    Redbreast, didn't see it on your poll, but I reckon it kinda falls in with the bream catagory. Nothing like pulling one of those slabs in on the end of a breambuster.

    Don't know if they are the hardest fighters, have not experianced some of those in your list. But you cant beat an afternoon of shad fishing with light tackle. Stripers should be right up there too, gotta be one of the biggest topwater thrills, a fish that can go anywhere from a couple of pounds on up to 40+ hitting a topwater plug!! Yehaw, and hold on.!! The best part is, at this time of the year you can catch both on the same stretch of river.

    Only freshwater fish that fights harder then a striper is a wiper or hybrid as some call them.

    Just an opinion.
