Love the fishing stories. I live in Vancouver and am an avid flyfisher. We have the best flyfishing in the interior of the province. Over 8000 lakes to choose from.

Nothing better than being on a small lake, no one else around, relaxing and trying to figure out what bugs the are eating. Also tie my own flies.

Have always wanted to try flyfishing in Florida, here it is quite good. Ever tried that type of fishing...

Bass competition has men competition, women competition and mixed competition. The larger the entry the bigger the prize, more men fish.
A number of years ago over 5000 men paid $1,000.00 per team of two and entered a 1 million dollar tag fish contest, with a total of 20 million $ in tags. This was a TVA tournament. Two fishermen were interviewed on radio before the starting time, one was asked what he would do with the million dollars if he caught the fish. He said (this is the truth) one half he would spend on wild women and booze and the other half he would spend foolishly.

One of the main reasons is that most men "control" the money - and a nice bass boat (Ranger) and tow vehicle can costs upwards of $60-70K. I have fished several ESPN/BASS tournaments as a amateur and find the pros to be true gentlemen. BASS has started a women's circuit - however the payouts are nothing like the men's tournament trail. Also - there aren't very many companies that will sponsor a female.

Fishing every chance I get - and buying my boat and tow vehicle this year! TIght lines!! (PS - just returned from a fishing trip in Juneau - it was fabulous...the salmon are great!)

I promise this is my last fishing story(maybe).
I was fishing in a trout contest and missed cast,my lure hit the bank, as I pulled it into the water(about 5 inches) a fish hit and after a life time I finally landed it, I took it to weigh in , 9 pounds 11 oz Rainbow. I had another hour to fish, I put my prize on a stringer,started the boat, after about 50 feet the engine stopped, my stringer wrapped around the prop, what was remaining of my trout would not cover a hook. I did get a picture and 3 rd. prize but no fish to mount.
(true happenings)
I promise this is the last one. .. A friend bought a (cattle)boat"Queen of the Sea" out of Ports of Call,SP,Ca.I helped him fix it up, I fished free that year. On one trip we were off Whites point and all of a sudden thousands of fish around the boat jumped out of the water at the same time. Birds all over the place, In about 50 ft. of water something big hit my line and my deep sea pole bent to the breaking point, I was on the fan tail ,looking straight down into the water fighting whatever hit my live squid, after a few minutes I felt my line go slack and I reeled faster,deep in the water I could see a dark something moving to the surface,I reeled faster and faster, I could not take my eyes off what ever it was, all I could see was something zooming to the surface, I struggled to reel in the line, I was about 10 feet above the water line, looking over the stern I was hypnotized by what ever it was, the closer it got to the surface the bigger and wider it got. It broke surface ,jumped a good 15 ft. out of the water and hit me solid in the forehead,dazed I saw it dive back into the water ,it broke my 50# test.Biggest seal I had ever seen,sure glad it wasn't a great white.... another time We were contracted to catch sharks for Johnson and Johnson Labs, my Buddie brought his BIG shark outfit, I told him if he hooked a shark the would bend his pole double I would cut his line. We caught about 6; 3 to 7 footers,we were going to quit when he hooked something that bent his rod almost to the breaking point, I was "OK" until it was about 10 to 15ft. under the boat, that fish was so strong it created waves that lifted the boat out of the water and dropped it about 3 feet with a slam. I got my knife and cut his line. Boy was he mad until he realized a shark that big shark near a 22 ft. boat , would have made us shark food for sure....
That reminds me of the time a whale almost shoved our twin screw Owens into the rock levy surrounding the Federal Prison at Terminal Island..the guard sounded the alarm for an attempted prison break because of us, and then the time the Navy sent boats out to keep us from fishing near their battleships. .... I Better quit while I'm ahead...

The only lie worth repeating is a good fish story.
One day I was ocean fishing Long Beach,Ca.in my 22ft Sturey and hooked a fish so big it pulled me the 26 miles across the sea to Catalina Island when I had lunch,did some shopping,got backed in the boat and the fish pulled me back to Long Beach, when I got back I cut the line and thanked the fish for saving me $52.00 in fuel cost.When I told my friends about my trip they did not believe me, they knew a round trip to Catalina in my boat would only cost $12.00 in gas.

The outer banks of North Carolina is a great place for surf fishing and charter boat fishing. The drum are running like crazy here now. If you ever get a chance to visit north carolina and like to fish I highly recommend it.
