I went out to the channel yesterday to target walleye for the first time. Expectations were low because I had never fished for them before, but apparently I did the right research to hook into a couple of quality fish. My first was 22.5 inches and then later I landed this good looking 26 inch fish. There were a dozen or so other boats in the neighborhood fishing for walleye as well so I guess the fishing is pretty good right now. I pulled a worm harness behind a smile blade with some beads and a small corkie. I was a little unimpressed by the fight the fish put up, but they are really neat fish to look at, and what gnarly teeth! Walleye is the ling cod of the river.
