Big Walleye

Has anyone ever seen a walleye try to eat another walleye?  I was out fishing today with a couple of guests.  One of the guests hooked into a small walleye and brought it up to the boat.  Immediately when I gazed at the little wally,  I screamed "Northern behind the walleye!" However, upon closer look it was a HUGE walleye that proceded to close the gap on the smaller fish and bite it.  I have NEVER ever seen that happen before.  I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this.  Oh, BTW we never did get that monster in. Take care everyone.



Remember to put the big ones back!

Nathans walleye eating walleye

Hey there Nate - how goes it up there at Big Hook? Glad to see you on line again - you must have been busy fishing.  I only saw a walleye chase a walleye once in my life and it was when my friend Kailey and I were fishing at a remote fly in outpost camp on the Sturgeon River east of Sioux Lookout.  We weren't out of sight of the cabin because we were waiting for the plane to come and take us out.  Kailey caught a walleye about 12 inches long and as I was watching her bring it in - the same thing happened to us.   A huge fish came out of the depths and it looked like it was going to snatch it but it missed and came back a second time. We definitely saw the white on the bottom tip of its tail and got a really good look at it to confirm it was a walleye.  Kailey "figure eighted" the fish on her line with the hope it would come back but it didn't - sure wish we would have had a video camera on that! - Have a great weekend -  Marilee

walleye eating walleye

I have cleaned walleye that had what looked like small walleye in them. Both times I assumed they were perch but I could not tell for sure. Who knows.

Big fish got big by eating when they could a Walleye will eat another Walleye most just don't
see it happen like Pike eating Pike. Life is tough for these fish the weak get eaten.
Ever catch a Walleye on a Walleye look alike Jerk bait  ?  

How about when a big Pike tried to rip a fish off your stringer when these lakes were wild it
was common the orr came out to whack the Pike they got the name Gators or Sharks for good
reason. I recall when you could tie your baits on anchor lines & catch fish not sure if that
would still work today.
Steelleaders were a must or kiss your lures good bye want to find out if a lure was anygood
send it out without a steelleader if it comes back after a few casts without a fish throw it
away.
All  bays were loaded with fish both Pike & Walleyes.
In the 1970's these lakes were fished to death most fish went south some were eaten some
rotted in freezers others were mounted.
Of late they have begun to pick up the pieces slot limits less fish allowed closed seasons,
all this has helped but should have been done over 30 years ago some say the gene pool is
ruined.
This could be why the  birds have taken over theses lakes like commorants.
In years past a commorant would have been eaten when it dove in the water.
