Whimpiest Fish Poll
We did so well with the strongest fish pound for pound thread, now we are after the Wimpiest fish.

We want to know what is the Wimpiest fish that you have ever caught in fresh or saltwater. What fish was it that just lacked the ability to stretch your string, make your drag sing or cause your rod to go bendo??Cool

Walleye. More of a drag in than much fight.
I've latched hold of few lake trout that also felt much like "fighting" a tire off the bottom of the pond as well.

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:

I've caught them out of Utah Lake, Deer Creek and Yuba at different times of the year and they still seem to be one of the most slow, lethargic fish I've ever caught. The biggest Walleye I've ever caught was a monsterous female that I was sure was a snag until she drug on up to the boat. I'm sure she would have been 10lbs +. She was full of eggs so I let her go.
The fine taste of Walleye however makes up for thier lack of tussle on the end of the line.

Without a doubt, the whimpiest fish is the smaller walleyes. 12" to about 17". I did not catch a single fish that fought back at willard last year. If you catch them on a planer board you seldom know there is even a fish on there and drag them around for miles. I caught a 23"er last summer and it felt like a planter bow of about 8".Cool

Some of the whimpest fish I ever caught was yellow perch at Jordanelle in our latest perch party. Tubedude was a witness as to their rod bending ability. (They just barely bent the strike indicator) Managed to bring 23 of these bruisers to the hard deck.

I would also agree with some of the guys that the walleye, in general fights poorly. Just like LH2 said, I too have drug them around for hours without even knowing one was on. My largest was a 6 pounder that I thought was a carp until it was right beside the boat. WH2

Walleyes fight like hell compared to Strawberry Cutthroats of the same size. I would say Stawberry cutts give up quite easily.

Where the heck do you fish at Strawberry? Maybe you need a little lighter tackle instead of that old CB radio antenna you are usingLaughLaugh Just kidding ya.
But I think Strawberry Cuts and Bows fight fantastic...at least on a fly rod they do.

Theres no wimpy fish in NE. But the least fighting fish must be the perch. I've seen them take 3 ft of line on a tipup and stop. Lazy beyond believe. For lack of a fight it would be a stocked trout. I think they want to be boated.

FrownGrayling. Hands down.
Sometimes you can strip them in quickly, and not be certain you still have him hooked.
Then there's the Suckers. Yep, I got one on a nymph. No fight at all.Tongue

well theres one thing that i have seen thats common.....the same fish but diffrent areas = diffrent results..... if i would base this poll on a specific species only fishing in parks and cannals i'd say bass but lucky enough for me i have been out other than parks and i know that they fight HARD...... so of course some fish DO fight harder but its the enviroment around that really determine how hard they fight..... SO with that said i will say that ANY fish that are in a park type of setting fight less now of course this is an in general species BUT thats just something i've picked up on reading these threads

I don't know if this counts or not, but after you bring a perch more than 30 ft off the bottom their swim bladder expands and they will FLOAT themselves the rest of the way up to the top. I can't imagine less fight than that.

Re: [tubeN2] Whimpiest Fish Poll In reply to
caught this one in california didn't put up much of a fight. Just showed him a beer and he was hooked as soon as it hit the water. Looked in the california proclamation and it said it was a beer sucking skunk fish. I never heard of this kind of fish but I was born in Utah so I wasn't exposed to all the out of state knowledge.
