    I get lots of big pike and the occasional panfish. No pike under 15 inches normally. When they say rapalla jerkbaits are for all species they aren't lying. I once had a top water hit from a 3 foot dogfish, but it missed the lure.

      Warmouth bass (locally called goggle-eye) and bowfin or grinnel.

        If youre targeting bass here in south la by catches are kinda rare. I have caught sac-au-lait (crappie) and several choupique (bowfin) though. The most unusual the ive caught while fishing for bass was a chain pickerel. It was strange because I didnt think they lived this far south.

              Crappie, because my go to lure in the ponds I fish is an inline spinner (rooster tail).

                When fishing for striped bass I sometimes catch bluefish and I've also caught sand sharks. On the other hand when I'm trolling for salmon and trout we almost always catch bass.

                  It depends on what else is in the lake. In the north I typically catch northern pike and walleyes. In the south I typically catch striped bass or alligators.

                    In the New River (VA) I catch rock bass, bluegill, and even musky when smallmouth fishing.

                    In the creeks in MD, I have caught fall fish, rainbows, sunfish, bluegill, brook trout, chubs, and suckers when fishing for smallies and speckled bass.

                    In the MD ponds, I have caught bluegills, crappie, and even catfish when fishing for large mouths.

                    It all depends on the body of water, region of the country, time of year, etc. and how hungry the fish are that day.

                      In Florida I have gotten everything from tilapia to catfish and even a bowfin.
