Large fish are almost exclusively females. With Walleye especially, it is now generally accepted that the larger the female is, the more successful spawner she is. They do not necessarily produce as many eggs per pound but their eggs are larger and healthier with a much higher viability, hatch success, and health. They also tend to be genetically larger which increases the growth rate of the population. So releasing the big ones is the best thing to do to ensure great future fishing. And taking a picture of your Tophy Walleye or Trophy Northern Pike gives you something for your wallete, and our website and a picture allows you to have a replica made if you do want a trophy fish on your wall.
