Who wants to go fishing?

I've been here for about a year and a half now and have done some fishing, but I'm having trouble finding good spots and catching many fish.  Anybody else having the same issues or just would like a fishing buddy?  Or maybe you know your stuff, and you'd like to help a guy out?  Anyway, I'm looking for people interested in getting out and fishing.   

I'm mainly a fly-guy, but I have a spinning rod and would fish anywhere, any way to get into some nice fish.   

Maybe we can get a good group together and organize trips?

Give me a message if you're interested.   


Thanks,

-Scott

I don't do any fishing, but
I don't do any fishing, but at the mouth of the Nakdong River, there are always people fishing. If you go to Eulsuk-do (island) there are tons of people fishing there. Also, if you go on the other side of Myeong-ji, there are tons of places to fish right off the side of the road. It might be far from where you are at, but I do see people pulling up fish all the time from there. Good luck!!!

Thanks for the info!  I've

Thanks for the info!  I've tried the Nakdong a couple times but with no luck.  I've never tried the other place you mentioned - I think I'll try it Sunday!


Anyone else interested in joining me? I've got extra spinning rods and reels.

Is it really considered fishing when the biggest fish I have ever seen caught here in Korea is about 4 inches and one eight of a pound? Are there real fish to be caught? I am curious about that. After 7 years I have yet to see anyone catch anything worth while.

Absolutely

I understand your view of Korean fishing as it is very similar to mine.  However, after some looking, there is a lot that fishing in Korea has to offer.  Big snakeheads and carp can be caught if you target them right - and you can even catch them on flyrods!  Also, there's a large presence of largemouth bass as well - you just need to know where to go!  Check out this ex-pat's blog:

cool man. thanks. be great to get out when the weather is nice and do some fishing.  just getting away from the throngs of people would be great, too,  to be honest.

guys i have a car so let me know. a little road trip with a can full of worms and a cooler full of beer could be fun.
