Carp for sure, unless it's on my plate. The only thing a walleye is good for is eating smile

Yup.

"I think I might have one on... no, it must just be a stick. Oh, wait... it's a walleye."

man... are you guys serious? This is a bad joke gone wrong. Where did you all come from?

I can't even ponder how a carp would be important than a walleye.

Fought the first carp of the year a couple of nights ago fishing for walleye. I have to say, it was one heck of a fight. Roughly 8 lbs or so, about a ten minute battle, better than any walleye or northern I've fought.

I rarely fish for the table so I would have to say carp also... not much else pulls as hard

I haven't more experience than most, but carp do fight way more than walleye. So when fishing for fun or fight, gotta go with carp.

I agree on the carp's fighting strength. Just last week I hooked my first carp in about 15 years, and man did that thing pull! It only went maybe 4 pounds but it fought much harder than cats or suckers of the same size.

Each to their own - but you have to be kidding.

Walleye #1 is the lean cusine of freshwater fish for the table.

Carp is for making pet food.

Yep, each to their own, but I'll take a mess of sunnies before a walleye for tablefare any day of the week. Not even close.

I caught a 34lb 9oz Carp this past Friday, and I have to say that was the best fight I've ever had with a rod on open water. Took almost an hour to get it in and then 2 of us to get it out of the water. But a good fight is all they're good for.

I'll go with the #1 game fish in the world. Yes the Carp! Bass and Walleye just don't fight that hard.

Take a look at the carp gear.

A good fight and a good picture are all I care about when I fish freshwater.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
