depending... if I feel like a meal in the mid to late spring time or teaching someone to fly cast and teh other basics, I have to give the nod to bluegills. Other than that its smallies... with the occasional pike mixed in. Let me tell ya, a 33" pike on a 5wt rod is a good time!

He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman.

Bass are my first choice most of the time, but in the waters I fish a mixed bag is always possible, so I never overlook any opportunity! I've caught some nice size panfish while fishing for bass, and even some Stripers in the tidal waters!

Of course I've caught some nice bass while fishing for panfish also! wink.gif

BDH, I have to express how deeply disappointed I am to not see pike as a choice in the poll. unsure.gif blink.gif dry.gif wallbash.gif

For that reason, I have to choose "Other".

Of course, bass are a very close second.

I clicked "Bass Species," but I'll go with some of the other guys and say that it can often be a toss-up between them and pike, and it is truly hard to beat tubing a glass-smooth pond in the evening for 'gills...
Here I go again, can't make up my mind, kind of like a woman (right BDH j_k.gif ).
