Do you enjoy fishing?

Wherever you are, whether it’s at your sticks-and-bricks home or out in your RV near a beautiful lake, do you enjoy fishing? Do you carry a fishing pole with you on your travels?

If you had to guess, how much do you think the most expensive fishing lure ever created was? If you’re guessing $100, you’re way off. MacDaddy Fishing Lures created the Million Dollar Lure – a 12-inch trolling lure made with 3 pounds of gold and platinum encrusted with 100 carats of diamonds and rubies. And it costs what it’s called: $1 million. Woooooow!

Do you enjoy fishing? Please tell us in the poll below. Thanks!

As a 30+ years of being a lifetime Member of Trout Unlimited & Federation of Flyfishers ( now FFI)… I fish whenever I can & wherever I can.. There is nothing like wading in a river or creek fishing & looking at all of the beautiful grandeur of Mother Nature.. & sometimes catching a fish to release….Also in helping to pick up the garbage left behind by Other People, fisher folks or not, WE are in this together. Pick up your garbage & take it with you….

My Dad and I fished a lot together. Occasionally we even caught a fish!. I had a customer that raised trout, so I got a few each week or so. Now I only fish at the grocery store!

Started with my grandfather when I was a little kid. Did some with my father and in my adult life. Just haven’t had a chance to use my boat in a few years.

I did when I was a kid. my grandpa and i were out on the lake nearly every night except weekends. I haven’t wet a line in maybe 50-years. I still have my rods and tackle boxes, though.

If you are tired of the news and the stress of daily happening – rent a boat and go fishing! When waiting – patiently and quietly on a lake – for the fish to bite – that is all you think about! Or maybe some memories of days gone by with Dad or whom ever…… and then a little nibble or jerk on the line – then your thoughts switch to – “I wonder what it is?”

I really enjoy fishing but don’t hardly get to go anymore. The issue is that my DW doesn’t understand that it is called fishing not catching. LOL

Enjoy fishing and have been fortunate to fish all over the world during my military career. Now retired I plan to do a lot more as well as hunting.

I went bait fishing with my dad as a kid. My partner of 15 years introduced me to fly fishing, and I love it! We “catch and release” trout on lakes and rivers. We keep some salmon and steelhead. All of our camping trips involve fishing. Going for a two week trip to a pristine lake in northern Washington in the middle of May for dry fly fishing. BLM boondocking. It is my favorite trip of the year.

Haven’t fished in close to 50 years. In my teens I loved to fish. Took our kids twice and they did everything but fish.

I Enjoy salt water fishing very much. Being raised in Miami Beach, I used to go almost every weekend along the sea walls and Haulover Pier. When I moved to NYC with my mother, I hated it. Then when I was older and able, we bought a house and boat in Chincoteague VA and then a house in Punta Gorda Fl. Now fish (catch and release) mostly unless we want fish for dinner. Sold the boat in VA now have a 22’ center console with a 200 outboard. Life is good!

Used to but everything is so over fished. My daughter has a cottage on a large lake. Just about everyone coming by is fishing.usually toward the bank. Ive had tears in my pontoon cover ,lures in the trees ,lures on the dock.the fish are only 6 inches long and those that allow themselves to get caught committed suicide,too small to keep and clean. More people fishing than catching. I get my fish at a restaurant. No stink, no license required.

Fish as often as possible, Own two boats a Lund 1875 Impact XS with a Mercury 150 and a little Sea Eagle for mountain lake fishing in the summer. Also, my DW loves fishing more than I DO! LOL!

I had to say no because I’ve only put a line in the water myself once in probably the last 50 years. I have accompanied the grandkids fishing but DW usually is the one with a license. As an adolescent I fished every day in the summer, sometimes multiple times as it just meant walking down to a nearby creek or pond. Guess I just got fished out.

I do enjoying fishing. As long as my husband baits the hook (live bait) and takes the fish off the hook.😬 I usually catch more than him and bigger ones, which makes him even more aggravated with me😂.

I’d love to hunt and fish but found that I don’t have the patience for either. Half an hour of sitting along a bank or in a blind is my absolute limit! It’s only fun for the first 15 minutes and that’s if it’s a nice day.

I gave up hunting and fishing mainly because of all the rules and limited areas available. Seasons, species, types of equipment, special areas, etc., you now need to study law to participate.

+1 re: all the rules especially those specific to the location.

I don’t care to, unlike my brothers. I don’t hunt neither except in the grocery store. MN state parks are allowing license free fishing on all waters that border state park lands though.

It gets too expensive going from State to State. Need a Federal license… Or better yet, no license.

Bob P (@guest_124046)

I love to eat them but I leave the catching to others, my fishing expeditions include a 8” Rainbow Trout in CO, and an 8 oz Cat Fish in TN, neither of which was worth the effort.

Tom (@guest_124043)

I don’t fish often, mostly because I don’t like to clean the fish. I don’t hunt for the same reason. No issue with people fishing and hunting, just preparing for food is not a activity I enjoy
