Rock crawlers of the week!
It’s Jake, from fish farm, with a 30″ cash grabber:
> Jake’s dad said, “Bet him $100 he couldn’t catch a 30″ walleye…as you can see, he’s a $100 richer! He’s had a smile from ear-to-ear the whole day and you know what…so have I.”
Logan P. cracked this 28″ beefcake pulling a Lindy Rig/crawler in 30′. Classic Mille Lacs summer pattern — better sneak out there before the season closes:

Walleye big enough to impress Al.
> “You go to TargetWalleye.com and see all these pictures of big walleye up to 34 inches, but pay attention to the big water systems they are coming from. If you fish the Great Lakes, western reservoirs or a handful of lakes up in Canada…8 lbers are common fare.

> “Water temps are slowly starting to cool and the walleyes have their feedbags on. Drifting with spinners, anchoring/jigging, and downrigging crankbaits all have been successful. Try fishing in 28-32′ 4 miles out of Lighthouse Gap.
> “There’s been excellent walleye fishing all over Green Bay. Water temps are warm so walleye metabolism rates are high — which means eating is a priority. That being said (with warm water temps) handling and releasing walleyes properly is key to ensure survival rates.
