Fish

Since we really don’t have a dedicate fishing thread, I thought I’d create one for everyone to share thier catches.


So today, I spent a good part of my time fishing at an old spot I haven’t fished in over ten years, and let me tell ya, I gave my old ultra-lite rod a heck of a workout.

.
In five hours I probably hooked forty plus Bass using the same type of small jig that I used ten years ago. I ended up landing thirty of them and lost a few big ones here and there.

At least it’s good to know that the fish don’t get any smarter over time :laughing:

Anyhow, if you’re a fishermen and you’ve caught some fish lately, show them off with the rest of us right here on Full30.

Heck, I know I’d like to see your catches, and while you’re at it, tell us what you used and where you caught it.

No trade secrets here :smile:

Hopefully I’ll get to learn something new from some of you.

BTW, I’m going back to the same spot tomorrow :rofl:

See, that just the thing, it was just the wife & I tonight, but tomorrow, it’ll will be most of the in-laws.

They found out I went fishing thanks to the wife…

She sent them a pic text earlier of what we ate tonight and so they invited themselves over for a fish fry dinner.

They’re complete lushes over my cooked fish :laughing:

I didn’t hit my fishing hole yesterday, but I still managed to get out shortly after the heavy rain for a little bit at the cat lake and reel this big guy in.

However today, I did hit that one fishing hole for a couple of hours and caught twelve more out of there.

Fished Saturday night and caught two blue cats. One 13.8 & the other around 10#'s.


Forgot to get a pic of the first one…

This afternoon I decide to put my duck suit on a fished for a few hours. Caught 10 bass and two of them were over 12"s.

BTW, I did end up doing a fish fry for the in-laws last Saturday for dinner.


They ate every bit of it :laughing:

Dang @Wildlife . Save some fish for future generations.

OK, so this brings me to a question. If I were to buy some fishing gear for SHTF, didn’t want to buy every lure out there, what few items or lures would be a good choice to have, if I don’t know where I might be fishing? Most likely fresh water, some river or lake or pond, since I’m no where near the coast.
And what rod and reel would be a good choice? Keep in mind, I know absolutely nothing about fishing. I’m just wanting to increase my prepper items.
Any suggestions? I saw a green frog thing and something yellow. Is there a color I need to look for in lures? Or something shiny? Certain hooks i should get? I will buy a small tackle box and fill with what ever is needed. Also, what about fishing line? What kind/weight? And do people still use those red and white floaty balls?
