Welcome back to the fold Joel. A Hightower sighting has been like a bigfoot sighting here lately.



About the time you think you've seen him, you turn and poof he's gone.

His appearance seems to strangely coincide with the new Finding Bigfoot show.

This kind of discussion always makes me long for the good old days. It sure was nice fishing with my granddad, when the ratio of fishermen to fishing holes was a tiny fraction. You could share info and everybody enjoyed catching a few fish. Nobody seemed to take advantage of it.

It is always fun to watch the parade of bass boats on a Saturday morning in the spring. They catch a few, but it is rare to see one come thru the slough in front of my house and put a hurtin on em. No matter how much pressure, they can be caught when the crowds go home. About 90% of the fish I see caught are released. Tournaments? That is a different story.

Here's to good fishing. It goes hand in hand with sharing.

I completely agree! I am a novice and every place I have fished was from studying a map, going to a place and seeing if I could match knowledge with actual terrain.

If you want a guided tour, there is a market out there for it and I think these fishing jockeys that do their homework and treat you to a great time get compensated accordingly.

As for searching for a "honeyhole", it's all relative and the experience of seeing a brightly patterned snake catch and eat a fish, or a hawk catch a squirrel, or the infinite other small things in life that make it great cross your path, relish in the present. If you want insider tips to stripping our resources, keep looking. If you want the enjoyment of the outdoors and what Alabama has to offer, stick around.

Keep doing what you are doing, guys!

It's good to see that some people actually read some of the older post before they start.

All valid and relevant points made. Due to my location in the state, I am somewhat limited to the creeks that are close by to me. Even though everyone knows about the creeks, hardly anyone I've ever talked to has shown a remote intrest in fishing them, but there again it takes some discretion on who you broach the subject with. Raising awareness of the creeks and streams we have is great and I hate to be a pesimist but I doubt enough attention could ever be brought to hand in this state on behalf of the creeks and streams to ever make a real difference on industry/individual pollution, logging practices, development, etc (still shoudn't stop one from "doing one's part" though) and to me that's the bigger picture and the only reasons "awareness" would be beneficial. I would love to think that everyone who gets out there would see themselves in a small way as a steward of Gods' land but the realist in me just knows better and has seen the flip side or the results thereof. I just use extreme discretion on who I trust to let in on it. As much as I enjoy the solitude of a backwoods creek (the solitude is what draws me back, not so much the actual fishing), I would hate to deprive anyone else of that same experience,,but mind you and I repeat,,,anyone who I know has the capacity to fully appreciate it. Creek fishing just doesn't appeal to the penile envy that's charachteristic with the Skeeter, Triton, Champion crowd but let's face it, it is this crowd that funds the majority of the states revenue as it pertains to wildlife consevation and enforcement .... Confused I don't forsee creek fishing catching on to that extent here in AL,,,,, Confused but there again, fifty years ago who in E. TN/W.N.C. would have thought they'd live to see the day an entire mountain was dotted with rental homes or people flying in from out west to catch a few specks? Shocked


Well said.
