    Wow, bragging about your sexual conquests is one thing, but posting their picture here?

    That looks like a big assed steelhead.
    I was on a fishing trip with my two Coos Bay buddies when the brother of one of the guys caught a 27 lb. steelhead on a dry fly. On the same trip I saw both a steelhead with a huge bite out of it's belly, apparently by a bear and a mass of spawning steelhead so thick and with their backs out of the water you could practically walk across them. My memory's not that great and it might have been a mass of silvers.

    I like catching more than fishing.

    You may be irreverent, but it sure beats a corn dog.

    Such as catching the flu? Or perhaps catching a ration of shit from the boss?
    I prefer catching a fish while fishing, but then, that's just me.

    I recently hooked a trophy trout from my kayak in the middle of a lake...incredible fight...didn't have a net...got it within 2 ft of the side and she slammed down on the surface and took the bait and hook....left the sinker...really fun fishing...later I caught a 10 inch trout on the first nibble without any fight....I prefer fishing to catching.

    Well this is weird.. I haven't been fishing since I was a kid, and I'm pretty sure that was just at a fish farm a few times. I didn't have any affinity for it. But for some strange reason, reading this thread is really making me want to get into fishing! I need a pole.

    Hey! Any Bass fisherman, that can confirm or set straight the reports on Bass fishing in the John Day river near Tongue Pt?
    I am not in that river now, just close. They were sure jumping in the Kerry slough, up stream about 18 miles.

    I am not really a fisherman nor a hunter, but I can remember when it was my livelihood. It never became a sport to me, but I can still see doing a little fishing. Good eating.

    First a disclaimer. It has been about 10 years since I have fished that area. So maybe someone has more recent info.

    That area was one of my favorite fishing grounds, for salmon, sturgeon, bass and bluegill. Fished it for many decades.

    If you have a dingy you can fish out of? Go up the John Day working the shallow bank areas.. Maybe start by trolling a lure till you find fish that want to play, then work that area.

    Good luck, it is a fun little river. Oh, if you have a crawdad trap, throw it over the side of MarAzul. You may catch a tasty dinner without working for it.

    Thank you sir. I will keep it mind for the next time by here. Might plan to spend a bit more time. Prepping for sea now though.

    No. But I take it is a recommendation.

    I ate one crawdad tail in my life and that was when my cousin and I were about 10 or 11. We were fishing in Tryon creek when my cousin dared me to eat a crawdad tail along with him. We took a 5 lb. coffee can and put some creek water in it. We lit a fire on the bank of the creek and threw a couple crawdads in. We both ate our tails but then my cousin says we can suck the thorax. He sucked the thorax of his and I threw the thorax of mine somewhere, either the creek or the brush. That's the only crawdad I've ever eaten and it's the only crawdad I'll ever eat unless I'm starving to death and then it's doubtful. Now, cold water lobster is a different story, gimme some, and then gimme some more.
    The fresh water perch is my favorite eating fish although I suspect that crappie and blue gill are similar.
    Salmon is excellent if you don't over cook it and it almost always gets overcooked. I once had some grilled king salmon at Ray's Boathouse in Seattle that was absolutely perfect. It was so perfect that my mouth waters thinking about it even though I ate it about 6 or 7 years ago. Yum.

    You know what's cool about fishing? It has no politics, no arguing over religion, sexual status or anything else. It's just pure fun.
    What's better than on a camping and fishing trip to wake up to a warm fire, the smell of coffee and bacon and the sound of fish sizzling in the frying pan? Answer - Nothing.
