Where are the "dinks"?

5 posts in this topic

Starting last year, and more noticeable this year, I'm catching very few "dinks" and "cobs" --- those little 8-9-10-11 inch walleyes.

That kind of scares me....... where are the next 14-15-16 inchers coming from?

Has there been a recent lake survey? Are we missing some year classes?

There were some very good year classes for walleyes that resulted in the current fish in the 14-16 inch size. 2004 was a very poor year, remember how cold the summer was.

2005 and 06 were better but not as good as the years that are now producing the 14-16 inchers. Walleyes are going to be tough in a couple of years for a year or two. The DNR has this survey info and it might be found on the vermilion web site.

The latest survey report was published in the SCLV newsletter, if it isn't up on the DNR website. The newsletter is available on the web.
