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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
    • monstermoose78
      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.
    • going4it
      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
