    That is what we did in the late 80's mark a school -cut the engine and toss out an erie derie tipped with a worm-reeling those 7 and 8lb walleye on a 7
    ft spinning rod with 10lb test was really a lot of fun

I have been told that 2018 supposed to be even better, I can't imagine, but bring it on.
    I have ate a lot of 6 lb+ Erie walleyes and they are deeeee-lish.

    will agree on this...reason why I like the smaller ones is I do not zipper out the bones just cut around the rib bones and leave the fillet intact, if frying them you wont notice them but a bigger fish you will. otherwise its all the same to me.

    I used to want to release the "big girls" but opening up my PB 30" found out it was a male anyways. actually all the big walleye I have caught were all males still have not caught a female. The fish in my avatar was a male as well.
