i've been driving that far for some steelhead action , i have a trout stream a stones throw out my front door and quite a few lakes and rivers all within a few miles from my house . i have a whole bunch of state land around here too . my wife picked out the house , i signed the papers without ever looking at it , i'm one lucky fella ! fishing and hunting , hunting and fishing , too bad work has to keep me busy when i could be having fun ! i love fishing below the dams the best , i guess it's because the fish strike so hard , even a gill will hit like a northern . man it's the best !
Hi ya'll. I am soooo lucky. I live 10 minutes from Lake Guntersville on the Tennessee River in north Alabama. Guntersville dam area provides some of the best of all types freshwater fish. Then I have the Coosa River 30 minutes in other direction with great catfishing and bass fishing. 45 minutes away is Weiss Lake, crappie capitol of the world. I have other major fisheries within hour drive I haven't even tried. My favorite, Gulf Shores, is a 5 hr drive, but a poor man like me can't go too often. I won't complain though with all the local choices.
25 to 50 miles are the local lakes, but I go farther to fish Canada and North Dakota. Flagmanonice----------
159.2 THE FOLLOWING SATURDAY , 0 DURING THE WEEK AND THEN 227.8 ON SUNDAY 3-30-03
158.6 round trip on friday , to lake huron , steelhead fishing
A few weeks ago I drove 300 miles for two ays of ice fishing (to little bay de noc). Fishing is worth driving any distance, just wish I would have caught some fish.
my last trip saturday was 187.4 miles round trip , sunday was 92.2 miles round trip .
I travel about an hour usually in the winter, but in the summer it depends on what I want to fish for. The furthest I have travelled just to fish is four hours (about 250 km drive) and it was worth it!
with spring coming up , i thought this would be a good one to ask again . i concider myself to be a regular fisherman , traveling anywhere in the state to fish . i go about 100 feet for the nearest trout stream and less than (so far ) 300 miles ( one way ) for a few hours of fishing the bigger lakes . i think ssor will out do me this spring in a single trip , but i'm going to keep track this year to see how many miles i put under my belt combined .
Usually from 5 - 25 miles but have ventured to Reelfoot, Mountain Home Arkansas, and Destin, Fla. (sea), Lake Shelbyville in Ill.
Hello to All,
As I live in Europe, Germany to be specific, I am willing to travel almost anywhere to Enjoy this SPORT. My normal venue is 35 Miles one way and I am out during the Summer almost every Saturday. I have waters that are closer, but find the solitude of this area more enjoyable. I am not a fan of river fishing where there is a large amount of boat traffic, but try it once in a while anyway. I have able to fish many different areas and a couple of countries since I have been back this time. I hope to make the time for at least a few more before we depart. I am looking forward to returning to the USA again to apply my trade as they say at home. Good Luck to ALL and keep the Sport alive.
wasnt an option, so I made my own lol
Lookie See what the kids are up to.
