  1. Hi,
    I have relatives actually staying in the west of the States and would be planning to visit them this coming Christmas. Thanks for your advice. Usually when I am actually fishing, I tend to use live worms as it is easy to get from stores! I have not really fish before in the states but I have fished before in Singapore. How do you usually fish?

    1. Hi, Jacob. That’s a good question. I fish all kinds of ways depending on where and when I am fishing and what kind of fish I want to catch. You are right. Worms or live bait, particularly live minnows work very well in most places. I also like to use lures that work on top of the water when I am around logs or weeds. Another favorite of mine is the spoon….. I like red and white spoons or silver. Where you go fishing, stop at a fishing equipment store and ask what the fish are biting. That will help you a lot.

      Keep on Fishin’@


  2. Hey Jim:

    My uncles and my gramps were all fishermen and the lure lore flew thick around me. It was a joy to see this! The best of them all, though, was my aunt Abbie. Mostly she fished from the shore and she knew the best fishing holes.

    I am wondering. What about Hawaii? Your news page doesn’t touch on it.

    1. Thanks for you comment. Good question. For some reason, the sources I use for updates from time to time don’t have anything on Hawaii. I will get something in that part of my site on Hawaii. Thanks!
