Went to fish for some walleye, was catching plenty but all under 15 inches. So, tried a little bigger lure (X-Rap) and nailed this huge whiper!! Very fun catching this guy, took about 15 minutes to finally get him in. Hearing that drag is such a nice sound. First big catch on my shimano walleye combo.

10lbs 27 inches :D

First fish I have decided to keep all season.

Nice fish and a good one to eat! There aren't many wipers in there - you must have had beginner's least at the 'Tooth. CL

Nice. I live so close to horsetooth but I have yet to fish it. I'm close to 2 miles away.
That fish begs me to fish there... nice catch.
