I was sitting here, thinking, wondering, how many types of fish I have actauly taken the time to read and educate myself on. I came up with 8, the 2 newest being Salmon and Steelhead.

Then I also had to take into consideration winter versus summer fishing, then breaking that down into prespawn, spawn and postspan periods-
it can get a bit overwhelming

The reason for all of this is, the amount of unlearning I've had to do, in order to learn and understand steelhead and Salmon


What species have you studied and chased after?

"Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." - Henry David Thoreau

I went fishing the other day, and I caught a spiritual experience! The sucker was huge!

Well, I can't say I've "studied" about any one species extensively, but have learned a great deal about many of the trout and char family. I've always been interested in anything that swims with fins and have dabbled at catching most of them from time to time, in fresh or salt water. I've been fortunate live around the country and catch all kinds of cool fish. There is so much to learn, I take it one fishing trip at a time. Hopefully one day when I'm an old fart, I'll know enough to be dangerous.

I got the chance this past weekend to re-learn how to fish for one of my
favorite things ... skunk! We fished for about six hours out of Depoe Bay on
Sunday and only brought home the skunk. I blame my 19 y.o. He put bad ju-ju on
the boat so he didn't have to clean fish and clean the decks after a sucessful trip!
:grin: :rolleyes: :grin: :rolleyes: :grin:

Tried that and got such a headache I decided to give up. Just tie on a worm and if it catches something that look ok, I eat it.

Always think about that guy who ate the first crab.

I was down on the clack yesterday with a friend and mentioned this post to him, and well, after a long talk, things got even deeper-Not only was it types of fish, but with seasonal changes, winter habbits versus summer, Lakes versus river systems, prespawn, spawn, postspawn-- needsless to say, i think I'm going a little crazy--
