    I'll take any edible fish, but given a choice between that and catfish I'll take the catfish.

    Well, if I lived on the ocean where they were accesible, I would love to fish for goliath grouper on a daily basis. The fight from them looks incredible! :crazy:

    fishing is fishing, I on several occasions went out specifically for sun fish or perch, and actually cooked them right there, spent th whole day doin that, FUN FUN FUN. I would love to go fish for peacock bass above all tho. but would enjoy a good sturgeon fight, a 4 lb brown trout on 1lb test would be fun to, would like to fish for redfish, tarpin, tuna, marlin, maybe even walley or muskie. I just like fishing.

    I was brought up to fish for everything that swims and hunt anything that walks, crawls, or flies. I love every bit of it too:smile2:

    Besides cats I would have to go with crappie. Aint much better than some good crappie fillets.

    As someone that rarely eats what I catch bass is what I typically go for.It's always fun to use a topwater popper and just watch the bass jump out of the water all over your lure.

    Travelers Rest,
    I grew up in northern Greenville County SC, around Lake Jocassee, catching largemouth, smallmouth, and lake trout. During my teens, I worked during the summer on my uncle's farm in Laurens County where he had a catfish pond. So naturally, I catfished all the time and it's the only thing I've really stuck with all these years. BUT, if I absolutely had to choose another fish, it'd be crappie. Lake Greenwood is FULL of 'em and there's nothing like catching them on either a live 2"-3" minnow, a small jig, or a small crankbait.

    If I'm not catfishing my pick would be walleye. I really love walleye fishing.

    Bait first, nothing quite like a nice fresh chunk of cut bait.

    Carp second, catching them accidently happens. But trying to catch a good one on purpose is harder than you might think.

    Plus they have awesome line screaming runs, great fun on light tackle.

    Last, it seems the bigger ones know every log, snag, rock, rebar and way to cut, tie up or snag your line possible.
    I've had several large ones on, but lost them.

    Plus bait for carp is easy to make and carry an assortment with when I'm cat fishing. A ziplock bag with a couple of different flavored doughballs, and maybe a small container of canned corn with a splash of vanilla.

    Carp have several times turned what would have been no fun skunked days into drag screaming excitement.
