Weekly Photo Challenge: On The Move

Weekly Photo Challenge: On The Movewalleye eggs

Last fall my Dad, with his local Walleyes for Tomorrow chapter, built a “Walleye Wagon“. This “wagon” is actually a portable fish hatchery, just for walleye, and is parked right next to the lake that they both collect the eggs from and release the fry into. Just this last weekend the fish were hatching – we had to stop by and check it out.

Everything was on the move!

The eggs were roiling around on the bottom of the giant flasks, the newly hatched fry were swimming up and floating down, partially hatched ones with just tails sticking out were flailing themselves around in circles, and people were dropping by constantly to see all the excitement.

It was amazing!
