LAKE WINNEBAGO — Blogger Jeff Kelm caught a rare blue walleye caught on Lake Winnebago on July 27, 2013.

A blue walleye is an extremely uncommon sight in Wisconsin and Kelm feels very lucky to have caught it.

The fish was sent to the University of Wisconsin-Washington County for study. The university is doing research on blue walleye in Canada and the upper midwest and is collecting information on sightings as well as samples of liquid mucous from the skin of the fish.

Dr. Wayne Schaefer at the university can be reached at

Visit Schaefer's website devoted to blue walleye.
