Anyone here like Bass fishing?

Recommended Posts

It's taken me a very long time to get myself in a position to own something like this. I picked this boat up last week so I can get back to what I loved doing as a kid and teenager. This boat was a little rough and I'll have to put about $3000 in it to bring it back to new. It's a 2005 Ranger 519 dvx with a 200 hp evinrude etec HO. I can't wait for the weather to warm up!

Those 200+ engines on those itty bitty bassboats always make me chuckle. We used to fish off of any old boat. :)

 

I haven't fished for years. Catching primarily bluegill when i live in Illinois soured me on the whole thing (and the concept of having to PAY once I hit 16).

 

I love to catch bass though. To me, they are one of the few fish worth catching in your neck of the woods. The salmon fishing here in the PacNW rocks...sorta. I hate having to throw perfectly good fish back just because the only ones that can legally catch them for other than two weeks a year are the tribes. The seasons for different types of salmon here are very tightly regulated. We have almost gone to war with Canadian fisherman because of it too. :)

 

Oh, red snapper can be fun too...that was my very first catch when i was a wee lad. In Puget Sound, of course.

Fishing sucks in Germany. Im not going to go into detail about hwo to get a lisence here, but saying that you need a seperate one for each River or Lake, and that each take 2 weeks to one month to get is enough.

I love fishing, just not for bass.

Not many up here for largemouth, but I know lakes for smallmouth where it's like... ahem...shooting fish in a barrel.

I prefer downrigging for salmon/lake trout/rainbow (Lake Huron/Georgian Bay/North Channel). This is my boat.

We also spend a lot of time fishing the hard water ;)

but nothing beats that first trip after ice out (late May at the earliest), for speckled trout (the feet are mine).
