Guessing by the amount of new posts, I would venture a guess that plenty of you are already out on the lakes and rivers.
I figure we can get a decent discussion going as to what areas you like to fish, what lures you like, what line you use etc.
Anything to take the topic off what it has been for too long.
I enjoy river fishing, but have never been much for fly-fishing. It's nice to fish on rivers up here, due to the geology of the area there are plenty of large rocks jutting into the rivers creating some real good hiding places for Bass.
I don't have a huge collection of lures, but my main staples are Mepps Comets or Agilas. I picked up a few cheapo Matzsuo spinners when they were on sale at Gander and I like the look of them in the water. But, then again, I am not a fish.
I have some good "the one that got away" stories, but right now there is only one fish I would be happy to let the line snap on. I would even let my favorite lure go if we don't land this old lunker.
