    Nobody dies golfing (unless from a heart attack from too many chicken wings). Depending on the kind of fishing you do, it can be very physically demanding and in some cases quite dangerous.

    True. Even on my small 'home lake' of 15 acres, I dont take chances, always wear the life vest, because I usually fish alone, and I am a crappy swimmer.

    When I was a kid, I nearly drowned 3 times on 3 separate occasions, at 3 different ages, at 3 different locations: lake, pool, ocean.

    By all means, I think you should be around water all the time, then.

    This is my 8lb. 24" rainbow trout that I caught probably 10 years ago or so.
    The fish I caught looked nothing like this; it was so big & fat that it was almost completely silver, with almost no color on it.







    And that Berkley Powerbait stuff definitely works, btw...

    Hell, no guts, no glory. Besides, I'm sure it could use some good Hampur hits!

    Living by Lake Erie makes Walleye the default excuse to hit the lake and down cheap beer.

    Didn't have much luck this year as the lake flipped right before the tourney and sent the walleye scattered. Still got plastered though....

    I did something similar while bow-hunting deer. Skewered a 16 point buck right through the neck, but knew I had to let him go so someone else could get an opportunity.
    +1

    Did you treat the wound first? It could have got infected.

    EDIT: Great story BP

    Headed out late this afternoon after work for an hour's fishing. Was crossing the edge of the Lynn Flats when I saw a few small fish (snappers, maybe) slashing at bait on the surface. Cut the engine, climbed up in the bow, and started tossing a Gartside Gurgler. As I worked it, about every minute or so something much bigger than the snappers would surge through the bait, scattering it. Started working the fly with a little more pop and on about the dozenth cast hooked into a good fish that after a fifteen minute fight, which included taking me into my backing, turned out to be the biggest striper I've landed on a fly rod, just shy of 40 inches.

    I don't keep fish unless I've had a specific request for one. As this was not the case (and add to that as this as clearly a breeding female) she was revived and let go.

    Seems like there is far too much 'science!' involved with catching walleyes.
    I mean, between all the crazy-ass worm rigs, spinners, jigheads, beads, ...its just to seem to be a hassle. Far too specialized, it seems, for my taste.

    Yikes. That striper has the red sores on it. Mycobacteria.

    Shame. Last weekend we caught 3 of them, 2 had the sores and we threw them back. Yours doesn't look too bad but the disease can pass to humans.

    Great catch though.
