With the current slot, (It will be expanding very soon)it's like finding a needle in the haystack. If you're catching big eyes move to another location. They are out there but you have to be willing to leave big fish in search of smaller ones.

It's going to be tough to find them for potentially a couple years. ML had a 06 year class that was off the charts that was gobbled up by big fish. Now that year class is just average or slightly less as 1 year olds. Lots of cannibalism in walleye, young walleye ended up being a big part of the adult walleye diet.

Nothing to get discouraged over. That's nature, boom and bust. Get a nice year class for 08 and maybe open up the harvest a little on some of those larger fish and things will be okay IMO.

Tough to have your cake and eat it too but IMO the last couple years I've been able to do both at ML. It won't keep me away from the lake...

You will more than likely have the most success targeting eating-size fish on the rocks.

That is a great looking stringer of fish. Makes my mouth water. The thing is though if you apply the 14-16" rule we have now it would look quite different. One long stringer with a cigar hanging on it. Barely enough for a cat to dine on.

      Only thing I can add is was told the same thing (ACL) on my British lab.  She was hobbling about and surgery was the only option and would be 2-4 thousand.  I live in Grand Forks so the price is pretty standard.  I spoke to a friend who had a springer and was told the same and he rested her for a month.  We opted not to pursue surgery and kept her from running and jumping off the dock for a month and now you wouldn't know anything was wrong.  Had spoken to a few friends who have done the same and the dogs are all none the worse for the wear.  Just an option and I would have paid if it was life or death because I do like my dog
