Default Night Time Lake Michigan Walleyes (pic heavy)

With the extremely unusual warm temps and no safe ice to fish within 200 miles I decided to put the luxury yacht back into service. Myself and Bossman (Guide) planned to venture our way out to a somewhat close Lake Michigan shipping port to chase those elusive Walleyes that aren't talked about to much around here. So we packed up my old beat up truck and hooked up the luxury vessel and off we went to fish the nite bite.
We got to our destination and dropped the 1974 Starcraft in and motored our way to a predetermined location. I get the boat positioned and Bossman sets his Shimano line counter to 65' back and I just push the button on my Zebco 404 and away we go. Knowing that Bossman has the program all dialed in and he would set the table and spoon feed the Poorboy it wouldn't be long before our first fish will be tossed into the cooler of death! Well within minutes Bossman yells "fish on" then I hear "snap" then I hear "what the f*ck" and by the time I turn around Bossman is fighting a fish on a broken $150 rod, so as I am laughing and giving him sh!t about his rod Bossman manages to land the first monster of the night!
The fish weighed 13.7ozs and measured 32.5".



So that big ole mamacita is tossed into the deathwell and we continued our troll. A few mintues later it was my turn to put my $26 gear to the test and my first Walleye for the night.
My first hog of the night weighed 9.4ozs and measured 28".

As the night went on we managed to lose a few and box a few, all of the rest of the fully mature female Walleyes weighed in between 4-8lbs.

We fished for a few more hours and then called it a night! So I get home and get a few hours of sleep and prepare to filet up our freshly harvested fully mature female Walleyes.

Nothing like fileting a huge female Walleye...


And this fat ole pork chop decided to feel sexy and get her lip pierced...

And finally after alot of processing it was time to chill a little and relax with a refreshing beverage......

Well I'm looking forward to spending another weekend with the boys...

I guess it is kinda nice to have the table set and be spoon fed by the Bossman! Stay tuned for Part 2......
Adios...

Poorboy

PB and BM nicely done. That patron was surely enjoyed while toasting a nice haul. That's the only tequila I'll buy for the house to drink straight.

Wow, that is a HUGE walleye. That is only a few ounces away from the 50 year old state record of 14lbs. 0 oz. Any thoughts of taking it somewhere to have it certified. That is a once in a lifetime fish (in Illinois). Great job!!!
