Now THAT'S a dandy!! Good job, I can only imagine your excitement on that one.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

I had a fish on an hour earlier that I couldn't budge. Big head shakes, on for 6 seconds.

Then a few mins later I had a fish in the fig 8 and thwacked it in the head with my rod tip. Lol

I was pretty excited this one stuck. Netting them yourself is always exciting!

Wow
by the way is that a lamprey mark on it's side, or did you not notice.

that would add another 8 inches total length

Standard length weight tables suggest a weight of about 44 pounds at that length.

I don't even have a girth tape on board, or I'd have got that measurement for an even closer estimate!

I need to get one

I dont think it's a lamprey mark...it was a little pink bubble.

The walleye here had those early last fall, but the MNR biologists weren't too concerned.

I have seen lamprey scars and this didn't look quite right to me, but I could be wrong

I have studied a few 10 thousand lamprey marks and do not think that mark is one but I have never seen a sea lamprey scar or wound on a large scaled fish.
