Default 11/12 with a crappy pic

Hit the river at a 4:30 in search of walleye and sauger. River is very low and very clear. Tied on an x-rap within 5 minutes i had 2 saugers about 15-16 inches.
Moved up river and fished a current break twitching that x-rap and got slammed by a nice 19" walleye. Set up my digital camera with the timer took the pic and the camera shut off, low battery. I said to my self at least i got the picture.
Hour later with nothing i decided to try back to one of the spots i fished already first cast i got hit didnt feel to big at first but then he realized he was hooked. She took off into the current screaming drag, now this is a big fish. Get her to shore, my camera is dead
Decided to try anyways with the camera, set it up pressed the button and waited and it shuts off
I had to get a picture of this fish, pulled out my camera phone took a picture which does the fish no justice and release her to fight another day.

A rough measurement was 25" but she was obese. Had to weight 6.5 7 pounds, i am still excited cant wait to get back.

Maybe not the best pic, but you can tell that it is a quality 'eye.
Good job.
In light of the fact that the earth is 2/3 water and 1/3 land, it is clear that our time should be divided. 2/3 fishing and 1/3 work.
