I second the Sunnies, I just think of them as freshwater permit. :Big Grin:
Sunfish are always there and usually willing to bite, over and over and over and over again. I don't fish freshwater much, mostly with the kids so sunnies are on my A list. If I'm up for more of a challenge and stranded in NH then the smallies get my vote, I love watching those things jump up to eye level when I'm in the yak or canoe.
Pickerel and Pike- ya gotta love the strikes but the slime and all those teeth I can do without.
