Went to the Nantahala today. Fished below the hydro plant until it started generating, then went above it. Hit for the cycle with the best being this 15"ish brown.
Where's the tiger?
the water in this state is so fucked. The fishing in the bay has been great last few years since catching back up from the big freeze years.
TB has just joined the other estuaries and bodies of water this state has lost probably forever. Apalachicola bay, the Everglades/10k islands, Florida bay, Charlotte harbor, mosquito lagoon, Indian river and biscayne bay on its way
Never heard of one being in the south.
the hatcheries don’t stock them. they don’t spawn the brook and brown together.
Anybody in here have a simrad in their boat?
I have a lowrance. They’re like Chevy/gmc
Was trying to figure out how to turn all the old tracks off. There's so many damn tracks I can't even see where I'm going. I know you can uncheck "display" on each one but that would take forever. Or you can just delete them all. I'm considering deleting all of them. There are still waypoints and routes saved so I'd still be good on that.
I delete them every once in a while but I have Florida marine tracks so I don’t really need them
It's not as bad as you think. The Dream Stream can get crowded, but if you don't mind hiking a little you can always find a good spot.
User HOOSINSC is correct about Tomahawk. Fish get huge there and it's never crowded.
10-4 on deleting them occasionally. But I'm confused about the Florida marine tracks comment. What do the tracks being in Florida have to do with anything?
I love my pathfinder 2200v but it gets beat to hell in chop (although trim tabs really help riding in 2+ foot seas). Has absolutely no V. It's awesome for shallow water fishing though. I was fishing in 2 feet yesterday. Could absolutely not do that in a deep V boat like a Cobia, Contender etc. But for a family boat I'm probably going to have to go with a deeper V next time. Maybe some sort of hybrid.
FMT is a chip with satellite imagery with tracks overlayed. Good for running areas you aren’t familiar with especially if rocky
I was saying I don’t really care about my previous tracks as I have routes from the chip that I know I can run already
nothing like spot burning from 1500 miles away!
I don't mind sharing the good spots with fellow TMBers
Wanted to get in on the micro fishing discussion
As a sabiki rig enthusiast for 25+ years I’d like to say I’m a micro fisherman since youth.
Fishing the tarpon rodeo out of Grand Isle this weekend.
Hope they aren’t still killing tarpon for pictures
People who kill tarpon can go fuck themselves.
It’s Louisiana, a state that not only doesn’t practice conservation, but bitches and moans when it is even discussed. Of course there is a kill category.
Saw a nice daisy chain riding home today. Only had trout gear with me though.
tbt- had a facebook memory pop up from 2013 of my biggest crappie
I need to go back thru this thread and find my slab. Search function sucks.
thread was started in 2010, it’s highly likely ive posted that one before.
Operator error imo
You probably aren't wrong.
You beautiful bastard.
Read Lord of the Fly a month or two ago. The fly fishermen in Homassasa only killed them when they thought it was a world record.
Owner of my local fly shop was a guide during this time down there and mentioned/quoted in the book. He told me his favorite person was the gangster who shot up the restaurant.
That is a whole other level of chase a few levels above your typical redfish sight casting. Might only get a few shots a week.
That's an awesome read.
It was Gary Merriman from the Fishhawk. Got a buddy who fishes in the Don Hawley and other Keys tournaments and his stories are wild.
Would love to catch a 100 pounder one day and keep a scale. Would be the size of a pancake.
If you enjoy those old Homasassa stories, check out Andy Mills podcast with those guys. The first few are all about that time period
Got the call today my new Tibor Everglades reel has arrived. Black with blue knob (and blue backing) is going to look great with my H3D Panda. Turks & Caicos the week before Thanksgiving chasing bonefish. Excited to upgrade from my Orvis Hydros 8 weight reel and re-purpose with 6wt sinking line.
SW Montana is starting to shut down. Inside Yellowstone is Hoot Owl conditions so no fishing from 2p to 7p and expected to further restrict. Seeing the Madison is restricting also.
Had a pretty good day on the Davidson today
Got skunked trying to catch crappie this morning
How far up were you, above the hatchery?
thats a killer brown. love the spots.
above avery creek? what was the traffic like leaving the area?
I started at Looking Glass Creek and fished my way to about 2/3 of the way to the hatchery.
I didn't see another fisherman the entire time, but when I left, most spots were packed out with swimmers. There was a little traffic, but nothing crazy.
weekday is the way to go this time of year
meredith mccord gets another record. have seriously considered taking my kid with me and a friend out just to get some records. he has talked about guiding after he retires and it would be good advertising.
Pike and bluegill are too underrated table fare. Pike is as good as anything freshwater if the person cleaning fish knows what they’re doing.
My st croix rod replacement finally arrived
Box pic was day 1 , pic of them on board was day 2. Worn out.
Mostly 75-100 ft of water. Inshore rigs and wrecks. egg, swivel, #2 circle hook. Mangrove love the live shrimp. more subtle bite. Reds were usually caught on squid, croaker, shrimp, and we’d cut up small reds that were probably gonna die anyways and use for cut bait. At times were hanging on for dear life in 4-5 ft seas. 25 ft sportsman.
I've been tying up some flies mimicing ones that the guides used out west. Turning out ok.
Fished the upper St Joe in Idaho. Had no clue what I was doing (new river). Caught over 20 cutts, saw a moose with baby way too close for comfort.
I fished #10 dry caddis, as well as a hopper/dropper with a pretty large nymph. There was a period of 45 min where every cast on the hopper/dropper received a take.
Nothing like a big trout exploding on a dry fly. Except maybe a big tarpon. Fly fishing is so good.
This was that brown from the Davidson
