    Ever since reading an article in Field & stream years ago about Halibut fishing, for 300#-400# fish, I've always wanted to go try it.
    The article started out something like this.
    To imagine what Halibut fishing is like, take your favorite rod & reel up on the roof, along with your refrigerator! Tie the line to the refrigerator and kick it off the roof. That's what Halibut fishing is like!
    What is your dream fishing trip and why?

    I could list dozens but the one trip I really wish for is very simple.

    I would like to be 8 years old again and go fishing with my dad and mom one more time. Cane pole, 10 feet of dacron line and a simple cork bobber. A rusted #6 hook and a soup can of dug worms. We caught stringers full of blue gills and bullheads. Once home I would do the scaling and dad would do the cleaning. Mom would pan fry them up and fix a big pan of fried potatos and sliced tomatoes from the garden.

    My dad and mom have been gone for 23 years, I miss my fishing buddies.To me that would be the best fishing trip I could ever ask for.

    My dream fishing trip would be on the Amazon river to catch some of those monster cats as well as those MONSTER "perch". While I am there, I would also take the opportunity to fullfill my life long dream of catching a giant yellow andeconda.

    I have wanted to go there since I was a child and really do dream about it at night. It's a dream that causes my heartrate to go up because my desire for it is so great.

    I pray the good Lord allows me that opportunity before I leave this earth.

    If I could just get up right now and go fishing,many of my dreams would have come true.I would not have to catch a thing.Your dreams get much simpler as your quality of life changes.That is why I try to tell every one.You have had a wonderful trip if you did;t get a nibble,the big one got away or you didn;t catch a thing.You never realize how wonderful those trips were till you have none.peewee-williams

    I know where I would go, there is a place in Ky. called Kenlake I hear in september they are having a big National Gathering for some group called the BOC. It's suppose to be a big todo, I hear their mabe a 1000 people there, they will be having a big time for 3 whole days and nights. They will be fishing, eating, camping, fellowship, just a really good time with friends from all over the USA. Man now that would be my dream trip.......OH WAITE! It's not a dream I'm really going and you can to, all you have to do is SIGN UP.

    That would do it for me too. I would also like to fish Santee Cooper and a sand bar on any number of rivers while camping out.

    Mine would be. Go to lake just one time and see no trash.


    Acually I would love to go to some remote area in the mountians with forest, cool air and lake full of fish. I got the pic in my mind that I've seen pictures of. Spend an entire year or lifetime in a spot like that. I've never been a people's person. . LOL.

    I'm offering my services as the cook for Willie's Westbound Wagon Train. Then I'll definitely be there to EAT some halibut! (I know they're huge fish, but they taste so good you'd have to fillet at least one!):smile2:

    South America, Amazon and Orinoco basin to fish for many of the species in those rivers, red-tailed cats, peacock bass, tiger cats. And to meet some of the indigenous tribes would be really cool too.

    Well, that national gathering of the BOC sounds like a real good start, but to make it a "dream trip" I'd have to stay an extra few weeks camping right at the edge of the water and catch a number of 50+ pound cats, 8+ pound bass, and what ever other BIG fish are out there to be caught.

    Wish to God that I could afford to fly my family out there and go to that gathering... :sad2:
