Welcome

Welcome aboard!  This website is primarily and fundamentally about fostering the appreciation of, and educating anglers about, the much-maligned and under-appreciated North American fish species known as "roughfish".  As an extension of this, we like to keep track of our lifelists, since an appreciation of all species assumes the appreciation of roughfish that we fervently seek to cultivate. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Ever caught a Nile Perch?

Thanks

Thanks everyone, I have nile perch but with a new camera I think I can finally do these awesome fish justice. the one species I have yet to get is the sailfish.people say it is because they are rare but it is not the case. it is b/c in egypt no one has the know-how to get one. it is a combination of many things but most sad is money. I have seen  sails in egypt on the YF tuna troll, 15 times some of them estimated to be at least 60 pounds but with time and more adding of knowledge of all the research Im doing I will get one...eventuallycheeky

but enough with that can anyone point me in the right direction with catching sucker and redhorse species. things like gear what locations you can find variety and quantity and what kind of water to look for them in. any help would be greatly appreciated.

You want to catch redhorse, you've come to the right place.

 

Tell us where you are fishing!

LI = Long Island

Welcome!

 

Simply said a bottom rigwith a crawler on the bottom at current breaks are the simple instructions for redhorse.

 

I had to go to Omar's profile to see where he was fishing.

It is all perspective!

White sucker

white suckers only as far as I know. every time I put Long island and fish or fishing in the same sentence all I get that comesout  is stripers,stripers,stripers.... and you guessed it more stripers angry I love stripers but  this gets very annoying after a while.any help from you guys would be appreciated.

We got this!
We got this! It looks like you have four rivers on the island, which are home to brown & brook trout, white perch, common carp, and other species. I would think there would be a few redhorse there.

what bait do you use for stripers?
What bait do you use for stripers? Im going fishing at a lake that has them. Try to find a creek, or river for redhorse. On a side note you should stock up on food, get some flashlights, and water. I hear you guys have a franknstorm a comming.

Thank you pyromaniac!

 @perkinsdonald thank you for the concern and I have made all preperation needed,as for your landlocked stripers shad species are the way to go gizzard and threadfin.keep it under 5 inches,also skipjack herring works well and for them bigger is better. it all depends on where you live so where are you fishing?

@Omar, glad to help!
@Omar, glad to help! @Don, the stripers down my way go for bigger shad, more like 8-10 inches. And as for the Frankenstorm, it's already cold, nasty, and just generally unpleasant in Virginia. I'm up in the mountains about 430 miles inland, but we're not having the best weather day... We're expecting up to 2 feet of snow.

Striper feeding habits

wow  pyro 8-10 inches! in my neck of the woods the landlocked stripers go for the small shad slashing through at high speed compensating for the size of shad their eating by taking as many as they can in one slurp/gulp!!! it is a sight to behold.so Imagine they way stripers in your area feed differently?

It seems that way... In most
It seems that way... In most of the lakes down here they focus on gizzard shad and crappie, with the occasional white bass, skipjack, or largemouth bass.
