    ....since I've posted on this message board but I do remember all the great advice I received. Tossing around the notion of moving to Vegas. Excited and nervous at the same time.

    What's the bass fishing like in the area? Strange question but an important one. I've taken up the hobby and LOVE it!

    Thanks for any help!

    Great striper fishery in Mead, but I'm not thinking that's the type of bass you want.

    HI Ken!



    I guess I should have been more specific. Largemouth bass. I also do a fair amount of pan fishing as well. Target species, Crappie.

    Never thought I'd get to say this, but I hope you have a very Crappie time! May your fishing be the Crappie-est it's ever been!

    I wonder what kind of day that guy was having when he named the fish Crappie? Or did he name it on how he thought it tasted?

    Sorry for my Crappie jokes. :)

    I'm glad you were amused! The pro's pronounce it CrOppie....but that's not as much fun to say. ;)

    Largemouth bass are in Lake Mead and Lake Mohave. We had the best luck in Sand Hollow, UT. Caught one after another just before dusk. No patience required.

    Thanks for the info. I was checking out some youtube clips about fishing Lake Mead.......looks interesting. We would definitely need a bigger boat....

    Down here in Florida, Crappie are called Bream and just like Crappie they have a weird pronunciation, "Brim".

    I was just down in Mobile (flew out of your lovely berg, btw) and got a chuckle out of this. I also learned that down there "boil" is a one-syllable word. :thumbsup:

    There are so many Northerners in the part of Florida I visit that crappies are called crappies and some people shudder when you tell them you ate sheepshead for dinner.

    Whatever diphthongs morph into monophthongs are compensated by diphthongs that morph into triphthongs. "House" sounds like Eliza Doolittle's vocal exercises.

    Can't answer your question- didn't know Lake Mead had any water left in it.

    A lesson in regional grammar is always enlightening. A future in Connecticut is definitely not in the cards. I'll go where the wind blows me and the fishin' is good. :)

    No clue about the fishing, but follow your heart and your head.
