Your favorite fish to target poll.

93 posts in this topic

I don't want this to turn into a fight between whose fish of choice is better. Just want to get a feel for what the average FMer is about. I'll start. List your targets in order.

1. Walleye

2. Crappie

3. Sauger

4. Big gills

5. Bass- I don''t target them often, but their fun.

6. Pike as long as thier big, cant stand the pesty little snot rockets.

7. Jumbo perch, Should be higher on list, but haven't had any luck with them on the lakes I fish. Just the small ones.

8. All other fish are welcome if they put up a big fight, but never targeted.

Well I will be honest I really don't target any particular species. Whatever happens to bite first is what I will target for the day. At least until I catch a different species and then I will target them. I just fish to fish but if you want to know what I prefer to catch I will tell you. A nice tan and some fish. To me as long as you don't get skunked it's a great day on the water. smile

Again that is just me, I'm not making fun of the thread or the people posting on it. I just fish for anything is all.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
