My Vote for Fresh water would be Steelhead. Smile With sun fish/red eared perch coming in sec.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who don't possess
it.

Hey there howtobass, I was stationed on Shaw for over 3 years and have caught those very same carp out of that lake. LOL, small world. The best place I found for them is on the back side where the gazeebo is. I caught all of mine off of dough balls using a bobber and a small snell hook, like a size 4 or so. They are a heck of a fight.

Do you ever go to Wateree? You know, Wateree has a Military Only section that you can rent cabins, camp sites, and you have your own private boat landing. Also, the rec building off perimeter road on base rents boats as well as campers and things along those lines. It's really cheap. Cool

Cool nothing fights harder than a gar, especially if your are fishing with 6# test for crappie or bluegill. I don't like them because of all the teeth but they will pull your line everywhere, and shake rattle and roll!! ha

Go with me on this one Steve. After over 80 posts, not a single person mentioned a stingray. I know it's not a traditional game fish, but from 2 to 200 pounds, they are all balls. Cool

Thank you all for the help on this. It was a test post for the intrigue behind the question "what is the pound for pound toughest fish" for an article for the Mail Tribune, In southern Oregon by Mark Freedman.

The article turned out awesome and he was kind enough to mention the site in his article, check it out at: http://www.mailtribune.com/...madness-freecolm.htm

Everyone who replied please send a PM to gabys with your address and shirt size, we are sending out BFT Stickers to all and will randomly select a few t-shirt winners!

THANKS AGAIN!!!

Stingrays are a good option. Out here we also have Bat Rays. We call them Mud Marlin because they are as sporty as a Marlin. Only thing is that they feed in the "Mud".

I'm sure that you are aware that a 200lb spiney tail flat fish like the Sting Ray and the Mud Marlin will pull like a 200lb fish, that is lightning fast and angrier than a bull, slimier than goat snot will only pull with its "Balls to the Wall".Cool

rock fish--they're hard to break loose from rocky bottoms,poisonous to touch, and you can't get rid of them fast enough.

I just used loaf bread. I'd get a bag of bread, rip off a small piece, and ball it up really tight. Stick it on the hook and off you go. Even buscuit dough would work. I know they like canned corn too. Thread a bunch of corn kernels on your hook and hold on. All carp like corn.

What's your career field? I was a 3PO51, S.F> Good times. My last duty station was Anderson AFB on Guam. Great duty station, unless you get stuck in the 613th.

Pound for pound the toughest fish . Kiss my smallmouth Bass .
I was fishing for pike, with a what I thought a small dare devil about 4" long and a smallmouth the size of 11/2" took the bait. More than twice it's size and 5* it's weight .
