Ladies first walleye! 5-25

9 posts in this topic

I took a Lady Friend fishing on Mille Lacs for her first attempt at walleye fishing, she was very inexperienced at fishing to say the least. It was a nice sunny day with no wind to speak of and I figured that we would at least spend a pleasant afternoon on the water. About twenty minutes after we started trolling some three ways with leeches I hear her meakly say "I think I have a fish", that was an understatement of large proportion! When we finaly landed her catch it turned out to be a 29 1/2 inch walleye, her first ever! She was still smiling and calling all her friends today when I dropped her off at home!

Nice fish! Who cares if she kept it or released it. It always comes down to that for some people.

Senior that's a great story. Congratulations to your Lady friend. Funny how that happens. We were on Mille yesterday and we drifted by a Guy and his 6 year old so and watched his son catch his first Walleye ever. A 25" beauty. The son was holding up the Polaroid pictures and showing them to us and saying" Look I caught a 25 POUND Walleye" and grinning from ear to ear. We all laughed and said, yep, he's definatley a fisherman now.

      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
