Went to the fish market this morning. It’s self serve. Keeps the costs down. Get there early to get the best selection. They don’t even clean them for you, but like I said it’s pretty inexpensive. Beautiful sunrise over the gulf is thrown in at no charge. I’ll go back to this venue again.

Good to see someone post some fish pics.With summer full on here in the Ohio valley I haven't cast a line in weeks. Although I did finally get out & ran trot lines in the Ohio river with my 86 year old uncle last week for 3 days. We didn't set the world on fire but did catch a few. Checked & baited the lines each morning & evening using mostly small live bluegill. Caught the usual variety of catfish including channels, blues & a couple of flatheads. Biggest of the week was a 15# bluecat. No fish pics but did snap a pic of my uncle. Blessed to get out with him at his age & am looking forward to cooler weather so I can start hitting those crappies again.

I like running a trot line, but it’s been a million years since I have. Live bluegills were always my favorite bait. I had traps for those. The lake I live on has too many channel cats, a few blues that get in from river floods, and at least one big old flathead. I’ve gotten where I don’t want to eat the catfish very much, but would if things got bad.

I haven’t fish much this year, unlike the previous 10 or 12 years where I fished about every week. Wading the Texas surf here in the summer is about my favorite way to fish, but it can be rare to have the right conditions line up with time off. When the surf is good, there’s no place better or easier to catch fish in a hurry.

Trot lines are illegal here. But ,if things got bad...

I'll likely go fishing in some fairly remote brooks in a couple of weeks. My steps are magnets towards yellow jacket nests. Soon, it'll be too cold for them to survive.
