Loc: VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER.......
I'm on my 3rd tour in Korea, Army. The thought of fishing never crossed my mind since Koreans are big on snakeheads and carp. Back in OCT two of my soldiers decided to go fishing at the local river just off base. The next day they told me they actually caught a couple of bass. I thought, pfft, these kids these days must be crazy. So I went to the local tackle shop which actually surprised me. It was about two acres of nothing but bass fishing tackle. I picked up two cheap spinning rod and reel combos for $30 each. Then spent about $250 bucks on tackle (stuffs not cheap here), which was on hooks,soft plastics (zoom, yup they have it here), handful of cranks, a couple of top waters and some spinnerbaits. Hit the spot and it only took me about 10 mins to catch a bass. Yup, a bass. Anyhow, I've been fishing at least one day a weekend since then. It finally got cold at the end of NOV and it's snowed twice already. But, I decided to go out this past SUN even though it was 42dgrs. Caught two small ones and then this pig hit. She was 6lbs!!!!! Not bad for Korea.

I'm 6ft just to give you some size reference.


And here's a pic of one of my buddys who caught this snakehead at a pond on base. He's 6'2, that thing was freaking huge!!!!

Where in in Korea? Never thought about fishing when I was there but then didn't have much water where I was. Can you eat that snakehead?

Snakehead is good eating, catch them in Florida on bass tackle and bow fishing at night.

I'm at Camp Humphreys. Alost any freshwater pond, lake or stream has bass. They're considered a trash/nuisance fish, but more and more Koreans are fishing them as a sport. I've seen many bass boats at the local river. Koreans eat fish form the local ecosystem, but with no EPA or OSHA here I wouldn't dare.................
