Pound for pound in freshwater I'd have to say smallmouth bass.
But they don't make blazing runs, they dart around in the general vicinity, bust out some serious air from time to time and tend to dog...

Re: Musky's are a cruel beast.

Well, at least you got one.

Re: Fishing Wyoming (additional photos 7/23/14)

Re: Right tool for the job ?

This is all on the heavy side for...

Re: Some Pretty Good Trout Were Caught;

Yeah, seriously man.

That pretty much goes for everyone else on the forum.

Re: Heart Lake YNP report

Cool.
That's a big cuttie anywhere.

I packed my float tube into Heart Lake about 15 years ago.

Re: How realistic is a career as a fly fishing guide?
