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.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
