    Yeah, I fish as a hobby.. I have no idea why I haven't been for so long though. I think it's because I just got busier and lazy!

    I go fishing once the summer starts and up until the summer ends.

    So, what is the biggest fish you've ever caught?

    I like to go with a few friends to a river or something and just sit around on the banks with fishing poles with the excuse of "fishing". I think the joy isn't in fishing, but in relaxing under the shade of a tree next to a river. Fishing in a boat seems like it'd get hot.

    You know, you don't have to get a boat in order to fish.

    Though you need a fishing license to fish. Too bad not many actually gives much crap anymore about having one. :p

    at martyn- That's why I bought one of those giant umbrellas to put on my boat during the summer. Or I just sit in a shaded tree area and just fish there, no boat needed. :)

    If you are young enough you can, and I don't think you need one if you are fishing on privately owned land. And a lot of people have like lifetime liscences.

    ok, that's weird though. Probably most of the places I go fishing is owned by privately then. But the places that I go to are sort of connected to main attractions like parks etc. Just right next to eachother..

    I fish with my step-dad as a hobby. I used to fish some local touraments with him, but recently I haven't had much time between school and work. But it is definitely worth it to just get away. Biting or not, it's still relaxing.

    Yes, I always have fun when I go fishing, even on days where I catch absolutely nothing.

    I spent whole days fishing with my dad from 6 at sunrise until 6 at sunset. On some days, I don't even get 1 bite, but I enjoy my time spent fishing greatly.

    Years ago, my uncle would take me, my dad, and my aunt's family to Big Bear's Gregory Lake for some rainbow trout catching. :amuse

    Ah, I miss those fishing days spending time with my dad and my relatives.

    I go fishing as a Hobby and just to get away from it all.

    I like being alone while I'm fishing, and I don't have to catch anything for it to be a good time.

    it's the active, fun fishing, not that i don't like line's or anything, your spoused to be a diver, and trained a bit, then get a lisinces, then train some more and become a deep sea diver like me, but NEVER try to dive before training, your body won't take the pressure and turns shit, after that you can buy a spear gun and go nuts, i'm a free diver, that means i dive without an oxygen mask or diving cloths, but not deep, and i catch me food :)

    That is the craziness. So you just dive underwater, find some fish, launch your spear gun to kill them, and there's your catch?

    Awesome. :amuse

    techniquely, yes, but it's rather challenging really, but really fun, it's not only spear guns, knife's, net's, anything, you start making stratigies, most fish are hard to spear, you have to know which and how, octopus are the BEST thing to run into, they are very dangerous, but if you play your cards right, make a great lunch, but their hard to find, i sometimes just go hours searching for them specifically, or if i get sick i just spear anything i run into, it's easier and more fun, it was my orginal strategy, and the best one i had so far :tem if you like the sea i encourage you to start diving and sea hunting, once you try it, you can't turn back, i know i couldn't

    I have gone fishing, just for fun. It's quite fun, but I always lose those bobblers and let the fish get away. >.>

    Guess I'm not that great. :p

    I like to use lures when I fish. I once caught a ten pound bass using my best lure. But when I went to take the hook off the fish, I found another hook slready stuck in his mouth. I took my hook out and the other one out, let the fish go and nicknamed him Big Bass Billy Bob.
