    Here in Ohio and most other typical reservoirs: Bass

    On certain lakes and rivers: Stripers!! Nothin' like hooking into a 35lber when he's in the mood to go deep :D

  9. I love the walleye and perch for eating. But, I'm a pig. I want immediate, on going gratification. SO, give me the crappie in the spring. When I get enough of them in the freezer to give me at least a taste of fresh fish during the winter, I go after the walleye and perch.

    I've fished from here to the mountains of New York, the boundry waters of Minnesota, Minsesota lakes, Michigan, and Kentucky but I just love catching a bunch of fish when I go out. Crappie do that even though I often catch and release.
     
  10. Bass - Bass - and more bass.

    Hopelessly addicted since the age of 13...

  13. Pike...in particular BIG pike....i like the challenge of finding a big one
     
  14. Guys you know Ill fish for about anything that swims. I WALL I you need to start fishin WB. At least you get the best of both worlds and then some. Dont know of too many lakes in Ohio that offer such a wide variety.;)
     
  15. I inherited a boat last year (19' bow rider) that had sat for 3 1/2 years uncovered and unprotected. I had briefly thought about getting a lake erie boat before, but, not seriously.

    The boat turned into a fun project with my two nephews and after about 5 weeks of repair work we were ready to take it out.

    First trip was perchin'. 4 of us limited in 1 hr. and 45 minutes with the smallest keeper 8 inches and lots of jumbos on ultra-light tackle. My favorite fish became perch.

    Last trip of the year we decided to chase some walleye out of Vermillion. Terrible day with 4-6 waves and stained water. No-one was hooking up as I heard on the radio. Then my buddy boated a nice 3 1/2 lb walleye and then my nephew boated a 16 inch White bass. After 2 more hours of nothing, I hooked into a 27" 7 1/2 lb walleye.

    Now my favorite has to be the eyes when casting or drifting (don't care for trolling, I like to be more personal with the fish).

    If I run a recapitulation sheet, based on boat cost and all expenses, over a 5 year span I find that walleye and perch cost me about $38.33 per lb. And that is based on 300 lbs. usable fish per year and contributing costs donated by guests. Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Pike, and Muskie tend to pose an infinite cost as their return is strictly pleasure, albeit an immeasureable value it still appears, on paper, as a loss. I do find, however, that Talipia advertised at Cosco at $5.99 lb, taking travel costs into consideration with depreciating factors in regards to other necessary groceries gathered at the same time of acquisition, costs about $6.50 lb. I have to say it's Talipa hands down.
    Sure would like to catch one of those Talipia bastards on a fishing rod.
