Do you fish saltwater, freshwater, or both? What is your favourite setup?
Despite living in Florida, I fish freshwater - have only saltwater fished once. I fish exclusively with a fly rod. My flies of choice are either a chartreuse woolly bugger for below surface or black popper for surface.
I fish both, but prefer saltwater. I now live in Denver and there is good trout, walleye and decent bass fishing here and in the mountains. Mostly trout for Colorado. I use Shakespeare Uglystick rods. When I visit relatives back East we go deep sea fishing on the partyboats, mainly off New Jersey and catch a ton of large bluefish. I like Shimano and Penn reels for saltwater and Daiwa, Quantum and Shimano for freshwater. I prefer live bait to lures but whatever works at the time. I always have some Daredevil lures as I need them.
Regarding saltwater, when I have gone bluefishing and the fish are not taking the cut up bunker or squid, the boat captain has had us switch over to silver spoons with a green rubber leader hook holder attached to it for jigging and the bluefish nail it.
I fish freshwater ponds and streams.
My favorite setup is simple, hook, swivel, weight, nightcrawler.
Great results and not much work involved.
Give an ultra light rod and a handful of in-line spinners. Throw me on a Trout stream and I'm happy any day!
Salt water. I have never been fresh water fishing in my life though I may take it up some day. There are some wonderful fishing villages in northern NSW, Australia where I like to fish from a beach, a river or off the rocks. A beach rod and worms or squid for bait.
I love in-shore and off-shore fishing in salt-water. I've only gone bone fishing with fly in the Bahama's one time but would love to go back! Salt water is great because there is such a variety and you can troll or go to the bottom depending on the conditions and what you might like for dinner.
Fresh water for me is fly rod time. I really like poking around the edge of small farm ponds for big bream and bass with a popper. Mountain fishing for trout with a fly is also a great way to spend a weekend. I really feel like a day fishing isn't counted against you in your life total!
I used to fish salt water a lot but have not in several years. My favorite set up is fishing with three poles. One with a plastic bait, one with a spoon or spinner bait , and one with a live minnow or worms. I have been successful over the years and why stop doing what works for you? My favorite is bass fishing and a close second is Crappie fishing, Cat fishing is a lot of fun and I try it sometimes with cut bait, liver and worms. I no longer fish from a boat, although I have done my fair share. I have caught the most and biggest fish from a dock or a convenient lake bank. I love to fish just before a front moves in and usually have the best luck. Early morning and late evening have been my best times to catch big fish. My friends and I have always said that we would rather fish than eat, and eating is a lot of fun, too.
I fish from the banks too. I try to go later in the evening also to catch the bigger fish. I only have 1 r&r so I have to change lures. I just caught a 10 lb channel catfish the other day at about 8:15 in the evening. It put up a good fight too.
My favorite saltwater fishing has always been off of the coast of Southern California, in the deep water off of the islands for tuna, or in the kelp for bass. Freshwater I'd have to say would be in the clear, fast moving streams or in farm ponds. Farm ponds that don't get fished regulary yield monster bass.

Do you go fishing? Do you eat what you catch?At this time of year I just love to catch big catfish out of the local rivers and I turn them into delicious deep fried catfish nuggets. With homemade slaw, home fries, and my delicious homemade hush-puppies you have a meal you won't soon forget.

In the U.S. since the 1990s it's been a common practice to add salt to freshwater aquariums to prevent some diseases and balance osmotic pressure. it's been added for so many years that some freshwater fish get sick and die without it. Do you add salt?
