      Pretty simple actually, seasoning salt, cracked pepper, olive oil, and a bit of garlic butter. I put the seasoning salt and pepper on the fish about twenty minutes or so before it hits the fryer.

      I've got the fishing itch again. Went fishing in a fully stocked pond that nobody else fishes in the neighborhood my parents live in-- in Florida. Guess what? Bass get huge.



      Caught it with a Rapala top water jointed lure. Unfortunately, my pole is down there on my dad's boat, so I'm looking to pick one up. I like the triggered open reel like this:



      I've been told it's not a good design and to stay away.

      I'm hoping to stay under $100 for rod, reel and line. I live near a Dick's Sporting Goods, a Gander Mountain, and can order from Cabela's. I'm looking for a good pole for bass and panfish.

      Recommendations?

      Where in Florida? I'm a big fan of some of the local rod & reel shops we have here. Mine just recently went out of business and it reminded me of how I really need to do a better job of supporting the little guys. The 19 year old kid with the blowout haircut that stops folding t-shirts long enough to tell you where the fishing equipment is doesn't seem to be worth the business but the old man in the trucker hat (like, a REAL one) that knows every spot around is usually worth the extra $5.

      I agree. Unfortunately for me (and I've looked!), those places don't exist around here anymore.


      They live in Fort Myers, about 5 minutes from Sanibel Island.

      there's nothing wrong with spinning reels like the one you posted, not sure why someone told you it was a bad design they'll allow you to throw some lighter lures and tackle than a bait cast reel would. you should be able to find a usable combo deal (rod, reel, line) at gander for $100-135.

      Shimano makes some great reels for someone on a budget. I've pulled most monster fish in with my $50 Shimano Sahara then I care to remember.

      Excellent, and affordable recommendation!!^^^^
      Paired with an inexpensive Shimano reel you should slay them.

      Ended up with this:




      And a Gander Mountain Guide Series medium action graphite rod. It was on sale and I bought a "no-matter-what-you-do-to-it-we'll-take-it-back" warranty, too.

      $101 out the door with the pole. Can't wait to get near some water!

      Caught this beauty and 3 "regular" black bass this morning.



      I kinda wish I got more close up pics of this, it was really nice.

      .. to put its size into perspective, I'm about 6'1" 265lbs and it was as long as I am wide across the chest.

      It was my first, basically got a spot on the bank right near his bed and just kept hitting it and hitting it with a live shiner. He'd knock it off, or kick it, or nudge it and finally he got mad enough that he grabbed it and BOOM. Fought real well too.

      We had a cold winter about two years ago (multiple nights in the high 20s-low 30s inland) and it killed off a lot of the tropical stuff (Iguanas, parrots, etc). But my friend caught one last week and another today, then I caught this guy so it looks like they're coming back.

      And if you do fall in love with flyfishing, go out and splurge on a high-quality rod. You'll be amazed at how different it is from the entry-level rods.

      --Chuck--
      Got the same Redington combo outfit Neb mentioned above. Couldn't turn down the deal. If I "outgrow" it I will pass it on to my sons. Took it out on the lawn to practice casting after watching a couple of vids online

      Whaddaya know? It's not nearly as hard as I thought! In about 5 minutes I was able to cast accurately up to about 60' ...even into the wind. As stated in the videos a small loop is key to reducing wind resistance.

      I wish I had found a reasonably priced four piece so it would fit in my white water kayak. I also managed to tie a couple of overhand knots into the end of the tippet while casting. Guess I should have added a fly after all ...I was afraid of losing it to the lawn

      I can see another addiction worming its way into my life...

      With all those streams up there filled with brookies, I'm surprised it took you this long to pick up a fly rod
