20.0 in. Walleye caught by Dennis Huskins fishing in New Jersey on 12/08/12
20.0" Walleye caught by Dennis Huskins fishing on Saturday December 08, 2012 at 13:08 near Newton in Sussex County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a small chatter bait with clearish glow soft minnow

Been in a slump for 6 weeks. Decided today to go after a walleye. Swartswood has them and they are a fish active in the winter. I went where there is a big drop off to 35+ feet. It was cloudy and I hoped a nice fish would be a bit closer to shore to seek food. I used a weighted jigging action on a soft minnow trailing chatterbait. GOT A NICE ONE! Except for a bottom worm hooked big brown bullhead, there was no other fish bitting for me. Got it on a very light rod and reel. Great strong fight. Slow runs but strong.

Nope! He was released and swam off 1 minute later. It's hard to hold a toothy creature for a self done photo with a new confusing smart phone that is smarter than me!
