    Well with all of the people on the bag I'm sure there is a good number of folks that like fishing.

    I grew up fishing but I have moved more towards fly fishing over the last six or so years. I'd post photos from bass fishing yesterday (caught about eight of them in an hour) but I get uncomfortable about carrying my big camera (and expensive) on the water in a kayak. I need a small little pocket camera for fishing.

    Post your picks and your trips that you go on. :action-sm:action-sm

    Because I am a crazy gun nut, I will now magically turn this thread into a political discussion.

    Fishermen weigh in on proposed license

    BY KENNY PORPORA |Special to Newsday3:53 PM EDT, April 20, 2008

    At 6 a.m. on Sunday, the Bay Shore dock was empty under an overcast sky -- until Bill Moser unloaded his rod and bait from his truck and prepared for a day of fishing, just as he has for more than 50 years.

    Moser, 64, of Kings Park is an avid recreational fisherman and an even more avid opponent of the new proposal that would force recreational fishermen to register with the federal government and purchase a license before heading out to sea.

    In South Dakota, our recreational opportunities result in death for some form of lower animal. Most of 'em are delicious.

    For the most part, I only do salt-water fishing. In the last few years, I haven't done much at all. That's going to change this year.

    I try and make it down to Texas every summer and fish the gulf, usually around Galveston. every once in a while i'll go out on a deep sea boat, but I usually just fish from the shore around san luis pass.

    I also do some fly fishing when I get a chance and I keep a fishing pole on the 18 wheeler with me to fish whenever i find a spot.

    I went deep sea fishing in Cabo last month. I didn't catch a single goddamn thing. Our guides sucked, and made me hate deep sea fishing.

    For years I just had a cheap fly rod I bought from Wal-Mart when I was like 15 but then around 18 I got a very nice fly rod for Christmas from my mom, along with a new fly vest. I now have two of the same vest except one is too large (the one mom bought) but it works for when it's cold outside and I have a jacket on under it.

    I used to tie flies but I have to buy all new gear. When I had moved I put my stuff in a storage building for about a year and when I came back to get my gear out I found out that my $300 worth of tying material had been eaten by mites. I picked up a hackle skin and it was rotting and I saw little white mites crawling everywhere and on my hand. It pissed me off. So, I haven't gotten around to buying new stuff.

    I need to though. It's a great hobby.

    The only time I went deep sea fishing was in San Diego when I was about 12 years old. We didn't catch shit and it was the first time I had got sick on a boat because it was a very windy day with tons of waves. After a couple hours of waves it finally got to me.

    It was a very odd feeling. I have been on the water for most of my life and that was the only time I've ever gotten sick.

    Out of curiosity, how do you guys say "Crappie?"

    "croppy" or "crappy?"

    Here in the South we call them "croppy" but I have heard people from like NC say "crappy" and it just sounds stupid.

    Nice thread SAM, I was waiting to see if there were other baggers that fish. I do most of my fishing on Lake Michigan for salmon, trout and monster perch. I also fish up in Wisconsin for panfish, walleyes, smallmouth and northerns. But I spend well over 250 hours fishing Lake Michigan, I have a 24ft boat that I slip for the season. Here is a pic of sunrise while my buddy is fighting a fish.

    I've always wanted a boat with a cabin that I could do nothing but fish, dive and cruise around in the Carribean. Maybe when I get older I can get something like that. When I get older and retired I think I will study shipwrecks and go around as a hobby diving to look for relics.

    I mostly fish out of a kayak since it's small (45lbs) and easy to take for a solo trip. I catch and release 95% of the time though since I don't have a live well and it sucks dragging around a stringer of fish with a kayak. If I'm trout fishing then I eat all of those motherfuckers because they are lovely baked with some parsley and lemon :D

    maz doesn't know how to post photos yet
    but it's a SONY dscU20 i think
    hoping it's the memory stick
    do they go bad
    haven't really used it that much
    but had it for about 5 years

    it's about 2/3 the size of a pack of smokes
    perfect size for the pocket

    Did you ever get it wet? I'd have to see a photo to try to figure out what is causing the discolorization.

    It would be a fucked up image sensor that is a chip that actually gathers the light for the images. Depending on how much you paid for it, it may be worth it to send it into Sony and pay them a few bucks to repair it.

    You can always try a new memory card if you have a feeling that it may be a problem. I haven't ever had a memory card go bad on me. It's pretty hard for them to mess up since they are static devices that don't have any moving parts.

    I have an old school 35MM that will put streaks of light on my negatives but it's a problem with my shutter sticking and I have to get it fixed.

    You problem could also simply be the camera setting that you have put on that will cause chromatic aberrations in certain lighting conditions

    Like I said, it could simply be your settings mixed with a bad lighting situation. I couldn't tell without seeing a photo.

    been an avid angler since i was a lil' kid. fresh and saltwater.

    so yesterday i went down to burnham park(here in morris county NJ) and wasn't having much luck with the powerbait nuggets or meal worms. i got annoyed and put powerbait on all 3 poles and sat and waited and waited. got all annoyed and reeled the 1st 2 in. as i reached for the 3rd pole i noticed that i had a fish on. i jerked the pole to set the hook and started reeling in. i knew it was a trout because i was using powerbait but i never had one fight like this. this mug put up a hell of a fight. it was jumping out of the water trying to dislodge the hook. i got it in to the wall and realized i didn't have my net right next to me. i yelled to some dude fishing further down from me. he came running with my net for me and then i saw it.....i'm not sure what type of trout it was but it was at least 2 feet long and was almost lavender in color and had a white belly. just as i was bringing the net down to pick up my prize it jumped and got the hook out!!!!! along with my hook were 3 other hooks, 2 swivels and a weight. biggest trout i've ever, ever caught sadly i had it and it got away! i was soooooo pissed.

    i usually go up to cape cod in the summer and try to get some fishing done while i'm up there.

    [​IMG]i caught this 40" 45 lb striper after a liquid breakfast a few years back

    Walleye fishing in Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin. Don't know who these guys are but they're sure diehards. 10 walleyes over 10 pounds in two nights of fishing.

    that sucks that your guides weren't worth shit. trust me. try again next time you get a chance. the second you hook a nice one and reel it in you will be "hooked"(no pun intended)
