    All of my fishing is fun fishing...... Haven't fished a tournament in 20 years, no desire to.... Ponds, creeks, lakes.... it's all fun. About to start a week from Saturday, lol.

  4. The part that sucked most about my buddies I getting into baitcasting reels and bass fishing was it seemed they all became too good I guess, for lack of better description, to catfish like we used to. Heck convincing most of them to go bluegill fishing was next to impossible. If it wasn’t bass fishing the only thing most of my lifelong fishing friends would do was spider-rigging for crappie. If I’m honest fishing for gills under a bobber during the spawn or when the willowflies are hatching are my favorite ways to fish. I also love bank fishing for catfish on the lake or stocked ponds. Too bad none of that is sexy enough for advanced anglers.

    Same here. Just wish there were more places to bank fish near me for days when you just don't feel like hauling the boat to the lake.

    For me least fun is tournament & paylake fishing. Everything else is relaxing and fun. Not much better than a blackhorse sucker falling for a stink worm peeling drag from a zebco 33 when the Redbuds are in bloom on the Licking river. Better yet if the creek will allow. Fish gig ,feed sack, coleman lantern, blue jeans and old tennis shoes. Wading a KY riffle for redhorse suckers.

    Someone caught a smallmouth at the falls this week. I’ve heard of people even catching trout there

    Limb lines for catfish. Set em at about sunset and just ease up and down the river all night. Every bouncing branch feels like Christmas morning. It's alot like work on a good night tho.

    I've caught smallmouth there before, never caught a trout there but I did catch a mess of crappie once to go along with my stringer of sauger.
