    I like lakes a lot. I have some friends with overstocked small ponds, and you can land a bass on every cast in them, but I prefer a challenge most of the time. I also don't ever seem to have much luck bass fishing. =/

    A slow moving creek in the Smoky Mountains. During the spring I fish it at least 3 times a week. Never see anybody else there. Average smallmouth is probably 2 pounds or so. You'll catch the occasional walleye or rainbow trout as well.

    I'll fish any size lake as long as I can find some flooded timber for largemouth and rocky points for smallmouth.

    I guided float trips on the Gunnison in western colorado in college, now I fish four to five days a week on the James and in small ponds around the area when the weather is nice, fish for Striper in the bay when its not. its all sick but fishing a mouse pattern on a beaver pond for some 4 lb brookie at 13,000 ft under the full moon has to take it for me.

    i don't know how to cast a spinning rod. I even troll with flyrods, this girl was in a little cow field pond, there were three other "bass fisherman" laughing at the flyrod, untill I caught this and three others like it. I haven't been invited back since. Yellow popper stripped to make as much commotion as possibe. Namyo hit me up lets fish.

    I fish small ponds and small lakes, both out of a kayak. You can really get to the best spots with the kayak. I had the best year of bass fishing ever last year. I went a whole lot more often and my fishing partner, 2 year old daughter loved it to...... she had lots of fun reeling the fish in. I must have caught something like 300 to 400 lb of bass this year. I hope that doesn't sound like a fish tail but it was truly amazing year. I wonder what next years best lure will be........ since now the lakes have 2 feet of ice.........

    I wanna go striper fishing in a kayak at the bay tunnel but I'm kinda scared, my boss was out there fishing on a 27ft cuddy when a navy sub came cruisin up the river. he said someone came on the loud speaker telling them to stay right where they were, then half a submerged sub speeds by and hits them with a 9ft wall of water. He said they almost got real wet.
    I fish out of my canoe on the James 10 minutes from my house but the only thing scary there is the turtles, saw a 4x last summer, would have filled up the entire bed of my truck!!! He was in a grass run about 3 ft a water going after the same fish we were. We paddled back up to him, and my buddy tapped him with his paddle, and this four foot wide turtle spun around in less than a second just by angling his feet against the current. He was probably 140 years old. I don't booze tube on the james anymore.
