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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
