I figured it would come and it did tonight, a call for a walleye stocking program in southern Lake Michigan in response to two documented big walleye from downtown Chicago in the past year.
On Thursday, Mike Osuch caught his of 7 pounds, 5.5 ounces.
Toni Pellegrino caught her 6.75-pounder on Oct. 8, 2007.
The proposal came as a comment I pulled from the original posting about Osuch's catch and it becomes the seventh ``Borrowed hooks & other looks,'' other views of Chicago-area outdoors.
The pitch is below.
For years now I wanted to start a orginazation for stocking Walleyes in the southern part of Lake Michigan. Something like Salmon Unlimited did. Form a large group of fisherman, get donations and pay for them ourselves. The only thing that stopped me was the same thing that first stopped S.U., the DNR.
If we had a large enough group we could put enought pressure on the DNR so they let us stock them. I am a board member of Perch America and our Wolf Lake Walleye stocking is a great SUCCESS. If we got the ok and let the DNR oversee our stockings my question is?
What are your opinions. Pro or Con
Thanks Ken S.
