21-23 ft Bandits.
They really slowed down at 10:30. Called it Quits at 1:30. .9 -1.5. I got to try out my new cleaning table a friend made me.
Great pictures of some really nice fish. Would almost think you were fishing with the other member that posted 13 fish on 12-20 just above your post. Good job and thanks for sharing.

Nope. Never left the east side. Almost did a couple times. Had fire drills early. One was 5 on at once. 2-29” twins. Then bite slowed but caught enough to not move.

Same general area today was good. We started out east of channel and then moved west. All our fish today were on the bigger side. Best lure was a Red Headed Step Child 70 back at 1.2 mph in 17-19 FOW.

Very nice fish. They actually look pretty close to wall hangers. Thanks for sharing.

I can not believe you would post a picture wearing that... SO outdated! Supposed to be wearing Sitka or ..... lol...
That is a Goretex Thinsulate suit that I bought over 30 years ago and I have wore the crap out of it and it is still great. The hat is new though.

Just a little curious Mike, any weight or length on those beauties?
No we did not weigh or measure them. The last one of the day my buddy caught though was bigger than the two I got in the photos which were the first ones we caught.

Nice fish no matter what. Congrats and thanks for sharing the fish porn. (especially since I have not been able to get out and catch any myself)

I normally don't do much fall fishing, but this year I got out a few times. Not really a good time to catch the eating sized fish that I prefer these days, but still fun none-the-less. My buddy and I have caught a lot of big walleyes over the years and we had the conversation on that last trip on what it would take for a "wall hanger". I've got a 14 pound walleye on the wall now, so probably 15 lbs. for me. My buddy was not sure.

I've got a 12.3 pound on the wall and I don't believe my wife would be impressed with another "fish" on the wall. Deer horns go in the garage but she has put up with the one fish. I really hope I don't have to make the decision as I don't know where the fish would go if I did catch it. That is what happens with 55 years of marriage. You get an idea of what you can and can't do.:lol::lol:
