Walleye, that's the fish record most likely to go down in 2010, according to Indiana biologist Brian Breidert.
A bit over seven years ago, Scott Hoswell of Frankfort proved that possibility when he caught a 14.47-pound walleye from the Port of Indiana on Dec. 11, 2002. It was not accepted as the Indiana record because it was caught from off-limits water.
But evidence like that and other big walleye surveyed in recent years is why Breidert said last week, ``It is not a stretch to think there is a 15-pounder swimming.''
Personally, I think there is as good a chance of the smallmouth record falling, at least on the Illinois side. Others like Mike Starcevich think the yellow perch record for both Illinois and Indiana will go down this spring.
I took a look at fish records likely to fall in southern Lake Michigan in Sunday's outdoors column in the Sun-Times.
