I'm not familiar with the species of your beautiful catch.

Years ago, I was stationed at McClellan AF Base, Northern Calif. We fished reservoirs, rivers, and Pacific Ocean. But now we live in Lancaster County, Penna. We enjoy charter fishing out of Cape May, NJ and Chesapeake Bay out of Havre De Grace, MD. Sea Bass (stripers) are genuine trophies on the dinner plate!

We used to have Red Fish, Red Drum (sciaenops ocellatus) off of
the Jersey Coast. There are still a few around now and then, but you have
to go South if you want to catch them now.

NICE! Where ya at? I grew up in south FLA, we used to catch a lot of snook and redfish. Im bound for FL nest week, taking the fly rod and am going to do my best to snag a red and a snook on the fly. The small mouth here in WV arent as big as the stuff back in FL, but are still a lot of fun on the fly.

Great photos and very nice fish. But being as those are the first two posts by the captain of what appears to be a charter service, this begins to smell like a popular canned meat product.

In my younger days, my brother in law and I used to spend a lot of time in the Louisiana marshes catching redfish and spectaled trout. Lots of fun.

We're getting a few salmon in the Sacramento River right now. Stripers, sturgeon and catfish the rest of the time. Get a few shad in the spring. Here's a photo of a nice brown I caught in the Arc Dome Wilderness of Nevada when I was supposed to be hunting mulies.

What does the original post have to do with guns, hunting, or 2nd Amendment issues? Is it just advertising in disguise?

We have members post pictures of fish once in a while in "My Neck of the Woods" and I think that's where I'll move this thread.

Fishing is a great thing to do...when you're waiting for hunting seasons to roll around again! :D

I agree, I just don't care to eat them, but fishing from the bank, and popping an ocasional squirrel with the air rifle while waiting for a nibble can get intresting, at least I can have something to take home to eat. I release all fish, as I don't eat them, and can see no reason to waste food. If there's someone there that would like them when I catch one, they can have it as long as it is legal size. Not saying that I won't eat one, just that I don't care for fish. At least I know my family won't go hungry as long as I can fish and hunt.

Is there a fish in that last picture????:p

I'll be the first to admit that I fish more than I ever deer hunt....don't know if that is good, or bad...


I was never a big fisherman until the Mrs. & I bought this place in NH. I'm only about 500 yards from a 150 acre pond, that's 45+ foot deep, and loaded with smallmouth, pickerel, Trout and lots of varieties of panfish.
Mostly a spincaster, I've of late [2 years ago] been self taught in fly fishing.
It is as hard as being self taught at golf, but surely more fun. Went out and bought a 10 foot recreational kayak, which is a helluva fishing platform. [they do not allow engines of any kind in our pond;) ]


Here is an average sized pickerel I took out of the pond, and my best buddy Jim with the catch of the day....




Makes me laugh every time!

Hey Mike,,,If you want to delete it,,it wont bother me at all. I just thought most of the people on the site would like it.
I do a LOT of photography, but I don't think I should post anymore fishing pictures..................

There's no need to delete your thread or pictures. The thread is fine. Sure it does not fall absolutely under shooting/hunting, but we all do other things in our lives.

The reason for the uproar about your pics/ info is that in the past we have had vendors come on and hawk their services and wears on the board without first checking with the Board's owner, Marshall Stanton. we've also had a slew of spammers slopping their ****....that is the reason for the replies.

In this Mod's eyes, I do not see one syllable posting advertizing your business or services, nor a link to the same. Therefore the thread can stand.

As long as you clear it with Marshall first if you wish to advertise, then things'll be ok.

I once caught a drum fish on vacation in southern VA. Heckuva fight.

Thanks Chris.
How big was your red drum?
I have plenty pic's of some 46" big ones!


not nearly as big as those, more the size of an offshore NJ bluefish. Say 24" long, maybe 30" at a stretch, but thich, and round, like a largemouth bass.

I gave up on saltwater fishing many moons ago. Too many sea-sick days, [probably from the previous night's activities :eek: ] and too much travel from home to location of boat.
I only started fresh water fishing again about two years ago. From the kayak, it's alot of fun, and very relaxing. I've fallen asleep on the pond more than I've trolled for fish.:p


That a G23, or a G30???
Tru-glo TFO sights???

Its a 21 (.45Cal) The scope mount is a joke, I took it off shortly after I put it on. I have bad eyesight is why I put it on there.

And yes,,,Those are Tru-glo TFO sights
