No, really any that put up a great fight. I usually don't keep fish. You know that. So that means when I go out, I just like to find a few that will run on me. Whether it's cats or bass or whatever, doesn't really matter. It was fun also this last winter chasing and having fun with the muskee.
But if I am wanting to eat some fish, I prefer perch, bluegill, bass, or catfish. So if I can find them, they are just as fun for me to catch.
Now let's go chase a few tomorrow!
I also love the wipers when they're boiling. Those suckers hit like a freight train! I also like those hard fighting smallies, and the largemouth too, but don't generally target them. About the only time I like to fish for trout is when the water is too cold for the above mentioned species to be active. Fred K.
been mostly playing the cat-chasing games this spring. But turning towards bass shortly - like tomorrow am!
actually flattered as I took to water - feller asked if I was after Walleye - w/ my home-made bottom bouncer - beads and blades worm rigs - I wish! (did hook up a bitty kitty on it!)
The perch were awesome under ice this year - I blame you for my new ice-addiction!! A big fat brown is on the list!
Spring cats have taken over. Spring bass/gills will be next. Followed by chasing musky and wipers. Hope for some real CHASING - something about 6 - 60 HP might make a difference!
I want to try some "ice approaches" to jigging - see if those light bites can be capitalized on! Might even try ice rigs, spring bobbers - ice jigs. Crappie, oh Crappie....
Wipers and Muskie are top of the "list" but Walleye tops it. Have met some Crappie, and hope to meet more!
Sometime this year a UL trip for White Bass has got to happen for the kids Maybe visit the Tube-orium on the way. Worth a camp-over.
Kid wants to try Yuba 4 pike ! We'll see...
Plus they love in the most gorgeous places! I also love the frankenfish the tiger trout. No mistaken when you get a large tiger trout on the line they fight like mad. Closely followed by the rainbow and the Arial show they put on.
