In AZ my then husband and I would go upto a place called the Crossing outside of Payson. It was so nice and great small place to camp and we walked up and down the creek fishing. It was wonderful. Then folks that camped at our spot started leaving there trash and a old junk car. We were so sad. Now I haven't been up there in 15 yrs or more. Lot of good memories tho. My husband used to laugh cause I hate the feel of holding a fish so I wear a rubber glove to unhook (with the exception of large mouth bass)

Gman thats probly true, but if ye wanna catch monster hold-over trout then Sept/Oct when water levels are low at headwaters below dams is tough to beat. Thats when trouts head upstream with a vengeance. Heck even if they aint stocked nearby areas in months there's always trout below cold water source at foot of dams, feedin on surface at sunset. And some of those tiniest little sips y'all see in middle of lakes at/near sundown are often giant trout munching insects. Ye cut open the belly of large 3-6 lb trout if yer lucky enough to catch one and find tons of insects its been eatin.

Meanwhile bass'n panfish oughta be nesting in shallows soon - they's actually my favorite early summer catch, taggin em with popper lures on surface especially so can see em strike. Seen giant bucketmouth bass jump clear outa the water hittin hulla popper lure fished froggy style as if its paddling up to their nest reaal slow. For sure, territorial critters is panfish and bass guarding their nests - have seen 6" bluegills chase away deadly dangerous cottonmouth snakes by flaring their spiked back fins and slamming into them snakes.

Catfishin i aint been successful at, seems like cats just sorta munch whatever bait i'm usin on the bottom and spit out the empty hook with me not knowin how/when to set it. Gotten my pocket picked by catfish so often at Carlsson, i dont even try for em anymore. Whats the secret to catfishin, Missy?? How can ye tell when gettin a strike? Or do ye just tie baited hooks to willow tree branches that overhang waters and then take a nap under the tree.

C'mon we gotta have some really cool fishin stories here..... Any noodlers on this board? Yeah i know its illegal - but in 90 degree heat like we had last summer i been tempted to try it myself.

Honey I have no secret, it's just luck. I haven't been able to really fish in quite a while. The best cat I have ever caught was a huge albino somewhere in Bullitt County (I think it was) back when I was 18. I had no sooner than cast when I caught her, problem was she was full of eggs so I threw her back. I was just using good ol' worms.

I was catfishing in the Ohio River during it's flooding a couple years ago. had my nightcrawler on the hook and sitting on the bottom. Didn't have my rod holder with me so I stuck the pole through the legs of my chair, tightened my line, and started working on another pole.. Felt a bump on my chair and looked down just in time to see my rod and reel float off into the backwater! A friend fishing close by cast out a couple times and snagged my line. Got my rod and reel back plus about a 3 lb catfish!

What's unladylike about it? My 85 yr old mother, the one who fusses at me if I haven't sent out thank you notes from Christmas by New Years, will move quick if you put a cane pole in her hand!
