got out this morning with my dad, friend jim, and my brother and worked a stretch of the river between otto's and the c-ville dam from 5am-8am. all of us were throwing firetiger 1/4oz jigs with a black/blue flake skirted double-tail gary yamamoto grub. we got a few small walleyes in the 12-16 inch range and then a nice fat 20+ inch male that went about 4lbs or better hit me. i was casting downriver from a bridge cross-current. casted right next to the pylon in the slack water, started cranking right away and he wacked it as it came into the fast moving current. Will be out again some more this week :) Here's some pics of the big boy. all in all it was a very successful morning. can't wait to get out again! it was my friend jim's first trip on the fox and i think i got him hooked for life!! oh and sorry for the blurry/bad pics, forgot my good camera at home, had to use the crappy old spare one i keep in my fishing vest. it's only like 2.3 mp or somethin like that lol. oh and the water level is high, so if youre gonna get out there and wade be careful and stick to areas you know well :)
