A lot of people love eating walleye for dinner, but this guy might have a new wall ornament.
Just as November rolled in, 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.
Whoa...so 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.
Most people don't have a chance to catch a fish like this, so you have to think Lorenzen's throwing this puppy on the wall. If not, you know they have a lot to eat!
