I took this idea from dtro on the bass fishing forum. I figured it'd be fun to see who's the "best all-around fisherman/woman" on FM. Here's all the different species categories on FM, let's see who's highest! And let's try to be honest.

Bass - 24 1/4

Catfish - 20

Carp/sturgeon - 54

Northern - 39

Muskie - 40

Panfish - 15 1/4

Trout - 19

Walleye/perch - 27 1/2

Total - 239

No reason to be dishonest. I as well have pics for all except the catfish and trout. All are caught in Minnesota as well. I guess I put way to much time on the water and have gotten lucky a few times, but I still intend on improving on all except maybe the panfish(crappie) and the walleye, just to be realistic.

Note I have listed where I have caught my fish as not all are MN

Bass 23 Florida the famed Okechobee

Cat 48 pool 4

Sturgeon 84 Sacramento Delta CA - had to beach the boat

Musky 49 Tonka several times can't break 50 GRRR

Pike 43 Mille Lacs

Trout 27 Utah Rainbow Strawberry Lake thru the ice

Crappie 15+ Waconia

Walleye 31 Tonka the one in avatar weighed more but was

only taped at 30

320

Lots of hours for those fish. Planning to go lake trout fishing in Flaming Gorge UT next year to see if I can up that total with a big laker. Doubt I can improve much in the other catagories. I've given up on the 50+ musky after 30 years of trying.

I'm thinking we should be doing mn and border waters only. It starts getting a little ridiculous when you factor in southern bass & cats, white sturgeon, etc.

The Sacramento River sturgeon are whites but don't get to the size of the Columbia/Snake/Fraser river fish. I have fished in Idaho for whites but since I never lived there not listing them. The "southern" bass only gave me 1 inch but it was my biggest so I listed it. the catfish was flathead from the Mississippi Pool 4 not a southern fish. Just listing fish I caught from states I have actually lived in. I think great lakes salmon/steelhead should be countable in the trout catagory.

If you want to catch big fish you need to go where they are.

Bass - 20''(canada)

Catfish - 24''

Carp - 15lbs on my scale, no length measurement.. I'd guess 36''?

Pike - 37''(canada)

Muskie - 48''(canada)

Panfish - 11''

trout - 29''(canada)

Walleye - 29''(canada)

total: 234 give or take some for the carp.

Take out Canada and it's much less for me as I still haven't done tons of Minnesota fishing.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
