What do you like to fish for?

My favorite fish to fish for is definitely sturgeon! Fantastic fight and truly amazing creatures! My biggest was 10 and a half feet. (released). Also got a 42 lbs catfish, 467 pound marlin, 32 pound striped bass, and a 312 pound seven gill shark. I like big fish! But sturgeon fishing has my heart. So what do you fish for?

My wife and I go to the Texas coast at least twice a year generally - and we pretty well fish for whatever is biting. We catch a lot of 4-5' sharks - 40" to 42" Redfish and an occasional stingray (weighing up to or beyond 80 pounds). All this from fishing off a pier that extends about 1/3 of a mile out into the Gulf of Mexico.

That's the fun part of fishing in salt water...you never know what you're going to pull in.

At Smokey Mts its trout with a spincast or fly rod. Caught 32" brown several years ago in Smokey Mountain National Park. Would have been a record but I gutted it on the spot and put it in a cooler before going by the ranger station. That's okay - it tasted great!

In CO and WY its trout again but only with the fly rod; smaller but very tasty. Thinking about Yellowstone Lake next year and going for the big Lake Trout.

At home it Bass with a spn cast rig.

Just fishing makes the difference.

Drive safe - Richard

Don’t fish as much as I’d like, but hired a guide and went out with my two grandsons. We hit everything just right, choppy water, storm front coming through, and lots of walleyes. The four of us each caught our limits of 6 fish in a couple hours. All the fish were between 18-20 inches. Not likely we will ever have a morning like that again. It will be a great memory for me and the boys. We had walleye for supper 3 nights.

I do not think there is a better eating fish than the walleye or it's cousin the perch. I miss fishing them up north but like the Florida weather better in winter.

I agree. My favorite lure is a one hundred dollar bill cast in the direction of https://moreysmarkets.com/ I always get a hit on the first cast and I reel in about 5 pounds of frozen filleted Walleye. I have to admit, I enjoy the fight the box tape gives me when I open the box. Must be something primal.

It comes to the house in about 2 days in a insulated box with dry ice. I put the fish in the freezer and the dry ice in my wife's flower garden. The dry ice slowly feeds the flowers with additional plant food called CO2.

Agree with Sturgeon - caught lots of them by the Astoria bridge over the Columbia river. As for eating, Sturgeon, Halibut, Walleye in the order.
