Have any of you eaten goldfish before?

One time in college I dropped my friend's goldfish into a beer and drank it. So, technically, yes.

Check, m8. Your play.

I ask because goldfish are just offshoots of asian carp that were raised for food and, through random mutations, became red/orange/yellow and started being kept as pets. They can actually get pretty large.
>>
>>1106404
I think right now is a good time to start researching goldfish recipes because giant salt-resistant invasie goldfishies are being found in areas of Australia and biologists are pretty conerned. Eat'em up I says.

Check your own local and state fishing regs.
You don't want to get fined/have your shit confiscated because you got trolled by someone on an anonymous Iranian carpet weaving image board.
>>
>>1106446
I would not call that trolling as it is not uncommon for states to let Lt.Dans fish for free. That still does not mean they should not read the rules and regulations for their area.
>>
>>1106470
My state they have to be quadriplegic (or under 16 or over 65) to not need a license.

No, don't ask me how a quadriplegic is going to actually do any fishing. No, sitting there while someone else fishes for you isn't fishing in either the common or legal definition.
>>
>>1106415
purchase fishing gear that will break before it tips your chair over
>>
>>1106505
I think that's why.
If you're talented enough to catch fish with no arms or legs, they'll let you out of admiration even if nothing else.
I know I'd be impressed enough to let them do it if I was a cop or game warden.
>>
>>1106505
There are also incomplete quadriplegics who can move arms, but either have no feeling, no fine motor control or nowhere near enough strength in their arms to function normally.
My mom was a visiting nurse who cared for one when I was a kid.
>>
>>1106514
Agreed. I couldn't imagine how big of a dick some LEO would have to be to ticket a (legit) cripple for fishing without a license unless he was breaking other laws too.

>>1106519
While this is true those...really don't meet the medical definition of a quadriplegic though. However, the SOLE metric for what my state judges that off is "did you get a medical doctor to sign the state-provided medical waiver" and I know people with nothing wrong with them that either had an MD family member sign it or simply found an MD with no scruples they could pay off for it.

There's apparently no recourse the state can take against a doctor basically lying on the form, and there's apparently no recourse the state can take against somebody who got the form signed that doesn't qualify.

I've never gotten shit for eating saltwater sport fish but I think eating bass is kind of weird. It doesn't really taste that great imo and you are taking away from the small pool of decent sport fish in an area.

>>1106865
It's not like you eat the really big ones, though.
>>
>>1106865
Up above 15lbs you're right, but even largemouth bass with shit genetics will reach 7-8lbs, and fish over 10lbs is not at all uncommon given enough food and warm water.
The big secret is keeping people from taking them out of the lake. If you can do that, the size will come.

whats the advantages of a 'soft' rod?

What are the advantages of a medium-slow action rod rathern than a fast rod?

I tried googlign this shit but all i can find is what defines a fast action rod, what this that is and it gets confusing and doesnt tell me how it actually affects stuff.

Is one better than the other?
>>
>>1107106
slower rods protect light line better because the increased bend allows you to put less pressure on a fish while still getting consistent pressure, and when the fish shakes its head the soft rod bounces and wiggles more, absobing the shock of the head shakes and runs. thats really about it.
>>
>>1107106
>>1107109
Slower rods have more give. Whether that be for fighting the fish, or hooking it.

For moving baits like cranks, swim jigs, spinnerbaits, etc. you'll want a slower action so the hooks get set better. Crankbaits especially
>>
>>1106900
Juvie black sea bass they're pretty aggresive when they school up near structure. Pretty good fight on light gear
>>
>>1107109
>>1107209
Cool, so the advantage of fast action is that you feel it more as its sensitive, but what are the other advantages and the disadvantages over a slower rod?

Thanks
>>
>>1107271
a fast action rod lets you strike faster and harder, as well as have better feel, and give more accurate presentations with a jig (imagine bouncing a half ounce jig with a wooden stick vs a pool noodle and you will understand the difference in that) however, the faster rod puts more shock in the line on a hook strike, because its in the stiff butt section almost instantly. a slow action rod will be better for protecting line (imagine 8 lb line with a 30 pound fish on it, and you will under stand why a slow action fiberglass rod is popular for them) and on that same token, calms hook sets, because on a crankbait, you are already cranking hard enough that a fish can almost set the hook on its self, then you add in a jerk, that is a lot of force, and the slower rod helps absorb that, so you will be less likely to break your line, straighten a hook, or tear the lure out of the fish's face.
>>
>>1107271
>>1107277
To add; in essence a fast action is for Texas rigs, Carolina rigs, jigs, jerkbaits, frogs, drop shots, shakey heads, and anything else with a move-stop-move retrieve.

