I don't get the idea of bringing them into the boat for selfies. The beside the boat photos look better and are better for the animals we torture for our pleasure.

If you are going to release them, ffs release them in the water for big exhausted animals.

I get what punkin is saying, but I don't think this is the place to say it. I often wonder how many of the fish survive after being caught. I'm a catch and release fisherman, but all my fishing is in streams, rivers, lakes, and ponds. A big fish for me is anything over 16 inches long. haha. I haven't accidently killed a fish in about a decade, but it always made me sad. Not sad enough to stop fishing though.

This seems to be a thread where people post photos of their fishing trips, so I don't see anything wrong with posting photos of fish out of water here.

I have not fished since my stroke and three brain surgeries seven years ago.
But I will always be one. My Italian grandfather insured that.

Its been a frigid year here in Colorado with lots of lakes freezing over which is not typical. As a Wisconsin native, the frozen lakes had me regaling stories of cars on lakes in the winter to my young kids. I showed them this youtube video and we all cracked up.

No point saying it to non fishermen.

It's an alternate point of view is all, and i really think the leaning over the boat holding bill and looking back is a better shot.

I've caught lots of fish to eat, but i caught lots to release too. If that's the plan i do what i can to make sure the plan is successful is all.

Not putting people down, and i wouldn't downvote someone for calmly proposing an alternate view.

I’m looking forward to some warmer weather to go fishing. I’ll post some photos for punkin.

Love me some fishing pics. Have to live vicariously nowadays.

Haven't got any mates who fish nowadays, and right when i've moved over to the coast and to where i used to come fishing on holidays too!

Bought a brand new boat a year and a half ago, my mate lost interest so never really finished wiring the battery, sounder and electric motor. It's never been in the water due to lack of interest, mud crab machine.

Aww man, if you aren't going to use your boat you should sell it and get a pinball machine. haha.
Fishing is definitely more fun when someone can join you. I end up doing mostly solo trips fishing from streams, rivers, or ponds. I do have some kayaks, so sometimes my son will join me or I'll meet up with a friend. Lack of time is my biggest problem, so I end up fishing last minute and don't have time to coordinate with someone.

I've fished all my life till the last few years, caught everything i could reach from 15' long to 4" long, just lost the passion for it. If i had a mate who was interested (and didn't mind staying sober to drive the car) i'd get back into it. the boat as it sits only owes me a few grand, and costs less than a couple hundred a year to register boat and trailer.

I'll use it one day, or it's another asset if i need to cash it in.

Some of the best days of my life have been spent in canoes fishing.

Owned this for over 15 years.

One of my favourite catches.. not the biggest.. but really clean and shiny.

Was particularly relieved to land this one, as unlike in a boat, where you can meet the fish in deeper water and net it fairly easily... the river bank can become quite crowded, so when you have a spring/chinook/king like this on, you need to basically make yourself menacing enough to clear the area of other anglers (not as easy as it seems.. and yes, I've read in the local news about people pulling fillet knives on other anglers). A tangle with another line, letting the fish go too far, bringing it in too quickly, or hitting a snag, is going to lose the fish 100% as the region is barbless hooks only with a fairly strong current that has taken more than a few souls over the years.

Wish I had some photos after the catch.. but since they come in groups, order of the day is to get your line back in the water asap .. so this was after I was back home.

Unfortunately, this whole river bar has since been washed completely away.. but it definitely was one of my favourite fishing spots.. miss it dearly.

[quoted image][quoted image]</blockquote. Didn’t know TN had such a robust walleye population .Very interesting

#217 1 year ago

The last 2 pictures are sauger. Post #214 is a sauger and a Walleye. There are several waterways in TN with both. There are not anywhere near the numbers as up north but there are some big fish here. They are just hard to catch and harder to find.

How do you cook these?

Fried, grilled, or pan seared. I probably like grilled the best. Hard to screw up a walleye or sauger fillet other than over cooking them.

You really don't know dick about the fishery then. We caught 60+ walleye almost every day and kept 12. Lake Erie has the largest walleye stocking program in the world. Fuck, learn before you speak.

So you kept 12 every day or you caught 60 every day and keep 12 total over many many days?

#239 7 months ago
Quoted from northerndude:

We kept 12 every day that we fished. Most days boated between 60-75 fish. The creel limit is 12 for a reason. Erie is one of the best managed fisheries in the world and it shows. They have protected windows for spawning and the best stocking program anywhere which is paid for by the anglers. The more anglers that fish there, the more money goes right back into stocking.

Ah. We call such cultivated lakes for put n take. Dont really consider it proper fishing either.. No harm meant though!

Most people don't have the equipment, knowledge, or skill to fish Lake Erie very successfully. It can be very tough at times and is a very dangerous lake at times as well. We had an amazing trip because we are good fisherman that worked our buts off. You're not just going to show up anywhere on lake Erie and catch fish. You have to know the migration pattern, correct techniques, correct depths, and you still have to make daily adjustments. Even with all of that if you get the wrong wind you can just stay home. It's a properly managed lake, not a paylake.

#242 7 months ago

Well, fill your boots I guess.
I don’t have to agree with it to be correct or incorrect. I just don’t that’s all.

I live at a world class walleye destination, and I live and grew up at a massive inland lake. With a property at the latter, I’ve seen both overfished and always wondered why fisherman keep so many. I fish, I keep one or two for supper here and there and it’s the fishing that’s keeps me coming back, not the keeping.

Looks like a great fishing trip and was successful.

If you are talking about Tobin lake, it is nice. I wouldn't call it overfished though (at least it wasn't 2 years ago when I was there). If it was, a lake that far north certainly would not still be producing 10# fish which is pretty uncommon that far up. The biggest issue there is it gets year round pressure. That's why they have a 3 fish limit. Erie does not get solid ice for ice fishing and has a protected season during spawning. There is a big window during the year that it's barely fished. We are not keeping fish just to keep them. We eat a lot of fish and have 2 family fish fries each year with over 30 people. I also sign up online for each state I visit and try to report all of my catches so the creel counters have the most accurate data they can. I'd much rather eat fish that I caught than whatever crap is in the grocery store. I keep what we will use for the year and I don't feel bad about it. I also release thousands of fish each year. Fish how you like, release or keep whatever you like that's legal. Don't give someone a bunch of crap that you don't even know though. I do my part for conservation and then some in ways I'm not wasting my breath on here.

Went on two Lake Michigan charters this year. Did one a few weeks ago and another one this past Friday. Really like this picture of my son with One of TWO 17# Lakers he caught that day !

Another Coho from the trip we did in mid July. Yup - wore the same shirt that time too. Seems to be good luck.
