gold is an excellent color
I broke my gold xr12 haven't gotten around to replacing them in a while, feels like a few years. since before covid.
actually gold xr12 and sxr14 in gold both bought the farm. One of the two of them it was just the bill. The other one (I think it was the xr14?) actually broke in half.
Despite those losses, and price increases, and a few other losses of typically the same problems: weight transfer stops working or bill breaks or plastic body cracks, I'm still a fan.
I'm looking forward to rapala mavik jerkbait. It's a proper gold. Also metallic perch and hot perch look great.
I also really like subwalk 09 in gold, when the grass is tall in August for pike and smallies

I think you have to learn when to let something go too.

I know a guy who dives all the time and spearfishes and he was out there for lobster one day and he was grabbing the lobster off his little pokin stick and a goliath grouper popped out of a hole and decided he wanted the lobster too. So the big ass grouper grabs the lobster and half his arm and he’s trying to fight the fish for a few seconds until he realizes he’s on a wild ride around the reef, and then finally decides to let go of the lobster and slip his hand out and gtfo.
>>
>>2646827
Dope.

Where are you at?

I remember one anon from Malaysia or something who was always impressed by our invasive FL sneks. I think they had the same species wherever he was, but it was rare to catch anything above like 12” because everybody targets them to eat.

Also invasive species also get larger than they do in their native places because easy meals and less predators.

>>2646965
Fenwick Eagle, any Abu Garcia that’s within your budget, some Daiwa and Lew’s rods probably. If you see a Bass Pro Johnny Morris rod on sale, those are nice for the money. The Ugly Stik is a meme because it’s floppy ass fiberglass and that’s sort of old tech but good for kids who will bend it around in tree branches or jam it into the ground and it won’t break. Pretty much any other $40+ rod is going to be some graphite composite blank that will have a good strong backbone and sensitive tip and they’re easier to flick lures while casting and better for getting the right action on the lure.

Look for something 6’6”-7’-3” that is medium weight with fast action.

i bought some random jigs on amazon and got the first one snagged good within 5 minutes
i walked back and forth trying to free it with no luck, and when i finally gave up and went to rip it out, i was surprised when the jig came back up
one of the assist hooks had tore free of the fabric they used to tie them
at least i got to keep the jig but now i know i should replace all the assist hooks because they are complete shit, i didn't even pull that hard
it was only 20lb leader, and a 40g jig so not like it was mismatched

Chatterbait has been pretty consistent for me with a slowish retrieve around ledges. The jig bite has been 50/50 seems better at night. Lizards are still doing good. I honestly don't understand why more people don't throw lizards. They emulate salamanders and those eat bass eggs.

Chang Mei, Thailand. Thanks for telling me about that invasive species and growth thing. The first thing I saw when I drove back home from my fishing trip, I saw some IG thot holding a ~13 pound snakehead from FL and I immediately lost any joy I received from catching my Toman.

Yeah I was looking at official snakehead records and there’s definitely far bigger ones in the canals than has been recorded. I still swear to this day I hooked this 40”+ one that a guy who lives on the same lake caught and released. I would think it was a gator if it didn’t pull drag exactly like a 25” snakehead but way larger.

I find Tilapia to be decent enough for eating, Not as nice as bluegill and Crappie, never mind walleye or seabass, but better than largemouth or bullheads or carp. People eat tilapia because it's cheap and it's cheap because they're easy to raise in aquaculture, not because they're bad.

Nearly everything that's invasive IS delicious. The reason is that people introduced the fish because they enjoyed eating it. People who say otherwise are fucking morons.

Carp taste so good they invented mirror carp.
>>
>>2648750
>pigs aren’t tasty
Feral hogs are inedible because people tend to gut shoot them on the run in hot weather. Unless a feral hog is living at the dump (this does happen, and eating at the dump renders all shortgut game animals inedible), if you shoot it cleanly and dress it properly so you can chill it quick, it’ll be fine eating.

The problem is the attitude that people have about destructive invasives (and this extends to carp). They assign moral value to their existence and treat them poorly as a consequence, and then let the consequences of that poor treatment reinforce their moral low value.
And I’m not saying that they don’t need to be exterminated, because they do, but you’re not going to exterminate them by rolling in and killing half a sounder with poorly aimed rapid fire, so if you want to shoot hogs, why not shoot them in a way that preserves their value as meat?

