Huge Walleye in Outdoor News

48 posts in this topic

Was I the only one that was surprised to see a 37" eye come from Mille Lacs? Was it a misprint? If not there is the state record as soon as the gal puts on the feed bag. I am not calling that gal who caught the fish a liar, I have never heard of one that large come out of ML or even anywhere? Anyone have the story.

That would be over 22 pounds and close to world record of 25 pounds

Haven't seen a pic, but I googled it and found on another site it says 37" 12lb fish. I'm guessing that is a 27" fish.

I heard this too. Apparently I have seen no picture so far except reading claims by several people who have seened this fish. It was said the fish was skinny and didnt look the length of 37".

Well anything can be until someone valid actually unveils the real story. Until then its just a story.

I guess it's a double misprint then, because a 27" fish isn't going to be 12lbs whistle .......but neither is a 37 grin

Outdoor News?

Did Gary Clancy measure it?? grin

I don't have a pic handy but the fish did look very nice. I'm guessing it was a typo. A fish that large anywhere in MN would have raised a big media circus, even if it didn't have the weight to be a state record.

And I was thinking why was it in the middle of the paper? If it was 37 in wouldn't it be on the front.

Anyone see that article by Dennis Anderson in the Strib about faulty DNR rulers? They later found out that their ruler was off on length and was likely altered by someone. But then their problem was opposite, they thought they had 17" walleyes and really they were 18"s. Anyway agreed, there is something fishy about a 12 lb 37" walleye.

Well I had the pleasure of seeing a 11.2 29"er last year that I could never imagine being any more fatter than it already was.

I just looked at the picture and the body really does not look very big. I think we have a typo and a little fudging on the weight. smile

I have to say there is no way a walleye of 37" could only be 12 lbs i have one on my wall that is 31" and it only was 12.6 lbs so if this is true i would have to say that fish would be in the 18-25 lbs class and with all the eye's i have seen the biggest being a 33" 14.9 lbs i have to say no way this has any merit.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
