2fer1 luck as told by jism

was fishing Lac Suel and foul hooked a 15" walleye, set my custom made jigging rod with high end shimano reel down and was attempting to free the fish. it flipped out of my hands and one hopped back into the water, before i could react my rod followed. luckily one of my mates had the presence to throw a buoy and then we started throwing everything we could to try and snag my rod. took about 10 minutes but it worked and my buddy hooked my line (6lb test) and was able to pull in my rod. he handed it to me and i proceeded to re-land the little walleye when WHOOF a big northern took the walleye. i got the bail open to give it some line, then got the fish turned and got a look, it still had the walleye cross ways in its mouth. then on the next sighting it had it about half way in, head first. I was lucky enough to land it and it was just an eyelash over 40", biggest northern of my life, (dont fish em' on purpose...slimey, stinky devils). we released it right away and to this day i say thank you to my buddy for catching my,way too expensive, rod n reel and handing it off to me right away.
