    Top five favorites?

    I was just wondering, what are your top five favorite fish to catch? Also, what would be your dream fish to catch? I'll get the ball rolling with mine:

    5. Crappie
    4. White/yellow bass
    3. Bluegill
    2. Perch
    1. Smallmouth bass

    Dream catch: A giant Muskie. Big toothy critter. They are in the pike family. Think something along the lines of a freshwater barracuda.

    That's it for me, how about your favorites.

    Hi El_carpo
    The only fish I would like to really catch is a jewie (mulloway) in tassie. Been trying to catch one for 10 years down in tassie, have not heard of one being caught commercially or any other way.
    They catch plenty of the buggers 200km away and we get all the species they seem to catch as by catch when they are fishing for them
    anyway thats what dreams are for i suppose

    A big Spaniard or any large pelagic for that matter. I've had the runs but just never managed to connect as yet, or been bitten clean through.

    I'd also like to catch a big jewie.

    Re: Top five favorites?

    At the moment, my favourite fish is anything that is kind enough to take my bait. At the moment that seems to be bream and whiting. I am going to make a big effort targetting bream the next few months and then flathead in the spring.

    1. Spaniards on livies
    2. Barra tight up in a snag
    3. Mangrove Jack on lure
    4. Queenies on poppas
    5. Red Emp. for eating

    Re: Top five favorites?

    1. Australian Bass
    2. Saratoga
    3. Golden Perch
    4. Flathead

    It's a bit hard living in Toowoomba and only fishing the salt twice a year on average. Not that many differnet species of fish in dams up here so the list is pretty boring.
    I hope to add Murry Cod to the list this year.
