Goin up to the big res to do a bit of Smallie fishing - so you won't hear from me for a coupla days.
I mention it so you don't worry for me.
I don't need you to worry for me
I can do that all myself.

Weather kind of sketchy what with all the T-Storms
but it'll be all right
I'm well provisioned and them Smallies don't stand a chance.

Any fishermen here?
Oh - certainly not - it's sort of a man thing.
Momentarily forgot my audience's character.

Well - enjoy my absence.

Jeez, pal - you didn't even ask how my fishing trip went.
What kind of pal doesn't ask how a pal's fishing trip went?

I mean, sure - I can understand that Mr Wimple not asking,
but from you I expect better.

How was your fishing trip?
Okay. Very tiring hiking the scree on the Res banks. Very steep.
Fish sleepy.
Did you catch a lot of fish? And what do you do with the fish you catch?
First day not so bad,
second day not so good.
T-Storms probably drove them deep.
Still, some strikes on top,
but no hookups except one dink.
Locals complained it was an off day also.
Seemed to like the Spook Jr
Should have had a black spook
would have made a better target
than the bone color given the overcast conditions.

Fish go back to grow more and make babies.

Trout I occasionally fish for a meal.
Bass is for sport.

I like fishing but we don't have any Bass this far north. My fav fresh water fish to eat is walleye followed by perch.

Pike get big and are fun to catch but they are to boney to eat.

You in the Taiga? Must be plenty far north if no Smallmouth bass.
Some lakes/rivers/reservoirs here have Northern and Musky. I never fished them.
I catch their little cousins, Pickerel and dread them. Too many sharp teeth, slimy, squirmy
got huge mouths that take down whole lures deep. Last year I caught a moderate sided one on a Sexy Dawg Jr. I lifted it by the line clear of the water and was like
Where the fuck's my lure? I had to head the thing and 15 minutes later recovered it having carved away
bit by bit that whole head down to the gills.
The only way I've heard that they can be cooked to deal with the bones is to cube the flesh then boil it.
That'll soften them little bones and make them consumable.

^^^ I'm in the foothills of the Rockies at 53.399 North Latitude.

Southern Canuckistan has bass but not up here but we do have Arctic Char and Bull trout which is very similar to Dolly Varden.

I love to catch catfish. My favorite fish to eat....flounder and salmon coming in second. Any of you ever go fly fishing? I've tried but I am NOT good at it. I am patient when it comes to fishing (of course that comes with the sport) but fly fishing to me is difficult.

It's not hard,you just need a few pointers ! Find a fly shop near you that give's lessons and to bad you are not by me in the heart of some of the best fishing in Calif. and in fact had a place on Hat Creek with 180 feet of water front. Buney Falls was 11 mile's from me >>>
