Shoot, I've been fishing since I was knee high to a grasshopper. If you get back in it, you will probably be hooked again. LOL! We used to fish with catalba worms, but here recently, the trees don't have any on them. They are great for bait. The lakes around here are down really low. We went to Lake Horton and you couldn't even put your boat in the water at the docks.
MIAMIVT, I did not get back into fishing until last year, I found the love again. You can go to a local Walmart find a decent Rod and Reel, fairly cheap ($20) With all the gear, shop around too. But I have slowly built up my collection, they have a clearance aisle with things real cheap too. At least in my area. I also have lots of fishing buddies to ask questions and learn from. The key thing like everything else is to get out there and just do it. I have used youtube and found great instructional videos on fishing cleaning filleting too. I google info and read up a lot. And we here on this site would love to help and answer questions for you!

i'm still fairly young (25) my dad took me fishing a lot when I was a kid, I think I enjoyed it 75% of the time. It's something that I'd really like to start doing again, but I don't have anything, no poll, no tackle, nothing. Plus the last time I fished I was 10, so I obviously wasn't very "good" It seems like it's one of those things that when you are grown you can't really get into it unless you've been doing it forever. Plus I don't know how to fillet it or anything
I hope to get out this Saturday, I had to send to the state so I can get my title for my boat and trailer. I hope that doesn't take long. Did get a lot of Bluegill on another local little lake with my brother inlaw, had a great time!

Went out on the Potomac this past saturday. Caught 17 smallmouth bass, one was 17 inches. Went crabbing sunday. Put four dozen keepers in the boat with 400 throw backs (too small).

that's great. Nothing like it. Now you can get to that itch you've been wanting to scratch! LOL!
I love to fish, caught some nice crappie and lots of blue gill, the other day, had one heck of a fish fry that night, also caught some bass, a 15 inch one but this lake has a size limit of 18 inches so back it went.
I enjoy sitting on the boat floating, letting all my worries flow away. Nice and relaxing even if they aren't biting that day. Soak uo some sun and fun for me.
Never had a chance for some deep sea fishing though i want to try it!

agree with you there man. My husband can utter some profane syllables when he's fishing. LOL!! I like to sunbathe myself sometimes even better than casting a line, but there's no better feeling than when you hook into a big one, especially when deep sea fishing. You don't know what's gonna be on the other end of that hook! Gives me a thrill!!

I'd hardly call it a sport, more of a pastime. I have a friend with a boat and he takes me fishing from time to time. I learned that I really enjoy the sitting time and the peace. Casting a line and baiting a hook gets in the way of my sittin' quiet time.
