Spearfishing offshore and hunting the kelp beds inshore are what keeps me sane in between waterfowl seasons. One of the benefits from spearfishing is I've learned so much more about fish and their behaviors from watching them underwater. I truly think it's made me a better fisherman.

I fish mostly out of Moss Landing but made my first trip out to the channel Islands last September. Fishing was dead but what a great location.
Towed my 28' sport fisher down to Santa Barbara slick as a whistle after a complete brake job.
I would love to meet up with some channel Islands fishermen and bring my boat back down next spring I really want to run south for some yellowfin.

nice boat and all those fish cluttering up the decks make it look even better.
Thanks and I will be looking forward to more discussions.

We fish Walleye. Catch n Release of course! We've got our own little reservoir called Little Rose Lake. It's connected to big Rose in Vergas, MN. It's private but we let our guests fish it as long as they release the Walleye. Many of our guests fish it for Crappie. Big Rose and Little Rose supply a lot of Northern Pike to us as well. You can catch those all day long!

Right now we are ice fishing. We have our house on Little Rose because it's easy to get onto. We're jigging and using rattle reels with Shiners. So far so good! Although my concern is that the Walleye population may be getting a little dense as I've noticed some warts on them and the Crappie population is dwindling. May let some guests take a few Walleye this spring.

I also started fishing when I was old enough to hold onto a rod. When I was a kid I worked in a tackle shop building fishing rods and then worked a couple summers on sportboats. I used to competitive bass fish a little but my real passion is ocean fishing off Southern California and Mexico. Tuna are my favorite especially Albacore... because I love to BBQ them!! Because of my addiction to bowhunting I don't fish as much anymore. I still build rods as a hobby. Ed FAnd thats some fine looking thread work you do there Ed! You been at it awhile!

I'm a born and raised Floridian from the west coast of Florida right on the Gulf of Mexico. Great fishing down here. I grew up doing a lot of off shore fishing and spear fishing on the reefs. Mostly fishing for grouper, flounder, cobia, and plenty of hog snapper for spearing. Also been doing a lot of inshore fishing recently catching reds, snook, trout, and just finished off a nice tarpon season.
