Nice size walleyes are being caught

What does a 25.5-inch walleye weigh, Troy wondered?

Troy and Jane Bechtel show off some of the big walleyes they have been catching and releasing this week. There have been a lot caught in the mid-20-inches.
What do they weigh? You can figure the weight of Red Lake walleyes from their length. Twenty-four inches is four pounds, 25 inches is five pounds, 26 is six pounds, etc.
Troy said he has never weighed any of the walleyes before and wondered if the 25.5-incher he holds up in the top photo would hold true to the above estimates. Sure enough, it was 5.5 pounds.
