My favorite fish to catch and eat would have to be Alligator Gar, i'm originally from texas and those monsters can get pretty big, its fun hooking the smaller ones, sometimes you get the 6+ footers and cant even turn them. yes, they are the best tasting freshwater fish.

Lake superior...as far as taste....perch, but now days it is rare to catch even one of decent size. About 20 years ago you could catch 'em as quick as you could throw a line in, and they were almost all of decent size.

I love me some pike, especially when im out in canoe by my lonesom and i hook into a biggin and it takes me for a ride-yeehaw. Brookies from a cold north eastern stream are good too, there nice to fish for on a hot summer day when you walkin down a cool brook with the sun shinning through the trees and your using an ultralight setup with 0 size aglias.

Steelhead with cutthroat not far behind.

Steelhead.....because they ream you...you don't control them. Reckless abandon, freight train runs, above water coho antics and a real zest for life....and freedom.

How can something so powderful and just plain crazy when hooked, take (egg clusters) so damn softly. Incredible, but part of the whole mystique of the Steelhead.

S&W "snubby" 38 Spec. with 110gr. SuperVels.....I got wet alot, but talk about terminal performance.......grin.

Fishin' was slow to begin with or I wouldn't have messed with the pristine waters, but slowed down a bunch more after the first carp belly rolled.

Chinooks ripp and rant pretty good, either a jack or a king still got some gusto after swimming a couple hundred miles up rivers. Its nice when its 2am and your sittin by the river in daylight, hookin into king.

Jiggn' fussy Walleye for finesse and intrigue, Whuppn' big Pike on surface plugs and spoons for excitement, exersizing cooperative, exotic and beautiful big Arctic Grayling on a dry fly in a fast river riffle up north for adventure, and catching pails of yello Perch off the dock for summer relaxation.

For eating I like Crappie.

For catching, Brown Trout on a fly rod.

Though I fish for all of them, my favorite is big, fat ugly flathead catfish.

Smallmouth bass for the fight. They jump. They wiggle. They shake. Most of all they never give up. Kings and steelhead rock too but I only get to fish for them once a year. White perch for eating.

By far, the most fun I've had is catching carp on a 20' crappie pole. I'm gonna go fight some tonight after work cool

Smallmouth. I cant decide which I like better; wade fishing in streams and rivers, or fish the resevoirs for the big boys out of a bassboat. I guess I will have to stay after them for the rest of my life to figure it out.
