    I recently got into fishing and wondered if anyone here fishes as well.

    What rod/reel do you use?
    I use a Sedona 2500FD reel and an UglyStick medium action rod
    I use 10lbs Trilene line

    What do you usually fish for?
    Around my parts, bass always.

    Whats your favorite baits to use?
    I love Gary Yamamoto worms. Watermelon/Pumpkin Seed
    Various KVD Strike King and Boo-Yah spinner baits
    Zoom Brush hog in Pumpkin Seed

    What sunglasses do you use?
    I have to have RX lenses and I'm pulling the trigger soon. Too bad Costa RXs are about $500. Looking at the Double Hauls.

    Whats your biggest catch?
    Surprisingly, mine is a 7lbs catfish but that was long ago before I really got into fishing.
    Biggest bass is like 3-3.5lbs

    Post some pics!!!!

    These are just recent photos. Only because I just started taking pictures of some fish I catch.

    I find live bait (nightcrawlers, crayfish, etc.) works best for bass fishing.

    I used to fish quite a bit but have 2 kids now and don't get too much anymore. I live near the Suwannee River in Florida so I normally fish for largemouth bass, Suwannee bass, or red bellies (redbreast sunfish).

    Only at heart. I have treasured memories of trolling for blues off Cape Lookout with the old man. Didn't have to catch a thing, it was still priceless.

    My interest has been in fly fishing more than any other method lately. I find it really relaxing and rewarding due to how much skill it truly takes. I'm an Orvis kind of guy, and enjoy their fly fishing products.
