Fishing Pictures

Recommended Posts

I am starting this thread for everyone to have a place to share their fishing pictures. I’ve just started fishing this year and I have fallen in love with it.

 

My best friend drinks lots and lots of wine and so has built a strong relationship with the owner of the winery he shops at, Rose. Rose has a big pond on a farm that is slap full of large mouth bass! It’s a super awesome fishing spot.

 

Rose’s Pond:

These are our first fish caught at Rose’s pond:

This one is my current pb (personal best). I was fishing a ned rig and on my second cast I got a bite. It felt normal, maybe a little weak/small, I thought it was a gonna be a small one and that I might be slightly embarrassed to hold it up. So I’m reeling it in, again it feels weakish and easy to reel in, when all the sudden it began swimming away from me and nearly tore the pole from my hands. I regained control of the pole and the cheap Shakespeare I was using was nearly bent all the way into an arc. My heart is pounding and I’m in total reaction mode trying to reel in as this thing is dragging line out of the cheap reel in my hands. Then it stops fighting and I see his large body barrel roll at the surface of the water. My friends who are with me both run over to where I am yelling and cheering! They saw my pole bend in half and know there’s a big fish on there! I got him to the bank and flung him behind me before he could break the cheap line on my reel. There he was, a chunky stud of a bass. I picked him up and had to use my whole hand, not just my thumb, in his mouth not to drop him. His mouth was so big that I could fit both my hands on his bottom lip!!! It was crazy! My friends who are much more experienced than me said he weighted at least 5lbs and may have even weighed as much as 6-6.5lbs or more. I was beside myself, really, for hours afterward. The feeling of catching that thing is alive in me now and has caused me to fall in love with fishing. Here he is:

This one is out of a tiny pond I found on Google Earth:

Me and my smallest boy Owen fished this pond for 30min without even the slightest nibble and I had let my line set right in front of me while I told Owen that it was time to go, “there’s no fish in here boy... just turtles” and BAM!!! A big ole bite! I lost the first bite and quickly landed the second one! They were right at my feet! You can’t see it well but it was a 2.5# largemouth bass!

We have a small retention pond at work and I got a wild hair one evening and whatdoyaknow! Fish!! A fair sized, and fairly rare in Georgia, white crappie. Kind of an ugly fish IMO.

These pics are from today, Labor Day. There’s a big waterfall in a neighborhood near my in-laws and above the waterfall is a fairly big dam:

I fished lure after lure for an hour trying to figure out what these bass might want.. finally I put a chatter bait on with a big swim bait trailer and BAM! Got one!!! I felt a genuine sense of thankfulness for the little guy.

Below the dam was a small concrete area where the water spills into. I cast into it with the chatter bait and instantly had the swim tail bitten off! After a few casts I pulled out some beautiful redbreast sunfish:

I’m not going to lie, it’s pretty nice - here were two of our stops before coming back to the lake up the street.

And its a Douglas Fir - Redwoods are California, it’s pretty much all Doug fir here.
