I've been drooling over the idea of a native michigan tank for quite a while now though

It's hard to throw fish like this back

I think that'll be amazing but it will be hard keeping the tank healthy if you're using wild caught fish.

Oh yea, fishing is what got me into fish keeping!

Mostly freshwater catch and release. Ocean fishing I will keep if I am going for Tuna for sure!

I love to go fishing with my son (he's 6 almost 7). Usually we just go for some panfish or largemouth here in MD. For the most part, it's all catch and release but I'm not opposed to eating what we catch if it's worth it. I'll have to find the picture when my son caught a 3+lb largemouth after just turning 5...we cast the line out for him and he did all the rest up to taking the hook out! Great times and great memories...

I also go hunting for deer/turkey to fill the freezer, can't wait to start taking my kids when they are older.

For me, outdoor activities like fishing and hunting is all about finding peace. There's nothing like being in the woods or on the water and watching the sun come up.

I make my livin' by other people fishin' I make fishing lures for saltwater but my own for freshwater. ( Please don't ask to buy, I don't sell direct to the public. ) I've fished every state on the east coast from Maine to Florida as well as Texas, Oregon, California, Alaska, Bahamas, Mexico, and Belize. I fish more for sport than for food but when you have noting else to eat, freshly caught fish is manna from heaven.
What most people don't realize about fishing is that the best fishing places anywhere are those where no one else is or has been. You see the beauty of the landscape of the world because it has been untouched by the human hand. I'll take a mosquito filled woods to a concrete jungle any day of the week.

I like to fly fish. Here in Colorado we have some beautiful rivers in the mountains and along the front range that make great fly fishing locations. Ill also toss a texas rig in some ponds around here and catch a few bass or walleye every now and then as well. Not big on eating the fish I catch so I always put em' back!

Lol that's exactly how I feel. I would definitely take a mosquito filled woods over a concrete jungle but only for about 12 hours then I'll get homesick and want a burrito from chipotle. 😂
