    Fanglers (Foo Anglers) What type of fish did you catch in 2013?

    Allens trout, trout , trout, trout thread got me thinking. I had a best fishing year ever and all was work related.

    Lake Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, Arctic Grayling, Rainbow Trout, Sturgeon, Grouper, Coho Salmon and Halibut.

    What all did you pull out of the water? Bonus points if it was Jimmy Hoffa.

    Lots of riding this year, not much fishing. Went out with frogs and Senko's a few times for largemouth.

    Rainbow, brook, brown trout.
    walleye, yellow perch, pickerel, and spotted bass.
    Crappie, bream (several verrities), largemouth.

    most fun I've had this year is targeting grass carp in the resovoir nearby. Twenty pound grassies are not uncommon there.

    I throw a fly rod 90% of the time for everything in the water.

    For bream,
    Top water I like white foam spiders, #4-10 poppers, and spun caddis flys.
    Sub surface, by and far wooly buggers are my best producers. Tying them with a Petitjean magic head is almost an unfair advantage.

    A popper with a copper john nymph as a dropper is a really good combo for still water.

    ...in spite of my avatar sign, I did not buy a license this year.

    I'm pretty sure i will for 2014, though. Questionable whether I'll pop for a salmon stamp
    but there's a run in the river a half block from my house, so it's hard to resist.

    It just makes me sad to fish for salmon any more.

    Except for a few warm water creeks and the Okefenokee swamp, Georgia's freshwater fisheries are all artificial (hence most of the fish on my list are cold water verities).

    I do my best to leave the native species alone. They have enough problems without me shanking a hook in their mouth. Would love to hang into a big alligator gar, but there ain't that many left. I hear the snakehead in Fla's canals are a hell of a lot of fun though.

    Did not fish as much as I wanted this past year... unless you count the keeper I landed in Portland.

    Did catch some Pike and smaller trout earlier on in the year... missed out on the Mountain Whitefish because of forest fires in the areas we frequent.

    I am going to have to start dragging a fly rod around with me.

    When the bream start hitting top water there is nothing like a fly rod.

    I do well with a rooster tail on my spinner.

    Don't the permit costs on those stack up pretty quickly too?

    Bass, perch, catfish, crappie, tilapia, drum and trout. I think I caught 1 trout during my week in Colorado, but I let it go. Actually, I let all the fish go.

    Caught a bunch of pollock off the Homer Spit. Caught a rock and some bushes in my trout fishing attempt this year.

    Not to mention the exorbitant release fees.


    This year I caught brown and rainbow trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, white perch and yellow perch, and bluegill.

    They were a little steep... but well worth it as I have not ever had anything tastier.

    I prefer the Pembina... it is a 45 minute drive and the Walleye fishing is incredible.

    Caught a 6 pound Walleye the last time, she was a big girl full of eggs so I am hoping she went on to produce more for the next time I get out there.

    I think my favourite is Perch... they are the most self sustaining and incredible delicious and when the bite is on you can barely reel them in fast enough.

    I didn't touch my rod once this year.

    Kinda regret it, it, but my Dad got into MTB and my free time was spent riding with him so not really.

    Next year, I'll get myself a nice fly rod. Haven't owned my own yet.

    ...as a reward for participation in this thread, I now get the Filson ad on BF,
    offering me the above fly reel for the phenomenal price of $825.

    If I go camping and hiking with it, I can take along my Filson axe for $335.



    That they would target me with this advertising confirms my suspicion I'm a 1%er.
