    Been years since I've gone fishin.... but around here, we have the Susquehanna River. A wide river and when the water is low, its moves slowly. It's a great river to wade in. I miss fishing. The deeper spots nearest the slower moving areas, you can catch Walleye.

    ^ I go down to the susquehanna about 30 miles north of harrisburg every year in early spring. It's on of the best small mouth fisheries in the country. This past year we pulled between 40-50 in the boat in a day and the biggest we pulled was a little over 5lbs. Anyone who knows about fishing understands what a fight a 5 lb smallie puts up. If you're interested contact ed @ potomac guide services. Best guided trip i've ever been on.

    Now I'm missing Florida.thanks... the whole time we were there the Clermont chain was great, start at any launch and meander through the canals...(did catch a few bridges:rolleyes::rolleyes:....) and move onto the next lake.....

    Butler Chain was better BUT needed permission to even lauch there......

    It always helps when your neighbor "Guides" for a living...you get to go out with him trying to find this weeks "Honey spots" :cool::cool:....fishing 2-3 times a week,SWEET;)..

    I go fishin once or twice a week and I love smaller lakes that don't get a lot of fishing pressure. Ponds are good too cause they usally have no one fishing them. If you're in an area with a lot of pressure for a small lake (like where I live), large lates are where its at.

    The bigger lakes around here get a lot of pressure. The local B.A.S.S. chapter runs tourneys on them almost every weekend. You can't even get near the ramp. I stay away from those lakes even during the week. I've found a few small lakes that seem to get ignored by the "wanna be pro's" with $75,000 boats that can go 75MPH. By the way, they are usually being towed by big Dodge Rams. When I go out on the lake it's to relax and have a little fun. Those tournament guys seem a little too high strung for me.

    I love the old private little farm ponds and mill ponds. They usually get little pressure and have been there a long time. I live on a mill pond that has been around since the 1700s so needless to say theres some monster bass in it.....

    When I was younger I used to fish out of a pond like that. It was on a farm that backed up to my subdivision, we would jump the fence and fish all day. You could cast from one side to the other. It had a very shallow weed bed in one corner of it. You could actually see all the fish on a sunny day. There was one 5#er in there. I caught him a few times. Usually a super salty pumpkin chartruese worm in the weedbed would land you a bass almost every time. We also used to catch bream/bluegill then hook them and throw them back out as bait for the bass. The bass would hit those all the time. Used to take an extra rod and throw some chicken livers out there to catch the catfish in the deep part.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Sounds about right.
