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.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
