I like fishing for Blues on the Outer Banks. So much fun.
I had thought about getting my dad and heading to a nearby lake today. But we've had 4+" of rain this week. Lakes have risen fast, are very muddy, and we had a cold front come thru yesterday, plusbits pretty windy. Dad wouldn't have enjoyed that and we wouldn't have caught anything ether

We are waiting till this spring break is over.Although St.Augustine wasn'r bad at all we still like going when beach isn't crowded. As you know its been a rough last couple years for all of us so time to get out and enjoy things.

Good fishing it still a month and a half away here. The Sunfish will come on in mid May. I'm hoping for a better year this year. Our local county park has a 150 acre lake that usually produces tons of crappies in late may and June but last year didn't measure up. My daughter and I have caught 50 fish a day there before. Last year I don't think we caught more than 10 in any one trip.

I have been living 13 miles from a lake and 100 yards from a river for going on 5 years and haven't been fishing. That just seems sad. I think I will go get me a license. If I spend the money I will make time.

1) Panfish, good for supper and bait.
2) Catfish, good for supper :D

It was a picture last week to see a bunch of my young Mennonite neighbors headed to the creek with landing nets and buckets to catch carp. 13 for them, that one day. It always amazes me how the fish make it miles to these tiny creeks then back to the lake. Most times the creek is only like a mud puddle.
Better, at the lake, it’s now trout season and it sounds like they’re great this year.
I don’t fish. The rods I have are for surf casting. The ocean is where my heart is.

I used to fly fish too, when I was in high school. The 'gills in the old gravel pits and farm ponds had never seen a fly on the surface before, and they would come right on up for them in the spring.

I was never much good with a fly rod, and I used my dad's old rod in high school. I never bought my own. Haven't fly fished in 30 years...maybe I should try it again?

It was us, I think. We didn't go as much. Everyone was going to the lake to be outside because of Corona, but there were still social distancing rules on the fishing docks. We started busting brush to go to new spots on the lake shore away from people, and it didn't always pay off..

Ocean is mine too. Also like the cold mountain streams sometimes. But ocean is my favorite/
