Are you a multi species angler?

Recommended Posts

I love fishing for Northern Pike.

Also, I like catching crappies when I can find them and catch some slabs in the 11-12 inch range

Yeah crappie are good. Instead of pike for me its the musky. Do pike smell as bad as musky do?

Probably (all fish stink). I've never been musky fishing though, so I wouldn't know for sure

Haha, you think all fish smell until you've smelt a musky. Any other fish smells beautiful after you've smelt a musky lol. Its like a mixture of blood  and steel  :o    its wierd...

Living in Northern Michigan presents an interesting selection / collection of species options. Even though the open water fishing season is fairly brief as compared to most of our more southerly located fishing brother and sisters, so many of my local lakes include a very nice list of assorted game fish to chose from.

The regular panfish choices including white and black crappie, assorted sunfishes and some very decent yellow perch are almost always available. But often times I am fishing in water that produces both Large and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike as well as Muskie and Tiger Muskie.

It is very cool when one of these "non-target" species ends up in the net. It it also a bummer to get bit-off - especially when you're throwing a bait you're not particularly fond of losing :'(

So Yes, I am definitely a mutli-species angler - although most of the time the fish make that choice for me........ 8-)

I'm primarily an offshore angler.  Bass fishing is so darned different that it's drives me absolutely crazy at times.  It's just a different method of locating fish for me.  Takes much more patience/practice.

My next big hurdle is offshore flyfishing for sailfish  ;D

Smallmouth #1 for me with Crappies a close second. Usually pound the crappies until May then hit Erie hard for smallies.

    I love fishing for saltwater fish, especially Flounder (nothing compares to the way they taste)!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

    Even though I have not had a chance to do it yet I wouldn't mind going after some Crappie.

I love bass fishing and catching both largemouths and smallies, but pike are my very favorite fish to catch. They get huge, hit like freight trains, and fight like mad. I also love catching real trout (not stocked catchables), especially in a river. I love walleyes, catfish, anything pretty much.

My real best love is ice fishing, especially for pike and lake trout, both of which I fanatically pursue in the winter. Perch, crappie, and bluegill round out my list, I flat out love them all. My favorites in order would be.

1. Pike

2. Real Trout (including lake trout)

3. Bass

4. Walleye

5. Catfish

6. Crappie

7. Perch

8. Bluegill

Anything that will give me a good fight. Around here. mainly Large Mouth Bass, Catfish (these are real fun sometimes), Trout (in the mountains), Gar (got to get into these more this year).

Sometimes I will hit up Crappie and Bream as well. Though the bream are mainly when I got my girls with me.

I love bass fishing, but catfishing is my mistress. I also enjoy fishing for any kind of panfish and saltwater fishing, especially king fishing.

Living in a coastal state, I have the best of both worlds. Many different species of freshwater fish, the shore 1.5 hours away for fishing and crabbing.

For a week or 2 in the Spring and then again in the fall I hit the crappie for the skillet and maybe a trip or two for catfish but mainly Bass.  I'll try for some walleye every once in a while but I haven't got them figured out quite yet.  If the Bass bite is not dead I'm chasing them normally...
