Glad to have you on board.  I am a really old fart here in SWMO.  I don't know much about fishing but I do enjoy this forum.

We fish lakes around Henderson and Madisonville Kentucky, and Blue Grass strip pits near Evansville Indiana. Iím running a 1542.
BTW we like pictures so be sure to post up your catches.

I actually found this site looking for a place I could buy a bunch of old worms called Mann's Manipulators that my dad used to use.

Hello all, 

I stumbled on to you from a fishing forum search.    I've just started getting back into fishing.   So I need help finding good local places.
For now I feel stuck.  I'd like to get out there, but don't know where.   Like the user name I chose I snagged a limb.   ???

Any suggestions?

Jim here, in Floyd, Va.
Retired from industrial construction as a pipefitter/welder. My favorite activities are casting, handloading, shooting and mentoring my two adopted grandsons.

I must admit a serious character flaw, though. I enjoy terrorizing the Bluegill population of the local farm ponds!

 As if that's not bad enough, I practice genocide on the Largemouth Bass.

It's just shameful, I tell ya' !

That's AWESOME Jim! You can't ask for a better retirement and you have 2 great looking grandkids to teach fishing to.
Now that you're retired, you can post some nice fish pics for those of us that work during the day and envy you at night...LOL! Enjoy you're retirement!

Jack, Thanks for the shout out. I am newly located to Florida. Bass fishing is about the only thing that gets me out of bed.  My 7 yr. old grandson is my primary partner and he always reminds me to bring the net. Let's talk about fishing.
Bass don't eat what they don't see.

Hi all, my name is David I live in Australia. I am planning a fishing trip to the states to fish for bass. I am a 95% lure fisherman. Salt and freshwater. 27 years old and looking for advice and ideas as I have never been to the states.

Any help would be amazing

Cheers Dave
