Probably cpr mortality. They say about 20-40% (depending on who you ask) of all eyes that are released die

The warmer water might also not help the releasing of fish.

Didn't notice any all day saturday when i was out there. What size walleyes were they? We fished the south shore most of the morning and afternoon and only noticed one sheephead floating all day.

i noticed yesterday off the dock a bass (lrg-m) very shallow and listless. What struck me was the discoloration. very light/white above the latteral line on both sides.

Thanks Harvey.

The floaters were relatively small 12". We tried the North side from Sibley Park to the west, but it was a little to windy. Moved across to the south out of the wind and the boat traffic was non-stop. That's what I get for weekend fishing though I guess. We were hoping to hook into some bass.

Sounds like these were released fish that did make it. Fish caught in deeper water die in this warm water, easier.

There was a walleye league out there the thursday before they saw the dead fish.

I don't want to jump on the league, about their fishing. I watched to so called weight-in of a league on Maple lake. Guys had died fish and then nobody wanted to bring them home. They were going to dump the fish inthe garabage but, someone watching this B.S. system said "Maybe the DNR should be aware of this groups tactics".

I would hope a walleye league would have some way of getting (Died or dieing) fish to Someone that can use them? IE. the Let's go fishing group?

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.
