And she weighed 12.6 lbs ;D Gotta love Pre Spawn!

Got skunked twice earlier in the week but the week isn't over till the Fat lady sings! Also got a 7 lber while I was waiting.

She coughed up a 6" Gizzard Shad as i was beaching her.

Like most we got towed, only later (around 4:30). SMB was the target but no such love. My friend (brand new to jerkbaits) got to experience a new thrill when he hooked into a nice walleye on a pause. It measured 17 7/8" & of couse it was released. Picked up some trout too while moving spots & when we got out the lipless cranks. We tucked in beneath a wind sheltered point with trees, while using spot lock to keep things enjoyable- just couldn't move to the spots we wanted. I saw one guy leaving with his boat 5 minutes after they opened. The wind was ferocious!

Thanks guys! She was 29" by 20"
That is a PIG!
I wish i would of actually weighed her instead of using the Walleye Central calculator.

She will make a very healthy egg donation soon! She really fought well also! She did not like it when her belly hit the sand, lol.

With those measurements and that clear picture you could get an awesome replica made.

Picture fixed. That upside down job didn't do it justice. I was having to turn my laptop upside down to see it. :D

I may actually do that? Do you have any suggestions for a taxidermist?

I caught one on Holloween night in 2009 that was 31" long and had beautiful dimensions! Unfortunately I dropped my camera in the lake that night :( I still think it was bigger?

I didn't realize how good of a picture I got till I got home last night!

The best fish taxidermist around is Tony Cannova, but he's not cheap. I don't know what a replica walleye would run. If I ever bust 45# on a lake trout, that's who will do the replica. Beautiful work.
