Bass. :)

I can see all these catfish guys going up in arms because it's not listed as "catfish" on the poll. :D

They're fanatics and quite frankly, they scare me sometimes. :D :p

Are catfish among the bottom feeders? That offends me, not really though. However catfish have been caught on cranks. I don't troll for I's but they are caught that way too.

Nice poll, interested on how it turns out.

TROUT!

I go with trout, there might not be many places in ohio to catch them, but those places along with the trout and people you meet while fishing there make it my #1 fish in ohio.

Steelhead come in about a micrometer after.

I'm a recent transplant in Ohio after living all my life in Michigan, stelmon, and I didn't know (or even understand) the fervor over catfish here in Ohio at first.

I can say that it's real and has even gotten me to want to give it a shot sometime after listening to them for so long. :D

Ray,

If you have never been to michigan-sportsman.com
Check it out, it seems to be the equivalent of GFO in michigan. the guys from michigan don't have saugeyes, they've just got the walleyes up north.

OUCH!!

Bottom feeders, where i come from thems fightin words..lol
I like a lot of those bottomfeeders, channel cats, flatheads and carp...the biggest GAME fish in Ohio...musky are in that department too, but i dont chase them yet(plus flatheads and carp still grow larger than musky here)!

Glad to see the old GFO guys back togther..HOPEFULLY we can keep this forum to FISHING topics only?

Stelmon, you sure know how to rile up the locals. :D

Like putting a stick in a hornet's nest...lol

Please excuse him. We try to limit his internet time, but occassionally, he tricks us and heads for the local library. :eek:

If you guys would show him one of those Hogg flatties, he'd never swim those waters.

I'm not sure if they have any.

Edit: I shouldn't just say one or two people might have pics. There's quite a few guys that have some great pics of Flatheads!

alright guys,
this was a post just for what kind of fish you like to fish for that I was trying to create talk. I am not from Ohio and didn't know there was different names for different fish. So, if anyone cares to make another one, go 4 it:)
