    Likely to have access to a certified scale........
    or maybe it was so big it had to be butchered.;)

    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.

    You heard correct. Tough to find a better fish battered and fried.

    Was it caught under an indicator? That would be a brute to tackle on a 5wt. Now was it caught on the Columbia?

    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.

    Seems to be a bit of confusion. Apparently that picture first appeared on a North Dakota website.

    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

    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.

    The fella listed lives in Pasco, so it sounds like it may be new WA record.
