Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    My favorite fish:

    (Atlantic variety by common name, but they really mostly hang out in the Gulf of Mexico.)

    They fight like a fish twice their size and are absolutely delicious.

    I can't wait to get fishing this year.

    I wish I knew any good places around. I mean I'm about 1/4 mile from the Potomac, but that place is a toxic wasteland.

    Well that's just not true. Plenty of spots outside the beltway, and inside as far as georgetown are some rather historic honey holes for rockfish. And if you're that close, then the shenandoah isn't far away either. As well as the chesapeake. Check out the reservoirs in central MD too.

    For those of you who didn't know freshwater fishing in California has been totally fagged off

    The state of California used to run an immensely popular and successful stocking program in almost every significant body of freshwater in the state

    That is until last year when some idiot fucking hippies said "Hey man you just can't go throwing fish in the water without first running environmental impact reports." So they sued and won and now the only fish you can find worth fishing for in most freshwater lakes is bass. And bass doesn't taste anywhere near as good as trout does.

    And our oceans here are so overfished the fishing seasons last maybe one month a year. The commercial season for Salmon this year lasted less than a week

    So yeah fishing's pretty fucked here

    Oh God yes, mackerels are mother fuckers and tasty to boot. My girl friend holds the current household record for biggest mackerel. Damn her eyes!

    Oh course, ours look like this:

    Fuck off and die.

    Man last year I went fishing for sturgeon for the first time. It was a fucking great time. Sit around, drink and smoke watching to see if your pole twitches then hang on for the ride if you get a big one. Didn't catch any keepers but hoping that changes this year.

    I've catch and released bluefish my entire life, what is this nonsense that they're hard to de-hook? They sell a multitude of tools that do just that.

    I didn't mean the whole area where I live was a toxic wasteland. Just the Potomac where I am (20 miles south of D.C.)

    (seriously, you can't walk along the shore without crunching a few needles intermingled with deformed frogs)

    I'll be hitting up This 23 Acre Lake the 30th or 31st

    Fletcher's Boathouse is the place to be in the DC area when the shad start to run.

    Worthless to keep and eat, but fun to catch and release like crazy.
