Walleye Fishing Febrauary 2012 Mississippi River

Well fishing was so slow I decided to give it up for a few days only to hear that the fish turned on on the Mississippi River. Then I went and caught 32 fish. Here is one I caught today before the wind got too bad. It was 27″ and weighed 8.6#.

To the locals who removed all my land marks, it didn’t stop me at all, it actually helped me because I stumbled into the mother load. You idiots might as well give it up, you’ll never stop me. You followed, mocked my passes, dropped anchors, sent other people my way, removed my land marks but you haven’t stopped me. I can get new marks with ease.
