Gone Fishin'

A group devoted to the Angler and the Angler at Heart. 

If the topic has anything to do with fishing, this is the place to post.  Tell us your fishing stories, talk about tackle old and new!  What you like and what you don’t like.  

Bought some new equipment and want to tell us about?  We want to hear about it. 

Thinking about buying a new pole and want to know it if it is worth the money?  Ask up!

Do you collect fishing tackle?  Show it off with pride!

 Any type of angler with any skill level is welcome!  

And as this is I Knife Collector, this is also a place to talk about the knives made, used and collected by anglers!   We especially want to see your fishing knives -- in the tackle box, on display, or in action!

Are the fish running where you are?

Hope to get out this week-end. We had one week-end this winter when the ice was thick enough to fish. Now the weather is warm enough and the ice is gone but I'm not skilled enough to cast from shore…Continue

Made it out to Round Lake near Dowagiac Michigan. While others in my party were using a variety of tackle I pretty much kept it simple.

I used  Zebco Dock Demon with a 30 in medium rod and spinner preoaded with 6lb mono.  My second rod was the Zebco 33 Micro Triggerpin Ultralight prespooled with 4lb cajun line. The rod is 5 ft. This was a birthday present from about a year and half ago.  A great little ultralight. this one goes for under $30

I targeted sunfish using nightcrawlers, I crappie rigged the  Dock Demon and bobber fished with the ultralight. I was averaging 40-50 sunfish a day. This is light years ahead my luck last year!

I also managed to haul several large mouth bass, crappie, and  perch, including the biggest perch for the three days I was there.  Others were targeting perch yet I was still catching more perch going after bluegill.  Fish are finicky like that. The bass were running from 9-13 inches.

The Dock Demon - not just for small kids Great for over the side of the boat or in tight spots.

Zebco 33 Micro Triggerspin Gold Ultralight. I really like this ultralight. Looks great and is very forgiving.

The first LMB I hauled in with thwe Ultralight. Just shy of 12 inches.

A good size Pumpkinseed caught on a crappie rig.  The second hook from the rig got stuck in my shoe when the fish started flopping around on the boat! If you can notice, the barb on the hook has been smashed down to allow easy removal and less damage to the fish. It also made it easier to take out of my canvas deck shoe!

Perch with the Ultralight.  Big enough to keep!

another day, Another Pumpkinseed. (up here, almost any sunfish of this variety is called a bluegill!)

One of the groups we love to support and help out is The Door in the Wall, Inc. Programs for people with a disability

I love the fact that they regularly take people that normally would not be able to go go fishing...fishing!

I wanted to share with you the May tournament for Anglers on Wheels

So if you are an EBay person, check out the knives and other otems that help support this group  http://stores.ebay.com/The-Door-In-The-Wall-Inc?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

Got this picture while at the Tar Heel knife show.

My youngest had bought her a fishing pole.

Trouble is, she misread the regs.  She didn't realize that "under 16" didn't include 16.

It's all good now.  She is officially licensed, and ready to go.

Grant me patience, it's been more than a few years since I've been fishing...
