    Re: What's the biggest fight?

    This past June I was able to fish Lake Havasu in Arizona. It's home to the world record shellcracker, weighing in at almost 6 pounds. Using spinning gear on a day when the temps were in triple...

    I fished in Arizona a few weeks ago. Near the town of Marble Canyon there is a boat launch called Lee's Ferry. It's on the Colorado river. The Canyon is stunningly breathtaking. I caught trout in...

    Re: Fishing in Italy

    The few times I fished in Italy it was at pay lakes. Only ever fished for trout. Some places charge by the weight of the fish you catch. Plus you aren't allowed any catch & release. Others charge...

    Re: My trout of a life time

    Massive. What a spectacular fish. I would have been shaking for a week to land something that large.

    I remember walking up on a guy on a river in Alaska. He had caught a 28 inch rainbow. He...

    Re: Our trip trough the west

    I would love to catch a whitefish. I did manage to catch a few grayling in Yellowstone. I hiked back to 1 of the little pressured lakes. The only grayling I have caught in the lower 48.

    Re: Preparing for the Kenai

    If you are looking for graying, hike up to Grayling lake down by Seward. It's about a 1.5 mile hike on a good graded trail. I've caught them from the shore there before. Good luck.

    Every long journey begins with a single step. It seems like you have taken a few steps on your personal journey.

    Best of luck. I hope it's everything you hoped it could be.

    Re: What is a great fishing trip?????

    By nature, I'm a price sensitive guy. That attribute can be both a blessing & a curse.

    Re: The Struggles of a Kayak Fisherman

    I didn't like the hook set you get when using a float tube. I had to make sure my rod tip was as close to the water as possible.

    My kayak hurt by back after about 2 hours. I had a cockpit but I...

    I learned to fly fish on still water. NO current to deal with. My go to panfish fly is a Madam X. It sits just below the surface tension of the water. A slight tug separates the rubber legs. ...

    Where were you fishing? Did you get anything?

    Years ago I fished down at Fletcher's Boathouse. Great shad run in the spring down there.

    Re: Suffering from Trigger Finger.

    Doc gave me a little plastic sleeve. It goes over the affected joint(s) before you go to bed. It can't seize up this way since the finger can't bend.
