Recent Tournaments Results suggest all is Not well with the system ! 225 Boats and 450 of the (Best) walleye fishermen in the country and over 1/2 cannot catch one fish In a 3 day tournament! Only a handful of angler Teams reported a 5 fish limit, and this is with NO size limit! Weather conditions were very good every day, with just a few wet conditions! Wi.DNR should do a re-evaluation and maybe some honest answers about this system!

The best Walleye Lake in the USA, Lake Erie" has a 15" size limit. Our lake managers are not looking out for the fishermen.

Not as I see it.  Everybody just look at results.

That being said I don't disagree that 'bago is grossly over harvested for a number of years now.

I don't see that as a "Pro" tournament, the vast majority of folks that fish are no different than you or I. Most are just local anglers who toss their hat in a big tournament on their favorite body of water. There are VERY few actual pro anglers, but there are plenty of self proclaimed pro's. 

Secondly the information I saw in the official results showed 284 boats and only 17 zeros for both days. There was 81 total blanks but that was over 568 (284 x 2 days) fishing days then too. Numbers can look as good or bad as you want to present them.

I think if you ask around, for whatever reason, fishing was just bad last weekend on all bodies of water.

Another Pro tournament and 81,  2 man teams got ZERO 15" fish for 2 days in a row. No weather problems, no problems period, just a very low number of fish over 15". WAKE UP.

75 teams; 31 go without a fish. 

Shaping up to be a lean year.

Have been fishing Winnebago only 10 years, and have noticed changes in the perch and walleye concentrations. Crappie went from not many to a lot. We do not keep any walleye under 16" or over 22". We also were happy to see the 3 bag limit on eyes. The system is working but again have been fishing Winnebago only 10 years, still learning!!
