I enjoy fishing, used to belong to a bass club. I do a lot of fishing in the summer on the St. Lawrence River near Ogdensburg, NY. Smallmouth bass are my passion.

I fly fish. I love it. I am also lucky enough to be currently living in the area with the best fly fishing in the united states, south east idaho.

I enjoy the Eastern Sierras, Bishop to Bridgeport.  Lures & fly fishing are great.
I am jealous of jeffereynelson, living and fishing in Southeast Idaho would be awesome!

We've been known to get after the smallies too.

I grew up fishing nearly daily; bass, inshore, offshore, fly, worked charter boats and the marlin tournament circuit.  Grew up on boats, from home built pirouges to 60+ feet sportfishers.  Haven't wet a line in a year or 2, haven't been offshore in 5.  I have something to look forward to in retirement, I guess.

I used to be an avid, pretty technical fly fisherman here in Colorado.  With the ncreased popularity of the sport here along the front range, and resulting increase in the number of people on the streams, I pretty much gave it up for a number of years.  Last year I went minimalist and bought a Tenkara rig and spent some time poking around some smaller, more out of the way water and enjoyed myself.  Plan to start up again here soon before the runoff.   Haven't intentionally killed a trout in years.  More or less "wild" trout are a pretty precious thing around here these days.

That I would love to do someday!  In a smallish stream, in the fall, with streamers.....

As a kid growing up in Chicago I had an Aunt and Uncle living up in Minocqua, Wisconsin. They owned a resort up there. As soon as school would let out I'd be on a but up to Tomahawk, WI where they would pick me up and bring me to the resort. I'd fish for walleye, northerns, muskie, and yellow perch for the next 30-days, then back home to pick up the airline ticket that my grandparents would send me each year to come down to Clearwater, Florida where I would stay with them and use my grandfather's boat to fish Clearwater Bay for about a month. We also owned two party boats and a charter boat, so when they were not booked full I could always be found on one them fishing for grouper. In the bay I would fish for sand sharks, sea trout, pompano, and lady fish, and always did very well. Today, I fish local lakes here in Kansas as well as the Keni River in Alaska, and Boot Lake in northern Minnesota, plus just about any other body of water where I can get a line into. When I'm not fishing, I'm deer hunting or predator hunting, thinking about it or planning a trip, and when I'm not doing that, I'm trying to look like I'm a productive member of society by holding a regular job here at the American Institute of Baking in Manhattan, Kansas. Life is tough, but someone has to do it!

I did quite a bit of fishing in the Long Island sound growing up.  We'd fish for blues, blacks, flounders, flukes and strippers. Blues were my favorite to go after, as they put up quite a fight. Blues are also one of my favorite eating fish. If you smoke them up like salmon they taste incredible.

I haven't seen clean water or a boat in about 4 years :'(, Really miss it. I do get the occasional dream were I am surrounded by 60' muskies.

That and a good snowmobile dream....

i agree, im not a fan of straight blue fish, but smoked blue fish is outstanding, as long as you bleed them first, theyre great

i am in long island too, i fish all year round, cod in the winter, and blues, fluke, striper, seabass in summer

It has gotten so bad that Pops sold his boat, the Lagniappe,  because none of us sons could go fish with him. His and all of our dream boat, a 53' Hatteras, good motors and cold AC, properly rigged for bills.  No tower because he kept in in Ft Lauderdale.  Sigh
