    Default Favorite Fish to Target?

    What is your favorite Fish to target and why???

    I'll start by saying I love Crappie Fishing. Not only the catching part but also the eating part too. I usually keep enough now and then for a meal or two.
    I NEVER lied about the size of the Fish I caught....I just remember them being BIGGER!

    Default My Perfect Day...

    OK- If I was fishing a lake/river that contained every fish known to North America:

    I start out with Steelhead (just for the excitement!)
    probably switch to Northern Pike ( gotta appreciate those brutes!)
    then to Smallmouth (for the sheer fun of hooking those battlers!)

    And all three of those can be taken casting lures!

    then to brown trout (I just like them, and of course I'd have my fly rod along!)

    then Crappie (or Calicoes as they're called around here) especially if I had the kids along

    Now Walleye-- don't know where to place those- would depend on how hungry I was! Wish I could find such a lake! Good thread, PaJns! Best---- JoeW

    Here in the desert we don't have a lot of the fish northerners can target.
    I hunt largemouth, striped, and white bass, and channel cat during the day. At sundown I bait up my heavy rod and Penn Peer 209 with a bluegill for flathead cats and put a squid on my medium heavy channel cat rig. Later in the night the submersible green light gets fired up to attract crappie, striped and white bass. Overnight the light gets shut off for catfish only fishing. At dawn I'm casting Zera Spooks for largemouth and stripers again before loading up the boat and heading home.
    I take 8 rods on my boat, 2 mediums, medium heavy, and heavy baitcast; medium light, and medium spinning; a 5/6 weight fly rod, and a 7 weight fly rod.
    That's a typical fishing trip for me at Lake Pleasant.

    Yea I am from SoCal so I do not have as many species to target but for me
    Largemouth are my favorite fish to target only catch and release
    Crappie are my favorite to eat and fun on ultra light tackle.
    Catfish great fighting and good eating
    -Work is for people who don't fish!
    -Sorry I am late but fishing takes a lot of time!

    -There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot! That's why I use a boat!

    It's tough to pick just one favorite, but the short list (and are readily available in this area) would include smallmouth, largemouth and striper.

    My alltime favorite will always be Halibut from the great fight they put on to the excellent table fare they provide heres a quick halibut recipe that makes em as good as lobster this recipe works with all less fishy tasting white flaky fish including stripers

    clean as normal removing innnards and stomach but keep fish whole

    season with your favorite seasoning i also insert fresh garlic cloves and onions in the stomach cavity

    use 4 layers of aluminum foil folding into a top closed pouch after pouring in 2 to 3 12 oz cans of seven up close aluminum pouch bake in oven at 350 degrees untill done (cokking time vaqries with size of fish)

    serve with fresh garlic and hot melted butter

    tastes just like Lobster
    try it and post your experiance with this recipe i know it sounds wierd cooking in 7-up but its really good

    can also be cooked in a campfire or a bar-b-que

    i have lots of fish recipes if you want me to post more let me know

    I'm like Zackjohnson 57 I target what ever is bitting.
    if I am looking for a quick fish fry.
    I have to target any sunfish, bluegills, pearch, crappie. I use ultra light tackel
    and ounce for ounce these little guys put up a big fight.
    usally when you find a hot spot you catch lots of them. and they taste great
