Caught this one on a home-made spinner rig and live minnow. Gotta love fall fishin’. There’s something truly magical about being alone on the lake with my thoughts and a few active fish. I love it. The best part about it is that she’s still swimming.
Ok I admit, I saw him on the surface and snagged him. Strange fish. I had one of these swim right into my boat in 3 feet of water.
I was coming in from an unsuccessful walleye trip, using slip sinker rigs with leeches when I decided to use my last few leeches underneath my own dock. It paid off!
