Are there Hoosiers or others THAT DON'T target Bass, Catfish, Pike, Musky, Walleye, or some of the other trash fish Carp, Gar, Buffalo, Sucker etc.?


In other words you might target ONLY: True Sunfish(Lepomis) Bluegill, Redear,Green sunfish etc.; warmouth, flier, True Bass (Morone) White Bass & Yellow Bass, and possibly bullheads (Not White, Flathead, Channel or Blue cats), and lastly Crappie.

I catch what's at the end of my line or I hook what I cook: Need not reply.

There's nothing wrong with the other fish, I like to catch (only) the small species, and wonderd if anyone in (or around) Indiana did the same.

Since this is a Crappie board, I assume most here are targeting Crappie.

I normally target Crappie, since my wife likes to fish for them, but will go after Largemouth when fishing with friends. My wife and I also take a trip to Canada annually where we target Walleye and Smallmouth.

What are you looking for here, if you don't mind my asking?

YES, your correct, I would assume most here are targeting crappie, as would I, that's a no-brainer right?

What I'm looking for is: what I said, like anglers, that fish ONLY for panfish, like the ones I mentioned above, that dont fish for the bigger fish.

Does that help make it any clearer. I don't think you fit that.... right?

You are correct, I don't fit that. Although when the sunfish are on their beds in late May/early June, it's a blast to put the Grandkids on top of them.

It sounds like the Panfish forum is a perfect fit for you!

This is a panfish forum, if not the best one on the net. With a bream section to boot. THIS SITE IS AWESOME.

I hope to fish with like minded anglers(who just target crappie and other panfish.

This site has some, I can feel it.

tankcreekpanfisher,

Bream fishin is just about all I do. Don't care much for bassin anymore. Crappie, shellcrakers and redbreast are what I chase.

Get your facts straight, it was posted only on the immediate states sourrounding Indiana, not all. Why are you starting trouble. The post is sincere. Your the third person who has gotten defensive and one who hasn't. Why are you so offended,?

I agree Bass are great for dinner, I prefer the ones I get the biggest fillets from, less small bones, ya know?

I'm the "Mod" of this forum ... I'll decide whether or not people need to be edited, or are looking for/causing "trouble".

This is also an "open" forum ... where any member can express an opinion on the subject matter of a post (so long as they obey the site rules). You cannot dictate who does or does not make a remark/reply to your post. This is not an "exclusive", nor totally "inclusive" setup, for Crappie only anglers ... Crappie are the "main" interest, not the "only" interest, of most of our members.

Leave the "issue fixing" to the Moderators of the site. ... cp :cool:

I used to bass fish all the time but now I stick with my panfishing. I make and tie my own jigs for crappie and bream and maybe use crickets now and then for bream but jigs only for crappie. I enjoy the more laid back attitude of most crappie fishermen.

These guys fish for pretty much everything but are bluegill masters (and they're in Indiana):

I'm pretty much the same. Every fish is a gamefish to me, but crappie and gills will always be special.

I too, enjoy the more laid back attitude of most crappie fishermen, and particularly the bream fishermen.

I realy should have thought this post out and figured another way to put it.

Thx for replying, hope I get to share a bank with you sometime.

BTW., I like your username.

Glad that you mentioned ol Mick, Tony and crew.. knew them when they were the Mishiana Bank Anglers, b4 that when then they were individually, friends of CBA~ Chicago Bank Anglers, and friends of Micky Thill. They're all great guys and gals (wouldn't want to forget Libby). But, I'm not into the competitive side of panfishing ie: Matchfishing, I just fish for pleasure now. I am aware of most if not all of Matchfishings technique and am a member of many U.K. forums also. Most of the methods they use also attract carp, which I don't like on the end of my line.
