    What kind of fish bait do you all use?

    What kind of fish are you after?


    I've knocked em dead using live crickets and a bobber about 3' leader - Brown's Brook's and Rainbow's love em.
    Sometimes a weight and threading a worm on a hook then puffing him up full of air so it'll float off the bottom, or even use marshmellows.
    I like fishing with flies that i've tied myself on streams for trout. Either with a bobber, or on my fly rod. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Artifical lures that i've had good luck with:
    Recently a 3lb. 22" bass on a rooster tail spinner /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif !
    I've always done good with Spoons like krockadiles, and daredevile's which are hard to get now. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
    Even downrigging with those are good.

    I've found if you're after planter rainbows they like yellow powerbait... We caught some right after a place was planted and when we gutted them we found yellow pellets the fish hatchery would feed them... So yellow powerbait was the trick. The dumb ones would go for other colors also. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    for redfish i either use live mullet or cut bait. or i'll not be a lazy fisherman and go wading with spoons, poopers, and mirro lure. great for redfish. for speckled trout i use live shrimp on the bottom freeline or a cork with about 3 feet of leader. if i don't use bait i'll use various soft lures. for shark i'll use cut up whiting, croakers, anything with alot of blood. gulf of mexico is full of great fish to go for. now i wanna go fishing. lol. later.

Anyone see the "King Of The Hill" episode where Hank got arrested for dope ??? He was using crack-cocaine for fish bate. Made me wonder how it'd work./forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif ............... Anyone ever been pond fishin' with a old crank phone ??? Drop the wires in the water and start cranking the handle, it really does work !!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Idaho ain't it?

    When I was a kid, it was all about the fishing. Sometimes after school, we'd head to the lake (30 miles) for awhile. Catfish and Bass. For the catfish, it was all about what size we were going for. Sometimes stink bait, minnows, or perch that we catch and cut up. I never was big on catching catfish, they don't have any fight in them, but dang they are great eating.

    Never was big on bass, but my biggest catch was a striper on Lake Powell right up against the dam (oh the olden days). Speaking of Lake Powell, I've gotten to fish on both sides of the dam. The Colorado River at this point, refered to as Lee's Ferry (named after John Lee who was a Mormon who was involved in the Mountain Meadows massacre, lots of history around the place). Sports Afield called this place one of the hot spots back in '82, preceded to wreck the fishing. When I began fishing here, there was some regulations, but not too bad. I never did any good here. A lot of skill is needed here cause fishing off the bank sucks and if your out on a boat, besides the fishing, you've got a boat going at speed down the river and you don't want to flip, the water runs about 54 degrees in the summer time.

    The Gunnison, Colorado Area. We always used corn and salmon eggs on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison and the Gunnison River itself. We very rarely hit Blue Mesa lake, but we sometimes ran up to Monarch Pass, and Big Blue; a bunch of beaver ponds.

    My dad has a place up in the mountains of New Mexico, sits on Eagle Nest lake. Last time I fished was here back in '98. fishing was horrible. There's some rivers around, but really want to hit Goose Lake, which I talked about in a previous post.

    I only consider myself in it for trout these days. I love chowing on some rainbow, but brown trout tastes better.

    Trout, I feel pound for pound out of all the fish I've caught puts up the best fight, plus the mature ones you have to work at snagging them.

    I fish for largemouth bass, I usually use a Rebel lure bumblebug(topwater bumblebee), a Grasshopper lure(topwater) or a chugbug popper. I have also had good luck with a Rapala rattle trap.

    Paul, Yes it does work, it is called telephoning and if caught here in Oklahoma it costs you your truck and all your fishing equipment. But a .44 mag has the same affect, /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif fire it in to the water at close range and all the fish float to the top stunned, pick what you want and the rest recover and swim off. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What the heck is it called again, what those backwoods boys in downstate OK do? Where they stick their hand down into the water and catch those huge catfish by sticking their arm down the catfish itself?

    Bubba,
    It's called noodleing, I have seen some guys pull some big a$$ catfish up that way. Not me, I am not real hot on the idea of sticking my hand in the mouth of a fish to be bitten. Plus I have seen some monster water mocassins(cottonmouth) around here too, hole and a 50/50 shot of fish or snake. Nope count me out.

    I use hot dogs. Put about 3oz. of weight right near the hook on some Spiderwire, open the reel and let that sucker fly about 50 yards out into the lake. Let sit. Tie pole to boat with favorite rope. When said pole bends in half, you just might have something.

    That's it. I have the same qualms as you do, but the part of OK I'm from, people don't have to worry about water moccasins. Most people are just content with throwing a line in the water.
