    You heard right. We used to catch walleye by accident when trolling night crawlers for big browns. Scary looking fish, but GOOD EATING! It's one of the few fish I can eat.

    i think i asked it wrong lol. i know there are walleye below Center hill i have caught about 10 -12 this yr. and a buddy caught two about 7-8lbs this yr.

    i heard some one caught one like 16 or so lbs. i was just wondering if anyone knew about this or knew of some pics. cause my friend that seen it said it was scary big.

    Walleye are a relative to pike (correct?), they at least have very close similarities. So, I can see walleye getting big but the biggest we've caught is maybe 5 pounds.
