I will echo the Lake Trout: Do 90% trolling for mine, only jig when the surface it dead calm. Nothing like going after 25lbs + fish on 12lb line, have been dragging T-60 flatfish behind a downrigger for a long time. Big lures = Big Fish

2nd Place would be a Splake, Hybrid between a Lake Trout and Brook Trout, need that cold deep water.

rather than a certain type of fish, i'm more of a specific environment. I love fishing Streams/Rivers! It's an absolute blast for me. Pristine mountain lakes give it a good run for a VERY close second place though :thumb .

But as of right now, Browns & Tiger Trout are my favorites - I can't get enough of any type of fish though.

P.S. A huge thank you and a merry christmas goes out to 9er. The guy is an absolute saint! Through PM's on this website (So same goes to you Brett =D> ) 9er gave me tons of specific info. on where I could start fishing to get back into it and what to use and how to use certain things in certain environments. Needless to say he's a fishing GOD and has really gotten me back into the sport big time! (I've broken a lot of personal records with catching tiger trout to learning to fly fish to catching record weights in several species... and it all goes out to you ole pal =D> =D> .

My favorite is a high mountain Brookie! But Kokanee are quickly becoming my favorite. I will fish for the Lakers if someone twists my arm though.
