Hello Everyone, I was just reading through some of your post and i have seen that many people are catching lots of 24 inch walleyes... just in curiosity... are you keeping them... they are what keeps the lakes alive... now anything over 30 don't produce very good eggs... so just some info... i keep anything between 14-19 inches... anything smaller it goes back and anything larger it goes back... does anyone else do this... well i t=just thought i would through that out there becuz those 4-5 pounders are probably the best ones not to keep... they don't taste as good and when you take them you are removing alot more than jsut one fish(with all the eggs and all)
Hopefully everyone would learn this like some of us already have... wouldn't you want your children to be able to bring their kids out here and be able to catch lots of walleyes...
well i am out
Josh

What do your clients think when they catch a 20" eye and you tell them they have to throw it back because you don't keep any fish over 19"? I've also read differently about big fish (30"+) reproducing - they produce larger fry which are more likely to survive this critical stage - just something I read and seems to make sense, but I know there are a lot of different theories on this and it varies from lake to lake.
