If you like fishing in freshwater, there are many attractive fish species include economic ones in the river, stream or lake. Some of them are:
1.Large mouth bass
2.Bluegill
3.Sunfish
4. Black Crappie
5.Rainbow trout
We could catch Large mouth bass with size of 4-10 pounds (2 – 5 kg) weight and from three or four inches length. This kind of fish could be found in a river and a lake. If we lucky enough, we could find schooling of Large mouth bass in the middle of lake. Large mouth bass is good for eating. Taste is depend on how we cook it. Overall, the taste is delicious.

The bluegill is also called as brim, bream, or copper nose with scientific name Lepomis macrochirus. In nature, the fish lives in streams, rivers or lakes. The size is around 3 pound (1.5 kg) weight, perfect size for barbecue. 
Sunfish is look like Bluegill, I think it is because they are the same genus that is Lepomis. Then, black crappie also has the shape similar to sunfish and bluegill. They are the same family of Centrarchidae (read with sound: sin-tr-ark-i-day).

Other common freshwater fish is rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) is cold water fish, usually found in the shallow river of northern part of America. We could fish rainbow trout around December or January each year. The size around 2 kg weight.

  4. You're speaking my language. I grew up in Maryland on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, and I probably started fishing shortly after I started walking. We caught all kinds of fish, but one of my favorites was the sunfish. Small, but oh-so tasty!

  10. Meski tampilan fisik ikan large mouth bass kayaknya galak banget ..., tapi ternyata jenis dagingnya enak disantap, ya 🤤

    Kalau di negara barat, ikan hasil tangkapan sering dimasak apa, mas ?.
    Dipepes atau dipresto jugakah ?
