Think that depends on the lake we are fishing and sometimes the time of year. Lot of catfish on water sheds, gar in oxbows and sometimes the white bass are a real pain in the rear!!!

In SC it is most likely the White Perch. They have crowded out the White Bass and DNR has declassified them as game fish in hopes of reducing their numbers. It is hard to fish with minnow in some of our lakes without catching a boat load of these things before a crappie can get to the bait.

Yellow bass. Can't stand em. Once they start biting, there's nothing to do but move to a different spot.

So this yellow bass is like a white bass basically? I've never seen one in my parts or even heard of one. Interesting.....

Depends on when & where I'm fishing, but Bass, Catfish, Freshwater Drum, Bluegill & Warmouth, White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass make up the majority of "other" species caught when Crappie fishing. And it doesn't seem to matter much whether I'm fishing a jig or a minnow, as to how often one of these "other" fish will be caught.

Depends on which pond I'm fishing - could be pumpkinseed, bass, bullhead, perch or trout and once a really big snapping turtle which was really fun.

Catfish and once in a while a Bass. But the funny thing is, when fishing for Walleye catch almost as many crappie as catfish.

Bass would be the #1 other fish when crappie fishing for me but white perch are a tight second.

Freshwater Drum is commonly referred to as a "gaspergou" (or gaspergoo), along with several other "nicknames".

As a youngster, and up until I was in my late 20's, I heard the Freshwater Drum called a "white perch" :Doh::yikes :Rofl

1. Large mouth bass
2. Drum perch
3. Yellow bass
4. Channel catfish
5. Blue gills
6. Walleyes
O, I will have to drop all these down in order by 1 to get get to my new #1, sticks and stumps. I seem to catch them the most.

We call them RockHeads. They have 2 bones (seems I recall they are light blue in color) in their skull that they supposedly rub together to make a grunting noise.

Yep, freshwater drum. Wanted to see if anyone knew them. Lake Somerville here in Texas has them in abundance.

I forgot about the white bass, they go between the yellow bass and the channel cats.

Yellow bass and drum. In the winter if I'm casting I almost always catch some big drum.

It turns out I've seen a "gaspergoo" up close and personal then. We fished Lake Eerie earlier this year for walleye and my fishing buddy caught a freshwater drum there. Huh, small world.

I'm guessing you mean other "targeted" species and not surprise bycatch. In that case it would be Smallmouth (acrobats) and 'Gill. I catch a little of everything from time to time, even Warmouth on crankbaits. Go figure.

usually bluegill and occassionally a small (tiny) largemouth.

If it's caught from Erie, it's called a sheephead. Anywhere south of the mason-dixon line, it's a gaspergoo. Same fish, just diffrent names for diffrent parts of the country. Like crappie/ croppie/ specks/ sacs. The name changes the farther south you get.:dono

Here when fishing for crappie we also catch catfish, Black bass, yellow bass, Gaspergoo, white bass, blue gills, goggle eyes and other kinds of Bream! Also the yellow bass here are small enough to not have enough red in them to worry about taking out and they eat really good! Also I am a picky fish eater and if they taste fishy I am not eating them!

we especially catch all these sometimes in the same general spot when spoon jigging! Usually this is in 30' of water or something close to that!
