Something fishy is going on here.

Ok, I have a challenge for you. Find two trophy fish recently posted on this forum. Now show me something that distinctivly seperates them.

What I'm saying is both fish are the same length, same weight and funny, same bloody sore near the tail.

When do I get to catch it wink.gif

dtro comes through with the eagle eyes!!

Jim W. & WWG caught the same fish. Unless, there is a contagious disease affecting 10lb walleyes in which a small red scar appears on the left side near the tail.

dtro- When you do catch it, hold the fish with the other side to the camera. No one will no the difference! wink.gif

Uh OH!

You caught me! I have had that walleye on a leash all fall! grin.gif

Seriously though. It is the same fish. Both fish were caught in the same area a few weeks apart.

I just pulled up the original photos and found a "wart" just above the anus and some more on the tail.

Incredible!!

Good eye,

That is a great example that Catch & Release really works. Especially for the bigguns. So I guess it's our turn to catch her now. If it wasn't for this work thing I'd be out chasing her right now.

Later

Maybe that's the only 10 pounder in the river. She's still there though. She spit out about a 6 or 7 inch channel cat the night I caught her. I don't think she's having any problem with her appetite. She'll be 11 or 12 the next time she's caught.

Lets see the two photos side by side once. I can't tell from the other one of Jim's.

Maybe this fish is the same one I caught last May at 9# ooo.gif

If you would have cut the date out of the bottom picture you might have been able to get away with saying you caught the fish to.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
