Where would you go?  Or would you remain in your own state?

I say NY.. if you really think about it we have a phenomenal fishery...
Lake erie, chautauqua, onieda for unmatched walleye fishing.. lake Erie for huge spring cats,  steelhead,smallmouth
Ontario salmon fishing
Perch fishing on Erie and ontario
Musky fishing on the lower niagra and chautauqua
Head to adirondacks for some awesome pike fishing or pulaski to fish salmon
Or the susquhana for smallmouth and musky...
I know there are alot of great places in NY to fish but these are just a few

I couldn't pick one. As I continue to age I lust for trips that are further and further away. I will agree that NY has an amazing fishery that could keep me busy for life.  Lets not forget the amazing coastal fishery as well!

Right here in RI. The variety of saltwater life is amazing. Fluke, tautog, striped bass, seabass, bluefish, bonito, albies, cod, trigger fish, king fish, sea trout,  mahi mahi, blue fin and yellow fin, several shark varieties, lobster, blue shell crabs and other types, and quahog, oysters and steamers. Basically my supermarket. Freshwater fishing is also amazing for panfish, bass, trout and pike in both lakes and ponds as well as rivers and streams. Then we also have great hunting for upland birds, small game, turkey and deer. Shrooming is also nothing less than amazing. Small state with big value. Also a stone throw away from other great states.

Lots of options anywhere in NY. I can't count the body's of water, rivers or streams I can be on in a one hour radius from my home in Macedon.

Sorry Mac, been to Fla. many times. Alright place to visit....wouldn't live there if it was free.

No biggie.
Less people there when I get there in two.

No state income tax there either.
So you can afford a larger boat, or a couple dozen charters.

 I cant stand humidity. Freekin hate it.  That said Ill just stay out west I do quite well in Colorado, you can open water fish and ice fish on the same day.  300 days of dry sunshine a year hard to beat that, great fishing in all the surrounding states as well.

No slush!