Traps and exclusion barriers and elimination of refuge spaces is how you exterminate an invasive.

Wild hogs/feral pigs with some wild boar genetics, where they are rampant in the US south, have a reputation for carrying disease and being inedible above 50 lbs if male. They do carry a number of diseases that are functionally extinct in US domestic pork (brucellosis, etc), but someone educated to the precautions needed, who follows them, will have no problems, and the inedibility issue is a combination of delicate “chicken tendies” mass American palates and poor treatment of the hog as a meat animal due to the unconscious biases of the majority of people who hunt them.
It’s bad enough I’ve had IRL Texan “outdoorsmen” tell me that if you want to eat a wild hog, the only thing to do is shoot piglets or live trap them, neuter and worm them, and feed them corn in confinement for 6 months.

I’ve shot around a dozen over the last 5 years, and they were fine table fare (except the first three, which I fucked up by hunting in the manner that the locals hunt them, IE shooting several running pigs out of a spooked sounder). You just need to not treat meat like trash just because you’ve been told the animal is evil. After all, the locals have been using tannerite and machine guns to hunt them for 20 years and all they’ve done is create very cautious pigs. The problem is only getting worse because the people in charge of trying to manage the problem operate with their arms tied behind their back, and every township has a dipshit or 5 who creates pig sanctuary by being a belligerent about their property rights or who releases pigs in order to hunt them later. Of the dozen I’ve killed, the 4 largest had the characteristic poorly fused snout of an animal that reached maturity on a grain diet fed into a pan instead of rooting through dirt for tubers and insects like a wild pig. This isn’t a genetic feature, it’s developmental and entirely diagnostic of a dipshit making the feral hog problem in the area worse on purpose.

you should use a smaller net
it would make the fish appear bigger

If I can see a bunch of minnows that basically means I shouldn't cast there right?
My thought process is that if there is something there big enough to be worth catching it would be eating them and scaring them away

Even modestly sized musky are wild AF. You get to Minnesota in October and I’ll get you out where a 54 incher is possible. As far as fresh water goes, Musky are as close to a good saltwater fight as it gets.

>Musky are as close to a good saltwater fight as it gets.
Migratory stripers
>>
>>2649046
King salmon, sturgeon, stripers and mekong catfish are pound for pound stronger than a musky.

I'd say mekong's are #1. I've caught several chinooks in the 50 to 70 pound range when I lived in Alaska, and my 40 pound mekongs fought a lot harder. Chinooks were my #1 for freshwater for awhile, not anymore. Musky and striper don't beat a chinook.
>>
>>2649064
stripers are fun but as pelagics you can't always easily target them, at least from shore like i am
i just want something i can harvest and eat and regulations continue to get more strict
>>
>>2649069
Fuck I hear you. I fish in a lake for them (freshwater ones) and I can't even get them from shore. I hate it.

Ironically my striper friends who catch 20+ pounders frequently tell me striper fishing is easier than bass fishing. I disagree with them big time on that one, because I can't get a 15+ pounder to save my life LOL.

Btw to musky fishermen, I'm not saying musky are weak, far from it, they're in the top 10 strongest freshwater fish FOR SURE.
>>
>>2649070
i forget that there are freshwater places that stock stripers
i'm in massachusetts but a good hour drive from any saltwater, and it sucks to drive that far and not find them
anyone around here that fishes seriously but recreationally has a boat, because shore fishing is incredibly hit or miss, mostly miss
>>
>>2649064
As anadromous fish, I’d usually exclude king salmon and stripers (and the real pound for pound champions, steelhead) from the “freshwater” category, but I’ve caught 40 lb strippers in the Potomac and 40 lb musky in Minnesota lakes and I would say the musky were better fights. Although I will say that the stripers do hit harder initially.
I cannot speak to Mekong Catfish, but the only catfish I’ve caught which have pulled as much drag as a 40 lb musky have been flatheads and blues that were in the 70lb range.
Large sturgeon are also in the running for “hardest fighting freshwater”, but I still find muskelunge to be the most thrilling freshwater species I can target without flying across the world.

When drop-shotting with soft plastics, do you typically use a Palomar knot or would something like a surgeons loop offer more movement for the lure as it's slightly disconnected from the mainline?
Similar question if you're soaking bait, which one would you typically use?

