Video: Where the Walleye Go to Spawn

It's a sure sign of spring when the walleye congregate in huge numbers.

There's something mesmerizing about watching a large school of fish take part in the annual spawning tradition.

Fish can congregate in the thousands, with the sole purpose of ensuring their genes are passed on to future generations.

The folks over at Red Lake Outfitters, a Canadian canoe and wilderness company located in Ontario's Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, filmed this sure sign of spring May 7.

Keep an eye peeled for the one lone pike among the hundreds of walleye.

For those wondering about ice out and the spawn, check out this little video from today....YUP, those are all chunky WALLEYE with the exception of the hungry Northern Pike that came in for a look. Gotta love this time of year!

Earlier this week we shared an incredible video showcasing a pair of Wisconsin River muskie spawning. Now that's a rare sight to see!

Welcome back, spring. We sure missed you.
