I was walking the dog last night and saw a kid catch a walleye near the dam. I would say it was about 22-23". I said "Nice Fish" and he went down to the shore and lifted his stringer, the one he just caught was the small walleye. This was on Fountain, lots of boats and shore fisherman, so the word must be out. He said he was using floating jig and a leech.

Try below the dam. It is often very good when water is flowing. Use a Mr Twister. Or even better try a floating jig head with a big shinner minnow add a sinker about 10'' up. Let it drift with the current.

The 22"er was the small one? I thought the new state law was 1 walleye over 20" per person?

Any stringer like that should be turned in, if the lengths of the fish are legitimate.

No wonder its so hard to find a true trophy walleye in alot of the southern mn potholes...some people have no sense of ethics

I think the Game warden should do a little more investigating, anyway we really should have a slot on them, i wonder if they were caught on the lakeside or down in the channel area, i also can tell that most of the parents ive seen don't know much about the regulations and sportsman like conduct! ill put money on it that some people down there are keeping more than one over 20"

The guy I saw was on the lake side. There have been a lot of people fishing there. I did see the game warden at the boat landing so maybe he is watching. You are right about the 20" and over fish, most people either don't know the law or don't care.

thats nothing i seen a few take home little itty bitty walleyes that were only 10" home frown.gif that ticked me off too, so far i have taken home a few walleye in the 15" to 18" range to eat 3 here and there, if i didnt catch them i would starve to death. considering low cash in the pocket.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
