So Bob,
Just how much did my 28" walleye weigh?You can view it if you like.It's on a "different" site.
I'm curious to know what you think it weighed.I never weighed it.Oh,and check out the Largemouth too.It was just shy of 23".Gimme a number in that one too.....pre-spawn in early April by the way.

DaveBien <font color="#00FF00">By any standard that's a nice walleye for the Fox (provided that the background in the pic doesn't look like Lake Erie !!!)</font>

Razzo Be nice guys. I want to see this fish.
From e-mail correspondnace I know he didn't have a scale and guessed the weight.

Without the girth, the best I could allow is 7 pounds and that may be pushing it. More likely 6.5 pound max.

hounddog2 I believe him,I was there......I was sittin there eating some bagel with Elvis on the shore watching pigs fly.

Whats that old expression...Figures never lie but liars figure? Not saying anyone is a liar here, just saying the numbers tell the tale...Unless it was one of those "Leadbelly" walleyes that defy the laws of physics.

JP I was with a friend last week on a private lake out by galena and he caught a 26" walleye which weighed 5.8 lbs on a berkeley digital scale, this fish hadn't spawned yet and was as fat as any walleye I've ever seen, didn't measure girth but 5" wide would be about right if not thicker, making 8lbs a little unrealistic, but you never know. I'll try to post pics when I get film developed onto disk after my upcoming 3 week fishing extravaganza in Florida starting saturday!!!!!

Yes I do have pictures on my digital camera that I used for the very first time on that Walleye. Can someone give me instructions on how to download onto this forum? The fish was definitely heavier than your calculation. It may not have been 8lbs. but it was definitely heavier than 4.88 lbs. I will not give up the exact location but it was in Aurora. The fish was released as my pictures will indicate.
