If you use a rare earth magnet for bait, you can catch Gunfish.

This is a few years ago, after a rare December snow. Maternal grandfather dug this pond himself in his hometown after retiring in the late 1950s. Kept it stocked with bass and bream.

He also had a little 3/2 brick ranch built. Spent many summers and a many weekends there. He taught us (three grandsons between his two children) how to cast, hook bait (worms, crickets, and catalpa worms). He made slide whistles from the catalpa trees, too.

I haven't fished in decades, but this will always be my favorite fishing hole.

Was that taken a few weeks ago when there was some flooding? I caught my first legal Muskie about an hour NW of your pic.

Yeah, the rain lately has really swollen all the lakes and rivers around here.

These are just stock images of the general vicinity of one stretch of river I like, since I don't share specifics of where I fish online but - The Upper Chena River, outside Fairbanks, AK has some pretty sweet grayling fishing.  Go past mile 45 or so on the Hot Springs Rd, pick a branch and start walking, and you can find many such spots.  If we ever meet in person, I'd be happy to take you to out to some of my favorites.

When I die, my family will scatter my ashes here, Steve Buscemi Big Lebowski style (but, hopefully without the blowback).  We could afford an urn, but I won't notice.

I have had no interest in fishing since seeing this at a young impressionable age. (Thanks USA Up All Night\Saturday Nightmares!!) This certainly put things into perspective for me. I would hate to go eat a nice tasty sandwich only to find metal piercing my face dragging me up into the unknown. Terrifying shiat when you think of it that way.

My brother has one. It's a lot more fun than you think, considering it vibrates when you hook a fish.

Wow. Some nice pics! I used to fish with my dad, and I loved the experience. But I just can't stomach eating fish. So I don't fish, as I won't kill something I'm not going to eat.
But I love the experience. It was so fun going out to the river, with the dogs and friends, it was so primal and yet so familiar. I should just meet someone who does eat fish, and go fishing with them and give them my fish. Hmmmm...Why haven't I thought of this before?

Calero reservoir. San Jose Cal.

Calero isn't big, but it has a healthy shad population, which feeds an even healthier largemouth bass population. I've fished and camped all over this state, but Calero will always be home. I've spent thousands of hours there. Will likely have my ashes spread there when I die.

I've been there many times in my life, starting in childhood.  I fished there as a young teen with a best friend that later died in his early twenties.  Lots of good memories of that area.

The cool thing about Calero is that it's only 15 minutes from silicon valley. Because of this, Calero has a decent population of large goldfish. People move out of the area and decide they can't take their pet goldfish to their new home, so they dump Goldy in Calero. We see them regularly schooling around with the carp in the lake.

Occasionally we see them just slowly drifting around just under the surface, as carp are sometimes prone to do. We scoop them up, take a quick pic, then post a 'fishing report' with the pics online. We act like we were only targeting the goldfish and give bizarre baits and tactics. Good times.

Here's my favorite spot. Northwestern Ontorio, several hours down remote logging roads. This particular Muskie was 41" and 18 pounds. My brother caught a 50"er recently as well.

I caught a few muskies trolling a rapel off the back of canoe  in Quetico PP.  First time there didn't bring a net (having to carry everything on your back for portage) and had to use a paddle. After that decided there are light weight nets.

I have already caught trout this year even with my dogs splashing around. I know where to walk in and off leash dogs are simply in training as far as rules are concerned. A 45 minute hike in and no dry fly snobs.

I dont lake fish much anymore. I have a lot more fun searching out hidden little nameless creeks where no one ever goes. It's fun not knowing what I might catch next. My honeyhole is an old mill pond I found way out in the woods while following one of those creeks. I keep that one all to myself.

The thought of fishing only takes me back to my youth, the best part of my life. Walking thru the woods with my buddies on the way to one of the local ponds. 10 zillion bluegills and a couple bass and bullheads. Would give a lot to go back to those days.

Wife and I did just get off the (Little Miami) river after a glorious day kayaking. Could not have asked for a better day. Saw a number of people fishing and made me wish for a pole. This is where we take out...

I also have permission to fish on swan's section of river so it is easy to catch some.
