Walleye with tags or ??

3 posts in this topic

I caught a 22" walleye Sat night that had 2 objects sticking out of it near the dorsal fin. They looked sort of like porcupine quills. They were approx 2 inches apart only about 1/4 inch to the side of the dorsal fin. Are these DNR tags or ?? I never thought to take a picture-- has anyone else seen these?

Thanks in advance. C&E

Most likely a DNR tag. There should have been a number on one of them that you can send into the DNR to see the history of the fish. THe tag i have seen was yellow with black numbers

Was a tag I bet. The DNR website has a spot you can email them with the numbers and all the other info they request. Then they will send you information about the fish. Pretty interesting.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
