Too many lakes and Rivers, from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans as well as both oceans to count, in Canada and the USA. I have had a great life of fishing, so many great memories, I have been blessed!

Not many species I have not caught in Canada, that's for sure :o)

All of em.

No saltwater but a ton of creeks, ponds, rivers, streams and lakes.

Rod and reel, trotline, throw line, limb lines, snagged em, hand grabbed em and may have shot a few with something other than an arrow.

If I recall correctly, cane poles, and bullheads, gravel pit was my first time.

Wow big question.
Fished a ton from Great Bear in the territories on east to James Bay. Too many to count…
Northern Michigan west to the Rockies.
Some of the bigger southern impoundments like Flaming Gorge…
Central America quite a bit, tarpon mostly, same around Florida plus other species there…
Uncountable total.
Guiding and exploring waters all of my life, I’d do it all again.

Great answer, after 70 years of fishing still working on it.

Also a great question, something to think about when you wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep.

Man, I have no idea... not as many as some of the previous replies, but a lot.

I've lived in 4 states, fished them all a lot, and fished a few states I haven't lived in.

My number isn't that big. At first blush I thought over 100 but now that I really think about it, its around 3 dozen is all. Lake Michigan. Mendota. Crane. Little Sand. Big Stone. 8 in Deuel Co. Another 10-15 in SD. Oahe, Sharpe, Francis Case, Lewis and Clark. A few in MT. Lac de Mille Lacs. Interesting question thanks for asking.

I love river fishing don’t know much about lakes. One goal I have for 2023 is to expand my repertoire to piers out on Lk Mi. I saw some videos of guys catching lake trout as they come up to spawn I never even knew you could catch em from shore that’d be bad ass.

I love fishing for the fact you can hit it hard all yer life and still not scratch the surface of what there is to know!

It'd be fun to pin tacks on a map.

On those lake trout.. they will come in even when not spawning. In lakes with lakers they will be cruising the shores after ice out for a couple weeks in the cold water.
Find a place along the shoreline with a very steep drop down to 60’ or more. Just use a weighted hook with sardines or sucker meat and toss it out and let it swing back into shore. Leave it lay there against the bottom 30-40 feet deep. The trout will cruise those edges and find it, just kick back relax and enjoy in a comfy lawn chair.
Cloudy days of course are better.

Having lived on 2 continents, & grown up on the water, I'm in the far, far too many to count category !
