Sorry, rated PG-13, but that has got to be the craziest walleye line we’ve ever seen in print so we had to run it #1. From this newspaper.
Article is talking about drugs that change the sex of fish — yes it really happens — being flushed down toilets and then into rivers and lakes.
For the record, if that ever happened to one of us we’d head back to the ramp as fast as we could! We’d also do that if we saw this out there:
Not this big…
Hammer down on a ‘Sippi River giant!
And another river gator, on 1/4-oz blade bait!
WI: Green Bay at night. Spooky….
Ain’t tellin’ where, WI with big fish magish Eric Haataja. Looks like a 50-lber! lol
Giant greenback! Somewhere in MB?

Tip of the Day
> Pro anglers Tommy Skarlis, Doc Samson and others have added an extra dimension to their fish-finding programs, thanks to newly enabled connectivity between a sonar unit and an Aqua-Vu underwater camera.
> Skarlis: “The power to view underwater video on my big-screen sonar is as easy as using Aqua-Vu’s Multi-Vu System.”
> “One of the best fish-finding methods is a tactic I call ‘search and identify. I use sonar to find fish marks fast, and then use the camera to identify the species, size and position of the fish on structure.”
> During his 2nd-place finish at the NWT Tournament at Leech Lake, MN, the sonar-camera setup allowed him to identify forage-sized perch, and differentiate between walleyes and other less-desirable species like pike. “Takes just a minute to drop the camera and see what’s happening on the big screen, and it’s huge for always keeping me on the right fish.”
> Samson uses his Multi-Vu setup for similar reasons: “When I mark fish on sonar but can’t get them to bite, I want to know why. Many times, the Aqua-Vu shows that the fish below aren’t walleyes at all, but big white suckers.”
> Setup requires a ‘video in’-enabled sonar unit, an Aqua-Vu Multi-Vu System, and either an RCA-to-BNC video adaptor (for Garmin and Raymarine units) or a HDS video adaptor cable (Lowrance).

That’s a 29.5 walter mitty caught by Kelly Martens on the Peace River in northern Alberta. Fooled it with a Yo-Zuri 5.25″ Crystal 3D Minnow Deep Diver (fluorescent pink) in a pool 12 feet deep.
