I am just wondering what is your best time of year to shoot? Numbers and Size?
Please include the state that you fish, the month(s), what type(s) of fish and numbers a person could expect on an average night. (Remember if you say "Spring", your spring in FL is much different months from our spring in MN)
Just wondering in case I decide to go on year long vacation! Thanks!

Right now is really a great time in pa all the way up to freeze up... I'm just usually in the deer grind so I don't go as much as I'd like.

Usually during May on Saginaw bay the carp get so thick during the spawn in the marsh you can walk on them it's amazing to look down about a 10 by 30 yard open area in the the marsh in a foot of water and see almost solid fish in the whole area

What's it going to take to get the TN legend to come shoot a few non existent Dale Hollow bigguns with us?
I hate fishing that lake lol. So many much better lakes in TN. But that's where my family lives. So I'm always down for a trip.
