I mostly concentrate on one species of fish and most of my time and tackle is geared that direction but I always enjoy it when I catch something else. How many on here would say that they are a multi species fisherman and have put in the time and training to catch all different kinds of fish?

Primary for me are channel and blue cats year round, Big Blues in fall and winter just for fun. Channels any size and up to 5 pounds blues for table fare. Crappie anytime I am not catfishing. Bass just to pass the time and hybrids/whites when nothing else will bite. Summer I fish for Carp/buffalos to freeze for winter bait when shad get really hard to come by in winter. I only fish rod and reel, have nothing against any other method. Just fish for relaxation and the thrill of fighting a big blue with a R&R.

The diversity of fish in Texas is one of the main reasons I like fishing in the state. Decades ago I started fishing for records and a big part of that is learning to catch different species of fish. I have records for over 60 species of fish, so I guess that makes me a multi-species fisherman. roflmao To accomplish my record goals I have learned to fish with a rod and reel, fly rod, pole and line, handline, and bow and arrow. Teaching other anglers, especially kids, about the different fish species available in Texas, is one of my greatest joys.

I will fish for anything that bites, especially if it puts up a good fight! Whenever I'm looking to fish for food I'll target hybrids, white bass, catfish or crappie but if I'm just looking to go out and have some fun then it doesn't matter to me what's on my line. I've spent whole days targeting only carp, only bluegill, only LMB etc and had a blast but the best days I've had on the water have been from multi-species sessions where every bite has me wondering what's on the hook.

Have you ever considered writing a book?
It would be a shame not to share all that knowledge!
I could probably write one on how not catch a fish! roflmao


Just one more cast!

I fish for bass, crappie and catfish. I was a die hard bass guy for years. Tournaments and all that. I still love to bass fish but just for fun. I really enjoy crappie fishing with jigs now too. Best of all is the eating afterwards! Lol. Catfish are awesome too, I love catching blues when they are on! Flatheads are a wonderful fish! I got really into chasing them on the Trinity river and I caught some monsters. I am one of those guys who will jump from one fish to another according to the season or how I feel. I have the gear to do it all. I have a bass boat with everything I need ready to go. And a 16’ Jon boat I use for crappie and cats. I just love to fish!
