The walleye chosen for this particular paint schedule was a rather small, nineteen-inch, two-pound specimen. It was caught in Ontario waters through the ice in mid-March. Our ice fishing season closes on March 31, and most of these fish are caught out in the bay just prior to heading upstream to spawn. The walleye in the Georgian Bay area tend to be very light in color, similar to those from Lake Erie. I believe this is due to the shallow, limestone-based waters.