With a drop shot typically it’s about a very subtle presentation with minimal movement. Using a surgeons loop will allow for extra action but may not work as well on pressured fish. Try both and see what works better for you on a given day

Did you bleed it immediately? IMMEDIATELY after catching a salmon or trout or anything in that family cut the gills and bleed it out thoroughly and the meat won't have such a strong low tide flavor.

Oh definitely once they're all kype jawed and humped up they're pretty bad eating unless you're smoking them and even then it's not 100%. Over here on the west coast in the columbia river they call the early in and ready to spawn salmon "tules" and they're horrible for food, not worth keeping.

Bluegill. Get the following
>#8 aberdeen hook
>small assortment of split shot
>small bombers
>bait (worms, waxies, maggots, grasshoppers, minnows)
Tie the hook on, put a split shot 6-10 inches up, then a float 12-24 inches up, and cast at weed edges, docks, trees, or any other cover. If your bait sits more than 2 minutes without a bite, cast somewhere else. Sometimes moving your bait 10 feet and sometimes even less is what gets you bit.

Anyone had any experience with these?

I already own a rebel 100xp. Which is fine, but at the same time I'd like to have something with a bit more wiggle room. Also something more stable.

Main thing I see needing done to this thing is a scupper hole, which looks easy enough to mod with no issues if you go apeshit with marine sealant. Tarps are easy to get, too and a floormat is easy to make.

I also thought about just saying fuck it and getting a jonboat, but I like the idea of not needing a trailer for the pelican.

If you stick with a basic boat and a common outboard, and the trailer isn't broken, it's hard to go wrong.

Are crappie hard to catch? Any tips for finding them?
>>
>>2650153
Crappies are one of those fish that are east to catch, if you can find them, but that have wildly variable location preference depending on time of day, time of year and conditions.
I’m on them hot right now, I can catch a limit in an hour at will. They are currently in 24 feet of water, right on the bottom, and respond well to a minnow on a ball jig tossed out about 30 feet from the boat and slowly jogged across the bottom. Ned rig if fishing artificials.

Of course, if you’re not on my lake, you might not find them where I’m finding them, I can’t give you accurate advice for your area, because your lake and you conditions are not the same as mine.

Is that Oceanside harbor beach? I grew up fishing all around that whole area.
I've eaten plenty of perch, these are my two favorite ways to eat them
1) filet, scale but don't skin your catch. Get some olive oil hot in a pan, add salt, pepper and any other seasoning you like. Fry fillets skin side down for about 2 minutes, flip and repeat. Slide those bitches on a sandwich with sauteed onions, tomatoes and garlic (if you didn't already use it in the fry). Add olives and oregano for extra Mediterranean flavor.
2) cut potatoes and carrots into 1-inch pieces, place on some lightly oiled aluminum foil. Add salt and thyme to the mix, place the foil wrap on a hot grill for about 10 minutes. Add your fish, extra salt and thyme, let cook for another 10 and enjoy

It's easy enough to setup and takedown, takes about 5-10 minutes for both, but I'm just not used to fishing from the kayak. I also thought I'd be stable enough to stand up and take a piss but ended up overboard and going for a swim. I've thought about buying one of those castable sonars to just drop in the water next to me since I don't know how to mount a proper sonar on an inflatable. Mainly casting larger flies towards structure I see around the shore right now. Good luck, friend.

Perch are so gross. I don't get how people eat them. They have this weird...like chemical taste to them. Rubberlip perch was the most edible one I've had. But it's probably because they are rock oriented rather than eating beach worms and mole crabs all day.

Just caught and fried up some crappie yesterday! Cover and Coves. That's the best advice. Find where the water current changes or slows down. Coves or little natural bays foliage "lakes" where there's a kind of separate area of water separated by foliage. Fish the shore where there's logs in the water, fallen trees, stumps, anything like that. Fish a hand tied maribou jig, a bobby garland, or a white twisty tail all 1/16oz. Just retrieve real slow about a foot under the surface and keep dropping the depth and changing the location until you find them. But once you find them, you'll find a hundred of them. Good luck anon!

