Something fishy is going on here.

Ok, I have a challenge for you. Find two trophy fish recently posted on this forum. Now show me something that distinctivly seperates them.

What I'm saying is both fish are the same length, same weight and funny, same bloody sore near the tail.

When do I get to catch it wink.gif

dtro comes through with the eagle eyes!!

Jim W. & WWG caught the same fish. Unless, there is a contagious disease affecting 10lb walleyes in which a small red scar appears on the left side near the tail.

dtro- When you do catch it, hold the fish with the other side to the camera. No one will no the difference! wink.gif

Uh OH!

You caught me! I have had that walleye on a leash all fall! grin.gif

Seriously though. It is the same fish. Both fish were caught in the same area a few weeks apart.

I just pulled up the original photos and found a "wart" just above the anus and some more on the tail.

Incredible!!

Good eye,

That is a great example that Catch & Release really works. Especially for the bigguns. So I guess it's our turn to catch her now. If it wasn't for this work thing I'd be out chasing her right now.

Later

Maybe that's the only 10 pounder in the river. She's still there though. She spit out about a 6 or 7 inch channel cat the night I caught her. I don't think she's having any problem with her appetite. She'll be 11 or 12 the next time she's caught.

Lets see the two photos side by side once. I can't tell from the other one of Jim's.

Maybe this fish is the same one I caught last May at 9# ooo.gif

If you would have cut the date out of the bottom picture you might have been able to get away with saying you caught the fish to.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
