    Smallmouth bass on Texas rigged tubes or wacky rigs.
    Then walleye on anything they'll take!

    Silver salmon also called Coho. We hit them in mid-late summer. I fish out of Valdez and even right off the bank. We're allowed 6 per day and we limit almost every time. Too much fun. One of the perks of living in Alaska. The downside is it's -18 degrees today and it's along way til salmon fishing season.

    Bucketlist fish for me fly-fishing... I imagine they would be a lot of fun on top-water and a 7 weight fly-rod.

    I caught a few in FL on conventional gear, and a 2 lbs peacock would drown a 6 lbs black bass if you tied them tail to tail... Biggest one I ever caught was in the 4 lbs range... Better tasting than black bass as well.

    • Tarpon are one of the sportiest fish I have had the pleasure of catching (conventional gear)... Would love to chase them on the fly.
    • Anything in the tuna family puts up a solid pull on the rod... Lot's of action and good fighting fish, you cannot beat tuna.
    • Watching a large rainbow sip a small dry-fly off the surface is good stuff.
    • American shad on the fly are a blast. HUGE grab and extremely strong pulling fish for their size (I thought I had hooked into a salmon on the first one I caught).
    • Steelhead... Something about them. I have yet to have a fish that is more enjoyable or exciting to catch than steelhead on the fly. There is that moment when the heart stops for a beat, and then picks up three after the realization that there is a FISH ON!

    As mentioned above, I think Peacock bass would be a heck of a lot of fun...
