Trophy Walleye

2 posts in this topic

This walleye was caught by a friend of mine August 17, 2006 near a reef out from Arnesen's Resort. It measured 31 plus inches, the taxidermist who just finished mounting it said it weighed 12 pounds frozen. The fish went for a hammered gold spinner with a nightcrawler in 30 feet of water.

What a beauty shocked.gif Isn't it amazing the number of trophy fish swimming in it's waters. Haven't had the fortune of landing something in the same zip code as that beast but it is yet another reason why I keep making the trip. grin.gif Congrats to your friend!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
