I'm sorry, and I apologize if I'm wrong, but I don't believe that.
Hmmmmm - he must be thinkin' about those little green fish that the "Drill'em and Drag'em boys chase after.
Having fished both bodies of water a few times, Erie wins in my book when it comes to walleyes.
(but Bull Shoals is prettier.

To be fair I misunderstood and thought he meant 20 inch and above fish, when he meant 20 pound and above. Since the largest walleye taken out of Ohio, lake Erie is 16 pounds- that is a true statement. But I think Erie has to have it in the walleye count category but I have never fished Greers Ferry.

Since you have fished both bodies of water could you do some sort of comparison? Really interested in Greers Ferry for a change of pace. I'm never giving up going to Erie though, awesome lake.

Somehow I didn't see this thread continue till today. No place competes with Erie for Walleyes. There has not been very many 20# walleyes caught here in Arkansas. They do grow fast though average less than 3 years to get to 18" and become legal. I am guessing my average is around 21 to 22" on Bull. There have been 3 PWT tourneys here since the old FLW not ready for prime time players tourney. They did just fine. I was at an Erie tourney with PWT and they had 100's of 10# fish. Bull shoals has some but not plentiful. MY best eye was 32.5" post spawner at just over 10. I catch 28's and 29's a few times a year. I can't compare to Erie as far as Walleyes though. Bob

All I could think of after reading this reply to the previous post about 'strippers' and big ones on Beaver was to use "dollar bills" as bait.
