A very happy day was had for one fisherman who landed and released the walleye of a lifetime.
Ryan King said that “today is a personal milestone for me as a sportsman.” King was able to boat a walleye that was 32 inches long and weighed an amazing 15.2 pounds!
Pictures taken by his father-in-law Edward Rossi showed a fish with an incredible 24 and a half-inch girth.
King stated that the big ‘eye was bursting with eggs “so she was given a big wet kiss and released”
Congratulations are in order for a good hearted and skilled angler who not only landed a walleye of a lifetime, but set it free to fight again!
Big thanks to Ryan King for sharing his adventure with all of us and making us crazy to go walleye fishing in the future!
