Smallies are bycatch trash fish. I'd rather catch walleye than eat when I'm hungry.

You might be mistaken on the "native" New Walleye.  Native to the Clinch, Big Sandy, etc. drainage perhaps, but I don't think the Walleye is native to the New River.  Ken also may be smoking his socks when he lumps them as "yankee pop eyed prairie perch".

Best fish I ever tasted were MN Walleye, all you could eat at a mom-and-pop joint in northern MN.

Rock on!

George Palmer did his graduate work on the New River walleye and found there exists two genetically distinct stocks: one lotic and one lentic. The lotic stock (or strain) spawns in the river is always bigger.

The genetics of the river strain is more similar to a strain of walleye found in the Rockcastle River in KY than any lake strain known. It is unique in that it has never been found anywhere else except the New. They are restocking New River strain walleyes by testing large female and males via fin clips and protein analysis prior to spawning them at the Buller fish hatchery.

Also, the old timers will tell you about them. They called them "pike".

Smallies are non-native though

And then you can eat wally, which is the best eating freshwater fish in North America.

Smallmouth taste like shit.

Bonus points for the bold use of spinning rawds.

That last one sure looks much healthier than those runty runts pulled from Little T, or Linville.

G man, are the Walleyes below Leesville Lake Lotic?  Clearly you are catching resident Walleye on the Old, but the fishery at the Staunton are described as seasonal, implying they are lake fish.  Like most content on the internet, I suspect this former assessment is regurgitated mess from a half wit.

Okay, maybe yer right, they taste like a used tampon.  :banana072:

you need to go get some of them pop-eyed perch and fry the fuckers in some beer batter. The only thing that might be better from fresh water is striper.

native range extends pretty far south...

The one time I tried yellow perch was at lake eerie. It was good. I chose it over walleye. I wish I would've tried the walleye before leaving.

Phil

Walleye and yellow perch are both super eating. Better than any bass or crappie.
