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.

Fish'n Canada

The Fish’n Canada Show first aired in 1986 with phenomenal success. In 1988 the program went coast to coast on CBC, the first North American weekly fishing show to broadcast on a national network. In 1992 the show went into syndication adding Global Television Network, prominent CTV and affiliates, and several cable networks. The move resulted in unprecedented fishing audiences. With the addition of WFN U.S. and The Sportsman Chanel Canada today the Fish’n Canada show dominates the airwaves with a national weekly reach of 3.5 million and ama of over 450,000 easily making it one of the most-watched “outdoors” programs in North America.
