FINAL RESULTS – November 3rd, 2020

We loved this poll question and on this one, we pretty much predicted the first-place finisher. Walleye have seemingly taken over as Canada’s most popular gamefish. It was not that long ago that trout in general, was the nation’s favourite fish to catch but as our results show, they have moved down the list. To us, the most surprising stat was how close Bass and Trout were. Specific Trout species lovers i.e. Steelheaders might say it is an unfair comparison in that we used both Largemouth and Smallmouth however we simply said Trout, meaning Rainbow, Brown, Brook, Lake, Bull, etc. With this said, it might be viewed as unfair in the reverse comparison; 5+ species vs. 2.

Pike at only 2% higher over Muskie is another one that kind of made us look twice. That one is likely due to the allure of the mighty Muskie as compared to the poor misunderstood “snakes, snot rockets, slew sharks” and so on.

Salmon being in the limited numbers and locations that they are in, didn’t surprise us.

  1. I would and do love to catch them all but as fight per pound, I would say Salmon and Smallmouth and out of the two, the simplest in terms of equipment and access to would have to be the crazy Smallmouth Bass.

    1. To take two grossly different species and be able to compare them in a pound for pound battle says a lot for both fish but especially that little brown one. Crazy is a perfect description!
