King of the Mexicans

Had a fun morning on another new (to me) reservoir. Initially I planned on drop-shotting some nightcrawlers, but after losing the first rig almost immediately, realized I'd left almost all my terminal tackle at home. All I had left was my trusty ned-rigged rod. I put the rest of the worms on the Ned head and pulled in a half-dozen in the 0.5 - 3 lb range. Really nice time. I still can't get over how light they hit on that bait. I end up paying such rapt attention to the line that I can't do the other things I usually do while fishing (get stoned, browse farmersonly.com)

Fishing sheepshead with fiddler crabs is an exercise in patience. You just dont do anything while they niblle away and you wait for them to set the hook. Otherwise you just lose them.

I am still feeding the pond outside my place and the size and quantity of the Bluegills is getting very very nice. The Grey Herons and 18" Snapper are getting very well fed lol

Once again folks, I'm in Valparaiso, Indiana, so if you live in the Chicagoland/NWI area and want to fish a pond that has a lot of decent sized Bluegill, Bullheads, and Bass here you go. If you let me know ahead of time, I've got a restroom you can use etc. If you don't like the whole "catching fish" part of fishing, this is not the pond for you.

There's two problems with this post, 1.) Most of you are in North America, 2.) Even if you were in the UK/Ireland you can't tell what a spot would be like just from an image. So really, I'm only looking for a rough idea.




My story. I bought a cheap rod and reel set from a fishing shop. They said it wasn't awful, and would get me started. Since then I realised I don't actually have a way to get to any shore fishing spots. However, this little rocky bit of land is five minutes from a place I do stay on the coast (I've been warned off more obvious spots due to people being washed away there.)

This two photos are within a salt water harbour, it's mostly enclosed, and it's a fairly trafficked area. I'm just wondering does this have the look of somewhere fish might congregate? This is the south west of Ireland, as I know that can make a difference. I think either way I'm going to come back at some point and throw a rod in there, even if it's hopeless.

How rough is the surf? That's the only thing I can think that might be an issue. Also how deep is it near those rocks?

I dont fish salt water so other may be more detailed but semi-deep + structure = some type of fish to me. If it is a good type of fish is up in the air

Anytime I fished a new coast line I just did basic research on the fish in the area and the type of habitats they like such as sandy bottom, rocks, grass bed, etc. You can learn alot by tossing a line out with a sinker on it to feel what the bottom is like.

You can also look for the difference in the way the waves break and the color of water to find the deeper holes too. When it comes to bait what ever is native works well.

I find myself unreasonably angry that Shakespeare no longer makes the best cat fish rod ever made. The entire cat fish rod industry are now only selling broomsticks with no sensitivity as a product. Scalpers are now selling the discontinued rod that used to cost $40 for more than 120. Itís just loving madness.

Where those rocks drop off into deeper water is a likely ambush spot for predatory fish, so a baitfish suspended under a bobber might do well.

Otherwise, the mouth of the harbor would make fantastic fishing, especially when the tide is moving strongly through it.

The uscacat701mh.

The rod itself is more what I would consider a medium rod to feel like, but its listed as medium heavy. What made this rod special is that the tip of the rod is very sensitive and that limberness extends to basically half the rod. The lower have is the backbone you would expect in a catfish rod and has no issues pulling up monster fish.

What makes this rod great is that its basically the ultimate all purpose rod for catfish. If you are fishing from the bank, its just tall enough to cast things long distances if you don't have or want a surf rod. If you are on a boat, its not so long that wouldn't make suspend/vertical fishing awkward.

In about any situation, the tip is soft enough to let you be able to tell the difference between a nibble and an actual bite/takedown in a way that most rods these days don't. 99% of the catfish focused rods are broomsticks that have so little give that figuring out the difference between and nibble and a real bite is painful. You are basically left to using the clicker on your real and hoping for the best.

It was also cheap (40$) and pretty much indestructible outside of a card door or tailgait. I only own 4 and at this point I wish I had bought 10.

I was under the impression that catfish always hooked themselves because everyone used circle hooks for them. I wouldnít have thought sensitivity mattered since you just wait for them to run.

I finally actually fished at the pond I feed yesterday with a friend and it's ridiculous. Never took more than 30 seconds to get a bite, usually far far less. We were only targeting the Bluegill, got a few smaller ones but most catches were about 5-6" and we caught a few 7-8". He said fishing here feels like cheating. I've always hated the "sit around and wait" part of fishing so I had a lot of fun.

