Welcome to the site, Abel.


Panfish and Bass for me ... since there's no trout in my area (Florida) and I don't like salt water for a plethora of reasons.

Barbed hooks rule!

Howdy Abel, SMB and trout are my usual targets, but some days the sunnies are fun.

Back home, Indiana, its usually bluegills and smallmouth. Taking a trip in a few weeks for trout in the Driftless.

This week it's saltwater in Treasure Island Florida. The red tide didn't make it this far.

Really, if it swims, its good.
