    wondering what % of fisherman groups we have. the hog hunters. meaning target big fish most of the time. blues flatheads with big baits.

    the channel runners. guys like me that drift for eaters and just fish for cats. picking up some nice ones and fish for big ones less often.

    or just the fishin for fun folks. that dont have boats and $200 setups and are happy with a 6 pack and a lawn chair and livers. (rest in peace Dan Eggelston aka eggman. i miss ya)

    ill toss in a misc group.

    now this is primarily for cats. i fish for smallmouth and pond fish for largemouths often. but primary type is on boat channel fishing. the last group is the folks that toss on a worm and just fish for whatevers biting.

    take in mind. this is most of the time. so just your primary fishing type.

    I voted Channel runner cause that's closest to me...but I'm somewhere in between channel runner and hog hunter. Usually have a couple baits out for average fish and eaters but usually also have at least one big bait out for boss hog...:wink:

    Channel runner. Most of the time I have people on the boat that don't get out that often. My goal is to just put em on fish and let the good times roll. LOL!

    I think I am a combination of all, I am hog hunting but while I hog hunt, I will catch whatever is biting to pass the time.

    Guess I'm not much of a hog hunter,I go mostly just to relax and hopefully catch enough eating size cats to put in freezer for later use. Such as when there is 6 " of snow on the fishing is slow.But I sure wouldn't turn down a big ol hog if it came along.

    I'd say Hog's but in order to get hogs, you have to catch bait. A cattin trip is like 2 trips in one for me.

    I would have to say I would be the last one I love fishing for everything I can catch but at the same time I love catfishing too and catching big ones, but the last one describes me best if there biting i love to catch them.

    Pigs, it's all about the pigs:big_smile: I enjoy catching fish, but if I got a choice between 1 50# and 10 5#s, I'll take the 50 any day:smile2:

    Since I CPR most of the flats and blues, I enjoy the occasional nice size channel to make sure the fryer still works:wink:

    While anything that pulls back will make me happy, I resolve to put cut or live bait on one rig. It will be just as easy to get skunked on the biggun's as the runts.

    I consider myself a hog hunter. I like catching fish period, but always persue the big ones. This year I want to go for big flatheads and break my PB. I love catching channel cats and practice CPR on the big ones. Usually I'm fishing 80% bank and 20% boat.:big_smile:
