    and head to the lake I'm gone. I love sitting beside the lake enjoying the breeze and sounds. I like using my light action pole that I put braided line on. If I hook somethung small it feels big and if I hook something big my line can handle it too. When I was younger I went...

    I Love the Smell of Rubber Worms In the Morning

    My husband got me started fishing a few years back. I can't get enough. In fact I'm going in the morning. There's nothing like throwing in a line a million times and finally feeling that little tug. Set the hook, reel her in, and grin like you're trying to catch bugs in your...

    Alex And Me: The Bluegill Experience

    This Sunday, my son Alex and I went fishing. It was Alex's first time fishing, as he's only six. It was awesome! I never imagined seeing so much joy on a kid's face. We tried a spot at a small lake outlet from a creek a couple of miles from my house that I had always wanted...

    Fishing With Grandchildren

    The first time I took my grandchildren fishing, they were 5 and 8. We went to a pond where I knew we could at least catch some bluegills, mostly in the 3 to 5 inch range. (Quantity over quality.) We had a great time and caught, and released, a bunch of fish. On the way home I...

    Peaceful

    there is a certain peace that goes with fish jumping in the creek beds, its not about the big boats and showing off motors or the finest equipment, but just enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.

    It Is Amazingly Relaxing.....

    My Grandad Took Me Fishing

    My grandad bought me a green glass rod one day and took me with him. I so loved fishing! All the anticipation of seeing what you've caught and waiting for your catch. I liked the perch with their spikey backs, and the beautiful Mirror carp and Crucian carp. I remember being in...

    Yesterday was the best day that I have had in a long long long time. I have five children, so when we go fishing I usually spend the day rigging up the poles, bating the hooks, untangling nests, not to mention my eagle eyes looking and counting each child in fear that they may...

    What I Love About Fishing

    The first time I held a fishing pole in my hand probably was with my grandpa. My dad was a busy man and really didn't have the time to get out and go fishing with me. If it was baseball he would of been there. But this wasn't something he liked to do. So it was grandpa that...

    My favorite thing to fish. And one of my favorite things to shoot at! I could spend hours and hours by myself fishing. And nothing tastes better than catching, and cleaning and eating what you "worked" so hard on to catch.In fact, I am going fishing today.

    Absolutely like fishing.

    Love finding a small fishing hole, hooking up a worm, and casting my line. I prefer to use bobbers though. I don't really care if I catch a big fish or not either. It's just fun and relaxing. Except I'm terrified of fish. Haha. Don't ask.

    The underlying spirit of angling is

    that the skill of the angler is pitted against the instinct and strength of the fish and that the latter is entitled to an even chance for its life.

    Something We Do As A Family

    Waking up early, the sun just about to rise. Getting the kids together and going off to fish. There is just something so peaceful about it. It relaxes you as well as the thrill of not knowing what your gonna catch. The kids love it and so do I.

    If I've got to be somewhere, standing on the shore, doing some saltwater fishing, and getting a lungful of salt air makes me a happy camper. It's not to compare with being at sea, granted, however, I'll take being ashore over living on the boat any day of the week. This time...
