I've heard so many stories on this one from Rainy Lake too Europe to photoshop so i dont know what to think, i know its not from MN since we would have known and the DNR would have made a great deal about it.

Hiya-

The two photos are unrelated.

The bottom photos are of a fish from Holland, caught in March of 2006 by Ewout Blom. Just shy of 50 inches, and just under 40 pounds...

Cheers,

I know one of the gentlemen that was on this particular fishing trip and saw the pictures a few weeks after her returned. He is a member of the same church that I attend. I believe these are origianl photos with no tampering. As far as a record, I can not say. All I know is the gentleman was schocked by the size and how it was caught.

We all know that it is better to be fishing and thinking about Jesus than sitting in church thinking about fishing!!!

Looks like the gentleman at my church has some explaining to do. Looks like he fed me and all the men at the church a fish story. I haven't seen him in a few weeks; isn't that strange?

      Tom and I had a decent bite Monday but it's been tough 2 of my last 3 outings. Bored a bunch of holes and hopped.  Got ours on mostly plastics of every configuration.  Had to keep moving to stay on more aggressive schools of fish.  This meant we continually left fish to find cooperative fish.  When the bite got really tough wacky rigging a micro noodle was the only ay to get them to go.  Had several between 9 and 9 1/2 inches.  These were all deep flat fish near a deeper hole.  Midday was best for us.  Slow in the morning and again later in the afternoon.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!
