  1. Starting to get just warm enough that I can trick myself into thinking the open water isn't too far away. This is the time of year when I suck at life the least, so I am fiening for it...

    What is everyones favorite...

    Rod?
    Reel?
    Line?
    Fish?
    Lure?
    Technique?
    Lake?

    Anything open water fishing fellas, its getting to be that time...
     
  2. Rod - St. Croix Avid. (I'm afriad to try a loomis)
    Reel - Shimano
    Line - Berkley Vanish
    Lure - Yum Dinger
    Technique - Texas or Carolina rig
    Lake - St. Clair River
     

  3. Right now, I'm watching it rain and thinking about Racoon Lake in April, and the Crow Wing chain of lakes in northern Minnesota. I like fishing. I don't have a rabid preference for any one species. My 6' spinning rods are all threaded with 6# Berkley, and my tackle box is loaded for bass, or crappie, or silvers, or 'gills, or....whatever tugs.

    :fish: :fish: :fish: :fish:

  11. Any pole and rod is fine with me...as long as I have my Zoom finesse worms in one of the following colors:

    1.) Cotton candy

    Carolina rigged with a piece of split shot, and I'm catching them all day long! ;)
     
  12. Actually, I forgot. My favorite tackle.

    Reflex bow, fiberglass arrow, and line retriever.

    Nothing like bow fishing.:coolgleam
