Sophia's first walleye

Recommended Posts

I was pleasantly surprised this morning when Matt's daughter Sophia got up at 515 to fish with us. Still ended up starting late and had lines in by 6. Overall it was a slow but beautiful morning. Sophia has been on the boat many times, but hasn't really been able to handle fighting a fish while trolling until this year. She did a fantastic job today bringing in her first walleye ever, a 6 pounder she reeled in from 300 feet back. As it turned out the fish choked a tdd11 and never would have come off, but she did well enough to catch 1 barely hooked. The only exciting part was watching Matt botch the netting! Eventually somehow the fish hit the deck and neither father or daughter coulda been happier! We had 3 good shots we didnt stick, but we caught the fish we came for.....post-151276-0-31766200-1439731680_thumb.jpg

Awesome story!  Hey, what are running 300' back for Walleye?  Is that line out + board out, or are you running long coppers and/or 10 color cores?

I run up to 225' feet back on deep divers and up to 150' feet out on boards...only if I have 4-5 people.
