Curious...do you ever weigh your fish on a reliable hand scale, or just measure lengths?

That middle pic looks like a xps lazer eye bait... Nice fish.
Mike, I posted a question about swivels above. Do you have a favorite you prefer?

Didn't use a scale. Just a quick picture and release.

Fishing topwater with a KVD 2.5 chartreuse sexy shad wake bait. I like size 4 - Spro ball bearing swivels.

WalleyeHunter24: "Small Mouth bass... the Carp of the BWCAW. "

I wish I'd caught more carp in my life, but they're hard to catch. I've only caught four and all three were thrilling. One hit a crank bait on the north shore of Lake Michigan. Another hit a tiny Rapala in the Whitefish River of the U.P. Still another hit a worm in the Wisconsin River. All three made muskies feel like milquetoast. The last one was a mirror carp that hit a minnow on the Mississippi River. The biggest was 20 pounds.

The Lindners are good carp fishers, but they're also good everything fishers.

A carp hit a crank bait and a rapala?? You snag it or was the lure just sitting on the bottom?

Not snagged. They were both lip-hooked. If you ever fish the Little Bay de Noc/Big Bay de Noc area on Lake Michigan's north shore, there's a peninsula that separates them and the tip of that peninsula is Peninsula Point. There's a lighthouse there and both my fishing partner and I lip hooked a carp on crank baits.

That came apart in a hurry! I've never caught a carp.
Molly is just trying to self-promote her status as a crankbait carp expert. ;/ Her last article was entitled "Crankbait Carpin' on a Budget" and appeared in the Spirit Airlines magazine.

Nice fish Mike.

LOL. Thank you lundojam for making me laugh this morning. I would read that article. In fact now I'm kind of upset it doesn't exist. Molly, got any time on your hands this week? :)

Nice fish QM -- glad you were able to find some nice fish down south in the BW this year.

Since you read the article, you might remember that I attached some trebles to an ear of corn and cast that.

Zwater, I fish, therefore I fib.

The simplest answer is that the small mouth is not native to the boundary waters just as the common carp is not native to North America.
