    That was a great article. For those that don't have the time to read it, the author says:
    -Western Basin walleye diet is 58% gizzard shad
    -Western Basin wally diet is 2% yellow perch
    -Yellow perch diet used to eat about 50% fish and 50% invertedbrates
    -Yellow perch now eat 80% invertebrates IE Mayflies, water fleas, and midges.
