The Walleyes started to come on Oct.20th.I made 11 trips from the 20th. to the 31st.I landed 32 from 15-21 in.,releasing all the ones over 19in.and any that appeared to be egg bearing femalesIt's fizzled out considerably as all good bites do.This morning I only caught 1 small one but the last mystery fish I hooked was headed down river as he spooled me on 10# test.I'm just learnin how to fish.Next story Dec.1st.

Ken It did feel like a Big "eye".But..In that river it could be A BIG Striper,Flat Head, who knows.it would take 25ft.of line..then stop,I'd try to get some back,but when it felt my pressure,it would move down stream again.after a few rounds of that I was almost out of line so I palmed the spool a little to apply a bit more pressure and the hook pulled.I had no way to chase him down stream without swimming.I was telling this guy in a canoe about it.He said he hooked a fish last year that he couldn't stop with 50# braid and he's caught 54in.Stripers from his canoe.He has a friend that caught a small Sturgen last year & I knew a guy I used to fish with at night for stripers at the dam back in the 60s that had a big one free jump next to his boat one night that he said almost gave him a heart attack.My fish wasn't that big though.You guys "Catchum Up"
