Fishing was really bad today, but caught the my best walleye ever, other than Lake Erie. Just shy of 30”. Got it drifting a night crawler on a jig head under a slip bobber. North end of the lake.

My buddy was gonna weigh it when he got home. Got one other eye, around 22”. A few bass and a couple crappies. Baked our brains today...88 degrees when we finished up.



Buddy said it weighed 8.24 pounds.

I had just cast out 3 lines, 6 lb test, all night crawlers on 1/8 jig heads, slip bobber, set for 8 feet. Bobber went under, set hook. Within a few seconds, I saw big fish, down in about 4 feet of water. I had him for less than a minute, then straightened out the jig head hook. While I was getting that line out, it grabbed another crawler on another line. I instantly knew it was the same fish. Let it tire out for a couple minutes, only took one run, when it saw the boat. My buddy did a good job netting it.

Nice! That's a beauty. Crazy how much that lake has changed over the past 30 years. It's a different fishery and defiinitely far off its quantity peak, but quality of fish is about as good as I've ever seen it.
