Does anyone out there love fishing?

I was going through some old photos the other day and I found this one of my sister. She had passed away 13 years ago and there was a box of pictures that were hers. I never went through them all the way. At the bottom of the box I found a large picture of her holding this fish she caught. I do not know what kind of fish this is, maybe you can help me with that. She loved being on the water, scuba diving, fishing and water skiing. I sure as heck miss her, she was my older sister and I looked up to her. So I thought I would share this with you all this morning.

So, do does anyone else like fishing like my sister did?  If you have any pictures of your catch, please share them with us.

No politics or religion and be polite please.

Thank you..

Nice fish!

Yes i do enjoy fishing.   Fly fishing rivers and stream for Steelhead, Brookies and such.     Inland lakes for Walleye, Perch, Bass, etc.   The big Great lakes for Lake Trout, Whitefish, King and Coho salmon.   Ice fishing in the winter.

We are extremely blessed with a fine fishery here in Michigan.

I knew there were some members on here that like fishing...

She talked about ice fishing and really wanted to do it.

Well, I'm sorry for the loss. But, it looks like she made some good memories. 

I grew up poor. For food, we hunted during the fall and winter, and we fished during the spring and summer. Even as a kid, I realized that it was not recreational. Regardless, I have great memories of fishing for striper with my dad.

You'll find lots of persons who love fishing here - and they will post their catch.

Here's one of me when I was 13 or 14 years old:

And about 30 years ago, just the joy of it - a Heineken in one hand and a rod in the other:

512 It's a stripped bass, good fighter and a good eating fish. 

 And this is a 10 lb plus largemouth.

LOL.  When I made this comment, I knew you'd be one of the ones to do it. I didn't think "Can't Catch Fish" would.

I'm looking for a pic of a 32 pound King Salmon i caught in Lake Michigan and will share it if i can find it.    Biggest fish i've caught in fresh water by far.
