Hiya

Used to be CRAZY about fishing, until one day i decided to see whats happening UNDER the water!!!! :D

The only time i now go fishing is when the weather is really bad for diving. We also use incorporate fishing in our spearfishing tactics. This is very helpfull for spearing Yellowtail Kingfish in dirty water. The tend to not be very inquisitive when the water is dirty. A guy (normally me!!!) spins with a spoon from the boat, casting towards birds which are working on the baitfish. The fish then follows the spoon, back to the boat where your divers are patiently waiting!!! ;)

Other than that, i've gone through the whole bit, from freshwater fishing for Carp, Barbel, Trout (not very good with a fly-rod though!!) to estuary to Rock & Surf to Boat to Blue Water. My favourite is still fighting YF Tuna on 30lb Stand-up tackle. A 50-60kg fish will take about 30minutes to land and a 70-80kg fish, anything from 1-3 hours!!! HUGE fun!!!

I will happily fish and hunt both on land and in the water . . . if I can ever figure out how to make a pig take a lure! :D

Love to go fishing but am very much out of touch with it presently, learnt it as a child from my grandad mostly. Soon as I overcame my fear of things as a child and got into the water, I abandoned my rod and nets in favour of diving from there on in. I did a couple of night sessions for bass last Summer, casting from the beach which was nice, didn't land any but one or two others did. I still do a little trawling for mackerel and bass during the Summer too but 90% of the time is devoted to dives between scuba and spearing.

Nice pics :cool:

I love to go fishing with my husband. Once we have finalized our move I plan to go alot. I have never been fishing in salt water and i am anxious to try. But as I said in another thread, the only thing I want to get with my bare hands or even a net is a floridian lobster!

Have fun and enjoy!

Hmmm, I've worked for people like that. The temptation was always to attach a wallet to a string tied to a grenade with the pin pulled after it was stuffed in a tin can. That sort of thing was very popular in Viet Nam. But of course I wouldn't suggest that someone so pretty would do something so dastardly. You ought to leave it to those of us to whom it comes naturally. :martial
