Walleye enthusiasts want the Montana Legislature to fully embrace the fish, but some find their proposal hard to swallow.

A bill up for a state Senate hearing this week calls on legislators to declare walleye, with big eyeballs and meat that is easily separated from bone, a native of Montana even though scientists widely say the fish was transplanted to the state.


Now why would Montana want to do this?

It seems everyone wants to claim the walleye as "Their Fish," but the truth is, and we all know it... the walleye is a Minnesota native fish and no amount of dickering by other states,albeit senate, congress or whatever, won't change that fact.

Okay... Wisconsin too... but THAT'S IT!

Michigan and Ohio will probably fight w/you too. However, Michigan's official state fish is the brook trout, and Ohio does not have one although walleye is the unofficial state fish.
