    Anyone into fishin'? If so for what and how often?
    I live on a lake so I bass fish as often as I can, sometimes everyday for a couple hours. I also try to make a couple trips a year to the Jersey shore to go out on the boats for Fluke, Bluefish, or Sea Bass.

    I work within 2 minuets of the Ashokan Resivoir....
    Great Smallmouth fishing and the Trout isnt to bad.....
    My boss and I try to make it to Pepactin Res. every spring for trout, much better trout fishing then Ashokan.....

    I also like to hit the little ponds, as some times they hold some mighty treasures.......


    But I would have to say my favorite fishing is ice fishing.....I start getting excited about ice fishing about the time spring turkey starts....:biggrin1:

    I went from having a pond in my backyard and fishing everyday to fishing maybe once or twice a year. When I lived in Illinois I had a pond that was stocked with Large Mouth, Crappies, Blue gills and catfish. With being unable to find a good and convenient fishing hole in PA, I have replaced my fishing hobby with flinging arrows now.

    I haven't been to the resivoir in years used to go all the time. I live on Tillson Lake, the fishing is Ok. It useed to be stocked in the 60's with trout and bass but it was drained 15 yrs ago to repair the dam and sat empty for 4-5 yrs so it hasn't been the same since.

    I love fishing the irrigation ponds in the apple orchards around here. There's monsters in them holes.

    Don't icefish as much as I'd like to, but that's the same with alot of things I guess.

    can't beat bass fishing

    Live near Lake Fork, great bass lake in Texas. You can't really beat the bite & fighting a bass back to the boat. Best this year was a 9.9 on a weightless 8inch lizard. :biggrin1:

    i have never caught a fish on a lizard.i have tried live ones and plastic . no luck. i have caught a lot on plastic worms. my favorite is the green tomato core worm.i guess my next favorite bait would be the spinner baits. then plugs. i've also had good luck with the motor oil color worms.

    Lizards do well here, weightless, texas rigged, or carolina rigged. I like using them because they are bulkier and looked darn in the water. Best colort is watermelon/Chart. w/ red fleck. Brushhogs do well also. Lately i have gotten into drop shot. Not real good yet but its a different presentation and I've had fun with it. It's as simple as all git'out. Kinda a like catfishing for bass.

    I live a mile from the biggest natural lake in the state and keep a boat in Gloucester (you know where the fish sticks come from) I have two kayaks, a canoe a 23 foot walk around and a 8.5 foot pram and not enough time to use them. I love diving and fishing.

    I haven't been striper fishing in years. I used to fish in Highland by the Mid-Hudson Bridge.
