They don't have to be 18" at any of the Barrs... and you'll catch some fish over 18" too. But I am sure Slayer has already given you the intel on that. There must be a reason why you are sticking to the Crack... I wouldn't say there's no use in pics of 17" walleyes. Why, Slayer manages to make reports on average sized walleye entertaining and, in the process, gets more views than other people posting 10 pounders. It's in the art of the reporting; not the content.

That's for sure! I bet it's a ball to go on a fishing with him.

I can’t take credit for the Zebra nomenclature, I commandeered the term from Zman, and yes I thought the same thing , vertical not horizontal.

But it stuck and I call them Zebra now lol.

Any I catch these days I consider a welcome bonus.


Haven’t fished specially for them since Union had a good population.

Went North. Virtually had entire lake to ourselves Wed,Thur,Fri. Caught over 100 eyes most under 15". However I managed a few chubbers these two equaled 8 lbs in 15 minutes. Got some nice bobos but too busy to take pics. On Metal-

Winds were manageable for me Thursday night. It was a different story Friday night. Even the shore herd was thinned out. They had to stand a good 10 ft from the water, and they were still getting splashed. My Mortorguide would not get GPS signal Friday night. It was just a waste of time trying to control my boat without it. I never had lost GPS signal with my Minn Kota. I came back home, unplugged it, plugged it again, and it got GPS signal again. Should have tried the good old cure all remedy when I was on the water: reboot.

Fishing was OK Thursday night. Friday only yielded a smallie, which don't count. I came back home Saturday morning. A friend who stayed behind did not do good Saturday evening, and he knows the lake a lot better than me, so I didn't miss anything. I only caught 1 zebra. Walleye fishing was better. Biggest 2 were about 9 lbs each. Sorry about the blurry pictures. Kinda hard to hold the camera steady when the boat is rocking...

Finally did some catching. I only got about 15 minutes to fish before it was too chaotic in the boat with two kids under 3.5 years old. It turned out to be the right 15 minutes though.
