Glenn Henning Tournament Results
The Long Lake Fishing Club’s annual Glenn Henning
fishing tournament was held on June 1st.
On a beautiful morning which ended up quite windy,
15 anglers participated in the annual Long Lake
Fishing Club spring fishing tournament. This year no
one was skunked. Seven Northerns and 27 Bass were
registered and for the fifth year in a row no legal
Walleyes were brought in (but some undersize fish
were caught).

On a humorous note the third place finisher was
supposed to have his wife as his fishing partner, but
decided at the last minute he wanted someone in
the boat that could catch fish so he invited the first
place finisher along instead. All worked out for
them, and even the wife showed up at Benson’s
after hearing the results to make sure some of the
prize money went to the right individuals.
A big thank you to Mark Fuller for donating his $40
prize back to the club. Thanks to all those who
participated and Bensons Hide Away Resort for the
use of their facilities.

Walleye Fingerlings Planted
In Long Lake
By Lori Dhein
On July 11, 2013 14,500 two inch Walleye fingerlings
were planted in Long Lake by the Wisconsin
Department of Natural Resources with the help of
the Long Lake Fishing Club.
Kyle Benson, Charlie Benson and Brian Ebert gently
placed the baby fingerlings in several areas of Long
Lakes in hopes of them growing into record size
Walleye fingerlings soon to be released into Long Lake by our
own Long Lake Fishing Club volunteers.

The Wisconsin Walleye
The initiative
Walleye have always been a very important gamefish
species in Wisconsin from both cultural and economic
perspectives. The Wisconsin Walleye Initiative (WWI)
was developed by the Department of Natural
Resources, DNR Administration and the Governor’s
office to dramatically increase the number of walleyes
in state walleye waters by expanding production of
large fingerling walleye at state, private and tribal
fish hatcheries for stocking in waters accessible to the
public. This historic investment in Wisconsin’s walleye
fishery will benefit all users and Wisconsin’s economy
due to increased tourism.
$8.2 million for infrastructure improvements and $1.3
million each year for annual operating costs will be
provided to expand production at DNR state fish
hatcheries. Production should increase from 60,000
to 120,000 large walleye fingerlings to well over
500,000 by 2016.
One time funding of $2 million is also being provided
for a competitive grant program for municipal, tribal
and private aquaculture facilities to improve their
infrastructure and enhance the capabilities to stock
additional large fingerling walleye in Wisconsin’s
$500,000 is being provided annually starting in FY 1415 to purchase large fingerling walleye for stocking in
Wisconsin’s waters from private fish farms. Several
states including Indiana and Minnesota have had
success improving their walleye fisheries with
purchases of walleye fingerlings from private sources.
$250,000 General purpose revenue will be provided
annually to expand the summer Tribal Youth
Program. This program is a state-tribal partnership,
with a 50-50 funding split, that provides tribal high
school-aged youth an opportunity to work on natural
Page 3
resource-related projects during the summer.
This initiative has been in place since 2007 with
the Chippewa---Lac du Flambeau, Lac Courte
Oreilles and Red Cliff tribes. The proposal
would expand the program and include the
state’s remaining eight tribal nations. A new
annual appropriation would be created to
distribute funds for this program.
Stocking plan for larger fish
The fastest way to “move the needle” is to stock
more and larger walleyes in lakes across the
state that can support additional walleye
While not all lakes would benefit from enhanced
walleye stocking, there are up to 500 lakes
across the state whose walleye fisheries may be
improved by enhanced stocking.
The initiative being developed plans to increase
the stocking of large fingerling walleye by an
estimated 500,000 to 850,000 fish, depending on
grant proposals and contract bids that come
These larger (6- to 8-inch fish) are more
expensive to produce but survive to catchable
size at a much higher rate than fry or small
fingerlings, which have traditionally been
stocked, because they are too large for
predators to eat.
Large fingerlings are stocked in fall. Research
shows they average 20 percent survival.
To better define the role that private
aquaculture can play in future stockings of
Wisconsin’s waters, DNR will partner with DATCP
and UW Extension to study barriers to private
fish farm growth in Wisconsin and to
characterize private aquaculture’s capacity to
play a significant role in stocking greater
numbers of large fingerling walleyes.
