    Smallmouths in freshwater.
    Striped Bass in salt.

    These have been my 2 favorites for a long time!

    A month ago this would have been a difficult decision. But one trip down south changed all that.

    Bonefish.

    LOL...I think my answer is a real cop-out, but it is truthful. If the water is cold and clear, all that fish needs is a tail and I will be on him like a tick on a fat dogs butt.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Redfish, I only caught a few on a fly rod and it was an experience I won't forget

    Wow...what ridiculously hard question but after a bit of thought, I am going with reds.

    While the fish is fun once it's hooked, it's everything else that fishing for reds entails. Flats, flat boats, visually spotting a target, long casts to a small window, and quite often a visual take. On top of that, let's not forget the amazing variety of coastal wildlife one typically sees while fishing for them.

    I am sure bonefish might be similar but I've never fished for them so I can't say for sure.

    Gotta say trout. Flyfishing culture is built around them and it means trip to really neat places. I love bluegills, though. They are bread and butter.

    Bones are all that, for sure. And, like you, it's the sight fishing that makes the game for me. I was in my element wading the flats, stalking. Very visual. And it doesn't hurt that each hookup is a trip (or two, or three) deep into the backing.

    Reds come as close as anything, though I admit to not yet chasing carp. I suspect wading for the golden bones in Michigan's U.P. might be fun. But, think about it. Michigan or the Bahamas? You decide.
