    I'm from Nebraska and naturally our lakes and rivers freeze. They have been thawing out nicely and allowed some angling to be done. I went to the private lake today and hooked a decent bass. Can't wait for the temp. to rise and spawning to begin!!!

    I used to go out a lot. I can throw on the waders and spend hours and hours, days upon days chest deep in water.

    Then I had kids....


    So, it's been about 7 or 8 years since I've been out seriously. Now that my son is 7, I might be able to start again. I bought us some new rod/reel combos from Cabellas, and I'm waiting for opening day.

    I attempt to catch fish at least 2-3 times a month. One thing I miss from Nebraska was ice fishing. And catfishing on the Missouri River. But I love these Texas crappie too! I'm hoping to get out a bit Saturday evening.

    The crappie are just starting to bite here. It'll pick up over the next month. Hey, merc, where did you live in Nebraska?

    My DH is a devout "fishinguy". We are looking at our first PUP. We're going to his home state of Louisiana to camp and do some fishing in the gulf. He is going to ATEMPT to show me how to fish...<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_yummy.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Yummy">.

    Live in a gated community and they just stocked our lake with 800 lbs of rainbow trout and 200 lbs of channel cats. Fishing on the lake reopens this Monday.....I'll be there first thing!

    fishguy1313,

    Sorry about the long wait... I missed your response to this some how. I'm originally from Homer. About an hour or so north of you on Hwy 77.

    Here's a cell phone pic of some crappie we caught on the 11th of this month.

    We have the fishing bug so bad, We cant seem to camp any where we cant fish. We take our boat with us. Granted. We have only camped 2 times. In the past few months. First trip was in a tent Oct 08 (Bought Pup that next week) at EG Simmons park, in FL because of the fishing. and Second was same place, in April 09 in the pups first trip. And if we arent Camping there. We just drive there to fish. Or we fish on the Skyway bridge. So we fish a couple times a month. We used to own a place at http://www.panavistalodge.com/ on lake panasoffkee but sold it 2 years ago. Lot rent got to high. But now thinking of Camping there. Got to get some issues worked out with boat motor first.

    You can click on the globe under my name to see EG Simmons park pics.

    I keep the fishing bug, now my nephew has it and that is a good thing. Fishing during the day and star gazing at night.

    We always have the fishing bug, but right now, are having boat issues. Im searching for a boat forum to see what up with the engine. Hope to have it fixed soon, but looks like its going to the shop. Ouch!!!

    Im with you, I could be out there all day, not catch any thing, and have the most wonderfulest time.

    Boat is in the shop, having carburator rebuilt for the 2nd time in 7 months. First shop didnt fix it, so its at a different shop that came highly recommended. So hope it gets fixed right so we can take it camping with us in a few weeks.

    But think we need to hit the skyway bridge till then.

    I have always enjoyed fishing, but the last time before this year that I went, was supposed to be Sept. 11, 01. I was ready to go, but being married to a fireman, once we heard-he had to go, and that was that.

    So, this year, when on my second Webelos Woods with my middle son, I fished. I got the bug right back, and I have the rods and reels ready, bait in the fridge (daughter is totally disgusted) and new sinkers, bobbers, and hooks in my tackle box.

    Ready to FISH. [:D]
