All of the guys I fish with still focus on the "Sport" of walleye fishing. As it was the tradition in the Winnebago System in the past. Nothing under 15", only enough for a meal or two, (how can you fish for eyes if you have 10 fish in the freezer already?) and always release anything over 20". Especially the females. With the increase in guide fishing, the focus today is on "we got the meat"! The more fish they can catch, keep and post, the more 'clients' they feel they will get. And the more money they can make. Nothing "WRONG" with that. I'm simply pointing out that the rules and regs for the system were never designed to conserve the walleye population given today's 'meat and money' over 'sport' focus. Gillespie and others on TV, STILL keep with that sport focus as well. As one pointed out. They are not the 10+ guides trying to make a living 'every day' 'while they can' on the water I was referring to. Nor is the problem I speak of the "Guides" themselves. When keeping within the rules and regs, nothing wrong with such a cool living and more power to them! It's rules and regs that are not in time with today's fishing pressure. I used catch 25 fish in less than an hour, and on many days/year. The last 5 years it happens only once/year and takes 2 hrs. So yes, I for one, have noticed a big decline in walleye numbers. Yes there are many other people who can catch 25 fish in a couple hours. And they KEEP every last one of them! Iv'e watched them do it...... 3 fish limit, the now 3 instead of 1 warden to cover the system and catch poachers, and guides not allowed to keep fish "While Guiding".
