You will find Steve that trolling only one bag gets to be a pain. Your boat will be trying to turn in circles all day.
Use two smaller bags.....one off each side.

Thanks  Scott
this is great information. It is always a touchy subject on forums when someone wants to keep a larger fish and points out the regulations are put in place for a reason. Whereas that maybe true eventually keeping too many of the prime brood stock  will reflect on the fishery. For years it was thought that the most productive spawners with the highest yeild was the first 2 years of sexuall maturity. Now biologist know that older the fish the higher the yeild. This defeats the purpose of slots in the 16 to 21 inch range.

The question is, what size is the threshold of conservation. Some anglers just want a guideline or recommondation. Is 24, 26, inches? Personally 22 inches is my limit but my preference is 18 to 20 inches.

How big does everyone else keep them?

Great information Scott and kudos on encouraging the release of the trophies. It must be tough in your position to find that balance between happy customers and the sustainability of our fishery.

Nice to see a lot of familiar names here.  My main passion is thumping kings off bluffers and wondering the hard surface of lady Simcoe.  But after my Quinte trip yesterday this area is definitely interesting.  Looking forward to chatting with the walleye pros here

On charters I often get asked how old the big walleye are. Below is an image showing how old they really are. This chart came from the Glenora fisheries and their Quinte walleye tagging program. You can see these big walleye can be 20 years or older.




I have also heard that "a 10lb walleye is long past its prime spawning". This is categorily false. There are several studies that show not only do the big mature females have significantly more eggs then the smaller females, but their fry are larger and have a lower mortality rate. Combine this with the good genetics and the importance of handling releasing these big walleye even more important. Yes, as a charter operator I do have clients that choose to harvest fish, but I try to encouraging keeping the smaller younger fish and allowing the large mature fish to keep our fishery as one of the best in North America.

They are trolling bags now just because they stand up better then socks.  I use the Amish outfitter ones, but I have used socks and they work fine just wear out faster.
