    MileHighAirgunner, if the trip was as successful as picture shows then all that fish would almost pay for the trip! It looks like it would be a really good idea and a money saving shopping trip…whilst having fun. I can only imagine having a day like that day in your picture. Intenseaty22 what a great thing to have a lake nearby the apartment where you grew up. Thanks for sharing all the pictures everyone!

    Yes. Thanks for sharing also. rainbow on a fly rod are fun. that was a nice one. I'm not very good with a fly rod but don't do it enough. Have you fished Flathead before? Is the lake trout finishing there any good? My sister graduated from MSU-Northern in Havre. Only been to Montana twice. Once when dad and I drove through it to go fishing in Saskatchewan when I was about 14 and again when my sister graduated college. 

    Love the bass too. luckybuckeye that is a nice hawg. bet he was good eating. Shame you didn't go to Alaska when your cousins lived there but there's still time. They let you in even if you don't know anyone there. You'll be glade you did if you go. You got the great lakes not all that far away. I know someone who lives in Wisconsin and he fishes Lake Michigan. He's landed some nice salmon and lake trout. 

    No Wally's yet? Someone's got to have some awesome pics of some giant walleye. Com'n, don't be holding out on us. It's impolite not to share. 

    Intenseaty22 has got me wanting to fish warmer waters. Grouper is pretty darn tasty. love them lobster also. Did some shrimping one time on one of my Alaskan trips. didn't get much. Hardly a sample really. The itinerary didn't allow for us to leave the pots very long though. still fun. never fished the ocean south of Alaska. Surprised no marlin or sailfish pics either. And tuna! Who's been tuna fishing? That's definitely on the bucket list for me as well.

    @milehighairgunner I have caught more shrimp in one night than many people in a lifetime (disclaimer: I was out with a commercial fisherman, a good friend. But it counts, I put the work in) No pictures though. Have caught huge Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) & tons of them too! But don’t have those pictures on hand. Same for Sailfish, 2 hour fight, left my knuckles bleeding, got off the hook as we were about to bring into boat, but have caught smaller ones that made it to my smoker (makes excellent dip!) The pictures I posted have some Skip Jack Tunas, but have caught Yellow Fin as well, again, no pics, same goes for the Snappers & the Wahoo (omg! Wahoo!!!) & pretty much almost anything you can find in the S. Atlantic.

    😂 Those are Florida Spiny Lobster. Hunting for & catching them is the most fun you can have in the water. I’m gonna post a pic or two of some lobster cooking. Gotta look for them.

    MileHighAirgunner, yes my brother and I fish Flathead lake a lot. There’s huge lake trout there and Lake Superior Whitefish too. The native trout there is the bull trout, they are protected in a lot of the waters in Montana. The Lake Superior Whitefish are really fun to catch. You jig for them up to 60 feet down. They are really good eating and fun to catch. They can get up to 7 pounds, but 3 to 4 pounds is more common. I’m going to ask my brother to send me pictures of them and I’ll post them. One early morning just at first light we were jigging for them and I was reeling one in when a huge lake trout grabbed the whitefish, you could see scales coming off of the poor whitefish and finally as I reeled both of them close to the boat the trout let go of the whitefish. Really cool to see in the early morning light, very savage! That’s definitely some good looking gourmet cooking intenseaty22! Do you trap them giant crawdads or snorkel and grab? I’m just so incredibly jealous! Thanks for sharing everyone!

    Thanks. That, for better or worse, is bittersweetly in my past. Would have probably never discovered airgunning otherwise. I’m landlocked in GA now, & don’t get out much. I pray one day I can travel around and do a little of everything. 

    Only comercial fishermen can trap. I usually went freediving for the Lobster. You find them under corals and ledges in tropical regions. Then you coax them out with a “tickle” stick. Can probably be found on YouTube. You have a net on your other hand and trap them in. They must be caught alive and measured. Huge fines otherwise. They can also be caught with snares, just never killed until you get them to land.

    Mostly rockfish and Lingcod. That's my son's first fishing trip since his injury.

    Her's a couple from way back in 2000-that's my son's first Albacore!

    That's a California Halibut-gaff mark is from a previous hookup-imagine losing that fish!

    Losing that halibut would terrible, they must have almost had it when it flopped off the gaff. What a nice fish. For some reason 2000 doesn’t sound that long ago, but it’s 20 years OMG.
