Re: What is your one fish
Rainbow / Steelhead Trout, big ones (if I had a choice) because there is never a dull moment while you search for them and especially after you hook one.
Rainbow are the only trout where I live and they are almost all migratory. There are some who go to sea and some who winter over in the large estuaries. They are harder to handle than any of the salmon species. Granted a really big king will test your ability to control a heavy fish as will a lively Silver, but rainbows almost always go berserk.
Another benefit of the trout is that you don't catch so many to give you joint and wrist pain. That is not the case when you get into large numbers of salmon...........
