I believe that Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world,
they have BIG fish there.
Thanks to the astute ichthyologist Clif Flynt for pointing out: "The
Carp picture is definitely not a carp - The fact that it's attacking a bass
plug makes me think that it's supposed to be a smallmouth bass, though the
body shape looks a bit more like a trout."
Not content to let us all wallow in ignorance Clif later sent me: "I
did a quick websearch, and Bronzeback.com has a gallery of photos
(catch, photographs, release) of smallmouth bass. This is definitely a bass,
not a trout, and definitely not a carp. The carp has a sucker type mouth,
and is a bottom feeder, while the bass has a front-opening cavern, and feeds
from the surface (sometimes) and mostly on other things (smaller bass) swimming
in the water. Aren't you glad you didn't ask?"
