Default Utah lake walleye

Early bird get the worm!

Got up at 2:20 took this screen shot when I got to my spot.
Ended up catching six. I only kept two.
Four were 20 to 24 inches. Two were smaller. I caught one 2 days ago that was closer to 30" but it got off near the bank.

I love to do them fresh covered in Italian seasoned crumbs in high quality virgin olive oil....can't be beat. Remember catching my first walleye in Utah Lake when I was going to school there in the late '70's....I was so jazzed. Crunched up potato chips back then, rolled the fish in them and skillet fried....yum....

Nice work! I guess they are the white unicorns no longer.

When is dinner?

Look what I just caught. Thought I hooked the bottom. One of the hardest fighting pound for pound fish I've caught in a while

Is that an average channel cat? I caught one two days ago and it broke me off. I think it was about the same size

Love the channels from UL. That one seems a bit bigger than average from my experience. It's been over 5 years for me so I might be remembering wrong I think my average cat was around 16-20 inches. Anything bigger than 26 or so was some great pole bending fun.

The average size catfish I catch out of UL are around 6 pounds. The biggest I have caught and reeled in is 15 pounds. I have caught several that ran my 10 pound line off the spool, so I don't know how big they were.

Try those walleye cheeks.
