Regardless of whether you like them or not, that is one toad Walleye.
Why is he in a grocery store?
Likely to have access to a certified scale........
or maybe it was so big it had to be butchered.
What a pig.
Ive always heard walleye are delicious. Id love to find out.
One of my fondest travel memories is of a Walleye fish and chips from a red lobster in WI. I could have died happy that evening.
You heard correct. Tough to find a better fish battered and fried.
Was it caught under an indicator? That would be a brute to tackle on a 5wt. Now was it caught on the Columbia?
That's far to big to be prime dinner faire. The only real value is as a wall mount/ego stroker. If you want to eat one keep one within a few inches of the legal size.
Walleye are delicious!
Seems to be a bit of confusion. Apparently that picture first appeared on a North Dakota website.
What makes you say that? I thought it first posted to Northwest Sporstman magazine. The fish(and the grocery store he is in) is from tri-cities
I've now seen it posted as being from both Washington and ND.
I originally heard it was caught in the Columbia.
I'm not sure where it was caught now. Regardless it is still a toad walleye.
The fella listed lives in Pasco, so it sounds like it may be new WA record.
Caught in McNary pool
I got the word this afternoon that it has been officially certified as a new WA state record!
i'm sure this has made the rounds here before, but it's my favorite commercial ever and since the topic is eating walleye...
Always neat to see a record, but in my mind, it would have been a better personal memory.
Sounds like fun...
