Default Re: What is your one fish

I am a carp guy and all...love 'em, spend most of my fishing time chasing them and have caught carp in 8 or 9 states now. Fun thing about carp, they are so different from state to state/body of water to body of water that you can get the entire sight fishing gamut down with just one species. meat eaters on lake mi, finicky clam fish on the big C...mulberries! You gotta love carp.

That said...I'd go Redfish. Only chased them once, but loved it. Bottom line...MUCH easier to catch than carp, MUCH more aggressive...seeing that mouth suddenly loom and engulf you fly is awesome. Plus, you can catch them on both subsurface, and on poppers and the like. And...the environments are so cool. flats, marshes, grass...you see dolphins and rays and lots of cool things when fishing for reds (manatees!). I'd go reds. hands down.

but I dream of catching a big nasty black drum!
