    Fishing For Minnows And Sword Tails

    Today we went to a stream and did a little fishing. We always just catch and release so, it doesn't really matter what we catch. We were catching some nice sized talapia, but that's not what got everyone's boat to float. It was the sword tails and minnows. We put bait on the...

    Catching Fish Is Just a Bonus.

    I've loved to fish since I was  a boy.  There's just something about finding a peaceful spot beside a lake or river, casting your line in, relaxing, and taking in the serenity.  I particulrly enjoy fishing high mountain streams fo trout. There's nothing...

    It Is Amazingly Relaxing.....

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Trout, Mostly

    I wish I had some fishing buddies. I have been trying to find some one to go with me. Preferably someone who knows more, so that I can learn more. No such luck. Not even someone to just sit and hang out while I fish.So sad about that.

    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.
