   Fishing with bait is certainly fun.  Personally I find lure fishing more rewarding.  With lure fishing you've taken a piece of plastic and /or metal and fooled the fish into thinking it's live prey.  With bait fishing you're dangling bait waiting for the fish to come by and eat it.
    Usually if I'm fishing for the table I'll bait fish and when I'm fishing for sport I'll use just lures.

Fish i've caught so far are Asp and Black Goby. Tomorrow after work I intend to go fishing again

I m going to try barbless hooks for fish I intend to throw back, and keep barb for fish that would be dispatched anyway

Theres something about bobber fishing. Reminds me of childhood. Just sitting on a dock by yourself watching the bobber at night. The boat dock overhead light casting an orange glow over the area. Hoping when car lights show up its not some serial killer about to yeet you into the eternal void.

I've been working on a primitive fishing kit. My first time out taught me a lot. Most notably that my stinging nettle fibre line was way too thick and short. The hooks are held in place with nettle fibre and beeswax. Pitch would be better, but I don't have that available yet, hopefully soon though. Most of my hooks were too big for the area I was in too. I'm still working on a new line that's much thinner and we've now moved to an area where the sea is really close by so looking forward to getting out there.

  Love your primitive gear, Kick. 
J, I have no idea what kind of fish an Asp and Black Goby are. Are they related to some sort of fish I am familiar with?

the asp is about the most stereotypical looking fish you can get
black goby I didn't know how to handle at first but later learned it's nothing to be afraid of. Little exotic looking fish with a suction cup on the bottom of their body

Wanted to go fishing today because I expected to receive the rest of the required paperwork today, but didn't get it in the mail. Hope to receive it later this week. We have pike , bass, trout, catfish and all that stuff too

Caught my first pike yesterday, about 40 cm in length. what an awesome fish

Used a cheapo chinese $20 spinning rod and reel, with a barbless spinner. It got me so excited for fishing
that I ordered a better quality fishing combo from Shimano when I got home.
Never really liked modern gear but modern fishing rods are an exception. This is as fun as slinging

casting long distances with the rod into the lake is very fun, it reminds me of slinging, and the feeling of getting a bite is awesome and reeling the fish in, with the anticipation untill you fully see what you got... awesome. I'm going fishing again tonight

† † For those of us who also didn't know, an Asp is a member of the Carp family.

It is a great sport. I used to be literally obsessed with it.  You'll find that it's easier to achieve accuracy with a rod and reel than with a sling.  With the right equipment and lots of practice you'll be able to place your lure on a dime.

got the fancy rod for few days now but haven't caught a single fish with it yet have more hours into it than the cheap rod.
It has yellow braided line and I think this is what is the cause  Angry. My cheaper combo has clear monofilament
see that's what ya get you buy something expensive and it doesn't work any better
