It has been tough for me lately with 5 skunks in row in a week +. I probably could have gone to to wash the skunk at some metro area puddles, but what fun is that (I know it can actually be pretty fun)? I broke the string of skunks yesterday with a 9 pounder. I know it is going to sound like a fish tale, but my phone battery failed, so no picture of that one.

Tonight was a little better with another 9 pounder (below) and an eater size walleye. The funny thing is that I almost had another phone failure... As I bent down to release the bigger walleye, I heard something fall in the water. I thought it was my tape measure at first and felt no urgency to pick it up. Then my phone lit up in the water. I was going to revive the walleye before I let it go, but scrambled to grab my phone instead. The fish swam off just fine anyway.

At that point, I was thinking to myself: I should have just taken that bastage home! :biggrin1: That'll teach it not to make people drop their phones in the water in the future! >:D But the phone phone barely took in any water. I dried it up on the air vent on my windshield on my way and it is fine now. 8)

Look, orange glow, Bobys:

I like reality posts. I am learning that every great angler still has to put in a lot of work to hoist a trophy. I guess that what keeps us chasing 'em, too bad walleyes suck at fighting, and stalking them all thru the night has lost its appeal.

Props to those of you confused enough about fishing to "want" to chase them all thru the night......:bored:

Heatlhy fish Linh!

Great fish AO. I'm still on the search to find one of those legendary fatties.

One of the lakes I hit this week is not too far from where I work. Driving nearly an hour to a lake and spending as much time driving home was becoming a grind. Being able to fish for a couple of hours after work is nice if I can be home before 10PM. I think I've only been out past 10PM once this season. Frequency vs endurance. There aren't any species that I want to chase in Colorado that bite just as much (or better) during the day time.

You're 100% vampire in my book!
I guess I am a vampire by extension. :cool: I have fished with you. Never fished with the other folks calling themselves vampires.

Nice Linh! I know that background.... You are having better luck than me! Coming up on finals I haven't been out as much but have got out 3 nights in the last week. Skunked all three. Would probably have better success if I left the crackhole but that'll have to wait until I'm on break here soon. Hopefully I can get a big eye over my break!

I feel you on the tough streak there, but keeping after em! Nice work as always. 8)
It's not just "there" that's been tough for me. BTW, the fish in the pics are not from "there," but I did catch one "there" on Wednesday (the other 9 pounder for which I have no pic), so hopefully it will pick up for you too.
