What Kind of bass fishing do you wish you had?

Recommended Posts

For me, it is simple: Lilly Pads.

I would love to fish for big fish in pads with a mission fish or frog.

If you've seen the Joe Thomas/Lucky Craft videos on youtube where he's fishing a sammy on El Salto, then you would know exactly the kind of fishing I wish I could have for a few months. 5s and 6s on topwater with what seems like every other cast.

I love it here in the Florida Panhandle, but it would be perfect if we had smallmouth bass.

Does this make you green with ***?

Now, if I could get some of the fish you have out there in here, I'd have my dreams come true :)

Yeah, those are the ones.  Geez, that fish is so big, it doesn't look right.   :o

We have these 3 pounders here, instead:

I'm not a "grass is greener" kind of guy. I love what I have, and wish I had more time to devote to it.

And to really bring this sentiment home, I spent two years in urban industrial China. I loved the friends I made, but the landscape made me start hallucinating for home. The first morning back home (now in CO) I  sat by a mountain stream and watched trout rise in crystal water to a chorus of robins.

I then began bass fishing again (after years of trout chasing), and remember walking up to a marshy pond with my new son on my back, and letting out a long contented sigh. I found myself doing that often enough that my little boy, not yet talking, began to do the same :)! Sure pleased me to share those wonderful "green" scenes with him. And still does.

Let's just say I know where I'm NOT happy -where the grass is "browner". And I've got more green here than I can ever really cover.

I have all the bass fishing I could ever want within 2 hours of home. Rivers and lakes with smallmouth, spotted bass, and largemouth. Tidal rivers with largemouth and smallmouth.

Here in Ohio we have a pretty diverse choice of lakes from natural lakes with lilies and grass to rocky reservoirs. And of course Lake Erie. So it's all about what type of fishing you feel like that day or outing.

I would LOVE to have some smallmouth.

I would LOVE to have standing cypress trees.

Home lakes are just about soup bowls. Not much grass, not many trees.

I am very happy with what I have BUT could do without the 4-5 month winter interruption. Thank goodness for bowhunting and our steelhead fishery.

Grass. My home lake has very little grass. Some of the other lakes we fish in the state have grass and I really like fishing those lakes. My home lake does kind of cater to a crankbait though so I can't complain too much.

Geeez..... I LOVE the fishing opportunities here in Nor Cal. So Cal has a little bigger top end size.... but then we have 300 lb + Sturgeon, and 8 lb + Smallmouths.....

Now, had you asked, what "other kinds of fishing" do you wish you had.....

Well, I'm envious of the huge Flatheads and Blue cats from down South. And I've always wanted to catch a big Musky.

But I wouldn't trade what I have for any other place in the world.

Peace,

Fish

I wish I had 75 degrees, a drizzle and 8mph southwest wind always.

I'm plenty happy with the fishing we have here, nothing else I could ask for, not yet that is.
