Just seems natural that this topic should go along with favorite species.

I like to fly fish dry flies and nymphs in small rivers and streams for brookies the most.  Once the water warms up and that turns off in late June, I like to switch over to spin casting and trolling streamer flies from my canoe or belly boat in ponds and lakes for brookies and bows.

I also like to fly fish bass poppers in the lily pads and cat-tails on the surface at that last hour before sunset during the hotest part of August.  The bass usually are very aggressive then and the bite can become quite insane at times! ;D

Any kind of topwater bite!  I'm a bass enthusiast.  Mostly fish with jigs, plastics, spinnerbaits, and topwater.  Bout covers it!

Oh, I love to fly fish too for anything that wants to bite!

This thread could go on for ever.  I could post another 50,000 times on it alone, LOL! ;D

For Smallie's I like tube's & jig's.  I really like any soft plastic's. I hardly ever use plug's anymore.

For pike I like a spinerbait right over the top of the weeds.

For bass I like a tube jig.

For panfish I like anything that catches them there all fun.
A 17 yr. old that is addicted already.

I would swear I allready answered this and maybe I did.  Anyway,  I love to fish crankbaits.  There is nothing better than your bait getting slammed by the Bass and Pike!!

Everything wny angler said.

Most favorite though is pike and shiners under a large bobber.

Hey Jon, wny angler - where do you guys float drift boats for steelheads?  Do you go to Pulaski?  Or are there other places that the fish run?

what i meant by  drifting a float was --fishing egg sacs under a bobber (float) with the current--i'm a land lubber,i like the feel of the cold water against my waders

Me too.  I mostly fish with waders or wade wet when the water is warm enough.  I also have a float tube and a canoe to get into lakes and ponds.  I have never drift boat fished.  Saw it on some outdoor programs and it looked fun.  Thought that was what you were talking about...
