Mine is a toss up. It is sort of trout (rainbows and browns) and then pike. It is hard to say, I really enjoy variety!

Bullheads are smaller catfish with BIG heads, the easiest way to tell if it is a bullhead is its belly will be yellow.
bullheads have a flat tail whereas a channel cat's tail is forked. Hope this helps clarify. It was definitely a channel cat.

Ironcially, the red line on the fish holds the oil, which is the healthiest reason to eat fish...Omega 3 fatty acids...however, as some of our friends have already pointed out, it is also where contaminents can conentrate...skin, and fat.

Thanks Nawanda ;) I know there are bigger ones than that in the lake where i caught this one. One of the workers told me last year he found about a 25 to 30 pound catfish laying on the bank. Someone had caught it and didn't want it i guess.

I really don't have a clear favorite, but wild rainbow trout in rivers are close to the top. Northern Pike are a favorite of mine as well, and I'm very protective of them and I generally release them all. With the exception of Spinney Mountain in some respects, the campaign of hate, disinformation, and extermination that has been waged against pike by the CDOW and to a lesser extent TU is unallowable. Keep the limit very high in Spinney and please if pike are removed, relocate them. Otherwise, encourage the release of larger pike and please manage fisheries for them where trout are not meant to be, such as warmer impoundments.

I like that name. I tried to think of something similar for myself, but the best I could do was "Too much beer in his arteries."

And I say who cares what Fish You catch anyways right.

Hello everyone, new to the site. Have been following the posts for some time at work, but I am not allowed to post. Great site. Favorite species would have to be Walleye. Just to good to eat not to fish for them!
