It should have been on the news last night I would think; didn't see anything.

You could ask the same question in the Willmar-Spicer Forum...

This would be great for the angler. I checked with news stations, papers, etc and cannot come up with anything yet.

Who knows, maybe he is keeping it a secret.

Many times these rumors are exactly that. It would be nice to see but it would take a huge eye to break the record.

I do believe that there is a record eye swimming in the Minnesota river for sure.

Posted in the St. Cloud Times today (sports section).......It was a lie made up by some kid who thought that it would be funny to spread a rumor that his uncle caught a state record walleye out of Diamond Lake. It was not 17lb. something, it wasn't even 5lb. something, it was a made up story to get a laugh out of you people and it obviously worked. cry

I don't know if everyone is gullible or most just don't want to call someone a liar without proof.

It's the wrong time of year for that to happen. Can you imagine a post spawn 17.9lb Walleye? In April she would have been over 20! To the people that started this joke, shame on you.

Diamond doesn't have the forage base? I personally boated a 24" and a 26" eye that were 2 of the fattest walleyes I have ever seen. It could happen, it's not completly out of the question, but it is very unlikely.

Like Harvey Lee said, not everyone is gullible, no one wanted to jump on someone asking an honest question.

And the last time I was on Diamond, 2 weeks ago, there was very little fishing pressure, alot of people skiing, tubing, ect. But people acctually walleye fishing were hard to come by. Winter it gets busy, but alot of people are targeting crappies....

15+ years ago you would have to be pretty gullible to think a 13 inch Crappie would ever come out of Upper Red Lake. You would have been extremely gullible to think people would flock to the Lake and haul away limits of 11 to 13 inch Crappies.

Stranger things have happened. If the Diamond Lake has Walleye and is not prone to freeze out it is possible even though the odds may against it.

The way I read the replies people were fact finding, searching for news stories and waiting to see if the story was true or a hoax.

Strange things happen in the world of fishing, so you just never know. Most people on here need a little more than word of mouth (or message) Pictures are good, but aren't always what they appear either. L2f

Hey, it's true!

My ex-wifes hairdressers uncle heard it straight from a guy in a blue Lund at the bait shop in Cook who saw the actual rapala which caught the fish in Cabelas before the guy bought it the night before opener.

It kinda reminds me of the 16 Lb. eye caught outta Mille Lacs last year. Anyone hear of this one? For a bit all the resorts were talking about it but I never met anyone who'd actually seen it or a pic.

And I bet he also has a missing 20" box fan with stickers on it.

Some people might think it was impossible, if you know Red you know the crappies have always been there.

State record? Not impossible i guess. But the state record was 17 lbs 8 oz and was 35.8" A big enough forage base for healthy 24" and 26" walleyes is a far cry from whats needed for 36" walleyes.

And pre-spawn.

Maybe Red was a bad analogy.

My intent was to make the point that those who posted early, waited and researched the "new record" should not be labeled Gullible.

I agree with Harvey Lee that it is not good to call someone a liar without proof. This is called being considerate not gullible. In fact I still would not call the poster a liar or gullible, he simply asked a question.

Reread the post, after the story is proven false the experts speak ?

I'm not sure you could even catch a fiberglass replica of a state record walleye in Diamond Lake!

      Fished solo Sunday and Monday afternoon.  Began by targeting smallies, but couldn’t buy a fish which was odd because the conditions were juicy - calm, cool, cloudy, drizzly.   Frustrating to say the least!    Figured if I was gonna get skunked, then it might as well be swinging for the fence.  Switched to Muskies at 7:30 and got lucky as heck, putting three in the boat over the next two hours, including a porker 48”er.  Felt very content the rest of the evening.    Got back out on the water Monday afternoon under post-frontal high skies and was fortunate to trick this lonely blonde an hour into the day.  Missed another a short time later and had some follows before pulling the plug to head home.  Didn’t want to leave that’s for sure!  All East end fish caught casting btw and all released unharmed.   Water temp was 71.

      I recently found an interesting thomas king essay topic on this site. God, I'm so glad that now I shouldn't waste time surfing the web. By the way, the rest of the topics from the list were also very interesting.

