Walleye Season Closed but....

Recommended Posts

Hey pupster, Welcome to the forums!!

Obviously there is not a whole lot you can do to prevent catching a fish accidentally that is out of season. As long as you are not targeting walleyes it is not illegal to catch them. However you must immediately release the fish. If a game warden were to see you catch a walleye it is kind up to his own judgement to determine if you were targeting them specifically, then they could take action from there. As long as you get the fish back swimming in as little time as possible that is about the most you can do. Good fishin, LaVoi

Pupster,
There is nothing wrong with accidently catching a fish that is out of season, that is as long as you release it immediately. Also, for example, you cannot fish for bass that are out of season and say you are fishing for crappies which is in season. It's a fine line sometimes, and if the CO thinks you are fishing for bass even if you are casting a 2" tube tipped with waxworms he could give you a hefty fine. It's really just common sense and best judgment. If you catch a nice fish that is out of season, just admire your catch, enjoy the fight and let the fish go on it's way. Good luck and Tight lines!

I am also for the hawkeye state. It is good to see another person for the best state on this forum. I have been here for 4 years and the fishing is pretty good. I would find a fishing buddy that knows the area and all the good fishing spots. This will save you a lot of trail and error. Good luck Go Hawks!

What happens when you catch a walleye accidentally while fishing for other species of fish. I'm from Iowa, and the areas I fish I almost always inadvertently catch walleyes while fishing for bass. Just curious I'm sure people still catch walleyes accidentally.

Although I'm fom the "Hawkeye" state I'm still a Cyclone fan! Anyway thanks for the replies I was really curious. I'm glad our season on walleyes doesn't close (except on a few of our natural lakes that I don't fish), because I just caught my biggest walleye ever! 30" 10.2lbs.

P.S. No sense asking I'll never tell.
Thanks again! Pupster

I grew up in Iowa and went to Iowa State but as you can see by my user name I stuck with the better if the two athletic programs.

The year round seasons are nice. Some fellow Iowegians and I had to make a trip down to Clear Lake two weeks ago just so we could fish and try out the new boat.

Where did you catch a 10.2 pound walleye at Pupster?

PS. There is absolutely no way that the clones will win at Kinneck again. Sorry, this is not the place to start that conversation. GO HAWKS

Herkey,
You should have read the P.S. about my 10.2 it's a fairly popular spot but no one is fishing it! If the word gets out I'll be done.

I wasn't looking for the exact spot. I was just interested in the body of water, but If that is more than you want to divulge that's fine. I was just curious.

Herkey,
How was Clear Lake? We were going to go up there tomorrow but looks like rain all day. We were up there a week ago fighting the wind but we did catch 5 keepers nothing big and several yellow bass.

Clear Lake was very slow. we only caught one white bass. I did had an above average size walleye with in 5 feet of the boat when my snell borke. I was surprised at how busy the lake was. we fished by the island and another point on the south side and each spot had 5 to 7 boats on it.

Herkey,
About where I caught that 10.2. If I tell you the body of water believe me everyone knows the exact spot. I think no one is fishing because of the up and down weather, plus the wind hasn't let up for about 2 weeks. Sorry. There's just something about hammering fish and having them all to yourself. I guess I'm selfish

I understand. I would do the same thing.

Have you ever fished Brushy Creek? I read a few posts on another web site about it that sounded interesting.

Yes, I've spent quite a few hours on Brushy. The walleyes are a bit finicky but I've found slip bobbers w/minnows have produced the most walleyes for me. The fish are really nice for no older than the lake is..20-24" are common. The bass (smallmouth and laregemouth) fishing can also be good. What other site did you read about Brushy on?

I read about it on www.iowaoutdoors.org.

That pretty good for a lake that is only a few years old. Next time I'm in the area I will have to check it out.

    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
