With warm weather finally gracing our presence, I've been fishing more and more often. Right now seems to be a good time for late season crappie and walleye fishing with the recent cold snaps ruining their spawning times. Right now is also a great time for catfish with the mild temperatures. With a decent sized cat landed last night, my fishing fever is burning red hot again.
So, a few questions for the board: What do you like to fish for? Favorite gear? Any recent trophy catches? Have any big fishing trips planned for the summer?
Again this year, my friend and I will be traveling to Branson, Missouri to fish for bass out of Table Rock Lake, one of the premier bass lakes in the United States. Last year we didn't so well with so many people on the lake for the 4th of July, but we learned our lesson and will be going a week earlier this time around. If you've never been, I highly recommend it as both a great fishing area and an awesome family getaway to the Ozark Mountains.
Please share your fishing stories, favorite spots (if you don't mind), and excuses to tell your spouse for that needed time away (I need more of these).
Happy fishing, and Go Blue!
