Big Walleye in Sunset Country

There are lots of 24" plus fish to be caught and released!

These are some Big walleyes that were caught and released this past year in Ontario's Sunset Country.

Everyone loves to eat walleye, but these big ones were released to live another day to go on to spawn next year. Larger 'eyes don't taste as succulent as the smaller walleye which is great for the fisheries in Northwest Ontario. Thankfully the trend is to release the large ones back into the water. Gone are the days of mounting these trophy walleyes on a wall. Today taxidermists can recreate an exact replica with a photo and some measurements.  

Take a look at these beautiful walleye caught in Ontario in 2014:
