Angler's 33-Inch Walleye Catch is Every Fisherman's Dream

A lot of people love eating walleye for dinner, but this guy might have a new wall ornament.

In November 2017, Richard Lorenzen caught a walleye he'll always remember. This 33-inch, 14.5-pound behemoth is what walleye fishermen chase after forever. Lorenzen caught his trophy in the Rainy River, right on the border between Minnesota and Ontario.

It's not every day that you get to catch a fish like this. When you do, it's best to savor the moment as much as you can.

Target Walleye shared this photo on Facebook and it's understandably getting a lot of attention. THIS is what a 33" (14.5-lb) walligator looks like.... Richard Lorenzen caught her on the Rainy River (MN/ON border) in early Nov. Sheesh! Oh yeah, they caught some eaters to!!#walleye #fishing

Fishing in the cold is always a battle. Whether you're sitting on the ice, chasing trophy catfish or, in this case, catching a massive walleye, the end result always means a little more than catching a fish in 70-degree weather. We're guessing Richard forgot all about the cold once this fish was on the other end of the line. We know we would have!

Most people don't have a chance to catch a fish like this, so you have to think Lorenzen's threw this puppy on the wall. If not, you know he had a lot to eat!

Congrats, Richard!
