    Does anyone have any pictures of young/baby walleye around a inch or so. I got a fish from a local bait shop in with the feeders that looks like a walleye, but not possitive i would just like some pics to compare it to. Thanks

    Is that them? Those things look almost exactly like sticklebacks to me. Only their fins are different. Check if they have 2 or 1 dorsal fin. Walleye have 2. AND they have pelvic fins. Sticklebacks don't have pelvic fins at all, although some have a single spine in place of them. I dunno how you can tell the difference between them and darters. You would probably have to watch the way they swim. I am sure you have already checked google though. This is the best I can do for now.

    Here is a bigger one: (it has been "branded")
