When it comes to shoring up Lake Erie's highly valued walleye stocks, which currently are foundering as badly as the world economy, the elusive search is on for magic bullets.

Fisheries biologists and managers have looked at most if not all of the proposals - many are resurrected whenever walleye stocks cycle downward, as now - and they would be only too glad to adopt them if they made science sense.

Stocking hatchery-reared walleye in the lake is one such example...

Another major campaign has taken aim at First Energy's Bay Shore Power Plant...

Another contentious issue is the dumping of Maumee Ship Channel dredgings in the open waters of the outer bay......

Which leaves, among major suggestions, the question of closure of fishing during spring spawning......
