I had two holes going. I was jigging single tail white and chartreuse jigs and catching the herring on those. The other line was just wrapped around a tip up and had a minnow on a hook - thats how all the perch came about (and pickerel in a better scenario). I caught a gorgeous huge pike on a tip up last year. That was a hoot.

I mostly fish salt water. My family has a house on Galveston Island. We fish for redfish, flounder, & trout, but too often catch a hardhead catfish.

I sailed the Florida keys one time. Trolling, I caught something on my 14" mirror lure that slowed the sailboat to a crawl. It spun my reel almost dry, but when I had to tighten the drag, it popped the lure out. It left teeth holes down the side of the lure. I think it was a large shark, but it got away, so who knows.

My biggest catch is a 5'6" barracuda out of X'cacel beach - Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico. We were fishing for sailfish or Marlins, but hooked that damn barracuda. It gave me a good 45 minute fight, but ate a bullet when it was near the boat.

X'cacel is private beach dedicated to providing government protection for endangered sea turtles. It is near the Tulum ruins. At night, federalizes would stay on the beach watching for poachers. We rescued turtles, pulled up eggs as they dropped and tagged and released baby turtles when they were ready. When we were not working with the turtles, we could scuba, surf, fish, etc.

There was an Indian tracker down there that took a few of us out one night. After waiting silently for a while on the road, we got to see a jaguar cross the road. It was chilling seeing that large cat so close. It was a great trip working with the biologist and tracker. Back then it was dangerous driving the 70km from Cancun. We were told not to go out to the highway at night. But, even with all the federalizes surrounding the beach, I would never go back. Too dangerous.

These are some pictures that are not from me, but is of X'cacel.

biggest was a 22# blue catfish on a 4# ultralight rod. Took forever to get it in. I made about 5 laps around the pond following it, trying to make sure it didn't spool me or break the line. Only reason I had the ultralight rod was I was fishing for bluegill at the time.

Going offshore tomorrow. Opening day of red snapper season. Pretty rough seas, so hope to make the most of the situation and manage a few.

Man a lot has changed since I first made this thread.
I've been catching 100+ lb batrays, 4 ft smooth hound sharks and been getting a ton of calico bass on the boats when I go. I'll try to post some pics later

Caught a sail last week on light tackle. Pretty rare to get a sail 30 miles or so offshore in Texas. 20lb test, Ambassaduer 7000 and the sail went about 85lbs. Released at the boat and he was good to fight another day.

Mauled the red snapper though and those went in the cooler.

 45 lb Kingfish, 23 lb grass carp, 8.5 lb largemouth bass (BIG for northern Illinois), 4.5 foot Barracuda, 3.5 foot Hammerhead Shark,  37 inch Pike. Going to the Keys in January and hope to get back offshore this time, last time was a bust offshore as wind was stupid. One day soon I hope to fish for Goliath Grouper aka a tow truck with fins.

 Manage a fishing lodge in the Chilcotin's in B.C..  Some of the best fishing I have ever experienced.  I don't get to go out as often as I like but have caught 46 in one day.  All on the fly rod also.  The average fish caught in June and July by anglers is anywhere between 20-50 fish per day.  All wild rainbow never stocked.  Unbelievable fishing up here.

I got the fever about a month ago and have been out on the vedder river for the past 4-5 saturdays in a row slaying salmon. I want a big fucking chinook this week, the coho are in there now too. So fucking fun except the crazy crowds in some spots.
