Walleye Photos

24 posts in this topic

Here goes on some walleye photos for Boar for the 12 days of Christmas, feel free to add your own for him to enjoy.  I wlll start it out with a nice photo of a nice fish but not a monster.  I'm guessing about a 24 incher or a hair bigger.

30 years ago, opening day night.  30" and 30-1/2"  guess we kept em back then.  Slightly ashamed but I was 18 years old, great glasses and hat.  Skinny fish.

Nice little lake north of Duluth where I get a nice eye every time in the fall.

Same lake.  I put the big one back 31 inches and kept the other one.

I could only find the pic that I applied some graphic filters to for project I was working on - that's why it looks a little wonky. Caught at the cabin up on Fish Trap Lake. I'm getting to be a master at the "Hold-out" technique :) .  But it was a good-sized eye. I can only hope this thread results in some good Walleye recipes.IMG_20120928_212800.thumb.jpg.6e8dada98d

my favorite way to cook walleyes is to leave the skin on smear butter over the fillet. and seasonings of your choice. put in a grill. takes maybe 1/2 hour to get done depending on the size. I also add the minced onions. bout 5 minutes before done sprinkle lemon juice over the fillet. that skin can be cooked to a crisp and the meat is still oh so good.

Sometimes we let the dog fish during the dog days of Summer and it works.

I think that fish was the 29" in the photo with the guy in the orange.  We let it go and it wasn't belly up but was just sitting on the surface and that young dog jumped off the front of the boat and did his job.  We let it go again and it swam to the bottom.  I had a dog years ago grab them out of the livewell when we left it open but an open water retrieve was a new one.

I tried to post this and the above stuff from Boar appeared and I don't know why.  Although that is a great looking "Rattle Reel" in your fish house Boar.   ;)  Here is a pic of me by my house on the Rainy a couple of years ago.

The ol' sideways shot again. Sorry, Big Dave fixes these for me sometimes.

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
