Baggin- I believe you are partially correct. Nature does indeed have a significant impact with recruitment annually. There are years when recruitment is high and those year classes of fish tend to carry us through subsequent weather induced poor recruitment years. And we are fortunate to have a river system that produces enough walleyes that supplemental stocking is not required.

You stated "angling harvest does not have a huge impact on the population of walleyes."

I disagree. Angling harvest absolutely impacts fish populations and is why we have fishing regulations. Why do you suppose that the slot limit was initially put in place? Overharvest of walleyes was indeed a factor.

Fish populations, even self sustaining ones such as Lake Wisconsin's walleyes that we enjoy, only stay that way because of regulations and need to be protected from overharvest. Fish populations can quickly diminish, and it takes years to get them back....if the appropriate regulations to protect them are both in place, and enforced with penalties strict enough to provide a deterrent.

lets get over the harvesting of the walleyes. angling harvest does not have a huge impact on the population of walleyes. mother nature has the most bearing in this system and it has always been that way. Just gets sooooo tiring hearing the harvest whining crap. Sorry about the rant and rave. Had to be done. Over and out....................

just so everyone is clear. walleye/sauger from the prairie du sac dam upstream, 5 total may be kept. you can keep them from exactly 15 inches to just below 20 inches. and 1 over 28 inches. so anything less than 15 or between exactly 20 to 28 inches may NOT be kept. there should be no confusion to start with, but i guess people dont read the regulations.

Wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of any shore fishing on Lake Wisconsin. Taking the kids camping at Smokey Hollow and was going to try and sneak over to the lake with the kids. Doesn't have to be a prime spot, just looking for somewhere for the kids to catch some fish, boat gets kind of crowded with two little guys casting. Thanks, JD

I NEVER KNEW THAT THERE WAS A TON OF STUPID SHEEPHEAD IN THE LAKE. ALSO WENT ON TUESDAY AND CAUGHT 24 BLUEGILLS AND 1 CRAPPIE. A GREAT BLUEGILL, PERCH AND WALLEYE LAKE. WISH THAT THE WALLEYES WERE A FEW INCHES BIGGER! GREAT WEEK TO BE ON THE WATER! Big Smile

Fished at okee bridge from 7a to 9a using crankbaits. Caught one 14.5" sauger in about 10 FOW. Perfect temp to be out after all the hot weather lately. Tight lines!

Took those ladies out last night and they just would not believe me that there are no fish up in the trees. I wanted to take a picture of how many Mayflies where in the boat after retrieving lures in the trees. I did say if they opened there mouth in the trees they would get a lot of protein. They were good sports and quiet. Me Too *($&##&#&#^#^#^#).
