Jigging for big flounder on ocean shipwrecks/structure in deep water. 70-110 ft. Fairly light tackle, Daiwa Lexa 300 on a Tsunami MH jigging rod. 30 lb braid. 3-6 oz bucktails, depending on current. Drifting, bouncing the jig over the bottom until you feel him grab it. Set the hook and hold on, head shakes galore. Man that’s fun!

Also catching Mahi on pot gear with light tackle is fun. 15-20 miles off the coast. Stick baits, topwater, or chunks on a bare hook. Get some gaffers doing this too, but mostly 5-10 lb mahi.

Chunking for tuna, casting for speckled trout with artificials, redfish on spinnerbaits. Striped bass/rockfish. These coastal bays and inshore ocean have a lot to offer to the avid angler!

Going tomorrow for Mahi, I’ll post pics.

By the way, we charter too. Bad Wind Charters.

Smallmouth for the sheer joy of the fight. Pike and big perch in that order for the table. Slob bluegills for the hunt. The St Lawrence River is my favorite fishery.

For fun; cutthroat trout in small creeks.
For eating; halibut in water less than 120 deep.

I really enjoy bass fishing in the summer where there’s chance of fish over 6lbs. Once things freeze, perch and walleye are tough to beat

I was a very avid largemouth bass fisherman in the 70s and 80s. I was good too. Marriage and kids changed that and I sold my bass boat. Now I am in my 70s and I miss it, but I would rather catch panfish on a flyrod than baitcast for largemouth.

Backpacking into high lakes to fly fish for cutthroats is always a blast. It’s how I like to fill my weekends during the summer.

I enjoy large mouth bass on top water from a kayak. It never gets old.

Fishing is for the weak-minded and otherwise feeble.
I go catching. smile
But then again, there is a fine line between fishing, and standing on the river bank like an idiot. (Normally I would take the time to apologize, with all due respect, to the idiots, weak-minded, and otherwise feeble, but they won't know either way. (The feeble might, so, I hereby offer my apologies to the otherwise feeble.)

I notice no one said trolling crankbaits with trolling rods and planer boards for walleye. Only thing a lot of people wanna do around here and it is BORING. Favorite depends on weather and time of year.

Slip bobber fishing for almost almost anything, anytime, especially when the water is kind of clear and you can see it going sideways three feet deep.

Jigging for light biting perch late summer.

All-nighter on a river for catfish during the dog days. Waking up to a bait clicker screaming is a rush.

Spring ice-out walleye and catfish below a dam on a river.

Feeling that very light “thump” from casting a beetle spin for crappie in the early fall.

And one thing I am going to spend more time trying to figure out with the jet prop, finding walleye on the small rivers well into fall. Flannel shirt weather. Middle of no where, awesome colors and the only sound is a combine somewhere.

Fishing jetty's and rock walls at night, preferably midnight to dawn, w/ eels... for stripers (rock). Headlight, rain gear, and cleats are a necessity.[Linked Image]

Fishing for big Lake sturgeon in the James Bay watershed rivers.
No other freshwater fish fights like a sturgeon.
