As the day wore on, I was starting to think I would be getting skunked again. The other guys were catching fish from their kayaks and even the local bank fishermen were reeling in walleye after walleye. Then suddenly the line was tight and a fish was hooked on the white crankbait I was throwing. Soon enough I had my first walleye from a kayak landed, photos were taken and the fish released unharmed. Yeah, I know what you're thinking..."He released one of the tastiest freshwater species known to man???" Yes I did. The Indiana DNR has an advisory on eating the fish in this river and I'm not much of a risk taker. The other guys all agreed and the fish caught from kayaks were released all day long. The local bank fishermen, well, let's just say they were living life on the edge by the looks of the dinner they were going to have.
It was another awesome day on the water with good friends, in a place I am becoming quite fond of, chasing a fish I've learned to admire. Enjoy the video!
