Your "home" water
OK, let's see a pick of where you call home. I'll start, this is the Kinni in River Falls WI. Less than an hour from home and a natrulally reproducing pop of browns with a 3000 fish per mile avg. The downside is with that many fish, the bigger ones are few and far between but the upside is constant action and a great place to take the kids to "hook" them on the sport.Five minutes into the drive and you're already driving me crazy...

Hartwell Lake. This was taken from the dam (as you can see). That is the beginning of the Savannah River on the front side.
I usually fish for largemouth bass. There is a very good population of stripers here, state record came from Hartwell, as well as crappie and bream. The bream are good for kids because you can catch them so wasily.
The state record rainbow trout came from the river just by that bridge in the picture. Well an old record anyway, it has been broken a few times since.

The only thing worse than the feeling that you are going to die is the realization that you probably won't.

Well unfortunately for me the river I call home is over 1500 miles away from me right now..... one of the offshoots of the Robe River in Valdez AK.
Salmon so thick you have to step over them to get to the good stuff.
God I miss that right now.
I really need to get out fishing in oregon.

Our "home" waters. Beverly/Salem/Marblehead harbors, Cape Ann (Manchester, Gloucester, Essex, etc). Our boat is docked right under the "A" in Beverly, MA in the middle prong of the fork (Danvers River), and my buddy's boat (Jay's Dip Powcher) is docked right at the "G" in Gloucester.
As a side note. If any of you followed the news coverage of the explosion in Danvers a few months ago, that Marina they kept showing right next to the chemical plant that exploded is where our boat slip is. Luckily it wasn't there at the time.

Peterson Creek. About 18 miles north of Juneau. Today was my first day, with no fish luck, but oh what a day.

ive got no pictures but when I lived in Atlanta, it was the Chatahoochee.
When I lived in NC, it was a combination of a few rivers all 15 minutes away.
Tuckaseegee, Nanthahala, and the Hiawasee. I was always shocked how different each river fished and they were so close.
Now I suppose its the S Platte being its 5 mins from my place.
