The walleye is a torpedo-shaped fish ranging from dark olive-brown to yellowish gold, with brassy-flecked sides and a dark splotch at the rear of a spiny dorsal fin. It has two separate dorsal fins and the lower lobe of the tail is tipped with white. Its large, glassy eyes reflect light at night.
State Record: 11 lbs. 6 oz.
