I have caught my first walleye recently and It seems true that walleyes don’t offer much resistance when hooked? I have heard that sometimes a walleye might even die very easily while it is still being reeled in? Is this true? Thank you!Posted on October 2nd, 2015
Walleye are not known for their fighting ability, mostly for their great eating! I have never heard off a walleye dying while it is being reeled-in. If walleye are handles properly and released quickly they should have the same survival rate as other warm-water gamefish.
