yep i hear ya shortfatguy. I like to mix it up as well. I'll go on phases when I only fish trout or only fish bass, but then I'll get tired and switch to some other technique or species. For my money, bass are the hardest fighters, muskies the best for getting your adrenaline going, walleyes are satisfying on the table and to figure out how to catch. Carp are one of the smartest and hardest fighters, trout are fun to stalk in small streams, and nice panfish are a fun way to spend an afternoon bobber fishing when you're just feeling lazy

Some one said something about figuring out patterns to catch walleyes. I'm not going back and looking, it doesn't matter. The thing is, is thats what I love to do to, except for bass, not walleyes. That is what I love about fishing. Figuring out the fish everyday. All my friends think that I am crazy, but no matter how many fish I caught at a certain lake one day, I will not hit that lake again for at least a month. We have ten thousand lakes we might as well fish a few different ones. It is so much fun to catch a few bass in one area and use that information to figure out which spot to hit next.

this thread is so funny... I just got done writing on another thread about how I rarely fish muskies anymore cause bass is really where it is at... For many years I fished only for musky it wasn't until I lived on Mille Lacs (arguably the best musky fishery in Minnesota) did I learn how awesome bass fishing is. It's strange I know. Muskies seem to be the new fad and I got tired of the crowds. Fighting fisherman for a spot more than actually fishing for them, not to mention how all these big money tournaments have really killed the sport... but thats another story... It's kind of embarrassing to think that I would really fish for hours on end just to see one stupid fish... Now I've caught many muskies from many different lakes ranging from little to trophy size and I can honestly say that I've never fought a fish as strong as a smallie off the rocks or a huge bucketmouth in the slop. Any muskie fisherman that thinks that muskies are more exciting hasn't caught a 6lb largemouth on a frog in a foot of water in the pads...

Like Sledneck said about getting snubbed by the walleye guys it also holds true for the muskie guys... many of my friends are still hardcore muskie guys... they just shake their heads when I tell them that I caught 20-30 nice bass in a day... But I guess the jokes on them... I'll catch more exciting fish in one day then they will catch in an entire summer... they are the real suckers laugh

If I had more good walleye lakes close I would probably fish for them more, as it is Kansas has a bunch of good lakes. So I fish for Bass and enjoy it a lot, along with crappie

Walleye, isn't that another name for Dogfish or is it redhorse sucker? I cant remember. Anyway I like to fish for Bass. laugh

black and gold carp

IMO walleyes are just as easy if not easier to catch than bass. You dont have to cast, you just let your line out and troll and catch one walleye after another.

The only thing hard about walleyes is location, there just as dumb if not dumber than bass. I catch more eyes on chatterbaits than bass, thats why I don't throw em that much grin

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
