Biggest / Heaviest Walleye out of Winnie


Recommended Posts

Ok all you guys and gals what is the longest and heaviest walleye that has been caught on Winnie. I hear the rumors every year of people seeing these hogs when they get striped at the dam. I personally have never seen anything longer than 28". If you have pics lets see!

Don't have any pics to share but my college roomate caught a 29" out of there a few years back.

I saw a kid last summer casting a big bucktail for muskies over the weeds and he caught at first what i thought was about a 10 lb northern. I then realized it was a HUGE eye. I would have guessed that thing was pushing 30".

I have a picture of Sharon's 31 1/2", 11 1/4lb Walleye that we have on our wall. Sharon caught the Walleye June 15th 1982 off Moses bar with a rig and Leech.Where can I send the picture?

Is it on your website? Just trying to gear myself up for a family weekend over the 4th. Probably lots of time with family and little time fishing.

Seven years ago on Memorial Weekend, Jim the Findlander and myself caught 6 eyes from 28" - 31" in 18' of water right in front of the dishes. Everyone was fishing 10' and having great luck with eaters 15" - 17". There was one boat that anchored and while drifting we were forced to go deeper. As we did my graft went bonkers displaying many large fish.

I told Jim "when we start coming back to 10', long line it so if we catch any big eyes the hoard doesn't realize the depth or location". As we came up the drop we both smacked a couple of beauties. YES we let ALL of them go.

A guide I know slipped over and asked where I had caught them. My responce was "10 feet". He gave me a nod and a wink and said I'll talk to you later.

He had found the same eyes earlier before everyone showed up and let his clients catch a couple before moving shallower to fill the live well. He had his clients throw them back as well.

That was the most number of large eyes I've ever come across. I have no doubt we could have caught more but some boats were coming close trying to figure out what we were doing so we packed it in and went shallow to catch lunch.

Interested to here more about this 33"er? Were you with the DNR in their boat or was it by the dam on shore? Did the fish live cause with water temps the way they are if someone is taking measurements and such just wondering if the fish lived? No photos?
