After showing Brendon the photos of the the Saturday outing with other DA members, He wanted to get on the ice one more time. After some begging,my wife finally said OK and we planned to hit the ice for that last time Sunday morning. We were back at the spots the produced for me on Saturday and immediately we hooked into a couple of small walleyes. Things slowed down a bit and then all of a sudden,we were catching some nice perch. Things slowed again and Brendon was bummed. I explained to him that just hang on a little bit because the walleyes love to eat perch and they should be following in soon. Just as I finish the sentence, BAM! The bobber does down and we got a fish! This guy took out a little bit of drag but Brendon stayed cool and managed to land his biggest fish ever: a 13+ Walleye. I am very proud of him!

I keep looking at the walleye and how happy he is. I think we should use it as the image for the walleye COTD section if that is ok with you JC1.

Way to go Brendon!!!

He sure was a calm, cool, fish catching little guy the day we were out when he was bouncing between our shelters.

I'm glad he got an eye and a nice size one at that!
