Andy Lewis May 12, 2010 at 6:17 pm Reply Gord, Great Blog material! I learned a lot. The future of walleye fishing on Eagle looks very bright. The two things that surprised me the most:– Walleyes can live to be 25 years old. I had no idea.– The percentage of walleyes in the slot categories is going down? This is probably more a reflection of the growth in the total population, but this surprised me a bit. You would think that the protection of these fish would lead to a larger percentage? It does have me wondering about the mortality rate of fish released in this category? When did the restriction on night fishing go into effect on Eagle? I couldn't find any mention of this in the literature and was wondering if this has a lot to do with the growth in the walleye population.
