Welcome To My Fishing Site – Freshwater and Some Saltwater Fishing, Too!

Welcome to my new about fishing home.  Visit my fishing ramblings under “categories” in the right hand column,  sometimes called a blog, where I will post often.

I caught this crappie in my pond

I caught this crappie in my pond

I never met a fish I didn’t want to catch.  Some of my first memories are of following my grandmother to  local creeks and ponds and fishing with a cane pole and live bait for anything that would bite.  That was over 55 years ago, so I have been fishing for a while….

In 1974 I joined a bass club and am still in it, fishing tournaments every month in that club and the second club I joined in 1978.  I love club bass tournaments and don’t miss any.  But I also love catching any kind of fish, from bluegill in my pond to halibut in Alaska.  I have had the chance to catch fish in many places in my life.  One of my favorite memories is standing in a stream in Alaska catching salmon on a fly rod on my 60th birthday.

I am just getting started on this site so please bear with me as I add articles, fishing reports, pictures and more.  The first page I will add is Captain Mike Gerry’s Lake Guntersville Fishing Report  Any fishermen, including guides, that would like to send me reports to put here please contact me at ronnie@fishing-about.com.

I also welcome feedback on suggestions, problems and ideas you would like to see here. Contact me at ronnie@about-fishing.com

    Ronnie,

    Sorry to see you leave About.com – but they are changing into a really questionable outfit. I retired from my saltwater fishing site there and I have watched as the new management are making the site a joke. If you want to see some really cheesy videos – take a look at the saltwater fishing videos filmed with a tackle shop owner in Manhattan. I’m sure he is a nice guy and knows how to fish – in New York. But his tips and suggestions are only good for New York! I guess since all the About.com editors live in New York and have probably never even seen saltwater, this tackle shop owner is a good thing. I even emailed them to tell them the comments get from all my fishing contacts all over the east coast. Everybody I interface with – and that’s a lot of guides and charter captains – talk about how bad the videos are. Sooo – good luck with your new site. I may be following suit with a new saltwater site!! Later!

      With the way things have been going there I am not surprised, just disappointed after 16 years. But I am excited about this site. I can do what I think fishermen want here and not be so restricted!

    You might want to change the Word Press time for your blog to EST. It appears to be on GMT right now.
