    I'm in agreement on sight fishing for carp. I haven't targeted smallmouth yet, so until then it'll stay with the ol' golden bones.

    Thanks,I have yet to hook a carp on fly gear. They're soo spooky but they fight great in my experience with reg tackle.

    The fun thing about fishing river smallmouths is that they are almost ALWAYS hungry! They are largely indiscriminate eaters, pouncing on most any worthy morcel of food that drifts or swims their way.... They are also pretty hardy, so you rarely see one floating belly-up after being released following a long fight. For catch & release fun, with lots of action, some leaps, and some strong runs, they are hard to beat as a relatively abundant gamefish.

    would have to say panfish. Bluegills, Shellcrackers, crappie, pumpkin seed, and goggle eye/warmouths. Never know which one and on light tackle they are fun.

    It's a toss-up between Freshwater Drum and Channel Cats. They both readily take a fly, they're strong, and they get big!

    Bluegills!
    The big ones are seldom easy to catch, but the little ones can salvage a bad day of fishing.

    Smallmouth for me. They just are a lot of fun to find and fight. Tied for second are channel cats and carp, mostly for the amazing fight.

    Which ever is closest but some I really love are big Carp, Muskies and Northern's in the spring, and for sure Crappies, White Bass in the spring and Bluegills anytime! Come to think of it Smallies rate high too.
