Title: Anybody Fish?
Post by: gmac on April 12, 2012, 12:55:33 AM
I fish...a lot.  It's practically a sickness to be honest.  In fact, if I won the lottery tomorrow I'd fish and brew, brew and fish.  That's about it.
So, if you fish, let see some fish pictures.
To show that they don't just have to be pictures of fish, here's a shot of the beautiful Bow River in Calgary Alberta from last summer.

Hitting the Detroit River Friday, the jig bite is hot!

Loopy - getting kids into it is the best.  I have 4 boys and they all love to fish.  Working on fly casting with my 12 year old (oldest).  I'd rather spend a day looking after the kids than fishing myself.

So no catch and release huh?
Nice fish Weaze.  You should come up to Canada.  I've got a couple good friends who guide for steelies on the great lakes tributaries.  And the beer...  Oh God, the beer...

Catch and release?! Yeah, I released it onto the smoker.  ;D

If i leave now, by the time I hook up the camper, i could be in Canada in four days I think.  Give or take four. See you shortly!

Fished all my life.  I love it.  Mostly I fish with my youngsters these days. 

I was going to make a joke about how you get the kids to stay on the hook but decided it's better to just agree with you. 

My kids love to drown bait.  We don't get enough days to go fishing anymore.

I was trying to find my fishing photos, but I'm coming up empty-handed.

Instead, I'll post a favorite one of my son, at about a year old...

Then you might recognize this fish.  I caught him on a saltwater rattletrap at Sebastian Inlet. 

That is my nephew Anthony on the right.

Is fishing illegal in IL? 

Seems you should be able to find a freshwater lake or pond or even a stream around you somewhere.  I bet if you gave me a zip code I could find water to drown a minnow within 20 minutes of your house.  I'll bet a beer on it.

We have a tackle store down by Bennett Spring in Missouri. We have a lot of customers from Illinois come here. There's a lot of good fishing in Missouri, depending on what you like to fish for. We do probably 99% of business with trout, but there is good bass and crappie fishing around too.

A photo of my son and me fishing on Lake Cherokee in Orlando the last day of 2002.  He was three.  We start young in my family.
Lake Cherokee was also the location of my first brewery, circa 1989.

mostly caught a lot of channel cat at the inlet, loved going in to the canals and taking some trout.

it is not that illinois is the problem, there are several ponds, the dupage river rolls near my house and bigger lakes not far.  it is just my life now just does not permit me the time to go.  i miss it, but i am also rebuilding my house, rebuilding my old jeep, brewing.... maybe i need a priority adjustmetn ::)

Don't forget catfish in Missouri.  The show River Monsters came to The Lake of the Ozarks.  Fried catfish with Tabasco, slaw, taters and a Boulevard Pilsner or smoked with a Boulevard Pale Ale...Mmmm.