A moderate-fast action is for swim jigs, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, chatterbaits, or anything else with a single, thick hook that is constantly moving.

A moderate action is for crankbaits, wakebaits, hard swimbaits, spoons, inline spinners, and anything else with multiple treble hooks that is constantly moving.

Of course, some pros or "pros" like to stray from this guide to be special snowflakes
>>
>>1107295
>>1107277
and a slow action is for big fish on light tackle, like salmon, where you will sometimes be forced to face off with a 30 pound fish in a river with 10 lb line
>>
Would switching from 6lb to 4 or 2 lb test improve casting on light lures?
>>
>>1107323
it should
>>
>>1106644
Try fishing with streamers, like a wooly bugger. That will help with basic mechanics (casting, line control) and will catch fish.

Deeper than you think, and most likely schooling.
Think about it: they're not spawning, so they don't have hormones driving them insane. Now that they're sane fish, they do the things normal fish do, such as seeking out their favorite water temperature and following schools of food fish.

Ehh 30% percent difference between the two. If i had to chose between the two I prefer the alberto cause it's easier to tie especially at the beach.

fair enough, i prefer the performance of the fg knot, and im willing to spend an extra minute or two tying it for that reason. i just know i've tied fg knots that have failed partially but still held. i've never had a knot that forgiving, that even if it slips, its not over yet.

FG knot is confusing and hard to get right at first - don't despair. It will take some tries but once you get it, it is fairly simple and fast to tie.
Probably best for braid to mono/fluoro though but try it out.
>>1107907
FG is both smaller and stronger than Alberto. With Alberto you have the thick mono doubled as opposed to only single with FG.
It is easier to tie though but as I said above FG is not that difficult once you get the hang of it.

The lips break super easily and fish don't seem to care for them. Livetarget products are pure marketing hype. The only good lures they make are frogs and soft swimbaits.
>>
>>1108239
I bought a couple when I got them for sale for like $7ea. Thought they looked awesome at first but after using them, I was very unimpressed. The idea is cool, but I don't think it really makes a big difference while fishin. The action isn't even great, I would take a Yo-Zuri for $5 less all day. Also people say the lips break easily but I haven't bashed mine around enough.

They're fine. They have some cool designs that probably don't really help fish, but they look neat.

Savage Gear makes the superior meme baits though.

Can you fish for trout and bass with the same rod?
Like if i have a medium or a medium/heavy rod, will it be too strong to finesse a trout?
>>
>>1108316
You could probably get away with a softer medium, but I feel like a medium light would work better
>>
>>1108332
So I should get a separate rod for the type of fish?
>>
>>1108335
It's always better to have a rod specific to the task if you can afford it. Someone who actually fishes for trout can chime in, but I would assume you'll want to go with a light, maybe ultralight, rod if it's just for trout.
>>
>>1108316
I don't see why not but as >>1108341 says it is better to a rod for each purpose (and a chest full of gold to pay for all those rods).
It also matters where you fish for said trout. River, lake, open coast, fjords (inlet/bay) can all hold trout and with different conditions comes different needs.
To cut it clean: yes, you can fish for trout and bass with the same rod. Just as well as you can fish for roach and great white sharks with the same rod. Your experience might vary.
If I were you I would just go and give it a shot and see what it's like. If you find your current rod completely unsuitable, go get another one more suited for your needs.

Yes depending on where you catch the bass. I catch all of my bass with 6lb test UL fenwick my dad uses for trout.

Yet I fish rivers and a few ponds that aren't chocked and matted with weeds so I'm not hauling or punching vegetation along with the fish.

I think fish in the black bass family taste good. Fish within the 1-2 lb range taste pretty similar to sunfish. I wouldn't eat them if they're bigger than 5 lbs because they cane tend to get mushy. I think smallmouth are much better eating than largemouth.

