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.

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
