Gotta be the blue groper. My dad caught a 300lb one twice in the same week! (Thats austrailian fishing for ya <Yibbada yibada eh rex>. 4lb roach would be top quality though and maybe a double figure barbel in the same day!!!
I think I would like to play and catch a moggy, but to add to the excitement, I'd rather not know that they were in the water.
I have heard so many tales of epic battles lost to moggies on substantial tackle that I'd like to experience such a fight.
We made several trips to the fens years ago in search of Zander, but always managed to go whilst they were on vacation. LOL
So, a Zander would be nice too 
Slightly off topic, but...a Muskie!
For those who have never heard of them, here's one...
I may be mad but a 6lb+ EEL would be nice they fight well and my neighbour says they taste well. So I can keep both of us happy with one of those. Nearest I have been was a 4lb 12onz one and that b@*!% realy fought.....LOL....Haydn
Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints.
Polepot, if it is any help I fished the Barton Court stretch on Thursday with my son. Great day . Weather was kind.Cloudy & not too cold.It was my first visit, and after a quick chat with Bob,the baliff, we started fishing the stretch close to the fishing hut.Alloy stemmed sticks and mostly maggot as bait.Within half an hour my son had a brown trout of about a pound and a half. Within the hour having moved 50 metres he had caught another brown trout of 2 pounds and a Rainbow trout probably nearer 2 and a half pounds.I still had not had a bite. Eventually after a fair bit of walking I managed my first ever Grayling, about 6 ozs.At the end of the day I had caught a few Grayling,biggest 8ozs, & some nice Dace and Roach.
