I had to add Rainbows and N. Pike to the list. My vote is fly fishing for Trout!

Smallies on UL...and Muskys.


July 21st, 2006, 04:00 PM
All the fish listed are good. For pure fight -small mouth, white bass/wiper, musky and catfish.

July 21st, 2006, 04:55 PM
trout, bass then carp

July 21st, 2006, 05:45 PM
I voted bass but catfish would be my second choice.

July 21st, 2006, 06:27 PM
i voted for northern pike, but i will fish for any of them. some days when nothing else will bite, i will even put a crawler on the bottom and try for carp.

Mostly bass

I voted bass because 95% of the time I fish I fish for largemouth. But I prefer smallies to largemouth.

i like whatever sucks in my lure. Doesn't matter to me really if it's a bluegill or a catfish.

Been tournament fishing lately and it really perks up the old heart.:)

The poll needs an all of the above choice. If it swims, I like fishing for it.

My faverate fish to go for is CARP. But i put musky as my second choice.

July 24th, 2006, 12:26 PM
All of the above for me.

Depends on what I feel like catching, really. Although this year it has been largely about getting onto Lake Erie for the walleye. Simply amazing this year. AMAZING!

I like bass fishin but I enjoy fishin for smallies, catfish, muskies, trout, and panfish too. If it'll bite Ill fish for it.

July 30th, 2006, 11:48 AM
I love Bass fishing. Lots of Smallies around here. Great Pike fishing too.

You forgot the "all the above" choice in your poll!:)

exactly what I was thinking.

August 10th, 2006, 09:32 AM
red eyed rockbass and bluegill number one with catfish and bass number two but realy i would say what ever is biting

August 10th, 2006, 10:15 AM
Bass and walleyes are my 2 favorites.

August 10th, 2006, 11:05 AM
You forgot Sturgeon. If it swims, I will fish for it.

By far the best eating fish in the Western Hemisphere! Pretty fun to catch too. I just caught about 500 in 5 days while in Canada.

August 10th, 2006, 01:15 PM
salmon...king and coho...steelhead,lake trout, brown trout.

August 11th, 2006, 11:24 PM
Only own $1000 dollars worth of tackle for 1, BASS

August 12th, 2006, 09:52 AM
Fishing for steelhead on the piers of Lake Ontario with a noodle rod and 6lbs test is by far the most religious expirience I can have.

October 9th, 2006, 07:09 PM
Catfish of couse:wink:

That is a lot of good eating. I used to go up to the Columbia every year when the smelt were running for Sturgeon, but with the archery shoots, I haven't had the time. They are a ball to catch, and great eating.:darkbeer:


October 11th, 2006, 12:06 PM
give u all one good guess on what i fish for. i would love to do some professinally catfishing. my second favorite fishing is to hit the creek and catch some smallies on the ol fly rod.

October 23rd, 2006, 06:35 PM
All of the above for me! Bass and Pike are my favourite.

October 24th, 2006, 07:28 PM
Bass, whites, blacks, and smallmouth, crappie and salmon (when I get to go to Alaska and catch them)

October 28th, 2006, 11:00 PM
I must be an oddball. I have no desire to ever fish for another largemouth bass again in my life. I am certain I will catch plenty while fishing for other species but it's all you ever see people do or fishing for on TV. Kinda over done.

All of the above except muskies, sturgeon and northern pike. I haven't fished where these fish live. Lucky for them. Fish fear me.

Anything with gills !!!!!!!!!!!!

Cats though, are one of my favorite to fish for.

January 1st, 2007, 07:51 PM
Bass for the fight...Walleye for the bite.

I like fishing for anything and everything!

If you've never hooked a Steelhead, you don't know what you're missing!

Flyfishing for Trout has been on the top of my list for a couple of years as well.

The only freshwater fish I target is striped bass. We usually end up catching quite a few large mouths in the process.
