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

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
