The last time I went fishing was about seventy years ago. I remember that there were worms...

Right in my wheelhouse, I'm an avid bass fisherman and have fished bass tournaments all over the West and Central Midwest. 

Various Indian tribes are rewilding all over the US. Buffalo, black foot ferrets, condors, sturgeon, and many other species of animals/birds/fish/reptiles. 

This is a photo taken on my rez, Red Lake Ojibwe Rez in northern Minnesota of a wolf. The wolf has a great deal of meaning to us and is protected while on Ojibwe rez's throughout MN.

That wolf is not only very scary, it is also very beautiful.

Last summer, on our private lake, during the bass tournament I landed an 18-1/2" bass but was outdone by a 21" bass.  During the tournament we also try to take as many pike as possible, the bass is catch and release (unless you ended up having one die from the hook), but the pike is catch and keep as we are trying to reduce their numbers as they have decimated the perch population.  The largest pike was, I believe, 42".

Red Lake where I caught the 6 lb smallie has walleye, northern pike, Muskie, largemouth bass and lake trout in it plus catfish, bullhead, crappie and perch and assorted other bottom dwellers in it like dogfish which I hooked one day bass fishing and thought I had the new world record for bass, the Dogfish weighted 25lbs.

The biggest largemouth I've caught was 12 1/2 lbs at Clear Lake, CA.

Our lake isn't quite that diverse yet.  It is manmade and the surface area, including all back ponds and the main lake, is approx. 100 acres going from shallows to as deep as 50 ft., so we have been planting fish since 2013 and when we had our 500 year flood, whatever was in the river and county drain to the north when they overflowed their banks and the lake disappeared beneath the flood waters in 2020, we still don't quite know what all we got.
