Hello, my name is Joe (aka beerman),
I live in Selah (just outside of Yakima) with my wonderfull wife. I'm 25 years old and play around with dead cows all day -- I'm a meat cutter. Actually, I am a CWU graduate with a Bachelors in English and Creative Writing. And, based on the job opportunities for English Majors in Yakima, I must rephrase again, I am a meat cutter, haha. My hobbies include the obvious, fishing. But, I am also a waterskiing and wakeboard nut. Four wheeling, Cooking, hiking, photography and surfing the net are other activities I can be found doing. But a rule of thumb is, if it has to do with the outdoors, I am all over it!
I've been fishing pretty much my whole life, thanks largely to my father who introduced me to this wonderfull sport. My favorite species to fish for would probably be bass. Trying to determine which color of lure, type of lure, hole, etc. will provide fish gives me a great challenge and never bores me. Trout fishing is a pretty close second to bass fishing. Sometimes I am in the mood to just sit down a lawn chair by a lake, crack open a cold beer, throw on some power bait and just wait and just wait for a nibble, while enjoying mother nature. If I had to pick my top three lakes, they would have to be 1) Dog Lake in Yakima county for the great trout fishing; 2) A secret lake that always provides me with beautiful bass; and 3)Lake Sacagawea (the section of the snake river between Ice Harber and Lower Monumental Dams. This stretch provides great fishing opportunites for large catfish, bass, perch and pretty much anything else under the sun.
Great thread man! I hope we can all get to know eachother a little better now. It would be nice to meet some of y'all out on the lake sometime!
