    Lots of good walleye, pike and brook trout up around there forshure lots of other different stuff. Lately been really getting into the other game fish and its been really exiting, really expands on the sport then just the same walleye and pike all the time which is why I been travalling more southward for my fishing adventures.

    Carp ive heard are really good fighters, get to a good size, large numbers and are real neat looking too.

    Cool

    Interesting idea ... species I've got here in Ontario over the years.
    Rainbow Trout
    Walleye
    Sauger and maybe Blue Walleye (we had quite the discussion, caught in Lake Erie 30 years ago, looked like a sauger or skinny walleye but blue)
    Yellow Perch
    Largemouth Bass
    Smallmouth Bass
    Rock Bass
    Pumpkinseed
    Northern Pike
    White Bass
    Freshwater Drum (sheephead)
    White Sucker
    Creek Chub
    Goby
    Longnose Gar (with a bow 30+ years ago)
    Black Crappie
    White Crappie
    Coho Salmon
    Bluegill
    Green Sunfish
    Channel Catfish
    Flathead Catfish
    Bullhead
    White Perch
    Carp (bow and rod - never throw these back, they are destructive and make good fertilizer)
    Silver Bass
    Lamprey (caught when smelting - tossed that ugly sucker in the fire!)

    Wanted in Ontario would be Brown, Brook and some of the trout and Salmons, Muskie

    Outside Ontario: Yellowfin Majorra, Pompano, barracuda, Mangrove snapper, red snapper and some misc small snappers , Jacks, cowfish a couple good size Jack Crevallie (?) and one "those are rare and protected, throw it back fast the fines are huge" fish (due to legal paranoia no further details!!! and it went back FAST)

    Wanted outide: bonefish (I have seen them, usually just after they saw me and were make a big wake at 100mph away), tarpon, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) on the Fly rod if I can.
