Here's a pretty neat pic of a walleye that was said to be 14lbs shocked up by the Ky Fish & Wildlife Dept. in the Cumberland River, below Wolf Creek Dam on Lake Cumberland.

According to the state website it's 21-8, caught in 1958 out of Lake Cumberland. I'm thinking that the state record walleye would have been the native strain of walleye, and the current breed is the lake erie variety. Alot of the serious walleye fisherman don't like it because they don't tend to grow as large but have better reproduction according to the state. I may have that all confused but there is a constant beef with alot of walleye fisherman and the states stocking practice regarding walleye, and which strain is stocked.
