Personally, whatever bites and makes for a fun excursion. I have targeted bass my entire life and will keep doing so. But, ever since I met my wife she has me hooked on cats. I just love the 'life' of fishing and on whatever means it takes to get that ever elusive monster. Hence Koldkut's ability to get me into fly fishing. Using a fly brings about a new world of fishing and I'm hooked.

It's hard to beat the scenic surroundings where trout are caught. There's nothing better than trolling flies in a lake from a float tube. A floating easy chair. Then you top it off with a mess of orange meated fillets covered it a cajun mix sizzling in the pan for breakfast the next morning. Hard to beat the fight of a nice bluegill. Wish there were more in this state. Also hard to beat a mess of bluegill fillets right out of the frying pan.

Kokanee are my favorit followed by brown trout then bows. For frsh water at least i just moved fron the coast so i also love salmon, halibut, stugeon, stripers, ling cod, rock cod, just to name a few. But still nothing beast all four line going off as you pass over a school of kokanee. You and your budy spilling beer trying to get all 4 fish to the boat and not have any pop off not tangle anything up yeah it's a blast.

Does anybody think walleye are kind of an overatted fish? Ya, they taste good and can get to be pretty big, but they do not fight much. I caught a 10 pound eye out of Boulder res once and brought it right in with no problem, it was like I was reeling in a wet towel. ???

Pike has got to be the best. I take a trip once a year to Canada to fish for pike. This year I caught a 40 inched that took forever to get in the boat. Biggest fish I ever caught.
