Anybody here like fishing? BG Saltwater, bottom fishing, lake, stream, whatever. List the equipment you use, the reason you fish(fun or for food), what you like to catch, where you like to fish and anything else you can think of!
For saltwater I use a Shakespeare Ugly Stik, Penn 309M Levelwind and Stren Superbraid. I mainly use this pole to drop live sardines for ahi, mahi-mahi and white sea bass.
I have two freshwater poles. One Fenwick Eagle GT and a ST. Croix Avid. Both rods have Shimano Symetre reels. One reel is spooled with 6lb Berkely Vanish and the other has 10lb Stren Superbraid.
When fishing fresh I usually go to Lake Poway or Lake cuyamaca. I mainly fish lures(spinners, jigs, spoons, crankbaits, plastics) but I will occasionally use worms and go for catfish.
Once a year when I go to Hawaii I get to use some REALLY nice stuff. My uncle is a fishing freak(like me ) and he made his own rods. So Im using custom made rods with Penn International reels and all that good stuff. Out there we are going for Marlin, Mahi-mahi, ahi and he said that he's had a mako hit the bait he was trolling.
I fish for fun and food and will normally keep the fish that I catch. Unless it's something like a HUGE trout or bass, then I try to let them go so they live to get bigger and get caught another day.
