It appears that I will be fishing again soon since we are stinking it up on the football field right now. What type of freshwater fish should I be concentrating on in the middle of november? Where I'll be fishing there is catfish, crappie, panfish, bass, and pike.

Sounds good to me. I've never been striper fishing. May have to get with a buddy who owns a boat and make a trip up there.

Pike? You're kidding right. Here it will be walleye time and a good chance for some big trout. Crappie are on now but not in Nov. You should be able to catch a bass but it will take a little different approach. Slower, finesse style of fishing. Sometimes downsizing the baits will help.

Is there something wrong with pike? I mainly catch and release unless I'm fishing for crappie or catfish. They have a taste I like. I just want to drown my sorrows in the bottom of a lake. The wife usually gives me a 2 week grace to get football out of the system so I'm fishing as much as possible.

I'm confused with the pike. Could this be gar? When I think of pike they are a cold water fish like a northern, muskie, or walleye. Are you maybe talking like a jack fish? Sorry to hear of the not so good season. ***edit* Chain pickerel-Gotcha! Common name "jackfish". It is related to the pike family.***

No problem. The season is a bit of surprise. Knew we weren't gonna steam roll folks like years past but having a losing record is a surprise.
