2013 Door County Walleyes

This past week, just like the last thirteen years Karen and I have been fishing for the walleye of our dreams.  My buddies had fished the week before and only had three fish with the largest being a 29.  On Thursday, just like in the past the board went back and a battle was on.  I could see the fish down ten feet and it looked like a dandy.  When I went to net the fish I knew it was big.  It was not until I pulled the net in and laid the fish in the bottom of the boat, did I realize how big.  We started shooting pictures and after a couple pictures this fish seemed heavier then other big walleye from the past.  The walleye went thirty-three inches and weighed a little over thirteen pounds!! I thank the fish gods for allowing this fish to bite one of my lines.  We had a great week, catching a few over thirty.  Karen caught her largest at 31.25 and is was the prettiest walleye I have seen.  We pulled harnesses all week and the best were Northland Fishing Tackle and BigEye Custom Lures blades pulled behind Off Shore boards and Guppy weights.
