Which would you guys be more likely to release, a 30" walleye or a 1 lb sunfish. Second question,which is more commonly caught? P.S. On most lakes it will take about a 10 1/2 " + gill to make it near 1 lb. and probably longer than that w/o thick shoulders.

I have a 29.75 on the wall and wish it was 30" so it'd be a tough choice.

I have released a 30+" walleye. Look to your left. Hold your applause though, I just couldn't afford the price tag to mount one. I would release the big 'gill. Now if it were a 2lb. plus crappie...

For me I would release both, I just prefer to get my picture with them and then have it blown up to an 8x10 or bigger. Plus its a heck of a lot cheaper!!

For me I'd release the pound bluegill, as I already got mounts of some already, and I've already since then have released pound sunfish. As far as the walleye it'd have to be 10 lbs for me to mount it, and 30" would be really close to that. I really don't fish for them as much as I do for crappies and bluegills, so I'd keep the walleye for the wall. They make more...

I released a 32in walleye and got the dimensions last year.. I don't know if I would release a bluegill that big? I have caught some 10in ones but not a 10.5.

      The way it's coming down right now.... don't look good for area lakes in foreseeable future😉 we get another 8inches and it will be snowmobile only  for a while

      Try to keep in mind that the person you're talking to on the other end has nothing to go on but your description. It is not always that easy to explain things so another person who is only hearing the verbal or written explanation can fully comprehend what is being described. For example neither I or a colleague have been able to understand what this screw is you're talking about and we are both familiar with inline reels. Sometimes a  photo can speak volumes.   What I'm saying is maybe you're not being clear enough for them to understand the actual problem. Another tid-bit that may be helpful. Try to keep your composure and contain your frustration. It's most likely a failure to communicate that is causing the problem.

      A group of us recently made it up to Flag Island Resort for 3 days of multispecies ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. The accommodations and folks who worked at the Resort were top notch! Bending over backwards to put you on fish and make your trip one to remember.   The Fishing - Day 1 it was decided to stay, somewhat, close to the Resort in the MN side of LOTW to target Walleye, Sauger and Perch due to 24+ hours of snow. We got into pretty good numbers of fish and some quality fished showed up as well! Below is a video of that action from Day 1.

      Yup, I walk from the Landing so about 4.5/5 mile trek. It's not too bad when there are snowmobile tracks.   I appreciate the offer CigarGuy. I may take you up on it some day. As I cruise through my 40s, I'm enjoying the walk and what it does to help keep me in a semi-recognizable shape! My other family members don't enjoyed the shorter walk much better.

      I left up there this morning. I haven't seen the snow so packed down from snowmobiles all the way back towards your place. Should be able to have a fairly easy walk.....however, supposed to get some snow tomorrow and chances over the next few days. Do you walk out from the landing?  If I was in there when u come, I'd give you a lift/tow on my sled.
