walleye numbers.

3 posts in this topic

I read something in an outdoor magazine( not sure I can say the name) the other day and I thought it was very interesting. I think It said that during the year there is about 14 million (I dont have the magazine so Im not 100% sure on this number but I think its right) harvestable walleyes in Minnesota lakes combined. Out of those 14 million, 3-4 million are actually harvested each year. I took this to mean that the walleye population has to be way over that 14 million number. Kind of makes a guy feel like a chump when theres so many fish and I catch so few grin

there were other numbers givin in the same artical like out of all the lakes in MN there are only so many that are considered walleye lakes. I just thought that it was cool to see those numbers.

Anybody else have any interesting numbers on this line of thinking?

I find it interesting looking at the numbers of walleyes netted and size that the DNR posts on their lakefinder site. The lake I fish all the time they did'nt catch any over 15inches and I catch a lot of 17-20 inch fish in that lake. It just shows how netting isnt a exact science. You never know whats lurking down there. One of the locals in our area caught a 19inch crappie off my father-inlaws dock this spring in a lake that you are lucky to catch a 10 inch. I thought they were drinking too much green coolaid until I saw it for myself. I wonder if the dnr only nets at a certain time of the year of if they do it all summer? Does anyone know.

Set times & locations always the same from year to year so they can use them as a barometer.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
