fell asleep for a bit after work and dinner wide awake when the family was going to bed so I grabbed a rod and my bike to burn off some energy not expecting much. arrived at my first spot at 12:15 last night after about 5 casts with a sz8 husky jerk it gets crushed. i.m thinking nice bass then on a quick roll on the surface I see the green eye, its a big ol eye 6#9oz 26.5" from the thickness of the fish and sunk in belly i'm guessing post spawn female took a couple pics and free she swam only one other hit baby bass

Great two fish. Glad to see the changing weather didn't put the smallies in a negative mood.

What body of water was the walleye out of, just out of curiosity? If it's a private pond or lake, no worries. Just wondering. That's a great walleye.
