There doesn’t seem to be a current thread for all things fishing so I thought I’d start a new thread. I know there are some avid fishermen here.
A couple of questions if you don’t mind and feel free to talk about anything and everything related to fishing in here.
I’m pretty new to fishing for real and I plan to mostly fish freshwater for bass & trout this year. What are everyone’s favorite lures/setups? Do you prefer live bait?
I’m headed down to the Outerbanks NC later this year and would like to do some saltwater fishing. I’ve been told you need a saltwater rod/reel is that true (I understand a lot of it has to do with being able to cast past where waves are breaking)? I could use some rod/reel suggestions for saltwater. How about bait for saltwater fishing? I’ll be there mid summer so it looks like these are the sorts of fish in season (Blue marlin, white marlin, dolphin, wahoo, cobia, king mackerel, bluefish, tuna, flounder, snapper, grouper, spanish mackerel, & croaker).
