How deep is too deep?
« on: Jan 01, 2017, 12:22 PM »
How deep would you consider too deep to be fishing for walleye and releasing fish? A couple of the spots I've been thinking about trying have spots that are 25 to 40 ft. With our slot limit i don't want to be having to release fish that are going to die.

25-30 will be ok. Around 30 they will start to show signs of barotrauma. a descending device may be a good tool to have if you choose to fish deeper.

If your worried about fishing that deep I suggest buying
Sebile Sea QualizerSQL 49.99 on Amozon.   You can let fish go to 150' deep Tightlines
10% of the fisherman catch 90% of the fish .....im a 10% are you?
