Info Survey????

9 posts in this topic

Ive been on this website for a year or so and have a question Id like to pose.What would you,as a fisherman rather see on this site,Info on a spot to catch fish or tips and technics to help you catch fish?Ive always been one to soak up as much info on fishing methods as possible.I dont pay much attention to hot bite info as this really doesnt help in the learning curve.Just curious how many people just want to know where where they are biting now.

I like to see both. I like trying new spots out.

I also like to share and learn new techiques. I have learned a ton from guys on here as far as new techs go. Until a few years ago I had never trolled a crawler harness on a board before and now its one of my favorite methods.

I like both as well. Techniques are great to hear when you are kinda new to boat fishing. But since I moved from out of state, it's nice to get a general area or lake name to find some fish. Don't need the exact location, but just finding a few fun lakes to fish is always nice.

Smannd..yes what you and northlander have said makes sense.Like you guys I dont mind hearing about stuff like,perch are going good on lake x on the rocks.This kind of info is general and most people can go out and figure out the how to contact these fish.That to me is the fun part of fishing.However it seems to me that alot of folks just want to hear,go to lake x and fish 10ft deep on the third rock bar west of the launch use this color jig and tip it with this kind of bait.I suppose some people like that kind of info but to me it didnt teach me anything,its not always about bringing home a limit of fish.I try and learn something from each outing and sometimes I learn about being skunked frown.gif but thats ok I still have fun.

I definitly like/appreciate reading everyones techniques. But, on another token, I have a wife that works, and goes to school full time on opposite hours as my work week, and we have an 18 month little bambino thats not quite ready for ishin(his lingo). Nedless to say, when I have only 2 hours to dip a line, spots are nice to hear about. Of course

I understand how it feels when you find that certain honey hole, and you show up one day to find your honey with 12 guys fishing her. blush.gif

I would like to see a blog fourm. There are a lots of people on FM that I would like to hear about their fishing and other outdoor outings. It would be nice to read expanded viewpoints.

Yes I agree with the learning every thing a person can learn about what any are going after, and there is a great deal of info on this web sight, I wouldnt limit how much you can learn here.

Like this little trick my grandpa used to do, he would take egg shells and wrap a bunch in cheese cloth, he'd put a pretty good sized weight in the bottom, dont forget the wieght. then we would go to the deep flat, he'd drill a hole and drop his wieghted egg shells to the bottom, drill a couple more holes close by, and we almost allways had fish. shocked.gif

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
