Any travelling bass fisherman?

Recommended Posts

Ok how many states have you caught a bass in? LM, SM, Spot or any other species of Bass no rock bass or any perch. This should be interesting.

Here is my list.

1) Texas

2) Florida

3) Colorado

4) Kansas

5) Arkansas

6) Oklahoma

7) Georgia

8) New Mexico

9) Alabama

I have had the pleasure of living in Texas, Colorado, Georgia, and Florida and have been priviledged to fish in a myriad of different type lakes.

How about you? Any other frequent traveler fishermen around?

Won't be long before..."Have you heard the one about the travelling bass fisherman and the farmer's daughter?" :o

Personally, I can't wait. So here goes.

Seems a travelling bass fisherman was making his way through rural Texas on his way to Lake Mungus (Named for Hugh Mungus, a former director of Texas Parks and Wildlife.) All of a sudden an untoward series of events unfolded.

First, a violent thunder and hail storm brewed up, effectively blinding our hero. Then, the swing-away tongue on his trailer...well...swung away, on a sharp curve in the road. Finally, he realized he was out of coffee...Oh, gall! Oh, Cruel Fate!

As he stood, being stung by large raindrops and bruised by hailstones, surveying his 21' 2.3" StripedApeSSVXGTO boat, now nestling in a ditch, though undamaged, he realized that he must seek help.

Squinting through the gloom he spotted a dim and distant light. "Aha!" thought he, "That must be a ranch house, where help is available!" "Hmmmm..." he further mused, "Where there's a ranch house, there's a rancher, probably a jolly one, and where there's a rancher, there are rancher's daughters!"

So, removing his new GPS from the boat, stuffing it in his pocket (along with a small vial of Pfizer's most popular product,)and assuring that the storage compartments on the boat were locked, he began his trek.

After what seemed like an eternity of slogging through Caliche muck, being poked by prickly pear, rattled at by rattlers, and stalked by a famished 'yote he stumbled onto the veranda of a rather rundown ranch house. Hearing a noise outside his dwelling, the rancher, a large and capable-looking chap, opened his door to see our angler collapsed in utter exhaustion on his stoop.

"Good Lord, man!", cried the rancher, "What has befallen ya'll?"

"Can't...talk. Too...tired...tell...you...later...need...sleep...understand that...I'll...have to...(cough)....sleep with...(wheeze)...your...daughter...s'OK."

"Actually, pilgrim, ya'll will be bunkin' with my son, Bruce. He's home on vacation from the University of Texiz, whar he's majoring in Modern Dance, with a minor in Drama."

The angler (A staunchly heterosexual Oklahoma Sooner, they ALL are!) stood up, cleared his throat, and said "Thanks anyway. How far is it to the next ranch?"

LBH,

Nice list there. In all due respect though from where you are it is easy to drive into a bunch of states up there and fish  ;D Could probably fish in 3 states all in one day. lol

But you got us all beat so far.

Exactly.  Someone in Texas probably fishes world class impoundments their whole life.  Whereas I've seen maybe 4 or 5. Champlain, Fork,Winnie,.....ummmmmmm  ok 3

Nothing wrong with a 1 state list if you live in heaven,................FishChris? lol

What do we got 14 as a high water mark? I would have thought someone on here would have caught bass in 20 or more states. But states and international has to go to Kana.
