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!

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
