Oh really? No walleye in the D in spring to early summer?The article stated the catch results were done during the spawning period, so not to many perch or walleye would be in that area at that time. Now do a stomach sampling after the spawn when they put the feed bag on and I'd bet the results would be different.
Yea I assume they are more careful with them than the average angler, but it does sound bad. cooler water that time of year helps tremendously too.Wow. Nice way to protect a fishery. Jam a pipe down a muskies throat and pump water into them. Wonder how many of those spawners they killed. If I were a musky guy I would be furious.
Agreed.Fish are more concerned about breeding than eating at that time. They put the feed bag on after the spawn. That's why most of the stomachs were empty.
Of course! They'll try to eat any struggling or wounded looking fish. Nobody said they won't eat them. Just that they aren't preferred.
