I've been lucky enough to fish in quite a few different places around the globe (being in the Navy allows you to do that kind of thing). I'd have to say of all the fishing adventures I've had, the most memorable was marlin fishing off the tip of Baja California. Something about fighting a fish that outweighs you for over an hour and a half leaves a lasting impression. Me and a buddy caught three striped marlin that day ranging from 120lbs up to the only one we kept which weighed in at a grand total of 168lbs. Blues and blacks are the ones that get up over 1000lbs. I looked up the world record striped one time and I don't believe it went over 300lbs. Could be wrong. I'll have to post a pic up when I get back home which is less than two weeks away!!!
It ain't the size of the gun but the placement of the bullet.

the funnest thing that i have caught on fishing tackle has to be a soft shell turtle about 15" in diameter. that bugger could fight. i generally only go after trout of all kinds.

Any TROUT for me also, but if I had to pick one I'd said BROOK.

I would have to say the steelhead that come from the pacific ocean. Something about catching this fish makes me smile.. :)
Must be mentally focused at all times!!

Have fished the Boulders a few times, but not in several years.

Biggest Brookie I ever caught was from there.

I grew up catching brookies from the streams around my house so now I like to chase different things now. If it has spines or teeth to get back at you with them I'm all over it.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell
the difference.

Mine would have to be the Lake Trout. Nothing like jigging in a lake (fishlake or flaming gorge) and not nowing if the next fish you hook could go 40+ lbs.

Love it.

Next to that is a acrobatic rainbow. but then again the 25lb chinook that i caught last year was an amazing fighter.

So I guess I should say my favorite is a swiming fish. LOL.
