Well, I am new to this site. I am just getting back into fishing. I enjoy all kinds of fishing. Having a 2 pole tag I like to toss one in and let it sit while I fish for whatever bites on the other one. I do however love to reel in a nice cat. I like to stay close to home, it lets me spend more time fishing than driving. I joined this site looking for hints and tips to catching more fish. I am not looking at spending tons of money on equipment. I have seen a record catfish caught on a barbie pole. What I have now (Fathers day present) is a Zebco Hawg seeker. It is pretty cool to me ( a little gimmicky but cool). I live in Chandler and frequent Tempe Town Lake. I have never caught anything out of there but it is relaxing to sit there alone in the quite. I travel all over the state with my job and usually I will take a pole with me. I have been fishing since I was little but It was always a worm and a bobber. I would like to step up my game a bit and acctually start catching fish. Lets start with Tempe Town Lake and Urban lakes in the Chandler/Tempe area. What are good times of day. Good places at the lakes/ponds, what is a good way to set up your line and what are the best baits that work at these places. Sorry for such a long post, I just want to start catching fish so I can get my 5 year old back into it. He has had no luck the past few times and is loosing interest.
