Walleye Photos

Recommended Posts

Here goes on some walleye photos for Boar for the 12 days of Christmas, feel free to add your own for him to enjoy.  I wlll start it out with a nice photo of a nice fish but not a monster.  I'm guessing about a 24 incher or a hair bigger.

30 years ago, opening day night.  30" and 30-1/2"  guess we kept em back then.  Slightly ashamed but I was 18 years old, great glasses and hat.  Skinny fish.

Nice little lake north of Duluth where I get a nice eye every time in the fall.

Same lake.  I put the big one back 31 inches and kept the other one.

I could only find the pic that I applied some graphic filters to for project I was working on - that's why it looks a little wonky. Caught at the cabin up on Fish Trap Lake. I'm getting to be a master at the "Hold-out" technique :) .  But it was a good-sized eye. I can only hope this thread results in some good Walleye recipes.IMG_20120928_212800.thumb.jpg.6e8dada98d

my favorite way to cook walleyes is to leave the skin on smear butter over the fillet. and seasonings of your choice. put in a grill. takes maybe 1/2 hour to get done depending on the size. I also add the minced onions. bout 5 minutes before done sprinkle lemon juice over the fillet. that skin can be cooked to a crisp and the meat is still oh so good.

Sometimes we let the dog fish during the dog days of Summer and it works.

I think that fish was the 29" in the photo with the guy in the orange.  We let it go and it wasn't belly up but was just sitting on the surface and that young dog jumped off the front of the boat and did his job.  We let it go again and it swam to the bottom.  I had a dog years ago grab them out of the livewell when we left it open but an open water retrieve was a new one.

I tried to post this and the above stuff from Boar appeared and I don't know why.  Although that is a great looking "Rattle Reel" in your fish house Boar.   ;)  Here is a pic of me by my house on the Rainy a couple of years ago.

The ol' sideways shot again. Sorry, Big Dave fixes these for me sometimes.

    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
    • The cost of some new boats is outrageous.  I've always questioned the sanity of dropping $30,000, 40,000, 50,000 on a boat when there are so many solid used boats available for a small fraction.  The used boats may need a bit of work or maybe even a complete rebuild down the road but even then you'd still be ahead $20,000.  These older boats fish just fine as well only down side is it might take you an extra 5-10 minutes to get to your fishing spot.
    • To all us dead beat bas-ters that go hunting and fishing and sit on the computer all day! Oh and had sex a few times!   Keep up the good work guys!    Had to put it here because there is no General thread. Plus no wives will be looking in the Home Improvement thread for us!!!
    • I actually bought the electronic controller off E-b-a-y and it just came in the mail today. I will install it sometime soon.     Agreed.
    • Would you rather be signing for a $40-50,000 plus interest loan? I think you will see many more people going this route, I know I will. A more profitable business might be buying and reselling used boat for this purpose.  Bruledrifter, great job, and smart decision.
    • It’s the cost of doing it. There’s a lot of putzy, tedious grunt work involved that makes these projects take a lot longer than one would think. Just to replace a floor requires a complete strip down and rebuild.    I wish i would have kept track of my hours I put into this, but I think a safe guess would be at least 150 hours, plus materials.... I’d have to charge 3-5 grand, at least. I’m sure some would pay it, but not many.
