Favorite kind of fish to chase

Recommended Posts

I'm a heathen, I rate them like this:

  1. Pike
  2. Musky
  3. Smallmouth bass
  4. Largemouth bass
  5. Trout

 

I can get talked into panfish on a fly rod, but have little interest in walleye or anything else that has to be caught jigging over the side of the boat or by trolling.  That's not a criticism, just how I'm wired.

 

I fish for all of the above with gear, and with flies...which may reduce the heathenism...a little...

 

I like rivers better than lakes...but fish lakes more than rivers...I'm working on a solution for that...

Hard to pick a favorite.  Kinda like asking which kid is your favorite.  But 1st choice would be any of these: steelhead, trout, salmon, smallmouth bass.  2nd choice would be pike, muskie, largemouth bass, panfish.  Would never turn down walleye, sheephead, catfish.  Really like them all.  Nice thing about variety, somethings always in peak season.

Wet wading a river for trout. A float trip is fun as a social thing, but nothing is as enjoyable as solitude in a river.

I wrapped up a float on the Big Hole once, by getting out of the raft a ways upstream from take out.

The sun was low and I kept bumping my shins on rocks, but had a glorious time hooking up.

One most memorable time.

Yup wet wading for trout.

Brookies are my favorite, no doubt about it. I just love poking around with a short fly rod on little creeks and beaver ponds, whether on foot or in a canoe.

 

I enjoy most kinds of fishing, from watching slip bobbers for walleyes and panfish to swinging classic wet flies for steelhead to flinging bucktails for muskies and pike. Given the choice, though, I’ll always fish for brook trout or, out west, cutthroats.

Fresh water,  I spend more time chasing smallmouth and musky than anything else.  We are lucky enough to have a few good rivers in my area and they get most of my attention.

For sport, Steelhead, Musky, Pike, and Smallies although I spend most of the time chasing walleyes because they're delicious.
