Default Going Fishing

Thanks to Yoops for making me feel like a lazy idiot for not fishing in YEARS

I'm going fishing today...a buddy is about to pick me up.

We're going here where I also might have a swim:

Cull Canyon Regional Recreation Area | East Bay Regional Park District

Probably not the best spot, but pretty close to home. I'm just gonna go for panfish...don't care how small they are. Hopefully tonight, I'll have a bunch of breaded blue-gills with lemon

You're welcome, lazy idiot!

Have fun! Hopefully you'll catch some. If not, there's always next time!

Confession time.

Bean asked to go fishing a few weeks ago. Now, I haven't been fishing in YEARS. There was a little creek near the house where I grew up; my brother caught a couple trout in it, but *I've never caught a fish in my life!* Now, the old owners of the house left a ton of fishing equipment behind in the barn, but how do I tell my little girl, "Daddy doesn't really know much about fishing!"

You drop some bait in the water and tug when you feel something. That's all you gotta tell her. DON'T LET GO!

Hopefully, you can find a Stop 'n Save on the way home then. I hear that Mrs. Paul makes some nice fish sticks!

Bird, fishing is easy. Oh, sure, there are techniques to improve your sucess. But the simplest way- sticking a nightcrawler on a hook and tossing it in the water- works great. I have little kids standing on my dock all the time. They almost always catch something. The hardest part is getting the fish off the hook. Usually, noobies don't set the hook fast enough (especially kids) so the fish will swallow the hook. If you carefully remove the hook with needle nosed pliers, you won't harm the fish and you can release it (sometimes they're pretty small!).

Also, you might not know this, but sunfish have very sharp dorsal fins, with little spikes on them. If you know how to hold them, it's no problem but you may want to wear gloves on your fishing "trip", Bird. They can literally slice your palm open when you try to remove the hook. Bass and trout don't have sharp fins or teeth (or teeth like we think of them) so you don't have to worry about anything when you catch them.

Funny that this should come up now. I was just thinking about hitting a stream soon to do some fly fishing this summer.

I would like to take my canoe up to the Manistee River this summer and spend a day or two on the river doing some fishing.

I used to fish all the time. Grew up (mostly) on Vancouver Isladn. River/lake fishing but the big stuff was always in the chuck.

Moving to apartment life in the bigger cities reall killed my brewing and fishing. I've got the brewing going full swing but I have fished once in 4 years.

That's it. I'm buying a licence and some gear real soon! (I have rods but tackle has disapeared).

I need to find out the rules and stuff about licensing, and inventory the stuff that we've got in the garage. I suspect Bean's still a little too... well, she's too much of a four-year old to have the patience for fishing right now! "Ooh, a worm. Oh, a boat - a DUCKIE! YEAH, DUCKIE! Daddy, can I have a juice box? DUCK!"
