News flash: The walleye hunger strike is over. National news reports of the walleye hunger strike may have discouraged some would-be Lake Minnetonka home buyers. As you may already know, walleyes organized a hunger strike about two years ago to protest high gas prices. Higher gas price were discouraging many Twin Cities fishermen from making their long treks to their favorite fishing spots up north every weekend. “Increased gas prices have filled our lake with lots of shiny things with dangerous hooks on them,” says Edmond (‘the Fin’) O’Rourke, president of WUTUP (Walleyes United to Unleash Power.) “We own Lake Minnetonka homes too, and we don’t want to see any more cases of hook-in-mouth disease in our community. We haven’t had this much trouble since the introduction of the weedless treble hook. Also, there are so many new lures out there that the teachers of our schools are not equipped to teach walleye fingerlings about all of the new hazards.”
However, the strike was broken when the MN Department of Natural Resources stocked the lake with “scab walleyes” and gas prices eased up a bit. Also, many members of WUTUP broke ranks when they discovered that the fishermen from the Twin Cities were using nice, tasty, big fat black leeches from Kirby’s.
