    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...

    I like trout fishing,

    it's peaceful and I love taking in God's creation while I'm relaxing. It doesn't matter if it's cold or raining or sunny. Love it!

    I'm about to buy a boat.

    I love Inshore/Bass fishing the most. I'd like to get a Ranger Intercoastal so I can do both. Bass, Snook and Red fishing is where it's at.

    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.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I love to fish this one way my dad showed me. I use a fly with a spinning rod instead of a fly rod. My problem is that my rigging keeps twisting up. I don't remember it ever doing this when my dad would do it for me. I use a clear bobber with a swivel, about 3 ft leader line...

    We are going through a drought.

    The water is too warm and cooking the fish right in the water they live in. I've never seen the rivers so low and the algae is growing everywhere. On the bright side when I was walking in the river the other day I saw some fish following me. They seem to like whatever my feet...

    Deep sea fishing is the BEST!

    Nothing better than being on the ocean with the wind in your hair and the salt on your lips. I have a trip coming up going down to Baja for a little fun weekend

    I just absolutely love sitting by the water,

    relaxing, while I fish. It is just such a great experience even if I don't catch anything. I actually prefer fishing alone but I have to say it was so much fun when the woman I loved joined me before she left me. All the women I dated she was the only one I loved bringing along...

    Something Fishy

    Fly fishing at the farm,

    I could spend hours and hours doing this, its so relaxing an quiet. Only two issues - its hard to drink a beer while casting, and I generally catch nothing (which isnt really a problem but it would be nice to have something to show for it)

    I go to nearby pond because it's close

    and regularity stocked with trout. You would think I would catch something but I don't. I see people all around me catch their limit and then go home. I catch weeds and a small blue gill or two. Yesterday though I caught a big brooder! It kind of makes up for all the days I didn...

    It Is Amazingly Relaxing.....

    The eastern sky starts to turn from hazy grey to orange as I gently drift across the glassy calm surface in my kayak. The freshly lightening sky shows scores of wading birds slowly probing the shoreline mud for their breakfast, as ripples and wakes from unseen fish glide silently...
