to this old guy who would pressure cook the fish, meat fall off the bone and he would make carp balls, etc. I never got the nerve to try them.

I used to do a lot of bow fishing for carp and gar, especially when they were in the shallows for reproducing. Too many carp in a body of water is bad, but some is good for keeping vegetation down.

You guys are lucky to be fishing, enjoy it because if something happens and you can't get out and do it the memories will carry over!

think rugos forgot...

I saw some carp rigs online and though I was going to find the balls at BP. no luck... guess I will look for a recipe.

I wonder how they would feel about spear fishing out there. fish get so close to the bank early in the morning it would be pretty easy.

was joking a bit on the spear...

but here's a couple videos of how close they get to the bank.

video001

video002

think i stepped on something in the second video because normally they could care less about what i do.

Spear fishing, that is a new idea. Sorry Mr. Warden, the stick fell out of my hand!

about 30 minutes ago in the hole in the background. I'm not as close to the bank as it looks. trying to beat the rain... it's cloudy now but I still have a few more holes to hit.

Then up to Lake Winnipasake (sp?) in NH. Caught a biiig pickerel there but was too dark to bag a photo. Last day we caught this smallie and he was a lot of fun and fought well on our light gear- we landed him together and had a blast! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

looks like you guys have a good time out there RN...


I tried out a slip bobber and bobber stopper at the reservoir today. caught two catfish right at 6' deep. missed a lot more trying to fish two lines. was always the other one that went under while I nursed the other one.

catfish on the bottom is long as my size 13 boot...

may add some weight to this rig and try it out deeper..

Thanks for the comments guys. I was stoked with the big pickerel and nice smallie after getting skunked salt water fishing and dropping some nice trout...the pressure was on a bit because I wanted something a little more interesting for Alejandro. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" />

not lunch but they are definitely about to be dinner... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

I just looked out the window and it's looking a little overcast like this morning... can't help it... I'm heading back out to see if I can land a couple more to take over to my folks. if I take him a couple with some size I might can convince him to come with me. funny because most dads have a hard time getting sons to go fishing but I guess I have the opposite problem. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/doh.gif" alt="" />

Can't imagine what a HH would do to a kyak. Saw a pic of an aluminum boat once that supposedly had a HH hit it and it lives up to it's name.

I like this type of fishing but if I ever start seeing snakes I may have to think twice. this time it was just me and the raccoons.

[Linked Image from i774.photobucket.com]

meant to snap another pic when I got down in there. was a bit busy watching my back for gators and trying not to get stuck. got a little bass and a big ole alligator gar! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> man those things are ugly! got him to the bank and was glad my hook came out his mouth before i had to work up nerve to get around those teeth. think he must've been 6-7 pounds and was a fighter. don't know how they taste plus he was just plain ulgy so I nust nudged him back in to water. next time I may have take one home for dinner... so long as I don't have to look at his face while I eat <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" />...

Was raining pretty good this morning so we were the 1st to this town pond. I was hooking up on every cast for awhile. Thankfully, my boy finally got on board with catch and release! I didn't even want to keep the Rainbow, but he was hooked a bit ugly and Alejandro dropped him too...into the skillet with him!

A fun opening day! grin party up

nice fish! looks like your kids enjoy catching some good eats.

i like to use rooter tails when can but we always seem to have too much stuff in the water here. only a matter or time before you end up loosing it. and it's pretty much a guarantee something will snag it. i may end up trying some weedless hooks on them when it gets warmer.

right now i'm thinking jigging with a bobber is going to get me a lot better results than a tight line.

Caught about 25-30 catfish on Sunday evening in about 2 1/2 hours. Best evening I ever had for catfish. They were on the small side, but I brought home my limit of 6 decent sized ones.

Gonna go back Thursday evening and try them again.

Just to follow up, went back Thursday and my wife and I brought back 15 eating size cats, and probably threw back 30 more that were too small. Not a bad day at all.

You believe these little things hit big spinners?! My son cracked me up with these. He's been into state record and world record fish lately and says "Do you think this is a world record for a small bass?" lol! I said "certainly could be!"

This sunnie was funny too...his drag loosened up a ton and it took almost 2 minutes to see this thing...I was all "Must have a bass Alejandro, it's a fighter!" lmao!

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

He was into it though...woke up at 5 am all by himself so we could go. I dropped a nice bass at one point. Arrghhh!! Was a beauty of a day here after that tropical storm passed us.

had a really odd thing happen today. fished from about 12pm-7pm today. from about 12 to 5 the bites were painfully slow and i had one tiny little bluegill. changed everything about the setup during those 5 hours. hook, weights, swivels, and bobbers. I fished every depth from a foot to six feet and hooked the bait several different ways. the guy fishing to the right of me was consistently landing fish. think he got 25 for the day which isn't odd for him. I finally decided to switch rigs and on the first cast i got a bite but missed. i eventually landed a couple fish and continued to get bites from then on but didn't land anything else.

since i set up everything the same and got bites at the distance i was normally fishing I can only guess one thing. the big fish didn't like the line I was using. it was mr. crappie 8# camo line. never noticed any problems with this line anywhere else but these fish just seem to not bite on it for whatever reason. literally let a cricket float up to the bank and nothing touched it. as soon as i switched over to a reel with 6# hi-viz line i was telling a guy the fish don't like my crickets. right when I said that i got a bite.

live and learn... no more crickets on the camo line....

So how many knives does a knife nut need to go fishing?? Oh my!! Of course I am always knife heavy when fishing, but the new military and Blind Horse Knife came along for the ride so I could check them out...

