  10. With all of the lines available, which line for spinning, 2lb to 8 lb? Not having memory and small diameter being important.
  11. 01/01/07 Does the room come with you guiding one day?
  12. If you "lip" trout and are having a good day your thumb will be hamburger.
  13. Windy points (wind blowing in to them) with jig and twister. Anchor with wind to your back and cast with the wind. Lift anchor to move.
  14. Just a note. Tipping should be based on effort, not nessesarly on the quantity of fish caught.
  15. When I hear folks that fish with a guide referred to as the "pay to play boys" it is not only degrading to the clients but I feel it cheapens the image of a proffesional guide. It has been my experance that when fishing a new area, if I get a guide for the first day, I can usually catch fish on my own there after. I find that a good guide can be more valuable than any fishing equipment, and may just turn out to be a friend.
  16. I have seen reports of wiper/whites below Rend in ILL. Anyone fished it? Thanks....
  17. Just bumping the other topic down. It was smut from a spammer.

  19. I use Rockbridge. My wife and I are blessed with 2 children ages 5 and 9. I take each one of them on a 1 on 1, dad only trip once a year. It was my 9 year old daughters 4th time down, and my 5 yesr old boys 2nd. First and formost, it is the time spent 1 on 1. It re-enforces how important each child is to me. Secondly, there is so much action, they can actually get tired of catching fish. When their arms start getting sore, it is time to hit the pool, put together legos, read or eat. Yes, for an expieranced fisherperson, it is like shooting fish in a barrel. Most of their guests do not fall in that catigory and may only catch 1 fish an hour...but guess what...they get to succeed and are proud of their accomplishment. I have made 2 trips there in the past several weeks. My 9 year old caught and landed a 4 lb bow and my 5 yr old a 2.9lb. We average 5 plus landed fish an hour with an average weight of 2 lb. We use 2 lb. test, and mash down the barbs, and do not use a net, so the kids loose quite a few in addition to the ones that are landed.. They are learning how to play large fish on light line, not to reel against the drag, and to keep the rod tip up. More importantly, they are learning the important stuff. That it is not the end of the world if a fish comes off, how to respect another mans water and space, and that it is great to offer to help the other people. There is enough space on the stream where they can be kids too. Whether it is looking for crawdads, or even controled rock thowing. (not around other people). The staff is very kid friendly and let the kids help feed the fish in the hatcheries. They are a large family owned "resort" with lodging and a restaurant. The food is quality and incredable, it is easy to gain weight while staying there. No, I am not he owner nor do I own stock in the place. It is a great place to take the kids, teach values, and PUT THEM ON FISH.
  20. It is my belief that it is hard to put a price tag on vacation time. Have you thought about finding a guide for your first day down. They can usually put you on fish and show you the patterans that are working that day (night), and then you can fish on your own there on out. A good guide wants to make your trip a good one. In addition to being fun it is kind of a ego thing for them to help you out.
  21. 6 bedroom 7 bath indoor pool comercial kitchen on 8 acres 2 miles from the park see at http://www.16161highway64.com
  22. Headed down to Akumal the end of May. Fished it last year with great sucess but the equipment was not quality. Anyone been out with a good captain and good equipment? Need a recomendation if possable for dorado and sails. Akumal is between Playa De Carmin and Tulum about 1.5 hours s. of Cancun. Will be down there 10 days with my family and want to fish at least 4 days.
  23. About 10 years ago I used to fish it hard. Yesterday was my first time back in 10 years. I just had to go with the storms that were blowing through. It used to be that the day-break bite was best and the least crowded. I have never been there on the weekend and do not think I would now, just to crowded. I always stopped at a local tackel shop just to get the hot colors, and try to buy something from them. I heard that the eye and sauger bite is hot during low light and tipping with a minnow. I'll be going again soon, mid-week and cloudy. I have a job that lets be be very flexable and it is close enough to go for just a couple of hours. By the way, it was your post that reminded me about it. Let me know if you go, or if your aware of any other spots close by, especially if it is kid friendly, below the spill-way is not real kid friendly.
  24. Just got back from below the dam at Carlyle (Ill). Only fished about 3 hours in the rain. Caught about a dozen whites (males about a pound) and hooked and lost (hook bent) a lunker walleye. Three gates partially opened. Chartruse was the color today, both tube and twister 1/16 oz tandem rigged. Ill non res. 24.50. Only an hour from Kirkwood.
