Where then?
« on: October 16, 2017, 06:53:26 PM »

So after reading all the comments on Buds thread " fish all year ", where is the best place to live for all year fishing without extreme heat or cold?
My guess is N.C. or Tennessee but I have always lived up north and have only fished else where during good months for it.

zippy, it is really a matter that we can fish all year around.  The deal is that July and August are hot hot hot and for the most part folks night fish or just fish a few hours in the very early morning.  But you can fish all year if you can stand the heat.  We get some cold during Jan and Feb but not so bad you can't go fishing.  In fact the winter bass tournaments are very well attended.  The Carolina Bass Buddies have an event each year on New Years day and draw a good crowd.  You will have a few winter days where ice is on the ramps but it is not common.  You get snow in NC and TN and some in Upstate SC but here in low country it is very rare.  If it does snow it is gone in an hour or so.  the best thing is it is not the long winters you guys can face.  The worst part about the south is the hot summers

My guess is N.C. or Tennessee but I have always lived up north and have only fished else where during good months for it.

growing up in fairly temperate KS/NE we still had ice for a few months of the year.  thought twice about whether or not to post this.  I will say this:  from a negative perspective - just try to find time on the water where you aren't sharing it with a couple of tournaments.  Clubs, pros, highschool, college...

living now in southern TN I might be tempted to suggest it's pretty close to what you are looking for.,

good mix of high mountain lakes, TN river impoundments.  Storied waters within a few hours drive in ALL directions.

Daytime highs in the 90's, upper 90's May - September.  Overnight lows in the mid-upper 70's.  It's a bit humid for this high plains kid, but tolerable.  I've fished in 95 degree weather pouring sweat and in 80 degree weather pouring sweat.  all depends on the  humidity.

Winter/Spring (jan, feb) day time highs average in 50's and overnight lows in low 30's.

can be warmer, can be colder.  sometimes see skim ice in the backs of the coves (really shallow water)

water temps can dip to lower-mid 40's in winter.  have seen up to 92 on mainlake Chickamauga.


put all that together with legit chances at 10 pound plus LMB, 6 pound plus smallies, magnum spots and the occasional big striper... not a horrible place to spend time on the water.

I have been to Texas twice, Once to Houston and once to Fort Hood. I will be back once more to fish but then never again.
It is hot in May and not the prettiest place in the world.
Tennessee I really liked, Florida is a fishermans playground, Louisiana is one of the prettiest places I have been, the Carolinas have a little of everything.
N. Dakotah is an outdoorsman's playground, New York has more good lakes that are under utilized than anywhere.
Marylands eastern shore is great. But a one trick pony for bass.
And California is out of the question.
Someday I will have to visit Alabama and Mississippi, I just hope I can understand the people.

I'm happy here, normally we can fish from March to and Through November, sometimes December. The other months, go through our gear, make a few jigs and get into shape for more fishing come open water.

I feel the need to stand up for my Texas neighbors here.  May is not hot.  LOL  Come visit in late July and August.  Then its hot.  As far as Texas not being pretty, that's not completely true although I understand where you are coming from.  There are some beautiful places in Texas you just didn't get to see.  North East Texas has beautiful hillsides that can show you some of the most beautiful sunsets you've seen, and farther West its all open and you can see the hills and such from a long ways off.  Its actually very pretty at the right time of day.  Now Louisiana?  Yup, we have a lot of beautiful scenery here.  Especially the women.  LOL

I'd have to say, for the best of both worlds, Seattle area. The summers are nice and the winters never get bitter cold like on the Great Lakes or NE states. And there is such a variety of fishing available, LM and SM bass, trout and salmon (multiple species), steelhead, and walleye (Eastern Washington) to name a few.  A couple hours drive east or west puts you in the Cascade or Olympic mountains, past the mountains west is rainforest (salmon and steelhead runs), east is desert (hot in summer for LM Bass, cold in winter for other species). Yes I know it has a rainy season, but its not so bad and you learn to plan it.

I lived there 6 years and some of the best fishing trips I've had were in the Potholes area in Eastern WA, hard core roughin-it camping and fishing. Catching 2-3 lb rainbows in a two man Sevylor inflatable w/TM in December in the snow is unforgettable, just as hiking to uncharted seepage lakes and finding LM bass in the summer, suckers for a mojo culprit ribbontail.

I love Florida, but if I had to live somewhere else, that would be the place.

That depends, are you talking Bass fishing exclusively? Because if you add saltwater to the mix, it's hard to beat Florida in my opinion.

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, you can target different so many different species!

If you are talking just Largemouth Bass then I'm not sure. Our fish can be finicky in the 3 days of "Cold" you have to hit them in the head to get them to bite. Same goes for the days of Xtreme heat which we get a lot of. This summer in particular was absolutely brutal for most us Florida guys.

That is exactly why I remove California and Seattle from the list. I don't know about Seattle fish but Cali has some nice large Bass based tacticlebassin YouTube videos.  But I aint livin anywhere close to that much retardness.

I took a motorcycle trip from Pa. to New orleans to fort hood. So straight through said hill country and even saw a sunset there.  If you think that is pretty , then you need to visit me in Pa. I can take you on a hike through the Laurel mountains and watch a sunrise that would blow your mind or a sunset on Lake Erie that rivals the Pacific Ocean's.
If I want to see cattle I will revisit the hill country.

Come on now. What did PA get a different sun from the one used in TX?  ~roflmao

Its all about what works for you. Just like rod and reel preferences. When someone claims one brand or model is the perfect one, the holy grail, the supreme whatever, I immediately start  lo

Sure it may be to that person but that is why we have Ford, Chevy, Dodges, etc. Everyone likes different stuff. Its their opinion and in their mind they may be right. And they could be wrong.  :-*

Just look at the NFL stuff for example. Some retards thought they were right. 6 games into the season stands are emptier than ever. Facts still haven't changed some of the idiots opinions.

Funny guy.
Well I hear you don't have roach problems in Florida either, there’s just “palmetto bugs.” If you don’t know what the difference between a roach and a palmetto bug is – a palmetto bug is a roach with wings that’s large enough to carry away screaming children from their mothers’ arms. One time I thought I saw bear in Miami but it was just a palmetto bug fist fighting a grown man on two legs.  :o  lo ~roflmao

J/K of course

The up side to palmetto bugs is, if they get in your house they don't reproduce into thousands of roaches in a matter of 10 minutes. Slow reproduction systems makes em a 1 and dun when you smash em!
