The Baitshop

Postby Fisherman » Mon Dec 15, 2008 3:17 am

With all the threads starting up I wanted to get one going that focused on the one thing that brings us all here: We love to fish. So grab a cup of coffee and have a seat, time to swap fishin' tales!

Anyone else force their way passed the "You've run aground" areas on some of the lakes yet? Some big bass and pike hang out in these areas. My favorite was tossing a surface frog to a small bass, only to have a huge pike come up out of nowhere and grab it instead! That was great! Since I only had six pound test at the time, it got away, but, that's called a "LDR" where I come from. LDR= "Long Distance Release" heheh.

With the huge selection of lures, fishing rods, realistic lakes and fish behavior, this is the most entertaining and realistic fishing game I have ever played.

Here is my largest bass so far, 19.1 pounds.
I caught him on a rubber frog using the spinning rod with 20 pound line.

That's a great bass, and on my fav lure as well. Topwater rules!

Here's a topwater lure tip: If a fish doesn't pay attention to your lure after casting it into that hotspot, raise the rodtip and use the right mouse button to pop the lure back a foot or two in the air. When it hits the water again it will "reset" the cast, and that fish you're going for may respond in kind!

It's late September on Crystal Lake. The weather is overcast, a bit breezy and the fish are really biting today! Using a shallow running crankbait and a topwater popper, I caught two 9 plus pounders, two 11 plus pounders and a 14.2 lunker, all in a twenty minute period. Since we're buried in two plus feet of snow right now here in Flagstaff, it's great to get in a little fishing!

Eagle lake is a great place to catch pike, I got a 21 pound pike there a few days ago.

just so you guys know if you see a walleye chillin a weedy area its stocked and heres a tip to catch pike on light line set your drag to mid way then whenever the pike pulls off line point your tip towards the water it makes the fish lose balance and you get slack line that you reel up then repeat as many times as it takes you will lose some trust me but it catches you them

Since the laptop/drag control issue has been solved, I decided to register the game on my compaq laptop that I used as a secondary betatest computer. The registration went without a hitch(kudos there, Paul), and I entered into my first bass tournament. I was out on the water avoiding the other boats when I suddenly realized that in my haste to get started, I had neglected to visit the baitshop! That meant I had only my Demo version fishing gear, and six pound test line.
Determined to make the best of it, I doggedly went forth. Despite losing two big bass, I managed a second place finish with four fish weighing 9.4 pounds.

...It was the 2nd day of a two day walleye tourney. The first day had been raining, and I caught two walleye weighing a total of three pounds. Not the best day, but I had finally found a few fish after searching all morning. I went back to the same spot the next day. The clouds had cleared and it was sunny. I had seen a large walleye there, and he was still present. A good 3.6 pounder. Nice that, but as I drifted back along the point, I caught a 15.9 inch, 1.2 pounder. Out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw what seemed to be a school there.
...As a betatester, I had reported a "pod" of bass, all the same size and length. As luck would have it, on the 2nd day of the walleye tournament with .46 left on the clock, I found the walleye "pod". As I fished, they began to break up and scatter. There were about fifty walleye in a small area. I caught ten 15.9 inch, 1.2 pound walleye, two nice bass and a pike in the next .35 clicks. A 1.6 pound walleye was a parting gift. I took second in the tourney. All were caught on a small white jig.
