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!

If you have spent much time on Lake Winnebago you would know that this is very typical for this time of year. Every angler knew it once the date was pushed back, it would be a grind.

Many "young of the year" are now large enough to be forage, its the peak time of year for that type bait in the lake.

That being said I agree that 5 fish per day with no size limit was too much for the lake to withstand. It still turns my stomach watching guys catch, keep, and brag about "a limit" of 10-12" Walleyes.

I thought the bag limit was dropped to 3.

I agree with you,everybody says take all the white bass you can. Groups taking 300 to 400 fish day after day has to decimate the fishery. Along with 5 fish and no size limit on walleye.The system is in trouble!

If there is so much bait in the system how come the growth rate is so pathetic, sometimes things just don’t add up!

Hard to catch eyes when there bellies are full tons of bait in system.12 or so years ago fished team tournament on Bago system only 4 fish were caught in 2 days 200 plus boats.