if you have grass that dews get the worms out of your yard. but I have the most success with worms or crawdads. Get yourself a minnow trap. cut the holes out to about 1 1/2"-2" diameter and put bread or fish heads/meat grizzle. Check every 2 days. If you get a little crawdad, leave him in there and toss him back, tomorrow you'll have a bigger one.
>>
>>2650642
>>2650757
oh almost forgot. if you try bait in your minnow trap and you dont catch shit, put it out with nothing in it. Sometimes bait attracts catfish or carp and will scare away the minnows and crawdads that you're trying to catch. But if you throw it out empty, those minnows and crawdads will take cover in the cage to hide from predators. Some weeks of the year I get exceedingly more bait out of an empty trap, than one with bait in it

got another bass with a turtle bite on his belly. third one so far. all out of the same 20 square yard area of water right by shallow water and a fallen tree. what I'm sure is happening is the bass are suspending in the shallow water over where a submerged and buried snapping turtle is waiting, and when he smells them he's taking a very enthusiastic bite upwards.

I now know what cuckoldry and erectile dysfunction feel like. I went to a new spot, and there was crazy topwater action. Sizable fish, including at least one monster, were surfacing, and I'm pretty sure they weren't carp but bass. I tried fishing topwater and jigs but couldn't get them to bite. I was fishing on a derelict bridge, and I casted my whopper plopper into one of the supports, damaging it. I'm definitely going to be back, maybe tomorrow. As soon as I can, just in case, I'm going to get some carp gear. There are some carp I want to catch elsewhere anyway.

Yeah, I already own one. I decided against it because if I want to have the same sort of set up, I have a kayak already that does the job.

Admittedly I have the itch to just be able to stretch around and relax, and I might be looking at a grizzly jonboat instead.

Really? Different anon here. I got to thinking recently that the fried perch I enjoyed on my trips to Wisconsin were not yellow. As a child, I was forced to eat salmon, tuna steaks, Mahi Mahi, swordfish, shark, etc., and I hated them all. When I got old enough to make my own choices, I put my foot down and refused to eat any fish, unless the occasion allowed for perch. My tolerance for fish has increased slightly, and now that I have become an angler, I would really like to eat that fish I loved so much.

Why fish the pier vs the surf?

>>2650992
I catch more mackerel on the pier

Tomorrow is the day I try out my kayak bros. I'll probably just take it out and paddle around once before I try to figure out how I'll attach my poles.

The biggest disadvantage of a tinny is that the people with faster boats can hit the spots before you can. I doubt you’ll catch flack unless you’re doing a big money tourney full of sponsored douchebags.

Minorities will keep everything regardless of size or species. Many are unaware such laws even exist.

Piers are a lot easier to fish effectively. The good ones have bathrooms, a tackle shop, and a bar. They get crowded with retards during tourist season so when that happens the surf is a much better option.

Caught 3 really nice zander today, but phone battery was too low to use flash for the biggest
Was a good 1/3rd bigger than this guy and my pb. Must have been at least 80 cm and heavy as shit.

Just started fishing with hardbaits as well, and having so much more success than with jigging soft plastics, haven't blanked once in 5 days fishing since switching.

why not snitch or smack? Instead you post about it on an anonymous imageboard like a weasel? You're no better

if you can get them out of a cold, deep body of water that isn't polluted they're great
i caught a bunch recently at a local pond that gets stocked with trout, i wanted trout but there were small young fish everywhere
they were almost too small to bother with, like 4 or 5 inches, but i took the time to fillet and pan fry them, they were great but i also ate them after being out in the summer heat fishing all day and everything tastes better when you're tired

i talked to a cute game warden today

What's the must have bait in every spinning gear?
>>
>>2651322
Inline spinners, probably. Maybe lipless crankbaits or ned style jigs too.
>>
>>2651322
the exact same shit you carry with baitcasting gear

I think an EWG hook and a senko will catch bass whether you do a drop shot, weightless T rig, wacky worm, etc

>>2651382
This is really not correct though

help me understand shock leaders
>are they worth it?
>should they be long enough to actually wind in the reel?
>if so, then wouldn't knot between the leader and the main line slow down the cast when it tries to get free from the reel?
>should i also use a another tackle leader after the shock leader?
I live in a coastal mediteranean city with no lakes or rivers so i mostly fish from the beach, but haven't had much luck with my 4.2 meter, 100-250 gram telescoping surf rod. I was thinking of changing to a 3 meter two piece 10-50 gram rod instead.
what would you recommend?
picrel for your troubles
