Is it 14 pound walleye wearing a pair of prescription eyeglasses, holding a white fishing rod with a broken rod tip under her right fin?

Thanks for the Monday morning chuckle Dave. I can still hear the ruckus from the inside the fishouse as you hit the floor and shoved your arm in up to your shoulder after those specs. Sounded like that fight McKinnie got in the other night down in Florida. And the look on Huggsters face when he realized his rod got drug in was priceless. I wish had a camcorder. It really would have sucked if we hadn't caught so darn many fish. Its going to be a long week waiting to head back up there.

The way I figure it, the big old fish got my eyeglasses first which she used to locate Huggster's jig. If he wasn't so busy laughing at me for donating my glasses to the fish... he might have noticed his rod traveling towards the hole...

This is the stuff legends are made from.... Wanda the 4 eyed Walleye...

Mark my word, for years to come people will tell of the massive walleye with extraordinary eye sight... She wears prescription eyeglasses.

Myself & the good folks at northwest eye center in TRF are the only one's that know her prescription....

She may have won this weekend, and yes she is somewhat of a super fish amongst fish now with her superior vision advantages.... but she'll slip up sooner or later. I'll keep after her for the rest of my days. Who knows, years down the road, someday I may have a large walleye mounted on the wall that sports a pair of stylish men’s prescription eyeglasses....

someday...

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
