New From Virginia

Recommended Posts

Hello all, just found the forums after getting a small boat and catching my usual summertime bass fishing fever.

Mostly I've been fishing the small ponds and resevoirs near my house because they're easy to get to.  Now, with the addition of my little tiny boat, I'm curious to get out a bit more to other places to check out.

I've been fishing almost all my life, nothing profession or tournament, though.  My earliest memories are of being like 6 or 7 and fishing for Perch and Trout in the mountains of Utah. Then as I grew up and moved around the Country the love of fishing never died. I think I gained the love of Bass fishing from ponds in Texas, and rivers in Nevada/Arizona. 

While not a professional, and even not very knowledgeable, I've had a blast fishing all my life.  I'm curious to know more about lures and baits and techniques.  Not sure if it'll change what I"ve been doing very much, but I'm curious =)

Happy fishing!

Sippi,

Great having another Virginia guy with us.

If you add to your avatar your location we can give you more help.

Pick up a copy of the free 2010 Fishing in Virginia booklet from the Virginia G&IF. It lists places to fish and launch your boat in different geographical areas.

Be sure to read what you need on your boat and having a cushion on deck at all times so you will not get a ticket.

DG&IF conservation officers are patrolling more and more and I was stopped two weekends in a row, once on Lake Chesdin and then on the upper Rappahannock River.

Please let us know where you go and what you catch.  :)

K, got the location on the Avatar, didn't know if anyone was interested in exacting location in VA, lol. I've only really been fishing the reservoir near my House (pelham), but I'll probably hit up Mountain Run in the next few weeks in an ever expanding exploratory boat fest =)

I got the booklet, and have spent the last 3 days getting all the various "Items" needed.  Boat registration, county reservoir registration, life jackets, throw cushion, almost overwhelming.

My profile pic is actually the Bass I caught this past weekend out of the boat I was very pleased with it.  Dunno about keeping "keepers" yet.  But I've been posting them on my facebook like crazy.  I would post the other "biggun" I caught, but the site won't let me until 10 posts or something.  Ah well.

LOL, I wouldn't exactly call it a monster, but of course anything larger than the rest of the people fishing with you is something to brag about.