Hey /fish/

Noob here
I'm going to the West coast of Scotland in a couple of weeks for the first time in years and I fancy breaking out my old fishing rod and trying to pull some shit out of the sea/sea lochs
Last time I was in Scotland I remember heading down to Mallaig pier with some mackrel feathers and hauling out mackrel pretty easily. Tried some spinners as well but didn't have much luck

Any tips on catching more interesting stuff or tips on spinning for fish of piers?
I don't really have much gear but I have a decent spinning rod and old french reel that looks like it's from the 50's and other miscelaneous stuff my Grandad gave me.

Any advice appreciated
>>
>>1108471
>I think smallmouth are much better eating than largemouth
They tend to stick to colder water. Even within the same species, a fish caught in colder water will taste better and have better texture than a fish caught in warmer water 100% of the time, and it only takes a few degrees' difference in water temperature to be noticeable.

Hell there's a lake near me that's generally deep but there's one point of shallow water. I could go out there and catch 6 fish from deep water and 1 off the point, have someone blindfold me while they filet and cook all the fish, and I will be able to tell you which one came off the point 90%+ of the time based on taste and texture because the water was 5* warmer.

Been fishing since 6am. Taking a 2-3 hr break then going wading at sundown for walleye. Any day I get to spend 10+ hours fishing is a good day

Also god fuckin damn were the small mouth jacked up today. I’ve never in my life seen smallmouth fight so damn hard. Things where pulling drag none stop for a solid 5+ mins and refused to let me reel in the slightest bit of line without making a 50 yard run.

Basicly what it is. Could easily make your own. Worked really good today though. And that color seemed to really out do the rest of the ones we had for some reason

Here’s the big stinky retard of a pickeral I got. Had a bunch more but they were snakes. Had one that was a for sure bigger than his but he got off. My buddy had a big one on too (we think the same one I had) but he got chomped off and lost his rig :(

Light rock fishing wheelbro! It is light and you cast with only one hand. It targets small hunting fishing but never the less it's a fun past time as your tackle and setup is so light that the battles can be quite interesting. You can do from ports, jetties and in general man made wheel chair accessible places. It is also quite cheep and you can use both tiny plastics and super metal jigs. Just remember c n r is the name of the game... and you never know when that yellow amberjack may appear....

Also if you have the money and a friend to help you carp match fishing is also a good alternative (at least in my country it is practiced mainly in harbours once again making it accessible for your wheels) it is a float fishing live bait (mainly fly large called bigatinni)technique called inglese fishing in continental Europe where you target small to medium fish right in front of you by first feeding the area in front of you with small scrap bait to attract the fishes and the casting your rod in that area. Unfortunately I can't find a guide as it is mainly practiced in Italy and Greece usually by really old people as it is a waiting game (one of the few techniques where do everything sitting down) but here is a carp match fishing guide that it is essentially the same...

To drunk for all that, what are the cliff notes.
>>
>>1109929
Bass see a lot like people do, except their pupils don't dilate. So, to counter this the rods and cones and their eyes change positions. Meaning that in low light situations they see more in grey tones than in clear water on a sunny day where they see in straight color.

It also mentions bass can see in low light situations much better than humans, and it goes into what the different colors look like at different depths.

Can someone explain to me why tubes come in such a shitty selection of colors?

Here you go mang.


But to actually answer your question, one of the reasons tubes work so well is because they're subtle. I've heard that you want to match the tube to the color of the bottom. Also, the tube isn't popular so they'll stick to colors they know will sell, which is natural and black/blue.


That being said, I've got some stupid colorful little tubes for panfish, and I wish I could get them in a bigger size.

Accessibility is probably the only issue you'll have, but google should tell you which local waters are wheelchair accessible.
Most piers and jetties will be fine. If you're looking to fish a private water that's difficult to get to, ask the owner if they would consider making their water more wheelchair friendly.
There was a lake near me (Ireland) that had a number of jetties round the southern shore, each of which began about 3 feet out into the water. Someone asked if they would be willing to make a change, and now every jetty has a ramp connecting it to dry land, so all people can fish there. There's no harm in asking, and people/businesses can be surprisingly accommodating, especially for something which will allow them more custom.
Long story short, google to find places you can fish right now, and ask places that aren't accessible, there's a good chance they'll act on your suggestion and they could very well be an option in the near future.

