Not me, I couldn't catch water if I fell out of the boat.

Before moving to Texas, I was definitely more an all-around fisherman and would go after panfish, perch, crappie, pike, walleye, Northern Pike, Musky or whatever else would bite but since I have been down here I have focused about 99% of my time on the water for Black Bass in order to keep raising my PB.

+1 on Richard Gene. I was thinking of him when I started this this thread. I have started to spend more time and effort to learn how to catch multiple species of fish on a regular basis. I am impressed by how Richard Gene does it and that he doesn't break the bank in his efforts.

I don't have a choice what bites my lures - small lures are capable of catching many fish species on the same outing. The problem (and challenge) arises when fighting large fish on light tackle. Unless everything is perfect (line, drag, gear ratio, knowing how to play a fish), the big ones will get away.

And that is why I don’t use light tackle when I fish, unless I am going after a line class record. I can’t stand it when a big one gets away. roflmao Losing big ones gives me nightmares.

I fish largemouth, smallmouth, striper, hybrid, whites, cats and trout. It depends on the time of year and where I am.

Side Note: I have caught many of other types of bigger fish while fishing for the Bluegill! hooked

I only go out fishing for bass but I might catch a lot of other things doing that.
I have not kept a fish and taken it home to eat in probably 40 years. I did a couple years ago keep some fish I caught and took them to a pond a buddy had built to stock his pond. Now all those bass are huge and he treats them like his kids. Hands feeds them and provides them with everything a bass would love.
