Default Walleye....

The Walleyes Forever organization has had there incubation set up on the big lake of the chain I'm on... As of a week ago tomorrow they have had 30 nets on the lake.. Harvested about 6 liters of eggs, about 300,000 eggs per liter.. They said the bulk of the females were green yet, at that time..

They netted several fish as much as 8 years old, still producing, and as much as 30" long..

The last couple years they had very few (don't know what that kind of number would be) eggs that made fingerlings to grow in there floating grow box to release..

Hope they do better this year..
Always fresh.

Population mathematics is a fascinating area of study. When populations vary from yr to yr," reasons" are usually sought, but more often than not it's just a matter of certain parameters characteristic of the species that can cause changes from yr to yr. The 17-yr locust is an extreme example of a cycle programmed in, not depending on changes in anything in the environment.

Washington state just followed Oregon's lead and eliminated the size and bag limit on Walleye, bass and channel catfish in the Columbia river.
Catch all you want, any size,
They are trying to reduce the number of those fish because they eat the salmon and steal-head trout smolt.
One boat came in weekend before last with over 50 pounds of bass and walleye.
Went fishing on Friday but there was a storm front moving in and the fish were not biting.
Then the wind started blowing hard and I had to get off the river quickly.
