hard to pic just 3 i chose lakers perch and pike, but i really do like to fish for crappie salmon  and trouts.what i fish for really depends on what time of the winter it is and what lakes are frozen.usually my first ice spots are for trouts salmon or pike then when the big lake freezes i fish for perch pike and lakers. late ice,when the big lake is unsafe i move to a smaller lake to fish crappies and pike

My favorite, the Crappie even though I'm hoping the Walleye will move up on my favorites list eventually.

Possibly multiple "Other" could be   1. Channel Cats
                                                        2. White Fish (Lake)
                                                        3. Kokanee  (Blueback) But Trout or Salmon cover these, though very different.
                                                        4. Other


Lots of people catch lots of those three. But, no squawk here ~ Just trin' to help and in that light, the Poll could be modified by the Author, which will open another can-o-worms, ha.

I had to pick bluegill/sunfish and crappie cause that's about all we've got in the waters I fish.(Not complaining, I love 'em) I also picked "other", although I really don't target catfish, a 5 or 6 lber is a lot of fun on a panfish pole.  I love perch also, but I only get to a good perch lake once every few years.
I'd rather be :icefish:

My votes go for crappie, bluegill and perch. But I am willing to catch whatever bites when fishing!

Lake Sturgeon.  They are only available for 2 weeks (or less) in February, and spearing is the only way to take them.  It's a huge deal around here.

i had to vote for crappie right off the bat... they are fun,taste great,bountiful in many ponds and reservoirs around here...and when i take my little brother fishing they never disappoint,ready and willing to bite and put up a fight. second fav is bluegill,only because it can be a challenge when they want to get finicky and you really have to finesse them into biting.. third went to the ol trout! i have loved stream fishing trout for years since i was young and i can pull the stockies out of a local pond left and right,way easier then a trout stream..

I think you need to really up-size your northern bait if da perch are stealing it.  ;)
