What fish makes you smile? :)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I know that most of you are into muti species angling, but I know you must have your favorite. smile.gif
Mine has to be Muskies, every day off
I get during the season, is spent in hot persuit of the mighty giants.

I love fishing smallies especially on top, I enjoy catching and eating some nice walleyes and Pike really are a
great fish.

However, nothing affects me like the excitment of watching a muskie moving on my bait. They jump, they do head
shaking topwater dances and they pull
like a truck.
Muskies, Make Me Smile! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Smallies for me.

They just always have the right attitude...Smack it hard! I've had fingerlings chase my spinnerbaits that are twice their size. Yet they still are going after it. Of course trout are also fun at times, the elusiveness is a fun thing to deal with.

I don't know if I can answer this question with just one fish. Every fish I catch makes me smile. Bass are my favorite of course (they probably make me smile the biggest grin.gif), but any fish that fights hard or gives me a challenge to catch, or is something different that I have never caught before all makes me smile.

I fished for Musky for the first time last September and I am now addicted. Even the little ones hit with such energy that it is amazing. How can they be that much stronger than a Northern?
A walleye will also put a smile on my face, because no other fish has taken so many of my fishing hours for so little success. Every one that I catch in open water is a rare occasion for me.

Any fish in open water would make me smile right now....definetly , a fish a kid catches, is good...muskies by far give the best show, and fight the best,but sturgeon are really something to hang onto....nice big walleye that a client catches is worth a good grin ....good luck, and may springcome back soon!!

I would say Big Bull sunfish I'm talking in that elusive size of 3 quarter to 1 lb size. A far second would be huge crappies. I fish walleyes pretty religously but the fight a big bluegill on ultralight equipment gives you is something to behold.

Tough choice, but steelhead get the nod, with kings second. I'm going to try to get into muskies thie summer, so ask this question again in a year, we'll see how muskies stack up to the salmonoids.

I agree with Gary, about any fish a kid catches puts a big smile on my face. And, aren't we all just kids at heart anyway?

The one I'm holding up for my buddy to
photo!!! Granted, it probably isn't quite
as much fun for him at the time.

And who hasn't cracked a big grin when one
of the kids hollers "I GOT ONE"!!!

When I go Musky fishing with someone who has never caught a big fish. I smile when I am taking the picture because of the look on there face when they really don't know if they want to hold it!

My favorite would have to be any type of trout on a dry fly, in beautiful Montana. Second would have to be heart punding muskie action, can't wait until the ice melts and July, when I take my flyfishing trip to Montana.

When fishing with kids and they fight a 4# smallie for what seems like an hour and I snap pictures of them with the fish. That makes me smile smile.gif

Good Fishing

That's a tough one. In the spring, I really enjoy drift trolling a lindy rig of some sort for those BWCA walleyes. Quiet and peaceful. 10 minutes from the lake to my belly and a great view off the campsite.

But the Big V's muskies will put a shake in your knees and a huge smile. smile.gif Now, just visualizing a muskie crushing a Jackpot, or exploding out of the water after a topwater...I'm smiling now! smile.gif Can't wait! smile.gif

A Northern of any size has never failed to make me smile.

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
