Length of fish is typically a good indicator but not a definite. Typically, anything over 21" is a female.

Only way that I'm able to tell for sure is to clean them. wink Like TO said length is an OK indicator. But I'm seen some massive males. A friend on mine [PoorWordUsage] a 27" walleye on Big Stone one opening weekend. He was holding it up for a picture saying it was nice to catch a big female amonst all the smaller males we were catching in the 44 degree water. It didn't take long to figure out that he was not holding a female walleye. We still laugh about the one. laugh

Back in my younger days, I was working in a grocery store. An old lady comes up and asks me where she could find a can of fish balls. I had only been there a week, so I found another employee and asked him where I could find fish balls. He cracks up and walks away telling me to check between their fins. jerk-bait. Sorry, had to share.

according to the DNR while milking them said that the only way is during the spanwn and if eggs come out the belly female and if it is "milking" then it is male......the length thing is not very accurate as I saw alot of males that were up to 28" if not bigger.........

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
