I agree Pat...kind of a mixed blessing. We have harvested all the original CC stockers so, if they hadn't successfully spawned, I would not have been able to enjoy that fried catfish dinner with fresh sweet corn from the garden a couple nights ago! grin

We have been removing several LMB to make room for ladder stocking more walleye this fall. Here is a walleye my bride caught tonight. 21 inches 2 lbs 14 oz.

For you folks with small ponds like mine (0.5 acre), IMO don't be afraid of adding a few walleye. As long as you make sure they have forage, IMO they make a great bonus catch!

How many walleye did you put in your pond? I plan to stock some in my small pond this fall.

Thanks Pat. IMO WE are definitely one of the best eating fresh water fish.

Freg,

I stocked 11. I have other apex predators in the pond,(LMB, SMB and CC) so I kept the numbers of WE low to keep from overwhelming my forage base. The WE this size seem to be helping control LMB recruitment which I consider another plus. IMO A 20 inch+ WE can, and do, easily catch and eat 4 to 5 inch LMB. I have 10 more 8 to 10 inch WE on order for ladder stocking this fall.

Dave,

It's been a fun and learning experience for sure! I need to go back and read thru the thread from the beginning someday soon to refresh this old man's memory! Might even find a few things that were left open that I can close the loop on or update.