A long handled net is worth investing in, and if you go for a telescopic handle, try to get one with as few sections as possible, for strength.

That's about it, aside from the getting to the waters edge, fishing in a wheelchair is no different to fishing without.

MariagerAnon I assume? (I remember you said before you wanted to catch mackerel)
Where and how is on the image. In case the image is unclear the method I find to be the most efficient is the good old float 'n' hook. They also take spoons, wobblers etc. but I like the float. Nostalgia, relaxing in the sun and whatnot.. Hook baited with a strip of herring. Usually no more than 7cm long and 2cm wide but normally smaller.
Depth about as deep as I can get it. My rods have rather small guides so a float stop would be unhandy so usually I can't get deeper than 3m. Depth depends on the day and where you are ofc. Mackerel can be found at any depth so it depends on the day I guess.
The tricky part is usually finding them. They come in schools so you can sit and fish for days on end with no fish at all then all of the sudden when a school passes by you can catch over 9000 in 5minutes.
As for what to look for in a good spot I don't really know actually. I guess a bit of depth is good but don't know. Haven't bothered to read up on it as I've caught mackerel almost every time I targeted them. One thing I did read though was that murky water is supposed to be bad as a) they hunt by eyesight and b) the gills are very fine and getting sand and shit in there is annoying. They also like to swim around with their mouths wide open eating plankton.
If it's you MariagerAnon, better hurry. Season is coming to an end. Don't know where it would be good near you though.
>>
>>1110645
>s there equipment light and portable enough to fish with?
Ofc. there is. Look at travel rods for a good starting point. As for weight I guess 500g is what you can expect for added weight if thats an issue.
>>
>>1110645
Yes, but you won't be able to carry a whole bunch of tackle. Fly fishing would probably be better suited to such a task
>>
>>1110645
Tenkara rods, as big a meme as they are, fill this role nicely.

>>1110649
Sorry to disappoint, I don't think I've asked about mackerel before. I'm in the Boston area and I heard they could be caught offshore with sabiki rigs and jigs.
>>
>>1110689
You don't really need a bunch of stuff to catch fish. 99% of us bring with us way more then we need or even use each trip.
Of the gazillion lures I have I guess I only use around 10 of them consistently (make that 5 for the UL tackle and 5 for the regular coast-rod).

>>1110704
No worries. Just another anon from Denmark asked about mackerel some time ago as well.
And yes, sabikis, jigs etc. should work as well. They can be caught on pretty much anything. For me, float and a strip of herring has been most consistent though.
Earlier this year the harbour was full of mackerel and people fishing for them. On the day I have in mind only me and one other guy caught anything. Both of us fishing with float and herring, everybody else was using sabikis and spoons. And my experience has been the same other times I went out with two rods. One with float and herring, other one fishing with spoon/wobbler/sabiki/whatever and the vast majority I caught were on the herring.
As I said, the hardest part is usually finding them. For that, you have to do some research yourself I guess - both spots and season. Being from Denmark I know nothing whatsoever about fishing in and around Boston.
>>
Survival speaking you'd only be needing to go after sunnies, or other larger baitfish. Minimally id only need fishing line and hooks. Bait you can find your self or even craft a lure out of very simple things since you're probably not going after picky fish.
A rod and reel is not necessary, although a handline reel makes it easier.
>>
>>1110713
>I know nothing whatsoever about fishing in and around Boston.
But you know the basics and how to employ them effectively. That's 90% of it. The rest is just going out fishing and seeing what works for what you want. Any decent local bait shop should be able to get you started there.

I mean I'm 6' and we will always look like kids on a 20" bike. There are a lot of 24" cruisers but it's not quite the same.

Not sure what is even out there now. Albe's, Empire, and DansComp are a few big BMX websites so go look at their "completes" and try to spend at least $300-$400 for something that isn't a POS.

The few things they measure and you can get different sizes on are top tube, crank length, and bar height. Top tube I believe 21"+ will make it a lil better. 180mm at least on cranks and 8"+ rise on the bars. But buying a complete, not sure on the choices you will get and it will cost $1000+ to build it yourself.

Spinnerbaits did the trick. Stained river, lots of stick ups and bank fishing cause the river is all mud bottom.

