I was pretty beat up after an entire weekend of chasing Kitties around so at the last minute we decided to hit Lake Nokomis for some Walleye action in the heart of the big city.
Nokomis like all the Mpls lakes is a trolling motor only lake which really limits the boat action especially after dark.
We got on the water about 10 PM and had the whole place to ourselves.
I set my friend Dave up with a #7 Silver Shad Rapapla and 5 minutes into our trolling adventure he nailed this #24 Eye a couple quick pics and back she went.

Dave was pretty stunned and quite happy as you can see what a night to be on the water it was almost like being in Canada on our own private lake.
Dave then hooked up with a nice 19" and he asked if he could keep one for the Wife she loves fish and the happier the wives are the more my friends get to go fishing.

Then Dave stuck a fat #21 normally I'd throw this one back but since he had one in the box we decided to keep this one also.

Dave even admitted today we should have thrown that 21"er back he said the fillets were huge and almost too thick.

No judgements here...but he's right.
It's tough when all you are getting is those larger eyes.
the bigger they are the muddier they'll taste.

Not to mention a 21 is going to be a great spawner.
He was so excited I acted like I didn't hear him when he asked if he could keep it for his wife I finally caved in after about the 3rd time he asked.
Good news is the lake gets almost no Walleye harvest pressure and the 24" got thrown back.
