One Eyed Wonder! The weirdest Walleye!

18 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I thought that since this is a dead time to talk about walleyes on here, I thought I'd post a couple pics of this crazy walleye I caught back in Wisco this past weekend (I went back there this weekend to fish the Wolf River run with the old man and his buddy). The first pic below is a pic of the fish I caught - looks all normal right? Wrong! Look at the next two pics and you'll see how it was totally not a normal looking fish. Weird! Also, the last pic is of the three I caught and kept this past Tuesday on the Wolf River. You'll see in the first pic that this river is strikingly similar to the ol Reddy in Fargo! Man, it was fun hammerin eyes agian on the open water rods! One last thing, it was 81 degrees this past Sun and Monday when we were fishing. Awesome! (Tuesday it was 50 degrees. Cold!?! smile.gif)

Very nice fish. I have caught a couple sunfish and perch that had something similar. I figured it was from a run in with a bigger fish. You really make it tough to wait for the lakes to open around here with pictures like that.

Forum Policy reads:

"We're looking for fish pictures in good taste that encourage selective harvest principles so the dead fish rule is as follows: Fish pictures must be in the natural environment where the fish is caught that do not look frozen, stiff, bloodied or look like they were just poured out of a bucket, no alcohol beverage containers or cigarettes and no stringer or fish in a bucket pics. Fish Mount and live release tournament pictures are ok as well. All other dead fish pictures are not allowed.

OK??? I guess I still don't get it. The fish looks to still be alive and that it would swim away if placed back in the water, no beer cans or cigarettes.

I guess to be safe, I just won't post any fish pictures.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?