Do make sure you don't get bit off

That sounds straight.

You can tell a big difference riding something like that compared to one of the $150 kids 20" BMX bikes at Dick's or wherever.

Also just remember, don't expect to ride the thing like a normal bicycle. The seats are kinda an afterthought. On mine, it sits super low so it's out of the way but you can still grip it with your knees for tricks like barspins. I can't sit on the seat and pedal at the same time. I pedal standing up and I can sit on the seat while coasting, but not both.

yeah, im ready for that. i was thinking maybe if i get a long top tube i could velco an allen key to the under side of my top tube or something, then just have it maxed out to the top to pedal in to town, then i can just bottom it out when im ready to ride. would only add a few oz and i'm far from a weight weenie.

also yeah, when i was getting some skate shoes at walmart and did a little english bunny hop on one of their kids bmx bikes, the handle bars were loose, so i ate shit (have the bruise to prove it) and there was an awful metalic clang between me landing and me dying so i just put it back and walked away quickly.

Nice, I got my rod tip in today so I’ll head up tomorrow. The two reports from this morning said is was really good today. I’m hoping the rain we are getting now through tonight will help tomorrow be even better
>>
>>1111082
where is this?
>>1111095
if its not a crazy far drive i would just go see what the water is doing, or just give it an extra day, rain muddies the water and the fish dont bite as much, at least in ohio
>>
>>1111105
>skid talking to himself again
>>
>>1111105
Takes me like 40 mins to get where I wanna fish. They usually post the first report around 8am so I’ll wait till then to head up. I’m not too worried about it though it’s just been off and on light showers so far

i think i just had an idea. a de-spooler
just a big spool where one end straps in to a hand drill, then the one side plate is removed with a wing nut, then the barrel is angled so that once you've wound the line on it just falls off

So I'm new to trout fishing and was kind of wondering about the seasons/spawning periods/best times etc.

I know about bass and catfish patterns because I've fished those my whole life. But I don't really know much about the year of trout fishing.

I'm in southern kentucky if that makes a difference weather wise.

Wow I wanna die. So you guys know how I got my rod tip in yesterday right? Well I went out this morning and went fishing and when I went to walk back to my truck the rod tip got caught in a root that was climbing up and broke AGAIN! I was so sad. There were so many fish in the river too :’(

The only good thing to come from the day was when I was next to this really old guy fishing he hooked up and needed someone to help him land it so I obviously volunteered. After landing it for him he explained his entire rig to me and gave me some of his hand tied flys that he was catching them on.

I’m just praying I get that next tip
In before Thursday so I can go at least once before the mobs get there next weekend.

How do I cast further?
I went steelhead fishing in a river and I wasn't able to cast very far.
>>
>>1111431
>heavier weight
>lighter line
>full spool on spinning reel...
>...or good casting reel with very light beakes and tention
>Long rod
>rod action/weight that matches the weight of the bait/lure well

>>1111433
I was just casting a salmon egg attached to a 10 hook. What size sinker should I use?
>>
>practically the first time fishing in fall like conditions
>Skunk by missing two good fish to them jumping + numerous bites that didnt hook up + a foul hooked dink smallie
Got a redbreast at least.

I was using a fluke in shad color. Idk why I didnt go with the normal jigs + zoom worms.

Mfw the 3 pound smallies pulled more drag than a 8 pound pike. Shit was unreal
>>
>>1111509
I have access to big smallmouths, but it's an hour away and I'm not wasting the time (or gas) to drive an hour every time I want to fish

I don't expect to catch anything casting these lures at night. I'm just trying to kill a couple hours until #2 gets off of work and I can sneak her out for a little bit.

Caught my PB Northern, 9lbs 34". Almost shit my pants when he started pulling. I consider this a miracle fish because my drag just happened to be set perfectly for the fight, I was not prepared to hook up on a fish of this size. Caught on 8lb test with no leader.

>>1111551
I am currently up to 5 phones sacrificed to the water gods.
>>
>>1111570
>>1111551
After my first sacrifice, I stopped bringing my phone to fishing unless I am expecting a phone call from someone. Fuck picture of catch I guess
>>
>>1106851
no one's given me shit, but down in florida, peacock bass is good all around, but Largemouth bass was kinda mushy in the larger sizes that we caught.
