A Gigantic Red Deer River Walleye

 


My buddy Doug and I were chasing walleye on the Red Deer River a few days ago. Walleye takes have been quite soft and hard to detect. My indicator bobbled slightly and I set the hook. I knew I had a heavier fish on, perhaps a pike. Once I got a look at the monster walleye, I asked Doug to come over and give me a hand. He netted the giant. I was fishing with 5x tippet to boot. Luckily we landed this trophy. It was easily the largest walleye I have ever caught. A quick picture and we sent this monster back. Well over 10 pounds. You can see a Candy Corn Balanced fly in its yap!

Now that was exciting!
