World Record Walleye

14 posts in this topic

Below is a link that I came across of a 22lb 11oz World Record Walleye caught in 1982 in Greer's Ferry Lake, Arkansas.

What I can't find is the length of the fish.....

Anyone else know?

I read somewhere that the 25lb walleye caught somewhere in Tennessee, (which is recognized by some but has since been disputed) had a length of 42".

Still can't find the length on this 22lber

That's a really fascinating read! Cool story.

Ya know', it's not uncommon to see 13, 14, and even 15 lb. + eyes in the Red River of the North up by Selkirk.

I even heard, but can't verify, that right after we left there a few years back, someone boated a new Manitoba provincial record from the area we were fishing. The fish was said to weigh 20 lbs.!

I can't even imagine. smile

That record in TN was debunked and the current record is the 22 plus that came from Greers Ferry.The Greers Ferry fish was 35inches long and girth was 26 and a hlf.

My wife and I have been talking about retiring to Arkansas for a few years now. When the time comes. All I need is a bunch of good walleye fisherman moving in on my winter grounds. grin

I think I first saw that fish in an In-Fisherman magizine in the 80's. It was a fat and I mean pig.

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
