Somebody caught one in LM last year, and posted pictures here. I could be wrong, but I think it was somewhere around Wilmette. In the 100's of times I have fished LM, I have never seen one. Or seen anyone catch one. It makes sense that they might be along the lakefront as you go through Indiana and Michigan. I have caught them in the St Joe river, which is barely into Michigan and either runs into or away from LM. I don't think there's a conspiracy going on here, they're just rare. Very rare.

From what I have seen, they are really not in the lake, but the rivers that hook up to the lake.....The miluwakee river has a pretty good population, but its due to the stocking program....in new bufflo on the fall they do pretty good in the river

Is there any reason why they don't stock Lake Michigan with walleye. Besides the obvious funding problems?

there really are not that many reefs, or structure to hold them...then factor in the number of fishermen that would target them...

I would love to have walleye fishery right here in are own back yard...but to get it going, we would need to crate more reefs, stop the stocking of salmon, and put some pretty tight regs on walleyes...

with the cuts at the DNR, enforcing regs to protect the walleye population is not there.

The salmon sport fishing brings in lots of $$$ to the communities

just look at the problems up in Miluakee the walleye guys are having trying to stock native walleyes into the lake.

walleye like salmon also:

134 walleyes stomachs were sampled. The number of chinook salmon smolts per stomach ranged from 1 to 3. It was estimated that the stocked walleye consumed 1,123 and 30,162 chinook salmon smolts prior to their migration from the Milwaukee Estuary, in 1996 and 1997 respectively.
