Opener was a bit of a bust this year as our camp got completely washed out by the storm. Late to post but upgraded my best by .5, it was 27.5 for anyone who is interested but the most gorgeous walleye I’ve ever laid eyes on 😉

Gorgeous fish
That blue could be the camera's white balance messed up.

Might have been the light but it looked blue when we pulled it up. Had a white belly instead of gold as well.

Nice one 👍🏽
In a local Muskoka lake I’ve found that when they’re smaller, they tend to all be the yellow/green, and once they’re up around 4-5 lbs plus, the walleye vary more, some similar yellow green ones and some more grey/white.

When we vacuum seal them whole after gutting them, even the green/gold ones seem to have a blueish slime you can see in the creases of the vac bags. The ones we get in Quebec at least. Also agree with Drew that the bigger ones seems to be more prone to this blueing. A lot of them have Blue/green at the backs of their tails and the dorsal fin, seems to be the most notable locations when they just have a tinge of blue. All this walleye talks make me want to go night fishing!
