Walleye anatomy

What is the white stuff in this walleye I caught last night? I always thought this stuff was sperm but they should be spawned out now.

I'm in Detroit now and was fishing around some of the pros casting yesterday. It will be a real mess if it catches on with people spot locked casting & people trying to drift in the same run.

It's just fun to catch a big one once in a while. I don't usually keep them bigger than 22" unless I haven't been fishing much and I get a 24".

I can't help with transducer mounting on your boat but the location is not critical on the river. The boat control thing is just about learning to counteract the wind with your trolling motor so your...

I graduated in 1970 and really haven't had much to do with anyone from there since. I went to my 20th and will probably go to my 51st this year. My 50th was cancelled last year.
