      Amazing!!

      I just cooked up the 27" walleye I caught last Saturday, and it was great! Cooked up a 16" with it to make a meal for 2, and after chunking up and trimming off all red meat, they tasted exactly the same. It's amazing it didn't turn to $hit when it hit 23", or was it 24", or 25", or 22"? I can never remember when the meat magically turns to $hit. Of course, it was NEVER FROZEN! I believe that is a major factor in eating fish.

      Oh, and for all the guys that think I should have let it go, it was worth to much $$$, as I was in a tournament. There's a pic in the pic page. Might have kept it anyway as bad a year as I am having getting to eat fish.

      Yep, they taste the same as a 14 inch fish...because they are the same. The only thing you should be able to notice is that the texture is a little coarser (bigger flakes).

      And, of course, the bigger they get...the more they start tasting like a thermometer.

      I have ate every walleye I have caught above about 12", unfortunately this is more a reflection on my ability to catch fish vs rampant greed that seems to be the core of most situations. I caught a 7lb personal best, ate it, it was great.

      I bake those big fish I can't release. Sprinkled over a salad, that baked walleye is very not icky.

      Like Allen said, I like the extra fortified mercury in the bigger fish as well. Can't beat it!

      like Rowdie said cut the red meat out better fish, big fish have a lot of that. go ahead and tell me that it doesn't taste different if you don't cut it out. bs the bigger the fish the more red meat they have and the older they are. I keep fish when I'm out of fish not just to fill up a freezer. I'm not starving so me keeping a fish over 23 is hard for me to do. running a knife in a big fish is sad for me. I could give a shit if anyone keeps a limit of 30 inch walleyes. i guess if you shore lunch and deep fry road kill would taste good too.

      If mercury makes you sterile, at 70 I guess I am done caring so I don't give a rats ass. Eat them all.

      actually it is quite tasty, pan fried with butter and mushroooms

      (meaning the road kill . . .)

      and don't knock it until you try it

      How do you bleed out a Walleye? I fished with a guide a few years ago and he told me he always did that and I saw him do something with a scissors but didn't get a good look. Is that supposed to have some affect on the meat flavor?

      If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.
