My two larger ones were probably female and there were no eggs, so maybe some just did not purge 'em yet.

Hmmmm... I have the same experience with the ones I caught too. I released all the ones with the big belly, I caught one with the eggs coming out and let that one go too. I don't know but I think some of them are just late layers.

There's always some that are late...maybe it's that only the majority of the cows are done spawing.

Not all walleyes spawn at the same time,different parts of the river are at different temps so the spawn can go on for awhile.Also if conditions are not right,some females dont drop their eggs,they simply disolve in their system.

WE had a late spring this year!

I talked to a DNR fisheries guy last week. He said the spawn is about a week late in the southern half of the state and a week-and-a-half late in the northern half. The good news is this is an ideal spawning year according to him... gradual, slow warming without any significant changes, cold-fronts, storms, etc.
