Last month I shared a picture of a banded walleye (Top Item #3) and said that it made me wonder if there was anyone out there who had a collection of fishing bands on a Minn Kota lanyard, like you see waterfowl hunters do with their call lanyards. Sure enough I got a message from one fella who had started a collection….
Steve Nelson from ND stacked up 5 bands over a 3-day fishing trip to Lake Oahe by Fort Yates, ND. Said they were pulling cranks in about 12-15′ and it was a snaggy mess ‘cuz they had to be right next to the flooded brush to get bit. Ended up losing about 50 cranks over those 3 days, but recouped a chunk of that fee after nabbing a $100 reward tag on one of the fish.
