For right now I'm gonna have to say largemouth. I've never fished for smallmouth but hope to have my boat ready next year so I can get to out on the lake and give it a shot.

Jeez, another asinine pole.  Unless you are working on a research project what do you hope to learn?  If you ARE working on a research project you have omitted many qualifiers.  For example, if I live in the South I would prefer to catch LM, because the are no SM.  In short, the responses to your poll will be meaningless unless you specify a geographic area.

My response was largemouth because smallmouth oppertunities are very limited here compared to largemouth.     Happy fishing.

There is just more LM waters convenient to me, but smallies are alot of fun.

Out of the two, LM simply because I've never been in an area that has smallies.  If peacock bass were on that list that'd be my number one hands down.  1 pound peacock fights like a three pound largemouth.

How about adding:

Spotted

Suwannee

Shoal

Peacock (although technically not in the sunfish family)

My vote went to Smallmouth, cause in my opinion they are more fun to catch than LM....too bad we don't have them here in sunny S. Florida!  We have PEACOCKS!

If I had more SM available to me in the lakes I fished I'd probably fish more for them.

I prefer Largemouth due to the variety of ways you can fish for them. I love slop fishing with frogs and skipping baits under docks and boats, neither of which will result in many SMB.

As far as catching and fighting, Smallmouth.

Hands down, my answer is smallies.  But like most everyone who has responded, I'd fish for them more if there were more places to fish them.

its asks "which do you like catching better?". geographic area has nothing to do with it. if youve never caught a smallmouth or never caught a largemouth then you shouldnt take part in the poll.

ill take a 4lb smallie over a 6lb largemouth any day

    I will be happy with whatever is on the end of my line if it is of decent size.  

    I voted for LM because we have no SM down here; and LM fishing is all I have ever known.

    I wouldn't mind going up north and catching a few SM instead of LM just to see what is like.

    But I think I will be more happy with LM.

I'm not sure which I like better because I've never seen a smallmouth in person.  I've never fished any waters that had smallmouth.  I wish they could live down here in texas...

Panfish.

Nothing like catching a 13/14+ " fish on UL gear with UL reels.

You got that right.  One of my favorite fish to go for is the good old bluegill and right now, Kentucky lake, which I live about 15 minutes from, seems to be growing some bulls.

I like catching smallmouth more than largemouth, but largemouth are more abundant, so I'd say its a toss up for me.
