I was watching the New Fly Fisher, and guess what they were fishing for? WALLEYE
!! They started off in a lake and drifted Clousers on a sinking line. The first Walleye they got was a brute. 25" or so.
The next thing you know he has a drag burner going and thinks it's Pike, but no. The biggest stinking Lake Whitefish I have ever seen and I have seen some big ones. He said it was the biggest one he had seen. I checked the IGFA records and I am sure it would have busted every tippet record but maybe one, and even that may have been smaller than the fish he let go.
Wow. A fly fishing for Walleye show. Never saw that before.
