Do you like bass fishing?

Recommended Posts

If so you should be fishing Swan Lake with me! I caught three of these Friday morning, shot the Boomtown match Saturday, then caught two about an hour ago. And Labor Day Monday is still ahead!

Good looking fish!

Not near enough to give it a try but it looks like you’re good enough for the both of us. (I am not much of a fisherman any more, but love the time spent along the bank). Let us know how things work out Monday.

I'd rather trout fish.

I’ve never been trout fishing, but I’m sure it’s fun. My dad loves it, travels to Colorado  and Wyoming to do it. Swan Lake is less than 200 yards from my house. Lots of bass, crappie, bream, and catfish, no trout.

Back in my other life, my father in law and I did lots of bass fishing with plastic worms. Haven't done that in a long time. :(

I used to love bass fishing when I was a kid and especially when I lived in North Carolina from 2005-2010. I had a Tracker bass boat with a 135 HP 2-stroke outboard engine. Lake Norman was my Mecca. I was a catch and release kind of guy. When it came to panfish though, a mess of those are the best eatin’ in the world. ;)

 

When I moved back to California near Sacramento I found there were no lakes that allowed 2-stroke engines and I hate boat fishing on a river. Done it many times, do not like it.

So, for 3 years my bass boat sat idle. 

 

Then I went salmon and steelhead fishing in Oregon. Salmon fishing was interesting because I love, love, love me some salmon. Steelhead, though, that was absolutely awesome. Makes bass look like messily little dinky fish when you hook a big steelhead. The world comes alive! Fantastic experience!

 

I moved to Oregon. Found the same thing regarding lakes. 2-strokes weren’t allowed in many lakes and river fishing in a fiberglass boat was not a good idea.

I donated my bass boat to Wounded Warrior Homes. They got $7500 for I at auction, minus $260 for the towing and auction fees. Good deal!

 

I have since given up fishing for reasons I won’t bore you with here. I may take it up again someday. It’s a wonderful hobby and sport.

I should have a pic of my youngest son and I shrugging our shoulders, empty handed.

 

Morning fishing came up with nothing.

I used to beat the water to death in TX, MS, and GA fishing for bass and then one day it just wasn't fun anymore.  Now Crappie fishing, that gets my blood up!!!!

One time many years ago in early fall I decided to cook up the dish I caught through the summer.  I ate one, the kids split the other one.