You are right. The problem comes that if you aren't on a clicker (and essentially letting them take free line at will) the point between taking the bait all the way in their month and just having part of the bait means that a heavy action rod can and will often given enough resistance to make the fish not hook up and pull it free prematurely.

You should be using circle hooks and you should not be setting the hook. The goal is to know when the catfish actually has it and that is where the sensitivity rules. You real down on the fish (instead of setting the hook) you want it to be in their mouth.

Its a lot like a rod you would use for crappie. Ripping baits away from crappie is easy without a nice limber rod.

I rebuild reels for friends and family as a hobby so Iím always on the lookout for cheap parts donors & rebuild candidates. My wife spotted this haul on Facebook Marketplace for $30:



Iíve been wanting to build a set of reels for my sisterís kids; there are three Penn 350M levelwinds in that haul that should be perfect for them. They use a rotating twisted rod to move the line side-to-side so thereís a lot less to tangle and they cast like a conventional reel.



Iím going to set them up with identical rods and line so they can all have their own without having to fight for Ďthe good rodí. These should be good for jigging, possibly some shore fishing or at their other grandparentsí lake cabin.

First, make sure you have a clean and organized work space:



Not shown: tons of WD-40. Itís magic juice for reel work. Right after that picture I promptly made a mess of everything with WD-40.

I hate stripping line off reels. I have a jig for when Iím saving the line but throwing it away is a PITA, especially after itís welded itself together with sun and salt.



Tearing everything down, this is the main gear:



Iíve never seen that mode of failure before. Looks like the narrow spot (thereís normally a machined groove there) cracked through and a chunk is missing. Looks like Iíll have to order parts because of course this isnít shared with any of my parts reels. Iíll put it back together, though, as it works without a load and Iíll order new drag washers to match - the existing ones appear to be 40+ years old.

GOOD MORNING

I have a fishing trip coming up and could use some advice.

I fish the Potomac for smallmouth. The bottom is really rocky. I usually use ned rig, but dont rig it weedless or anything, just that ned rig hook. Problem is, with the rocky bottom, I know I'm going to hang up a lot. I've just got a Dobins Fury rod, and am new to running braid and a leader.

If I don't figure out how to rig up a worm so that it doesn't get hung up on the bottom, I forsee a day of not a lot of fun for me tying a ton of alberto knots and lost lures since i'm running braid / flouro leader on my main rod now.

Any suggestions on how to avoid this? I can also run a texas or carolina rig with a bigger worm, but never really learned how to do this that well. I can always do some internet homework but figured I'd start with this thread first.

I might bring an extra rod to just have something else on so in case I do snag a lot, I'll be able to tie on more lures quickly.

I can also run other lure types, like rapalas or whatnot so suggestions welcome.

These are good alternatives to ned rigs when you feel like you are going to get hung up. They are designed to be hooked up texas style, while still being light and hooking up well with ned baits.

In-line spinners are deadly on smallmouth in the Potomac. They're also a lot tougher to hang up than a senko worm.

My favorite spot around there is the highway 7 bridge over the Shenandoah river. Just wade upstream (south) up the middle and cast towards the shore and any rocks. Absolutely loaded with smallmouth. Especially nice when its balls-hot in the summer.

Finally got a productive fishing day, gently caress.

Started off early with a spoon, some ned rigging and wacky rigging just dicking around with no real bites. Made our way back to a more secluded pond with a good sized gator friend, figuring he was eating something or other.



Nothing for scale, but he was prob 6-7ft long, getting some good sun.

Buddy pulled up this monster...haven't seen a largemouth this big in a minute.



Switched over to a basic carolina rig with a purpley worm

Caught a little largemouth (no pics) and this little white crappie (I think) which I wasn't targeting and didn't even know was in the pond.



Moved over to another small pond and caught this little guy near a culvert.



Turns out, catching fish is more fun than not catching fish. I should've just been doing this the whole time. Who knew?

I have fished all my life and nothing drives me up a wall more than light line on a spinning reel. It feels awful to cast, the line twist is loving gross, and I will deal with a birdnest all day compared to the murder scenes that happen when line gets all twisted up in a spinning reel.

The shimano curado has a bfs coming out next month on preorder. I just bought one because I am dumb. I hope this thing turns out legit. I am a little skeptical at only being able to spool up 40 yards of 8lb line, but there is a chance that this is just better than spooling up 200 yards of lines you will only ever use 30% of.

Yeah something like this or this (both in the 3" size) for the popper, and along these lines for the walker, although I haven't fished that particular one. I'm sure snap swivels would work fine, but I just tie straight to the line tie. I fish these with mono line on a medium power rod.
