11.5 lb. Walleye caught by Tim Fancher fishing on Saturday August 31, 1991 at 23:30 near Cape Vincent in Jefferson County, New York (NY), United States North America using a Black and Purple jig a Roundhead

My most memorable and meaningful catch to date. My Grandparents spent their summers on the St. Lawrence River near Cape Vincent, NY and Labor Day weekend was always a fun time. During our 1991 trip, my Grandfather asked me to go Walleye fishing with him which means a great deal to me now as he passed away the next summer. We left their dock around 9:30pm and planned to head home around midnight. We headed straight to the "Iron Man" on the Western end of Carlton Island and started jigging. We caught several nice 'Eyes but nothing compared to beauty that I landed around 11:30! I hooked into what I thought was a snag but she started to pull and once landed, my Grandfather said, "now that's the biggest Walleye that I've ever seen!" Not sure if he intended to make me feel good or if it really was the largest he had seen. I will never forget that moment and truly miss those fishing trips with Poppy!
