Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update


Fishing Ethics
Preserving the Walleye and Their Habitat


As anglers, we have certain responsibilities as well as numerous opportunities to catch our fill of Walleye. Walleye are unpredictable fish, and this means they can be found almost anywhere in the water. A good angler knows that underwater structure, ledges, shelves, and other spots that conceal the fish are perfect habitats for Walleye to hide in to catch bait fish and other food. These places must be fished carefully though, to prevent any damage to the natural habitat that the Walleye call home.

It's important to not overfish an area, because this can cause a rapid decline in the number of Walleye and affect the spawning and number of these fish in the future as well.

Of course, as anglers we must always respect the limits set by the DNR. Remember that it is their job to protect the extremely important Walleye fisheries and habitats to ensure these fish are available for future generations as well, and that they stay plentiful in the lake.

We must also follow the size limits in effect as well. These limits prevent the taking of all the large older fish, to ensure that the species is not harmed.

Many anglers practice catch and release, especially if the Walleye is a large one. Many anglers are taking pictures of their trophy fish and then releasing them back into the water. We should also not take more fish than we will consume or give to our friends and family, even if that means stopping before we have our limit.

It is always good to show respect for the water and habitat and to try not to do any damage to underwater structure, or to harm any of the weeds or aquatic life in the waters.

Whether using live bait, jigs, planer boards, or other baits and techniques, Walleye fishing can be fun and friendly to the environment and fish at the same time. Look in unusual places and unlikely spots, and you may just end up with a trophy Walleye to show for it.

When catching Walleye, take care not to harm the fish, especially when removing the hook and if you are going to release them. If too much damage is done to the mouth of the Walleye when removing the hook, even if released the fish may not survive.

It's always a good idea to use techniques and tackle that are ideal for the circumstances and to try to use bait and lures which match the natural food supply of the Walleye in the area.

Walleye can be one of the best tasting fish you can catch, but when we make sure we are taking all possible steps not to disrupt the natural habitat or the cycles of the fish, we are keeping the Walleye population at an optimum level, and helping to guarantee a great Walleye fishing spot for years to come.

Remember, when catching and releasing, you are giving a gift to another angler sometime in the future. After all, who knows...the fish you've just caught may just be a gift from someone else!