      The main keywords of this essay “can virtue be taught essay”. Plato presents Socrates’ views on the question of virtue and knowledge. It can be taught in many dialogues, including Meno. Socrates offers many arguments regarding virtue in this dialogue. These arguments cover how virtue is defined, and whether people can attain it. He discusses how virtue can be achieved, including whether one is born virtuous and whether it can be taught. This essay will address the question of whether virtue is possible to teach. Plato answered that virtue can't be taught. This essay will argue that Plato could have asked the questions differently and given him a different response. Particularly, I argue that Plato could have asked whether virtue can be learned rather than asking whether virtue is taught.   Meno asks Socrates whether virtue is possible to teach. The argument is then shifted to another question: what is knowledge? Meno then proposed an interesting paradox. One cannot find anything new. Either one already knows the answer, in which case it is unnecessary to search for it, or one doesn't know it and can't recognize it once it is found (Plato 1997: 80d-e. To put it another way, if one doesn't know what virtue (arete) is, he cannot search for it. Because he will not be able to recognize it when he finds it. Socrates proposes a solution to this problem, which is based upon the Pythagorean view on the immortal soul. The idea that the soul can reincarnate and be destroyed after death of the body is an example of this. It is clear that one cannot acquire new knowledge, but it is also obvious that we are constantly learning new things. Therefore, learning must be a matter recollection of past lives experiences and knowledge. Also, remembering is more important than teaching.   He demonstrated the Meno with a young boy from slavery who didn't seem to have any geometry knowledge. He was able to prove that the boy knew certain mathematical theorems by asking him questions.   Meno again asks his original question. He wants to know if virtue can be taught or if one is born with virtue. Socrates agrees to continue, but says they need to find common ground because neither one of them can define virtue at this moment. Meno agrees that virtue cannot be taught if it is not knowledge. If it is knowledge, it can be taught. Meno points out that it is only possible to teach something if you know what it is. It is unlikely that someone who doesn't know how to drive a car can teach another. Meno and Socrates agree that no one knows what "virtue" means and can therefore not be taught.   Socrates claims that virtue can be taught if we are able to learn from those who teach it (Plato 1997: 96c). Socrates asserts that there are teachers who can teach horsemanship, medicine, and other skills. These teachers are recognized by everyone as legitimate, but people disagree on whether they actually teach virtue. Thucydides was the father of two sons. Neither of them were considered to be virtuous. It is claimed that Thucydides taught his children many disciplines. However, it seems that he couldn't find a teacher who could teach virtue, even though he had teachers for other areas of life that he valued. Even though he was virtuous, he could not even teach it. Virtue is not a form knowledge. To make something knowledge, one must be able teach it to others. Socrates concluded that virtue cannot and should not be taught, and that there are no methods or means by which one can acquire virtue. Refer to: Virtue is simply "shown that it will come to us whenever it comes" (reference).   Plato might have received a different answer if he had asked the questions differently, according to my opinion. Plato could have asked whether virtue could learn, rather than asking whether virtue can ever be taught. To put it another way, asking if one can be taught something implies that the relationship between a student or teacher is involved. However, asking if something can be learnt means that the student (or someone with similar life experiences) is asking if a teacher has taught you geometry. To ask whether I learned geometry, it is to simply ask whether it was taught to me by a teacher or if I learned it myself from a book or some other source.   There are many ways to learn. To learn something one doesn't need a teacher. Learning can be done by studying virtue-filled people, even though they may not know it. A man might be learning virtue and his "teachers" could be virtuous even though they may not be living. Experience is another form of learning. Experience can be a great way to learn virtue. This would mean that the "teacher" is a combination of life experiences and reflective nature. Another form of learning exists. Even if he can't explain how he learned it or what he knows, a man can still learn. After someone has experienced a certain problem in their life, he may be able to detect that his relative is also experiencing the same issue. He can recognize it but cannot explain how. Another example is the musician or painter who has learned their craft and can perform well but cannot explain what it was.   The question of whether virtue can or cannot be taught is therefore a different and more narrow one than the question of whether virtue can actually be learned. Plato was right when he said that virtue can't be taught. It is likely that many people know of or have heard of people who can recite the "rules of virtue" but cannot put them into practice. This is a clear indication that virtue cannot be taught. As I mentioned, being virtuous is similar to being able to play a musical instrument, which is instinctual. It could be argued, for instance, that the ability to recognize when to help a friend, or when to give it to him, is something we instinctually know.   This means that, although virtue cannot be taught, it is possible to learn virtue. Plato suggested that virtue is inherent. This is true to a certain extent. Some people have an extraordinary capacity for virtues such as compassion, empathy, and the like. Since they were born. Others, however, seem to have a lack of moral consciousness. This seems to be a problem because virtue cannot exist without it. This does not mean that virtue cannot be learned, but that the foundation is inborn.   The same way we understand that it is possible to preach virtue but not practice it, so too can the reverse. People can improve their understanding of virtue and may find that they are more virtuous through reflective practice. As they get older, their perceptions of what it means to act in a virtuous manner change. Plato might have received a more positive answer if he had asked different questions (e.g., if he had asked if virtue could be learned instead of if virtue could be taught).

      Red, the moose was near birch island. As far as the lead bite goes....I had heard it was lights out a week ago. No doubt from what I've seen that before 9am you can get into a good bite. For me it's been poor after that. I'd be real curious if others are finding that as well. I have tried deeper areas as well and they weren't good after 9am for me either.

      Good thing DNR is going mostly bucks only in the north....   Apparently all those deer I see along the road aren't enough

      That is great to see! Between Birch Point or Birch Island and Pine? Great to see wherever! Last one I saw was in Quetico umpteen years ago.   I’ve been wondering about lead core. I’m starting to find fish with lindy rigs (although I’ve started to use tungsten worm sinkers) or spinners with crawlers in 18-20’ near steep rocky shore.    Your wildlife shot reminded me of one I took about a month ago along 77. Thought I’d share it. not as cool as a moose, though!