Ah, so you've got the military AND paramilitary in camo. I always wanted one of the para's but to cheap to buy one. That is a nice color/look.

Yeah, he had a great time, liked that he caught so many and was a good sport with me "That bass counted Daddy, you almost had him." smile

I love the para 2 and am enjoying the military. The para is just edc perfection imho...

YUP, like Ishi said, you are teaching them more than you know. Respect for Nature and others as well. Plus you are teaching them to not be dependent on "The Man" for everything. Something that is fast becoming lost in our society.

Max lives! wink What up?!

Alejandro doesn't need a lot of outside encouragement thankfully, he loves nature and all kinds of wildlife. At summer camp one of the younger counselors was a hardcore fisherman and was impressed with all the boy knows.

We are off to NH in a few hours and hoping to hit the lake fishing hard! We aren't really set up for deeper water fishing, but hopefully we'll luck into some bigger trout/salmon, but I'm sure we'll hit the bass hard!

Got Back from NH and was a nice trip. I didn't do well fishing...lots of dropped fish and I didn't land a single bass! Arrgghh...did have a nice one on and almost got beaned in the head by the lure when it tossed it a few feet away from me- that was hilarious!

But with scenery like this...it's nice just being out...

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

Saw Loons a bunch- a very pretty bird with a cool call. We don't have them in CT ( I don't think) so they are a treat...

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

The kids enjoyed this of course! My little girl Ana caught her 1st fish...biggest perch I've seen. She was thrilled (the fish less so- gut hooked...fishing with kids!)

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

My Alejandro fished a ton. We had high hopes for something interesting like a larger trout or even salmon, but he had fun, got his first pickerel and tons of sunfish. He just loves being out and in nature.

Even my wife did a little fishing! This is my sister's dock...

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

This is about the biggest sunfish i"ve caught..sucker was a porker! Who is uglier- fish or me? Tough call...lol...

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

This was my most interesting catch- I didn't even know we had black crappie in New England. Interesting fish! Went after a large lure and the pic doesn't show how hefty it was...was a thick fish that was easily 2 lbs plus. Alejandro was stocked to use the net! Weiner Dog to help with size reference.

One week of vaca down..one to go! Will be less fishing this week, but hopefully we'll get out some more...

i decided i'm going after some big fish for the next month or so. so far I've hooked a couple but for some reason my line isn't holding up. don't know what size fish I had but yesterday i got the "zzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" i have been looking for. this fish covered a lot of ground in a short time. unfortunately my 30# braided line snapped right when I tightened up my drag and began to reel it in. almost like the fish had scrapper on him. i could stomped a hole in the ground I was so mad!

i dont know for sure but it actually might been an alligator. I'm stumped.. i just can see 30# braid giving up a fish that easy.

found 3 spots along the river to fish. this is where i will most likely find fish over 20lbs. i need to get my line rigging down and hopefully i will have some biguns in after a while.

Last time out for the season. Got skunked (no offense Randy wink ) but see his boots? Been trying to get him in boots for last 3 years and ....no, no no they aren't comfortable. As soon as he figured out he could go fishing with them it was all "daddy, I need boots." lol

Was cool out, but very pretty and I like that pic.

My little girl getting in on the action last week...at 3 catching a perch is big stuff... smile

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

We got this inflatable boat this week and had fun today. She took home this little black crappie. They have been dying to try one since we caught our first last year.

This was a new lake for us. Alejandro and I dropped the nicest bass we had ever hooked up with before. Bummer! They were crazy strong...after his tossed the hook he had to take a break for like 5-10 minutes he was so pooped! We were pumped up though and will hit that lake again. Next time with an anchor...rowing these two monkeys around for 2-3 hours has left me spent! sleep

Another beautiful day in CT and the kiddos are at it again. Ana was tearing up the sunfish and thrilled with them...

Alejo's turn for a Black Crappie and he was happy too.

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

This is a bass management lake and we had a bunch of good hits too. Even though Alejandro has caught some bass, he's never had one do the jumps bass do. He caught and dropped one today that put on an air show for him. Was a hoot! He played him well but lost him. That's fine...I cut down my treble hooks to one, so it's expected. Rowing them a round for three hours leaves me wasted though! I'm ready for bed already! sleep

Nice fish, when he is ready you should bring him up north here to catch a northern pike. Chain pickerel average 3lbs northerns average 6+ around here and I have seen 20+ pound fish and caught 15+ ones they fight great. Its one of my favorite fish to catch.

Hah! We have the fish grip because we started fishing a lake with pike and I haven't a clue as how to manage them! This slime rocket was toothy so I tried it out. A 15 lb pike must be a beast! Pic!

Got out for late season fishing and caught like 5-6 of these little fellas...

[Linked Image from i432.photobucket.com]

Went out b/c our DEP has been having a special release of big browns in the 15-20 pound range and thought I would give it a try. After no action for awhile, I switched to the smaller black spinner and got a hit right off. Since I had the browns on my mind, my heart got pounding for a second! lol! If it stays warm enough, I'll try again...

Been a terriblestart to fishing here, but finally did better today. Alejandro landed this guy and played him perfectly. My little girl had on back to back monsters we didn't land, but it was hilarious watching her and brother fight them. She kept saying "I'm on fire!" lol

They had a few others one too. Nice morning and good to have some action finally!

That explains it then. We have NO mortgage, NO vehicle payment, NO credit card payment... You get the Idea. Maybe that's why we don't have a pond. Then again it would be difficult to have a nice fishing size pond on a city lot that is 100x150 feet. smile
