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.

      I might be able to make a run or two if needed with my truck.  Hopefully we don't get dumped on and get a few warm sunny days to get this stuff to settle a bit.

      I agree. Was thinking about doing this. My issue is that it's customer service. What if it wasn't that easy of a fix and customer service was this way. Haven't had these issues with shimano or pflueger for half the price.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!
