Hey all. Wondered how many guys here enjoy fishing and wanted to share some fish stories. My favorite is included in my new outdoors column:

My favorite fishing story is as a freshman in high school me and my cousin came upon a group of skinny dipping seniors...all female.

Great memory for me!

But I don't think that's what you had in mind. Great write up! ;-D Kudo's to you for helping others in this sad little world we live in.

Since my recent move to South Florida I've fished almost every day. Mostly it's for Bass in the lake right out back or the lake near my Mom's place. I didn't think there were any decent sized fish in the lake until the other day when I landed a 5 lb Largemouth (estimate weight) on a blue and silver Rattle-Trap using a medium rod with 10lb Power Pro. It was my first big bass in my new home. :-)

Today I'm going on a boat to do some reef fishing for Grouper and Snappers. Hopefully I bring home some dinner.

Back when I was in PA in high school I went fishing all the time, usually to the Wiconisco. Then I went to college at Lock Haven and completely fell out of it. Now that I'm in VA I'm thinking about picking it up again.

I love getting into the stream with my Neoprenes and feeling the creek run by you. I don't really have any major stories but one time I was battling a Rainbow and stepped into a hole in the creekbed up to my chest. Talk about cold, the water just poured into my suit but I managed to hang on and reel the fish in.

mY favorite fish story...ok my only fish story.

My father thought it would be a good bonding experience to take me and my brothers out on a boat and go fishing out in the ocean. Well me and my brothers are city folk plain and simple. My brother and I spent the whole day puking off the side of the boat. I caught 1 fish, and then puked some more.

I have officially retired from fishing.

When I was a wee tyke, 4 or 5, my Dad had taken me fishing, basically around the pier or on the rocks surrounding the harbor. Never had gone back fishing until about a 5 years ago, when I was in England. My uncle's house was within walking distance of a forest and once you've walked a 1/2 mile through the forest trail, there's a huge plain sloping down to a lake an additional 1/2 mile down. Caught a few fish. Forgot what they were (supposedly trout) because I spent most of it downing some local English beer. I was really wasted and woke up with a huge hangover. From what I remember, I got drunk until I puked in the lake and my uncle thought it was a good time to go home. Never went fishing again since then. !+)

I love deep see fishing.

Catching a barracuda and some mahi were always fun.

We used to go in the Chesapeake and catch blue Fish with fake eels

I guess my best story was out on the 20 foot speed boat. Barely sea worthy.

We were in the Gulf Stream probably 40 miles out

The radio died a storm was coming up and our fishing line was wrapped around the propeller.

My dad (Not his boat by the way) jumped in the water (Infested with lots of big fish) and went under the boat to untie the propeller.

it was pretty crazy
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
