  2. Why is he in a grocery store?
     
  3. Likely to have access to a certified scale........
    or maybe it was so big it had to be butchered.;)
     
  4. Yummie!!!
     
  5. What a pig.

    Ive always heard walleye are delicious. Id love to find out.

  6. One of my fondest travel memories is of a Walleye fish and chips from a red lobster in WI. I could have died happy that evening.
     

  7. You heard correct. Tough to find a better fish battered and fried.
     
  8. Was it caught under an indicator? That would be a brute to tackle on a 5wt. Now was it caught on the Columbia?
     
  9. That's far to big to be prime dinner faire. The only real value is as a wall mount/ego stroker. If you want to eat one keep one within a few inches of the legal size.

  10. Walleye are delicious!
     
  11. Seems to be a bit of confusion. Apparently that picture first appeared on a North Dakota website.
     
  12. What makes you say that? I thought it first posted to Northwest Sporstman magazine. The fish(and the grocery store he is in) is from tri-cities
     
  13. I've now seen it posted as being from both Washington and ND.
    I originally heard it was caught in the Columbia.
    I'm not sure where it was caught now. Regardless it is still a toad walleye.

  14. The fella listed lives in Pasco, so it sounds like it may be new WA record.
     
  15. Caught in McNary pool
     
  16. I got the word this afternoon that it has been officially certified as a new WA state record!
     
  17. Always neat to see a record, but in my mind, it would have been a better personal memory.

    Sounds like fun...[​IMG]
