You know... I don't think I have ever seen anyone release a Walleye. I guess they just taste too good for their own good.
Never fished for walleye yet
The few times I've eaten them, they were really good. Thirty-two would feed an awful lot of people. They could have put some back. Mark
@Jay: I wonder what the walleye tournament guys do. Maybe one will chime in.@Dustin: You should, they are delicious.@Tubeman: To protect the innocent, I cropped out all the anglers from this picture. Looked like a large family outing so I think 32 will feed an awful lot of people.
As I was pulling my kayak out of the Spring River in AR late last season, I watched a couple of guys floating by and right in front of me they boated a Walleye about 5 to 6 pounds. They were clearly not fishing for Walleye, as both men seemed quite surprised, and announced "it's a Walleye!"Almost needless to say... it didn't return to the water. I think they were actually fishing for Smallmouths.I bet after a Walleye tournament they just have a big fish fry.
Catch and Fillet...Hell yeah!!!
