Bass Fishermen vs Trout Fishermen

The wife found this and sent it to me.

Bass fishermen watch Monday night football, drink beer, drive pickup trucks and prefer noisy women with big breasts. Trout fishermen watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine, drive foreign cars with passenger-side air bags and hardly think about women at all. This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact that trout fishermen spend most of the time immersed up to the thighs in ice-cold water. ~Author Unknown

LOL too funny Rodney!

And John, don't knock it till ya try it ;) I would rather bass fish than trout fish any day of the week... however... there is definitely something magical about standing waist deep in a babbling mountain stream. :)

I'm the bass fisher"Girl" in our family and my husband trout fishes. However I think this is the one time the sterotype doesn't apply to us. He loves to hunt, drink beer, loves big chested women and fish for trout. He hates watching sports except for when I make him go to a UT football game with me. I on the other hand love to watch football and I drink wine occassionally and champaigne, don't care about big breast and we both drive the big truck.
You and your hubby sound like a match made in heaven Summer lol :cheers:
You will never understand unless youve tried it... which was exactly my point ;)

and... most waders are insulated so you dont feel the actual water temp
I bet John! I did a bit of trout fishing in Skowhegan, Maine many years ago. I loved it!

I love standing in the river, the water pressure squeezin on your legs, holding you steady, with the surface of the water so much closer to eye level than usual. ANd when ya hook a fish and pull him up to your waist/chest and see him so close to you... awesome! :)

In CT I use to wader fish for large mouth and smallmouth all the time. Ive caught some of my biggest bass sneaking around the shores in a pair of waders. Admittedly I have only done it a few times down here. I've had too many close calls with moccassins and fear having a close call with a gator lol One day though... when I can find perfect wading waters (where I wont get stuck in mud)... I will give it a go down here. :)
I use to catch Snapping Turtles for fun when i was growing up :) Never used hook and line though... always either just my hands or a net.

WHen I was about 8 I had 4 of them in a tank. They were my buddies and Id actually take a couple into the bath tub with me lol They were so small tho that even when they bit your finger it didnt hurt much. Little did I know, back then, the danger I could have been had those turtles latched onto the wrong body parts lol

ANother memorable moment was the time my buddy and I were up in the poconos fishing on Shohola Falls Lake. I think I was about 17 or so. My dad had bought a brand new wooden frame hand woven fishing net from a local shop up there. I took it with my friend and i fishing. Well we saw a big ol snapper so I scooped him up in the net and pulled him into the canoe. We were gonna bring him back to show my father so I decided to wrap him up in the net and lay the net on the bottom of the canoe. This turtles shell was well over a foot long.

So the turtles wrapped up in the net scratching around the bottom of the canoe now. My friend and I are fishing and pretty much ignoring the turtle. All of a sudden my friend is freaking out! The turtle was loose in the boat. My dad's net... destroyed lol The snapper ate his way out lol Man I took a whippin for that one lol

Snappers never bother me. Snakes dont bother me either... BUT... get chest deep in the water and have a snake drop out of a tree and be near eye level and swimming toward you... and you will NOT like snakes very much at the moment in time lol That's happened a bunch down here too me.
