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.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
