    I know we usually have a fishing discussion every year. I seen one for ice fishing, we don't know anything about that in the south though.

    I finally got my first hog of the year this morning. It's hard to beat oklahomas bass fishing. Let's see your pics!

    She put up a heck of a fight especially on a spinning set up.

    It's been a little warmer here in Ohio so I couldn't help myself and went out to a small lake and got my first of 2017 [​IMG]

    Nice! we have been on the crappie also. Yesterday we caught close to 70. I'll be going again the middle of this week. The warm weather has them fired up!

    First time fishing from it today and the first fish. Hopefully there's plenty more like this.

    I don't tournament fish, but I love hitting up the smallmouth on my yak.
    Still wanting to hook up to a decent catfish and go for a sleigh ride.

    Local private lake had a dam breakdown. Carp have been easy pickings in the shallow watet with snag rigs.

    They might be a trash fish but 30 pounders on rod and reel are always fun!

    I've got the itch to get out there. 72 hour work weeks have a way of keeping me off the water. Looks like I'll be able to slide down to the Ozarks later this month for a few days though.

    Went out fishing last night with some buddies and we were able to land 10 bass, 1 carp, and a 60 lb. pitbull...I ended up rescuing this dog that was 200 yards away from shore and about 2 minutes away from drowning. So random night but we got out to fish!
