“Trophy of-a-lifetime!”

On Memorial Day 2015, I hooked into a fish of a lifetime! Earlier that morning, while trolling in 9-feet of water, I caught and released a 3-pound Walleye. Perhaps this was the beginning of my good luck?

I returned to the cabin for lunch and later a pontoon ride with the family. Later that evening — I decided to go back to that same spot. Trolling in the same area I had caught a Walleye. On my second pass, I noticed a large fish jump out of the water. To my right was a deep hole about 28-feet deep. On the surface of the water I could see what looked like bait fish or a school of Crappies. I thought to myself, “I should cast into them!” On my second cast I hooked into this big fish! I had no net  — and I was fishing by myself. I fought the fish until it tired and then reached into the water and grabbed it. It was huge!

My plans where to let the fish go, but I had to get a picture! I placed the fish in the live well and raced to the cabin to show everyone. This once-in-a-lifetime trophy was eventually released to be caught another day!

“Why sleep, when you can go fishing!”

The alarm went off today at 4:00 a.m. “Why so early,” you may ask? It’s Wisconsin’s Opening Trout fishing season! We arrived at the river — just as the sun came up. The outside thermometer reads -4 degrees below zero! It was cold, but well worth getting up for!
