well it depends. do you like catching big or small fish. I personly like the bigger fish so i would say that salt water fishing is a whole lot of fun.
Like he said even a little saltwater fish is a big fish. when I was a youngster Capt. Mundus harpooned a Great White in Montauk Pt.. As I remember the girth was as large as a VW Bug.
I have never caught a muskie, our largest freshwater species, but generally speaking, salt water species do run much larger in size.
Depends on how seasick you get.
I enjoy seeking out trout holes, but also enjoy dropping in a line in the salt water.
thanks guys your awsome
Not only are saltwater fish usually bigger, they fight harder than freshwater. On the other hand, it sure is easier for me to get a pole and walk out on the pier in my little pond and catch a few bluegills.
I like both but tend to prefer saltwater. Especially because here in California you can pretty much fish off of any public pier for free and without a fishing lisence.
fishing is fun no matter what to me, it's all a different and exciting challenge...take for instance catching a muskie, one of the hardest fish species to get...and i know that there are certain saltwater species that are extremely challenging to find, so like i said all is fun, but i lean towards freshwater due to the lack of salt in the water in my area...
For me the biggest con of saltwater fishing is finding the saltwater, I live in Nebraska and the ocean is along ways away in any direction.
saltwater,bigger fish,more fight,and more kinds to eat here in tx on the coast.
There's nothing more fun and relaxing than walking a good trout stream.
I really enjoy both but would have to say that if I had to pick only one it would be salt water fishing. The fish are bigger, wider in variety and they hit a lure at 40 mph to give you a real thrill.
I think it would be hard to pick on over the other. If your into the fishing alone pick saltwater, but if your into the fish, the wildlife, and the scenery pick freshwater.
I live in an area where you have to flip a coin to see which you want to do on any given day. But if you really want an answer, fish tide water where it is both fresh and salt at the same time and I can catch bream and bass on one side of the boat and specks and reds on the other.
The most fun and challenge I think is Salt Water, better eats! and even a Small Tarpon will wear out most people.
I'm a freshwater guy for the most part, but I like the salt the more I think about it. You tend to get a great mixed bag of gamefish there, where that happens less often or at least with less variety than in the fresh water.
As far as challenge and good eatin' goes, it's hard to choose which. Both have their ups and downs.
