Today’s Top 5
Fishful Thinker guide Ronny Castiglioni caught this 32-INCH Carter Lake walleye 2 days ago using a suspending jerkbait. That is a moose!
Another giant ‘by-catch’ walleye.
By-catch = unintentional. Caught by a fly fisherman using a “fry pattern:”
Flies?? Are we using lures that are too big??
Would you brag about this?
Cool catch, possible NH record white sucker, but…would you brag about having an ice sucker record? Maybe not on a first date….
> Waterman said he caught the fish in 32 feet off Godfrey Point using a glo-in-the-dark, Nils Master jig.
If you think that coffee idea is weird, how ’bout these:
Third from last but beat Sweden and Norway. Ukraine won it followed by Finland, where it was held, and then Russia. But Nick Schertz of the USA finished 10th in the individual competition.
Here’s where they fished — Findland, but looks like MN or Canada!
About fishing. Cool. All kids need to learn how to speak walleye.
Will open up 22 miles of river for Erie walleye to spawn in.

RIP fishing brother.
Tip of the Day
A few solid basics from Kyle Weisenburger:
> Location: “When walleye move into the river to stage for the spawn, they are going to look for gravel/rocky areas…will hold in deeper holes below the riffles until they are ready to spawn.”
> Water Levels: “If you walk into the river early in the day and the water was just below the top of your waders, rising water may put you in a difficult position to return…safety needs to be the #1 priority….”
Quote of the Day
We keep track on a clicker right here. And…when we quit this morning, I think we ended up [with] 144.
– Guy from Iowa who drove with a buddy 6.5 hours to get to the Fox River, WI to fish the walleye run. They fished 3.5 days, so that averages out to 41 walleyes a day. Worth the trip!
