I enjoy chasing the walleyes with the long rod myself. This fish was 28" perhaps 10 pounds. (prespawn and quite thick) I fish for these fish from the end of march until shortly after spawn, generally swinging or stripping big streamers from around 11 P.M. to 4 A.M. I get a lot of laughs if anyone sees me. I've had well intentioned folks explain to me that there are no trout in this body of water, and guys try to help me by suggesting I might do better with jigs and a minnow on spinning equipment. This past spring I landed my PB @ 30" and very thick. No wieght taken. I release all of them to finish their parental obligations.
Sorry about the pic quality, my buddy has a serious lack of camera skills and she was gone before I saw the pic.

That is a monster! and some serious dedication... here we can only fish for them on the open water from the second week of May onwards... but I have yet to fish for them that hardcore... nice one!

I have had good success with walleye using a leech pattern that uses black rabbit strip for the back and long tail. Easy to tie, and can be deadly on trout too.
