I am a very simple fisherman thanks to my Dad - mostly lunkers, cod, channel cats, the occasional bass. Back in the day I was all about the walleyes (what are sometimes called sticklebacks), and boy will they put up a fight. Itty bitty fish and he thinks he weighs twenty pounds, lol. They're the Jack Russels of the fish world.

Stinkbaits are always fun, they cause quite a ruckus in summer. Crickets, nightcrawlers, red wigglers, and the occasional shiner if I'm feeling adventurous. I don't have much luck with artificials because mostly I'm dragging the bottom and using finger-taps to feel the floor and tempt the sleepers. Artificials tend to get stuck on tree limbs and behind rocks and next thing you know, I'm rigging a new set on the end of my line. I use split shot almost exclusively to make sure I'm not dragging too hard, but if I'm going deep then I'll use a dipsey or a pyramid.

Local lakes will occasionally offer up gar, too, but I find that they hang out near turtles a lot and if you're going after one, you'd better make sure the snapper underneath him doesn't grab your bait first! Kerr Lake up near the Virginia border can sometimes provide HUGE catfish near the dam.

3rd place overall at St Clair last week. This is our 1st day catch. Ran 38 miles for these guys. My wife caught a 5.49 smallie the second day. We'll be going to nationals at Guntersville AL. in the spring. :)

Looks like they belong on Tindr. Maybe they're setting up a hot fly fishing date...

Taking all my boys and grandkids deep sea fishing was at the top of my bucket list. Should have seen the look on their faces when they hooked onto a big ass grouper or red snapper priceless didnt stop smiling all day

Not to bang on the grouper, but those red snappers are bulldogs on the hook. Straight up pissed off all the way to the boat, love them! Florida eased restrictions on them recently, we used to have to grill them outside the fence and then come back to port.
