I had a buddy who caught a 32 1/2 inch walleye on Cross Lake a couple years ago. He caught it in the heat of summer and it wieghed a touch over 9 lbs. That fish should of been over 12.lbs. he said it was very sickly and let it go. He did get a Synthatic(spell check) mount that look way better than actual fish did.
