Went out tonight to fish the rocks on Mille lacs, typical early ice, shallow bite, small window of oppertunity, we ended up keeping 5, and releasing two gorgeous walleyes over 26. All of our fish were caught within 45 minutes of each other, Mike and I started off with doubles and as soon as they moved in they were gone. We made the most of it, capitalized on the bites we had and put some very respectable fish out on the ice.
North end again of the lake, Slender Spoons, Glo-Devils and Jigging Raps. One Eater on Ice:
Mike with his two:
The release, gotta love that tail whoosh!
The other fish we didnt get any stills of, wish we would have, we were busy doing another video shoot on ice. Another fun trip on the big pond!
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
